History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

The Twenty-second Arcturan Guards was founded between the repeal of the Star League Council Edict of 2650 in 2755 and 2765, and was still too new in 2765 to have earned a nickname or establish any formal traditions. Like the other regiments of the Arcturan Guard, the Twenty-second struggled with boredom and ennui during the closing years of the Star League era; the Star League Defense Force acted as an effective deterrent in the main, making large-scale military deployments for the Twenty-second a rarity, and leaving the regiment to occupy itself with training exercises and garrison duty. Despite this the Twenty-second was still an enthusiastic unit.[1]
