|Unit Profile (as of 3061)|
|Nickname||Scourge of the Pentagon|
|Parent Formation||Clan Cloud Cobra Touman|
Beta Galaxy was raised in 2859 due to Clan Cloud Cobra's expanding possessions, doubling in size from six to twelve Binaries within two decades. Overshadowed by Alpha Galaxy, Beta's accomplishments are lessened by the fact that its two most successful operations were against relatively weak opponents.
Ever since, Beta Galaxy has been rotating between the Pentagon Worlds and Tanite Worlds on five-year assignments. The unit has had little chance to win glory when performing crowd-control and anti-terrorism duties, though recently the Galaxy has been in poor shape to do so. The controversial appointment of a new Commanding Officer, along with disagreements between the Galaxy's mix of Warden and Crusader Cloisters, has resulted in near-open feuding between the Galaxy's three Clusters. For this reason many outsiders deem the Galaxy combat ineffective, incapable of fighting against even bandits.

Because of recent troubles, there is very little cohesion between Beta Galaxy's units, though they are still capable of fighting on their own.
Because of their underestimated combat capabilities, in CBT play Beta Galaxy make elect to give up Initiative after winning the role, only to seize it later. The player controlling Beta Galaxy may only "bank" two such Initiatives at any one time.
