History[edit]

Raised to defend the Paxon system. Founding units came from Mu and Nu Provisional Galaxy.[1]

Xi spent its entire existence guarding the planet Krakau.[1]

Paxon was hit by forces from Clan Ice Hellion and Clan Hell's Horses. Xi repelled these assaults, and worked with Clan Diamond Shark to defend several factories.[2]

Burrock Absorption and After[edit]

During the Burrock Absorption, Xi was ordered to attack a Cluster of the Burrock's Beta Galaxy that was also in system. The Burrock commander, Star Colonel Hoyt Marghar settled for a token Trial once he realized the seriousness of the charges against Clan Burrock. After losing the Trial (a golf match), the Burrock unit was incorporated into Xi.[1]

Xi's unofficial logo is a golf ball, in recognition of the Burrock absorption.[1]

Officers[edit]

As of 3059 the commanding officer was Galaxy Commander Malachi Reisch.[1]

In 3067 the commanding officer is Galaxy Commander Zachariah Truscott.[3]
