Alkaid I, 2007-03-10: Beyond the veil beat The Black Pearl after losing the first round to win in a four-round sinking blockade for the right to colonize Alkaid.
Alkaid II, 2007-03-17: Beyond the veil defeated The Black Pearl again in three rounds to defend Alkaid.
Alkaid III, 2007-03-24: Beyond the veil defended Alkaid for the second week in a row, beating The Eye in a three-round non-sinker. This was also The Eye's first defeat in a blockade.
Alkaid IV, 2007-06-03: Beyond the veil won the first and only round of this non-sinking blockade to defend Alkaid. Due to apparently being unprepared for a defence against potential attacker This End Up, a pre-blockade arrangement between Beyond the veil and contender Requited Desires was made. This forced an Ocean Master to terminate the blockade during Round 2.
Alkaid V, 2007-07-21: Beyond the veil defeated The Enlightened in a five-round, 15 strength sinking blockade. During Round 5, the strength of the Brigand King was increased from zero to 1.

Alkaid VII, 2007-09-30: Another defence of Alkaid by Beyond the veil, defeating a strength 12 The Enlightened (Vargas the Mad) in 4 rounds.
Alkaid VIII, 2007-10-13: Beyond the veil defeated The Eye in a four-round sinking blockade. This was an extremely important blockade as it triggered the demise a seemingly unstoppable flag of The Eye in the following weeks.
Alkaid IX, 2007-12-01: Beyond the veil defeated a 7 strength Black Veil in a five-round sinking blockade.
Alkaid X, 2008-01-26: Beyond the veil defeated a 10 strength Fleet of his Imperial Scaled Highness in a three-round sinking blockade.
