The Final Defense at Raynet was a last-ditch effort near the end of the Ur-Quan Slave War to stop the Ur-Quan fleet at the Raynet constellation. It is unclear when exactly this battle occurred and which races of the Alliance were involved. It is known that the Syreen Space Patrol was involved — Talana states that her sister, Diani was killed in the battle.

Talana is the only one who mentions this battle, so it is possible that the Syreen were the only Allies involved. In this case, this final defense would have been the Syreen's last stand before falling to the Hierarchy, and would have occurred after Earth had been conquered. Another possibility is that this was the final, unsuccessful attempt by the bulk of the Alliance forces to hold the Coreward Front after the Hierarchy had broken through it, ultimately pushing "beyond Raynet." This would place the battle at the end of the War but prior to the costly fight to hold Rigel and the subsequent subjugation of the Chenjesu and Mmrnmhrm.
