Battle of Velpare: Battle occurring in -258 near Velpare (1623 Core) between raiding naval squadrons of the Sylean Federation and patrolling squadrons of the Interstellar Confederacy. The Confederacy forces, poorly organized and coordinated, were easily defeated piecemeal by the Sylean commander Admiral Rudolf.

Duped by his easy victory over the system's space defenses, the Admiral decided to disobey orders and also invade the primary planet with his ships' troops. His troops met a devastating defeat at the hands of a well-organized planetary army and defense militia.

Upon his returm to Sylea, Rudolf was court-martialled for overstepping his orders and was expelled from the Sylean Navy in disgrace. -core TD 9
