History[edit]

The Eighth Provisional Garrison Clusterwas the garrison on Trell I when Clan Steel Viper's Fifty-first Battle Cluster landed in April 3053 to claim the planet.[1][2]

The Eighth ambushed the Viper force in a network of caves known as the Smuggler's Maze. Despite being outgunned, the Eighth managed to stretch the fight out to four days before capitulating.[1][2]

During the Refusal War the Eighth Provisional Garrison Cluster was stationed on Butler as that was where the Falcons assumed Clan Wolf would attack. This later proved incorrect, so they were out of position.[3]

In 3059 the Eighth is deployed on Götterdämmerung and Lackhove.[4]

The unit is in 3067 part of Kappa Galaxy and garrison Goat Path.[5]

After the Jihad in 3079 the unit is deployed to Blue Hole[6] and garrison in 3085 Baker 3.[7]

During the Dark Age the Eighth is stationed on Dustball.[8]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 to 3067 the commanding officer was Star Colonel Patrick.[1][5]

In 3085 the commanding officer is Star Colonel Deborah.[7]
