Following the loss of Hamman's World to the swarms of Hive Fleet Kraken, the survivors of the Imperium's forces that managed to evacuate, were moved to the Moran system. Reinforcements, originally intended for Hamman's World, were re-directed to the main plants of the Moran system, Maxima Moran and Babel's Dock. New defenses against the Tyranid threat, were rapidly constructed on both planets and battered units were brought up to strength, by enforced conscription from the local populations. With their preparations completed, the Imperium's forces waited for the Tyranids to arrive. They did not have long to wait, as Hive Fleet Kraken soon darkened their skies with Mycetic Spores, after overwhelming both planets' orbital defenses.
