Omega Galaxy was raised in 3010 with BattleMechs from the final secret exchange between Clan Blood Spirit and Clan Snow Raven. Remained the smallest front-line Galaxy in Clan Blood Spirit until after the Burrock Absorption, when Omega took in units and warriors from other destroyed Galaxies like Pi, Kappa and Mu.[2]

During the Burrock Absorption, Omega garrisoned the Blood Spirit Enclave on Arcadia, where they fought Clan Star Adder's Mu Galaxy who attacked them in retaliation for the Blood Spirit's interference in the Trial. The battles there reduced Omega to less than a Cluster in strength.[2]

Omega Galaxy was black-marked by the other warriors of the Clan, for the shame of losing the Continent of Boques in their fight against Clan Star Adder with the additional loss of two full Clusters.[3]

The Galaxy arrived in Barcella in 3070 led by saKhan Boques and Loremaster Campbell to assist Clan Fire Mandrill fighting against Clan Ice Hellion, during the fighting Loremaster Campbell was killed and Star Colonel Constans Cluff was elected as a replacement.[4] The Galaxy then joined with Sigma and Zeta on Circe. Here they were engaged by Star Adder forces who inflicted heavy casualties on all three Galaxies.[5]

In 3072 the Galaxy was still actively aiding Clan Fire Mandrill in their ongoing feud with Clan Ice Hellion.[6] The Scarlet Guards were almost wiped out in the fighting on Paxon in December 3072.[7] In 3073 the remnant of the Galaxy commanded by saKhan Constans Cluff moved to Arcadia to rendezvous with Omicron Galaxy. When they made planetfall they found it dead world.[8] The Galaxy then move to Tokasha in mid-3074 joining with Omicron and Zeta Galaxies in an attempt to take control of the entire planet.[9]

Their plans on Tokasha were halted by the arrival of ilKhan Andrews and a Clan Steel Viper task force in September 3074 who declared a Trial of Possession for the entire planet. All three Spirit Galaxies were bid in defense. The Viper's Gamma Galaxy slammed into Omega an swiftly breached its lines. IlKhan Andrews called out Khan Boques in a Circle of Equals and won ending the fighting on Tokasha. The captured Blood Spirit warriors were offered life as a Viper Laborer or death, most chose death.[1]
