The 218th was moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery in 2765 in response to the Periphery Uprising, but defected at some point after arriving, joining the Periphery rebels.[3] The defectors from the 218th - approximately two regiments of troops in total - joined the Magistracy of Canopus in 2766, but were destroyed in 2767.[1]
