History[edit]

Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

The Eleventh Scorpion Dragoons was largely populated by solahma warriors and older warriors. These warriors sought nothing more than a glorious death in battle. The Cluster is considered little better than planetary militia.[1] They were stationed on Marshall in 3061 and still in position in 3067.[2][3]

In 3079 the Cluster was recalled to Roche, from here it moved to Waypoint 531, before continuing to the Umayyad Caliphate early 3080. As the solahma were left on Roche as a rearguard it seems strange that the Dragoons were included in this force, unless they had been rebuilt considerably after 3067.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Pavan Ben-Shimon.[1][3] In 3086 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Anna Wick.[5]

Tactics[edit]

Known for deceptive tactics in battle.

Composition History[edit]

3061[edit]

5 Trinaries - rated Green and Reliable. The Green rating seems at odds with its solahma status.[1]

3067[edit]

The Cluster was a 80% full strength - Green and Reliable.[3]

3086[edit]

The Cluster was a 45% full strength - Regular.[5]

Game Rules[edit]

Though capable of Off-Map Movement, their low morale results in a +1 penalty to all Piloting and Gunnery Rolls and a -2 penalty on Initiative Rolls.[6]
