Parent Formation Marik Militia
Formed 3057



The Thirty Fourth Marik Militia was formed in 3057.

Operation Guerrero[edit]

During Operation Guerrero, the 34th Marik Militia captured Pollux.[1] There they faced off against a militia regiment of infantry and armor.[2]

Operation Bulldog[edit]

The 34th did not participate in Operation Bulldog.


As of 3067, they were headquartered on Amity.[3] The 34th Marik Militia was part of Operation Broken Fist, the defense of the Free Worlds League against invading forces from the Lyran Commonwealth's Skye and Bolan Provinces.[4] By 3079 they had overcome their inexperience and become a stalwart defensive unit. Splitting into two smaller commands, they garrisoned the Tamarind District worlds Epsilon and Nockatunga.[5]

The relentless pace of Lyran assaults on worlds protected by the Thirty-Fourth eventually led to disaster. In mid to late 3079 the Thirty-Fourth was soundly defeated at Epsilon by the 4th Lyran Regulars and 8th Lyran Regulars,[6] suffering severe losses before they could escape to the friendly system of Promised Land.[7] The 34th would be defeated again on Nockatunga in early September 3079 by the 4th Alliance Guards and was forced to retreat to limit collateral damage.[8] Shortly thereafter, the Free Worlds League was disbanded following the final vote of the Free Worlds League Parliament in January 3079.[9] This shocking event, coupled with the unit's losses, drove morale to an all-time low. For the next five years, any rumor of a deployment to a front line sparked numerous desertions.[7]


Between 3059 and 3067 the commanding officer was Colonel William Adams.[2][3]

As of 3085 the commanding officer is Colonel Rumi Vyse[10]


The 34th is too new to have any tactical specialties.[2]
