Shaidar Haran in the Deeps
Less good news followed. On the same day Admiral Carsdale left Caitlen station, so did the fleet of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Why they would not say, though they did reveal their course was into the Perseus Deeps towards Calliden. Jellicoe could only presume their ongoing personal war with the fleet of Shaidar Haran was to be rekindled. Jellicoe was correct. Several days after Carsdale's victory astropaths at Caitlen and Corticant received a message confirming that a battle had taken place in the Deeps. Once again the chaos fleet got the upper hand, and the Mechanicus fleet reported the loss of three vessels with at least another seriously damaged. Two of the chaos vessels were destroyed, but the loss of three valuable mechanicus ships was a bitter blow for such a minor success.
