|Affiliation:||New Systems Commonwealth|
Rakel Ben-Tzion was part of the Triumvirate of Tarazed responsible for locating and contacting the Andromeda Ascendant, so that they could reconnect with the rest of the galaxy and sign the New Systems Commonwealth charter. Unfortunately after years of Kalderan attacks, many on Tarazed began to favor isolationalism - so much so that when the matter came up for a vote, Ben-Tzion and her pro New Commonwealth faction lost. Refusing to accept defeat, she set in motion a planned fake Magog attack, which ended in the death of one of Tarazed's Home Guard officers. When it was discovered that the destroyed Magog craft had been constructed from materials from the local solar system, Ben-Tzion's deception was exposed and she was removed from office. However, in the end, Tarazed did choose to join the New Systems Commonwealth.
