The Meteor Attack on Buenos Aires occurred in the 23rd century[1] as a meteor struck the city of Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, provoking total destruction of the city, killing over 8.7 Million, and wounding a further 12.5 million.

HistoryEdit

Thirty years before the First Interstellar War, a meteorite from the Klendathu System was deviated from its star during Operation Fedmil, the first contact in Klendathu. Thirty years later, the meteorite reached and collided with Earth, destroying Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, killing over 8.7 million, and wounding a further 12.5 million.[2]

However, the United Citizen Federation claimed that the Arachnid launched a "Bug Meteor" using Bug Plasma from the Klendathu system towards Earth and destroyed the city of Buenos Aires.

AftermathEdit

After the incident, the Federation declared war on the Bugs and began preparations for the invasion of Klendathu.[3]
