Beta Star (Clan Snow Raven)

Beta Star
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Parent Formation Lum Garrison Fleet
Formed ca. 3060


During Operation REVIVAL two Stars of WarShips from Clan Snow Raven were loaned to Clan Jade Falcon. Those two Stars were returned to the Snow Ravens in or around 3061, including at least one WarShip assigned to the Lum Garrison Fleet, the Aegis-class heavy cruiser CSR Morning Violence. With the Lum Garrison Fleet operating at a size of ten WarShips, the Fleet was reorganised into two Stars, Alpha and Beta Stars. The two Stars continued to be responsible for defending the Snow Raven homeworld, operating in two-WarShip units scattered throughout the Lum system, with various missions and roles assigned to each sub-unit.[1]

On the 8th of September 3065 Clan Steel Viper launched an attack on the Lum system; the defenses in the system had been weakened by the redeployment of the Snow Raven Alpha Galaxy and the Steel Vipers were able to punch through the defending naval forces and land on Lum, although a blockade was soon put in place and the Vipers were dislodged after five weeks of combat. While the role played by the Lum Garrison Fleet in this series of battles is unclear,[2] Delta Galaxy, of which the Lum Garrison Fleet was a part, took the brunt of the assault - along with the Fleet Command Star and spent almost a year rebuilding.[3]


As of 3061 the Commanding Officer was Star Admiral Asif Cole.[1] who continued to command Beta Star until at least 3067.[4]

Composition History[edit]

Lum Garrison Fleet Beta (Elite/Fanatical)[4] The composition of the Lum Garrison Fleet was unchanged in 3067.[6]
