The first delegation officially sent by the Syreen to the New Alliance of Free Stars in the Second War. As with the humans, the Syreen were required to maintain a Starbase above their homeworld, aboard which their best-trained starship crew served, maintaining and repairing Hierarchy ships. When the human Captain Zelnick convinced Syreen Commander Talana to rejoin the war after uncovering the treachery of the Mycon, Talana sent a handpicked delegation of her best officers and crew to accompany the Vindicator and recover the Syreen Penetrator fleet, which had been mothballed by the Ur-Quan on a faraway world at the end of the war. Given the sexual habits of Syreen and humans in close quarters, it was thought best to house the Syreen delegation in their own, separate vessel in order to maintain discipline. Even so, it proved impossible to prevent some field research in the area of human/Syreen xenology from taking place when the shuttle arrived at the Earth Starbase, and other useful work was impeded as requests to do field studies among the Syreen skyrocketed.
