Steve decides to "come out fighting". He activates the Lazar/Sakulag system.
His War Sun, carrying 6 Fighters is capable of getting from his Home System to this activated system in one move because the War Sun can travel 2 hexes.
Steve also moves the Carrier in from the adjacent system. The Carrier takes 2 Ground Force units with him and places flags on the vacated planets.
Another Space Battle ensues...
