History[edit]

The Eighty-first Strike Cluster was the heaviest Cluster deployed by Zeta Galaxy.[1] In 3061 it was stationed on Delios,[2] but by 3067 it had moved to Londerholm.[3]

The Cluster survived the Society revolt[4][5], indicating that the warriors remaining in 3075 either did not join with the revolt or could not positively be identified as collaborating and had won a Trial of Refusal to retain their position.[6]

The Eighty-first was part of the multi-Clan force that landed on Circe in October 3075 as part of the Trial of Annihilation against Clan Steel Viper. The Cluster along with the Golden Keshik blunted a Viper counter=attack and pinned the Vipers in place long enough for forces of Clan Stone Lion to attack and push the Vipers back. Eventually the defenders were destroyed after being hunted through the ruins of Dehra Dun.[7]

Officers[edit]

In 3061 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Wendy Drewsivitch.[1] By 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Richard Markopolous.[3] In 3085 Star Colonel Frank Koga was in command.[5]

Tactics[edit]

The Cluster would attempt to divide the enemy forces.
