The 35th Lyran Guards were a regiment of the Lyran Guards brigade active during the Star League era.[1]

History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

During the Star League era the 35th Lyran Guards was one of six regiments within the 4th Lyran Guards Division, one of five Divisions of active regiments within the Lyran Guards brigade in the closing decades of the Star League's existence.[1]

Like the other regiments of the Guards during this era, the 35th lacked any particular political ties - either regional or familial - unlike regiments in other brigades; commonly assigned to garrison postings, the 35th Lyran Guards and their sister regiments were postings of choice for those who wanted to work for the Commonwealth without either regional loyalties or particular ambitions. This led to the 35th and her sister regiments being manned by soldiers who were professional, but without the close-knit ties found in more parochial regiments. The LCAF was intent on generating more camaraderie and esprit de corps among the 35th and the other Guards regiments, but with little success by 2765.[1]

In 2765 the 35th Guards were stationed on Son Hoa, principally to guard the StarCorps Industries facilities present on the planet, which were either expanding or looking to expand at the time.[1]
