The Azure Sky Incident was a political protest by soldiers of the Tairendian Republic on February 19, 1998 against the peace terms of the Lunar War. Angered veterans of the conflict disguised themselves as customs inspectors and destroyed a shipment of teapots and pewterware from the Praetannic Tea Company aboard the ship SS Azure Sky.
