Why would the GTA deploy a GTI destroyer to face a Shivan group led by the Lucifer?

No doubt a GTI destroyer is far more precious than a regular have. It carries special equipment, systems and weapons(all to be used in covert operations and such). I don't see the point in wasting such a warship in a "regular" battle.

...unless the GTI's tasks go well beyond that of a normal Intelligence.

Sometimes, sacrifices must be made to ensure the success of a larger operation (cue Ronald Weasly in Harry Potter and the Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone).

Perhaps the rogue Terran intelligence branch had a hidden motive in deploying the Legion, but got too close or underestimated the Lucifer's offensive capabilities.

        Um, because . . . we're talking about the complete extinction of the human race maybe?

Vasudan race, actually, in that particular battle.

Including, perhaps, some that they wanted to try to breach the Lucifer's shields with?

Maybe this is when "the Lucifer attacked the Vasudan outpost in the Diones system, and the Vasudans three different missile prototypes, with no luck whatsoever." But of course that would've been a Vasudan destroyer not the Legion...

The FreeSpace Ref Bible (the canonicity of which debatable)

Debatable? How? It's the Word of :v:. If anything in there isn't contradicted by what we see in-game, I'd say it's canon.

That's my view too, I only said it so Mars wouldn't take out the forks.

And that the intro text during the FS2 intro identifies it as the Battle of Deneb.

Boystrous 19 year old temp at work slapped me in the face with an envelope and laughed it off as playful. So I shoved him over a desk and laughed it off as playful. It's on camera so I can plead reasonable force.  Temp is now passive.

Diones was never identified. It could be the Vasudan name for Deneb is what I'm getting at here.
