When the Utwig and the Supox go into battle against the Kohr-Ah to balance the Doctrinal Conflict between the two Ur-Quan subspecies, they initially fight separated - the Supox at Antares and the Utwig in the Horologii stars.

However, they face grievous losses — especially the Supox — both at the hands of the Kohr-Ah and the Kzer-Za (who did not recognize the Supox and Utwig efforts on their behalf), because of their inadequate tactics. After a while, though, they realize that they should work in tandem, the Utwig Juggers providing cover and absorbing the Kohr-Ah Marauders' attack, while the Supox Blades wait for the depletion of the enemy battery, at which point they charge.

As a consequence they split their forces between the two fronts at Antares and at Horologii. At some point, the Antares front is abandoned, and the combined forces of the Supox and the Utwig proceed towards the Horologii constellation to intercept the Kohr-Ah, eventually being overwhelmed by their superior numbers and forced to withdraw, with their forces severely crippled. The casualties, heavily disproportionate, consisted in only a few dozen ships for the Kohr-Ah, but much more for the Supox and Utwig. The entire offensive takes 160 days, not counting the 21 days necessary for the initial advance towards the Kohr-Ah space and the additional 21 days necessary for the retreat.
