The Zunker Incident occured in March 1922 PD, in the early stages of the Solarian-Manticoran War.

A Solarian League Navy task force of six battlecruisers, under the command of Frontier Fleet Rear Admiral Liam Pyun, attempted to escort a Solarian-flagged merchant vessel through a wormhole nexus in the Zunker System (an ally of the Star Empire of Manticore) after the Star Empire had closed the nexus to SLN and Solarian League-flagged commercial traffic as part of Case Lacoön. The nexus was defended by a Royal Manticoran Navy task force of three heavy cruisers and four destroyers under Captain Hiram Ivanov, who was able to deter the Solarians without any loss of life (just one salvo of missiles directed to wedges).
