[IMAGE 1 of 9 ] An intruding major (at right of image) is attacked by a defending major of the home colony (a few majors, like this one, were much darker than the others). A leg was lost in this confrontation, though not the one being worked-on in this image. Shortly after this image was captured, the defending ‘home’ major broke off, and left the area. For the purposes of these images, I refer to the colony that is being attack (or intruded upon) as the 'home' colony.
