Delta Garrison Galaxy used to be the main defense force of Lum.[1] After the heavy losses taken before and during the Wars of Reaving, the survivors of Kappa Galaxy was merged into Delta. Nowadays the Galaxy continues to guard the main holdings of the Clan.[2]


History[edit]

Long the main defenders of the Raven homeworld of Lum, Delta Garrison Galaxy's units were scattered across the world to protect various critical facilities. In addition the unit was assigned the use of two Naval Stars of ten WarShips to defend the world's jump points. Prior to the Wars of Reaving, Delta's most noticeable action came in 3057 when the Jade Falcon's 4th Striker Cluster landed on the world via safcon and carried out a Trial of Possession for the J7 Armor Fabrication plant. The Falcons won the Trial, but ransomed the facility back to the Ravens in exchange for a month's production.[1]

In 3065 Lum was assaulted by Clan Steel Viper forces. The Vipers forced their way on-world, disrupting operations for weeks. Delta Galaxy took the brunt of the Viper's assault. Rebuilding the units in Delta took nearly a year.[3]

Dark Age[edit]

Two of Delta's Clusters, the Sixth Raven Regulars and Fifth Raven Auxiliaries, invaded Diboll and Haynesville in 3144. The local militia didn't put up much of a fight, but after the Sixth found its secure water supply poisoned, both Clusters were withdrawn from the worlds and sent to garrison the Raven Alliance/Draconis Combine border. This put the entirety of Delta Garrison Galaxy on the Combine border.[4]

Officers[edit]

As of 3061 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Morgan Sukhanov.[1] He was still in command in 3067.[5]

In 3145 Delta Galaxy was commanded by Galaxy Commander Darnell Howe.[6]
