During the Usean coup d'état, the Cassiopea was sent to monitor enemy communications. The Cassiopea took heavy fire from rebel forces and was forced to make a landing over Sandbury Desert. The Scarface and Red Bear Squadrons were dispatched on a blitz operation to rescue the crew of the E-767. It was later revealed that the Red Bear leader's wife, Jessica, was on board. She survived the crash along with the rest of the crew. Despite recurring rebel attacks, the rescue operation was successful.
