After Empress Sato I came to power after capturing the USS Defiant in 2155, her only obstacle was crushing the alien rebellion. To do this, she made General Shran of the Andorian Imperial Guard her new consort - and head Military Commander - to help unite the Terran Empire once and for all. However, Shran soon mounted a coup and unseated Sato, and proceeded to mount increasingly brutal attacks against rebel targets, including the bombing of unarmed civilian targets (something even Sato would never do). When Sato returned to power, she had Shran executed for his crimes. (ENT - Mirror Universe novel: Age of the Empress)
