Atticus Obellan Duval ascended to the Imperial throne in 3081. His arrival triggered noticeably less celebration. Atticus' dour and bitter countenance contrasted sharply with his theatrically-inclined predecessor Gaylen. In 3082, the Emperor sent a second mission to Exioce to terraform the planet Experiment and establish a permanent Imperial presence there, putting an end to Federation ambitions in the system.
In 3098, Governor Santorini of Tau Ceti was assassinated. The Federal press was quick to blame the Empire, as Santorini had been known for lambasting the Empire in his speeches. Unusually, Emperor Atticus elected to personally rebut the accusation, but in 3101 Imperial colonists escorted by Imperial warships settled on the planet Emerald. The Federation responded by sending military forces to Emerald under Admiral O'Brien, triggering a war for the planet that would rage for the next 30 years.
