Initial Edit

Post-Spindle Edit

As Lynx became part of the Star Kingdom of Manticore Lynx terminus wasn't a responsibility of the 10th Fleet. That's why Lynx teminus picket[7] was independent from the 10th Fleet. (HH12)

After the Second Battle of Manticore, Tenth Fleet was further reinforced with light units led by Captain Grierson.
