Formed


Beta Galaxy lost much of its strength in Harvest Trials against Clan Jade Falcon.[1] It spent the 3060s rebuilding to become the main frontline Galaxy in the Homeworlds.[2] During the Jihad it was tasked with the second retribution campaign in 3069 against the Draconis Combine.[3]


History[edit]

Clan Invasion Era[edit]

Beta Galaxy lost the 11th Raven Battle and 6th Raven Stoop Clusters to Clan Jade Falcon in the Harvest Trials.[1]

The Dark Age[edit]

In 3144 the Raven Alliance attacked and conquered Sterlington and Kirbyville using Beta Galaxy. Sterlington was defended by the Third Periphery Guard at the time; the Ninth Raven Wing Cluster made very effective use of their Hippogriff ProtoMechs as shock weapons, and in at least one notable instance the Ninth managed to rout a dug-in contingent of the Third Periphery Guard by deploying Elementals and Afreets on the ground before dropping Hippogriffs onto the Third from a high altitude to sweep down. The sudden appearance of the ProtoMechs caused panic and disarray amidst the ranks of the Third, who promptly ran into the arms of a second wave of Raven forces.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Galaxy Commander Reagan McCorkell.[1]

As of 3145 the Commanding Officer was Galaxy Commander Grady Magnus.[5]
