History[edit]

The Thirty-third Phalanx were stationed on New Kent in 3060. The Cluster was little more than an enlarge "police" unit. The Trinary of Elementals provided security to vital facilities in the Steel Viper capital, such as the Mercer Building.[1]

By 3067 the cluster had moved to Grant's Station.[2]

The final fate of the Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Nu Galaxy in 3074 or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[3]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Orien.[1] By 3067 he had won the Stoklas Bloodname.[2]

Tactics[edit]

The unit had the task of defending important assets against any other Clans and also had unofficial permission to strike against forces which were a threat to their security.[1]
