The Maanen incident occurs, another premature Klein tap - but in this case resulting in an explosion some twenty orders of magnitude more intense in scope, some twelve times the mass-energy of the Sun. Though it was an automated facility, nothing within Van Maanen's star's vicinity survived the tachyon burst, not even the white dwarf itself, nor the three stargates that were linking it.
Evacuation plans for Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani, and 61 Cygni are put into place immediately. Shield programs are enacted for these as well as more remote systems, Sol included, in order to protect the systems for the intense oncoming radiation burst.
