After the discovery of the Kharaa breed, the Frontiersmen had planned many attacks on the planets that were already in the aliens' control. One ship assigned to such a mission was called "Starved", due to the nature of it's objectives. A relatively small planet had been reported to be under alien control, and due to the large amounts of resources situated on the planet, the Frontiersmen had decided to take it. However, due to few resources being available, they could only send a small number of marines. Because of this, they decided on a new strategy - to starve the aliens out. The marines conducted quick sharp attacks on the entrances to all of the underground systems that the aliens were living in, and managed to completely block off the exits so that the aliens could not reach the surface at all. After only 2 weeks, scouts sent underground reported no sign of alien life, and that the mission had been successful. The planet was free of all alien life.
Or so they thought...
After the ship "Starved" took off to return to a nearby spacestation, about 2 days into the journy, an alarm went off. Security was fairly lax due to the fact that they didn't expect any hostiles as the mission was a success. The alarm was investigated, and to the horror of the crew, an alien settlement was discovered in the very low decks of the ship. As nearly all of the crew had been out fighting on the planet, no-one had noticed in the virtually unused storerooms of the deck, a few aliens had managed to get past the siege blockades, and found their way to the empty ship. As soon as the alien presence was discovered, officers sealed off the sections of the ship that had been taken over, and a small but extremely competent team of marines were sent down to eliminate the alien menace.
