The Liberation of Braxis was an operation organized by Admiral Calliope in order to destroy the second FS7 Psi Disrupter prototype which would allow him to regain control over Braxis.
After the FS7 were expelled from Tarsonis, Calliope held another conference with Jim Raynor, Fenix ... and Terran Dominion Emperor Arcturus Mengsk (who had been kept in cold sleep until then). Mengsk was very happy about the previous battle, which only made Calliope and Vassily happy. Both of them had had reasons to hate the Federation Strike Seven, due to their actions during the Invasion of the World of Harmony, and the two made these reasons well known to Mengsk. Admiral Calliope unfroze him because he needed the use of his psi-emitters. Mengsk had been frozen for quite some time, and was unaware that the FS7 had found and activated the Psi Disrupter. With his emitters, Admiral Calliope would have the means to gather enough time to destroy the Psi Disrupter and confront the FS7. In return for Mengsk's cooperation, he offered him to help him take bac the World of Harmony, the peaceful world, which at that point was still under FS7 occupation.
Mengsk wanted to know how he could trust him, and he responded that if he didn't cooperate, he could remain Emperor of an eight by eight cell for the rest of his life. Mengsk was "persuaded" to join Admiral Calliope's operation by this kind of talk.
Meanwhile, the TSC and its allies have plans for both the FS7 and its adversaries.
Captain Sherman and his Marine Raiders descended upon Appleloosa, home of the Psi Disrupter and a number of FS7 troops. Sherman's forces, including ghosts and M5A2 Atlas tanks (with Gauss cannons), destroyed the poorly defended fusion reactors powering the Psi Disrupter. The Psi Disrupter sat on a well-defended hilltop, but was inactive at that moment with the generators destroyed. As Sherman's forces retreated, Mengsk sent down an SCV carrying a psi-emitter to the surface of Appleloosa. The SCV pilot quickly found a small number of uncontrolled equestrians which the FS7 were aware of. The psi-emitter attracted the ponies, enabling Calliope to take control of them. The SCV pilot roped in construction builders (capable of constructing a base), rifleponies, guardsponies, and even special equestrian soldiers (the Devouring One, a powerful royal guard, the Hunter Killer, a powerful unicorn guard, and the Torrasque, a powerful manticore), tangling with FS7 outposts along the way. When these ponies had all been added to Calliope's forces, the SCV requested and gratefully received transport away from the FS7.
The TSC, accompanied by the Brotherhood of Steel and the New California Republic, begins separate attacks on both forces, but with the newly-arrived Adv. Crusader tanks, Adv. Paladin tanks, Tomahawk launchers, Adv. MLRS, Adv. Laser Humvees, Adv. Laser Comanches, Apache Longbows, Adv. King Raptors, Combat Chinooks, and Adv. Aurora Alpha bombers, they managed to hold the line.
Admiral Calliope quickly built up a strong force and attacked the FS7 base built around the Psi Disrupter. Despite the well-designed FS7 defenses, the Equestrian Marines defeated them and destroyed the Psi Disrupter.
