Seventeen years after Emergence Day, KR Zero-Five was on patrol outside of the Maelstrom barrier around Azura when the crew chief spotted something in the Serano Ocean. They flew closer and discovered a Leviathan pulling a wooden plank with two Drones on it. They reported the Locust to control and headed back to the island, worrying that the Locust would find a way through the Maelstrom somehow. A few days later, their fears were proven correct as the Locust managed to sneak a team onto the island and shut the Maelstrom off, allowing a massive invasion force to assault the island. Zero-Five was deployed to the north coast of Azura, where it spotted dozens of Gas Barges and gunboats approaching the island, like an identical force on the south shore. They reported the attack to ChairmanRichard Prescott, and noted that their forces would be spread too thin to fight the Locust.
