They would never have become such a major power bloc by lying, cheating,
and stealing their way there, now would they have?  ;-)

think so.

Holovid records indicate it was *heavily* damaged, streaming atmosphere
from hundreds of breaches in the hull. However, the NSL forces
continued to fire on it, despite the fact that there was *no* return
coming from it. It was not given the chance to withdraw from the field,
nor surrender. It was, to put it bluntly, brutally butchered.

The NSL officers on trial got off lucky. There are still those who
are calling for their heads for war crimes (and during peacekeeping
operations, too!).

Should have thought of that before you entered the system trying to
assault a ship under protective custody of the UN.
