group to steal the Centauri relic known as the Eye (worth the price of a small habitable planet) and take him "hostage." According to the Centauri fop, the Eye would soon be on the space station Babylon 5. Kiro paid well, so Six agreed. After purchasing hardware upgrades and the Lady Fortune (an investment that took five years of saving), the plan was set in motion. A small team positioned themselves on the station to steal the Eye and kidnap Kiro. As a distraction, the Raider's fighter wing attacked the station. While the station was defending itself, Six's team accomplished their mission and hijacked Kiro's transport. With the Centauri and the Eye in the Raider mothership's docking bay, the plan worked despite heavy fighter losses (eleven craft were destroyed and four were captured). Lord Kiro learned too late that instead of allowing him to leave upon final payment Six planned to ransom both Kiro and the Eye to the Centauri government. for many times more credits than Kiro had paid. Unfortunately, a Shadow Battlecruiser obliterated the Lady Fortune and recovered the Eye for a client, Londo Mollari.
Despite the slaughter of Six's group, a new group led by Dagana Shakti emerged. Their targets were transports laden with morbidium (a vital metal used in phased plasma weapons strictly controlled by Earth Alliance). They bought shipment schedules directly from AreTech Consolidated Mining (a Martian mining company headquartered on Earth). AreTech sold out information about its shipments directly from their office on Mars. The raiders paid market price for the shipment in exchange for a ship's schedule, in turn selling for a vast profit on the black market. With the discovery of the artificial element "supermorbidium," AreTech hoped to profit from the soon-to-be useless morbidium. Shakti's organization, less its income and hunted by Earth Alliance forces, headed into Non-Aligned Territories.
