The Matabi

In 838 the freighter Matabi showed up in orbit to transport the Regiment to the Fanderum System.

They were taken to a prisoner of war camp on Makelbee 14 and interred for the next eighteen years. It seems that the general in command of the front needed to fill a quota for prisoners in the offensive, so he incarcerated his reinforcements.
