The Battle of Alta Second occurs on the day of Skyward Flight's graduation.[1][2]

Shortly after the graduation, Ironsides sent the entire fleet of the Defiant Defense Force to protect a falling shipyard, in the hope of preserving and harvesting the shipyards acclivity rings, thus leaving the base vulnerable. As expected, the Krell attack the DDF ships, attempting to destroy the shipyard and acclivity rings. This attack, however, was a diversion planned by the Krell so they could gain an opening to directly attack and destroy Alta Base. A second force of Krell, including a Lifebuster, went to attack Alta Base while it was undefended. Spensa defended the base in a damaged Poco by anticipating the movement of the Krell using her Cytonic abilities, however, was eventually shot down. She managed to land her ship successfully, despite the damage it had taken. Cobb, piloting M-Bot, found Spensa and gave her control of the ship so she could rejoin the battle. When the Lifebuster dropped its bomb Spensa jumped it away to save Alta Base and Igneous Cavern.[1][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
