Post Tukayyid[edit]

The Galaxy settled into a garrison position on the occupied worlds of Asgard and Tarazed in 3053. [1]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

Epsilon Galaxy were an early target of Operation Bulldog, the Second Star League assault on the Smoke Jaguar Occupation Zone. Both Asgard and Tarazed were attacked in Wave One destroying the Fourth Jaguar Dragoons, Seventh Jaguar Dragoons and Dark Prowlers Keshik effectively knocking out the entire Galaxy.[2] Only the Sixth Striker Cluster fought on until Wave Three defending Luzerne to the last.

Notes[edit]

  • Epsilon Galaxy is first noted in the Inner Sphere in 3053 [1] comprising of only two clusters both of which had previously belonged to other Galaxies. Therefore it is possible that Epsilon was raised after the Battle of Tukayyid to rebuild Clusters shattered during the Invasion.
  • Another possibility is that Epsilon existed before the invasion and acted as a Reserve Galaxy rotating damaged Clusters in and fresh ones out. The jaguars had bid Three Galaxies to gain their Invasion Corridor. Cluster rotation was certainly one way around such a limiting force and may also go some way to explaining the large number of Jaguar Cluster recorded fighting in Operation Revival. [5] [6] [7]
