The Maya Sector Detachment or Maya Sector Frontier Fleet Detachment was a local unit of the Solarian League Navy's Frontier Fleet. It behaved in many ways as a rogue unit under Governor Oravil Barregos, conducting operations contrary to the interests of the greater Solarian League and without the foreknowledge of superior officers in Frontier Fleet.[1] (SI4)

Following the declaration of independence by the Mayan Autonomous Regional Sector, the Maya Sector Detachment became the Mayan Autonomous Regional Sector Navy. (HH14)

Personal Affairs[]

Chain of Command[]

The next persons in charge were commanding officers of Destroyer Squadron 3029 and Destroyer Flotilla 2960.


It seems Captain Rozsak didn't use full staff. Since 1918 PD he was supported by:

  • Commander Edie Habib – chief of staff
  • Lieutenant Colonel Kao Huang – senior ground combat advisor, deputy to the Captain Rozsak
  • Lieutenant Commander Jiri Watanapongse – intelligence officer
  • Lieutenant Jerry Manson – assistant intelligence officer †
  • Lieutenant Karen Georgos – communications officer
  • First Lieutenant Thandi Palane - special operations specialist (1918-1919 PD)



The Maya Sector was supported by the Frontier Fleet with Destroyer Flotilla 2960, consisting of eighteen War Harvest class destroyers and three elderly Morrigan class light cruisers as division flagships. (CS1,CS2)

Building Program[]

In 1918 PD, Destroyer Flotilla 2960 was dispatched to the Republic of Erewhon, ostensibly to 'show the flag', but in fact to undertake negotiations regarding use of Erewhon shipyards for Maya Sector warship construction, as well as some clandestine black operations. (CS1)

The excuse for expansion of the Maya Sector Detachment was the Havenite-Manticoran Wars, resumed in 1920 PD. So Maya builtup program was described for Solarian federal authorities as "emergency program". Sixty percent of its costs were financed by debentures signed by federal government.

In February 1921 PD Maya contracted Carlucci Industrial Group of Erewhon was ready to start laying down their first locally designed SD(P)s. At least first half dozen of that vessels belonged to the Maya Sector authorities.

Naval Units[]

By 1921 PD, the detachment had been enlarged by new construction of Maya designed ships built in Erewhon yards. They included cruisers, destroyers and arsenal ships, all rather more capable than Solarian League ships of those classes. So, immediately prior to the Battle of Torch the Detachment's order of battle was:

LCR 7036 was supported by three Masquerade class arsenal ships. DF 2960 was supported by three elderly Morrigan-class light cruisers as division flagships.

Service Record[]

  • In 1918 PD, during the Verdant Vista incident, a destroyer flotilla under the command of Captain Rozsak, assisting a RMN heavy cruiser commanded by Captain Michael Oversteegen, deterred an attempted intervention by a much larger task group of the Mesan Space Navy attempting to reverse the successful slave revolt on Congo.
  • In October 1921 PD, the reinforced Maya Sector Detachment, under the command of Rear Admiral Rozsak, defeated in the Torch System the People's Navy in Exile, a group of rogue ex-State Security members secretly directed by the Mesan Alignment - see: Second Battle of Congo. (SI2)
