ABUZZ AIMS is a Star Army of Yamatai code name for an operational plan for war against the The Free State. It was created in YE 37.


In YE 30, Freespacer encroachment at Halna and Freespacer Negotiations with the Mishhuvurthyar resulted in the Freespacer Massacre and Related Battles.

Later that year, Prince Hassan used the Great Lighthouse to issue The Proclamation of Independent Worlds and started the IWL. In response, the Yamatai Star Empire formally declared war on the IWL and has ordered the Star Army of Yamatai to find and kill its members. Since then the Ninth Fleet has been assigned to conduct operations but the pace has been slow, mainly because the Star Army was busy dealing with the Second Mishhuvurthyar War and the threats of Nepleslia and Lor. In YE 36, with the war won and Nepleslia and Lor becaming allies under the Defense Arrangement Treaty (of the) Alliance of Signatory States, the Star Army was more free to operate and the SPIKE BALL plan was created to coordinate the Star Army becoming much more aggressive in hunting the IWL.

The Star Army and Yamatai Star Empire's joint declaration of war went as follows: “Be it declared by her Imperial Majesty Empress Himiko I of Yamatai, that a state of war is hereby declared between the Yamatai Star Empire (including all of its possessions) and the Independent Worlds League and all those that deliberately provide material support to the Independent Worlds League and that the Star Army of Yamatai is hereby authorized to use full and deadly force against any IWL member ships, facilities, goods, or persons and against any persons or supporters with respect given to existing treaties.”

In YE 37 reports came in that the Freespacers were mending the schism between militants and the other Freespacers. This means The Free State will now be openly supporting the IWL, making it an enemy of Yamatai.

However, by YE 38, the IWL had dissolved and Yamatai had removed the last of the Freespacers from the Star Army's enemy list, so there is no need to fight the Freespacers for now.

Political Situation

Yamatai is already at war with the following Freespacer-associated groups:

The situation is complicated by the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia which has the DIoN-Free State Protectorate Treaty and has vowed to protect the Freespacers.

Other minor factors are:


  1. Cripple the Free State's ability to:
    1. operate as a nation
    2. project any military power.

Specific Targets

  1. StratOps and its army of "Militant"-Series War Automaton robots.
  2. Infrastructure: Ley Lines and FTL communication nodes
