The Cartang incident took place in 13 AHC(After Human Ch'la war) it was the first time that the two species worked together on anything. Although the Crik System was a joint colonization effort each government dealt with heir own people. When an asteroid storm threatened to wipe out all life in the system the Human and Ch'la governments began to work together to attempt to stop the asteroid storm although they succeeded. All of the governments involved suffered great losses in livesand war assets as well as civilian ships. What surprised the galaxy the most was how the survivors banded together helping each other in any way possible it was the first time it could be noted that the two species helped each other unconditionally with no thought to species.
