History[edit]

The Seventy-fourth Battle Cluster formed the core of Lambda Galaxy and was assigned to the Deep Periphery in 3059.[1][2]

In 3064 the Cluster attacked Graceland it had quickly taken out the Eleventh Donegal Guards, and then turned on the ComGuard 388th Division. During the fighting Archer Christifori's Archer's Avengers and sections of the 20th Arcturan Guards landed to assist in the defense of planet. The additional troops managed to push the Falcons off world. [3]

By 3067 the Cluster had been transferred to Zeta Galaxy and was stationed on Lum.[4]

In January 3070 the Steel Viper's Triasch Keshik assaulted the Falcon holdings on Strana Mechty and after only a few hours had destroyed every last Falcon warrior. The Clan council rulled that the holding was still Jade Falcon territory and a Star from the Seventy-fourth was sent to garrison it.[5]

By February 3070 the Vipers were assault Lum, after a short naval battle they landed their ground forces quickly destroying the bulk of the Seventy-fourth. Only the Star stationed on Strana Mechty survived from the Cluster.[6]

In 3059 the Commanding Officer was Star Colonel Amado Roshak, and he was still the commander in 3064. By 3067 Matlan Bowes had taken command.[4]
