History[edit]

Clan Goliath Scorpion[edit]

The Mu Galaxy was the garrison unit for Marshall. The unit had a reputation as a home for troublemakers, but the Galaxy often defeated forces from Clan Ice Hellion who raided the Goliath Scorpion enclaves. Mu had less success against Clan Jade Falcon however, which left them eager to prove themselves.[1]

In 3071 Mu Galaxy landed on Grant's Station near the city of New Thebes and took up positions surrounding it. Alpha Galaxy of Clan Steel Viper had been engaging Clan Wolf forces for possession of the city and when Mu arrived launched an attack against their lines. The fresh warriors from Mu Galaxy easily repulsed the Viper attack and forced them to retreat. Galaxy Commander Allison Baba then challenged the Wolf commander, Star Colonel Derin Wolf to single combat for the city. Derin was defeated and the Scorpions claimed their prize.[2]

In April 3074 the Galaxy's WarShip the Karttikeya was redeployed as an escort vessel for Beta Galaxy.[3]

When Clan Goliath Scorpion was Abjured in 3079 the Galaxy was summoned to Roche by the Khan. From there it moved along with the rest of the Clan to Waypoint 531 before continuing on to Nueva Castile in early 3080. [4]

Escorpión Imperio[edit]

During the Hanseatic Crusade of 3140 Mu Galaxy joined the Escorpión Imperio's invasion force in Wave 3. Mu's warriors easily annihilated the militia and mercenaries on Tomalov while its aerospace units destroyed Convoy Defense Force 2, but their lack of experience in pacification led to overly brutal reprisals against native resistance, fueling more violence.[5] [6]

Assigned to Dortmund in Wave 4, Mu Galaxy was initially stalemated by the tenacious defense of Regional Defense Force 3 before permitting that unit to depart for Bremen. Although this left Mu in possession of their target, the multitude of traps and mines left by the withdrawing enemy kept that Galaxy preoccupied on Dortmund while the culminating battle of the campaign was fought on Bremen.[5]

Tactics[edit]

The Galaxy is skilled at finding its way through defensive lines without announcing itself. The warriors of the Galaxy often slip past enemy sentries and leave a token to show they've been there.[1]

By 3140 Mu Galaxy had become noted for its specialties in reconnaissance and camouflage.[9]
