It must be emphasised that a full analysis of the millions of zettabytes of automated telemetric data received from the action area during the event window is a major endeavour that will take several days, at a minimum, to complete. However, the broad and superficial analysis of the available data that has been currently conducted reveals only one potentially anomalous event.

About six hours before the first known enemy attack (on the Devereaux), the K-105 observatory recorded a puzzling energy surge within the Kilrah belt. The surge was a tightly focused pulse of energy, 0.165 of a second in duration. It measured at 47 000 dG in intensity, and crossed the sub-space spectrum from mk 1772 down to mk 3500 (the lower limit of the K-105 detection equipment). The surge does not fit the profile of any known sub-space energy sources. The event occurred at 018.1441.26, and at 1502, was manually flagged as a probable false reading by technicians at the observatory to the K-105 sensor logs.

It is important at this juncture to emphasise that there is absolutely no hard evidence whatsoever linking the 1441 event with the subsequent attacks. However, the possibility does suggest itself that this surge marked the entry of the presumed enemy into the Kilrah system, perhaps via some previously unknown ultra-low-band jump-gate technology.
