- The Terran Confederation increases penetration of the Vega Sector by exploration and colonization ships.
- The TCS Iason becomes the first Terran Confederation ship to encounter the Kilrathi. Captain Andropolos beams the standard wideband non-verbal greeting to the then-unidentified ship and then waits motionlessly for twenty-two minutes. The Kilrathi then open fire and destroy the Iason with all hands.
NOTE: Claw Marks claims that the Iason was destroyed on the above date and then notes that this was '3/15/2629 Terran'. (2629.105 would be 4/15 and not 3/15). Voices of War further refers to 2629.105 as March 16, 2629.
