In 2259, the Trimuvirate was in the midst of a bloody civil war. It appealed to the Earth Alliance via John Sheridan through its embassy on Babylon 5 for aid against the rebel faction. EarthGov initially denied the request, however, due to the planet's strategic location to Narn and Centauri space, it ordered General Richard Franklin to assemble an infantry team to assist. The force attacked the rebel stronghold in Matok, on the planet Akdor, in an action codenamed Operation Sudden Death. The Operation was a success, though General Franklin suffered heavy casualties.
