Before the War

  • Tensions remained high in the aftermath of both the Battle of Donatu V and the previous war, though international relations regressed to a cold status barring the occasional skirmish
    • Major such skirmishes include:
      • 2264: Rimbor Engagement; USS Farragut vs. three Klingon warships (TNG Novel: Worf's First Adventure)
  • These tensions broke March 22, 2267, when two Klingon cruisers destroyed a Federation hospital ship in the Kalinora Sector, claiming it was on a mission of espionage. (TOS Novel: Ashes of Eden; VAN Novel: Open Secrets)
    • This attack was followed by a counterattack led by Admiral Androvar Drake destroying both cruisers, immediately followed by a general declaration of war. (TOS Novel: Ashes of Eden)
