The Sobek First Contact War
While patroling the frontiers of Terran space, a Star Navy cruiser came close to an unsurveyed system, when suddently an alarm called out before all contact was lost.
This prompted the Terran Star Navy to move a larger fleet to the area, were they found the missing cruiser free-floating in space, with a large round hole in the starboard hull.
The terran ships didn't reach the cruiser before several medium sized starships of a foreign design were shooting towards them.
The ensuing skirmish was the start of the Sobek First Contact War.
They managed to win every larger battle, but the cost in destruction of their ships was immensely expensive.
The war ended in a Terran withdrawal and an uneasy truce with the newly encountered species.
The war had simply costed too many ships and too many lives, and the Terrans needed to remuster.
The Terrans of the frontier and the Sobek started mingling and trade started to happen.
It took a long time for trust to build, and soften the blow from the aggressive first contact, but today Sobek can be encountered living in most Terran space.

War reparations and revenge for the lost lives drove the Terrans to instigate more battles than nescessary before learning their lesson.
It started with a picture in my mind of a tiger man in a small spacecraft following a giant tiger in space, in the tone of old saturday morning cartoons and the Heavy Metal animated movie.
Then came the idea of his occational ally, a woman in space flying a small asteroid. The more I wrote on her, the more I got intrigued by the past, I deviced.
Right now the flow is focused on her background - namely all related to The Genesis Project.
I do all of the writing and almost all of the drawing myself at this point.
My hope for Star Tiger is a published story or a graphical novel, but my big dream is an animated show.
