Two Clusters from Gamma were among the five Khan Ian Hawker bid for the Battle of Tukayyid, assigned to take the secondary target city of Urcunat. Unprepared for the Com Guard Eighth Army's tactics, both clusters found their advance stalled and were reassigned to combat attacks from 31st, 56th, 85th Divisions against the Sharks supply lines. Winning the bid to destroy the raiders, the 222nd Assault Cluster quickly encountered the green 85th Division, but neither side were able to gain the advantage over the other as the fighting became increasingly brutal.[1][2][3][4]

After the 85th tied up the Shark's supply lines for an entire day, Star Colonel Seth Davis's patience ran out, breaking batchall to order the 369th Striker Cluster to assist in obliterating the infuriating Eighty-Fifth. While the 85th finally crumbled in the face of both clusters, the victory was especially costly for the Sharks with the doomed division taking the 222nd down with them and the 31st and 56th Divisions avenging the sacrifice of the 85th by tearing the 369th apart. The losses suffered by both Clusters were so extensive that the Diamond Shark Khans opted to disband both, dispersing their survivors to other Clusters, primarily Alpha Galaxy's Thirty-Ninth Striker.

To rebuild Gamma Galaxy, Angus Labov turned to more experienced warriors from Spina and Garrison Galaxies as well as reservists who had excellent skills. This resulted in a unit whose average age was higher than the norm. After being rebuilt by Angus Labov, Gamma proved itself by fighting the Jade Falcons on Tokasha.[5]

Between 3065 and 3079 Gamma Galaxy was stationed on Twycross. Though the majority of the Galaxy had been seen by observers, the Emerald Skate and the WarShip assigned to the 8th Assault Cluster weren't seen in the system. Their location was a mystery.[6]


As of 3061 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander saKhan Angus Labov.[5]


In the fighting on Tokasha against the Jade Falcons, Gamma Galaxy used the Emerald Skate to lure the Falcons out of position. The Eighth Assault Cluster then opened a gap in the Falcon's lines, and the Twenty-Eighth Cruiser Cluster then drove through the gap and struck at the Falcon's rear. This forced the Falcons to withdraw.[5]
