By early 2509, the Alliance managed to occupy major trade ports throughout the system. Blockades were set up and the Alliance began heavy searches of all incoming and outgoing transports. Effectively, a war of attrition continued throughout the remainder of the war … specifically on the planet Verbena.
A tight schedule was put into effect for civilian trade vessels. Through customs stations, transports had to register and await clearance to continue through the system. Once cleared, ships and crews were required to follow a strict timetable and preassigned flight path. Straying from the path or falling behind schedule resulted in arrest and detention while the ship was searched.
