Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

Alpha Galaxy has been used in nearly every Goliath Scorpion planetary assault. The unit is traditionally assigned honor guard duty to protect Moreau's Dagger, a rock formation sacred to the Scorpions.

After the Great Refusal Alpha Galaxy was able to secure Huntress' Abysmal Continent for the Scorpions. In addition, the Eighth Dragoons were able to capture a small holding around Moreau's Dagger from Clan Ice Hellion.[1]

In November 3074 Khan Suvarov took at least one Cluster from Alpha Galaxy, the Twenty-fourth Cuirassiers, to Shadow on a mission to meet Clan Fire Mandrill; however a full naval star from Clan Coyote prevented their landing on the planet and the Khan moved her force on to Dagda. [2] Here they found the planet in decline, its ecosystem had become unstable. The few Mandrill survivors still on the planet were rescued and absorbed into the Clan after a brief Trial of Possession which saw Khan Suvarov knocked out Star Colonel Hampton Schroeder in a boxing match.[3]

As part of the multi-Clan force Alpha Galaxy dropped onto New Kent in mid December 3075 as part of the Steel Viper Annihilation. Alpha secured its main objective of the Shandrake Massif research facility by the end of day two. Fighting continued for a least a further week before orbital bombardment reduced the last Viper strong point to dust. [4]


From 3052 to 3079 the commanding officer was Khan Ariel Suvorov.[5][6][7]


Alpha Galaxy is trained in combined arms tactics. It operates by using the four Clusters in various combinations to destroy enemy forces.
