The planet of Torfa was home to a group of Skrull refugees. The Kree spy Soh-Larr infiltrated the planet to find information on their activities, and Starforce was sent by the Supreme Intelligence to retrieve him. However, unbeknownst to the Kree, the Skrull general Talos had already managed to capture him and extract his memories.
Ronan the Accuser started the attack by leading his three vessels on a bombing run against Torfan settlements. Following this, Starforce landed to search for Soh-Larr. While Vers found what she believed to be Soh-Larr in a temple, the rest of Starforce was ambushed by a group of Skrulls disguising themselves as Torfans. While Starforce defeated the Skrull force with no casualties, "Soh-Larr" revealed himself to be Talos and abducted Vers.
The Skrulls captured Vers in order to find Mar-Vell so they could located the Light-Speed Engine by reading her memories. While Vers escaped from the Skrulls, the ambush would kick off a series of events that led to her discovering her true identity as Carol Danvers. In addition, she eventually discovered that the Kree, not the Skrulls, were the aggressors in the Kree-Skrull War, leading to her deserting Starforce and siding with the Skrulls.
