Third Frontier War (979 to 986)
The long period of uneasy peace between the Imperium
and the Zhodani Consulate erupted
into war in 979 with simultaneous blows by the
Zhodani in the Querion and Jewell subsectors. Imperial reaction was deficient,
and the hostilities continued for nearly six years with little to show for
it. The armistice finally signed in 986 gave each side little, and
it brought about the abdication of Emperor Styryx in 989.
