Omega Galaxy was formed from the best warriors of the Umayyad and Castilian militaries.


One of the first acts undertaken by the Scorpions after their conquest was the integration of the former Umayyad and Castilian forces into the Imperio Militar del Escorpión. Trials were held for willing warriors to earn a place within three new Clusters that were being formed for the newly created Omega Galaxy. The response from former troops was poor with barely two Clusters' worth of freeborn warriors. The Khans were forced to add solahma warriors as "advisors" to bulk the force out and give it some military order.[1]

In the next few decades, the high quality of freeborn warriors available in the Escorpión Imperio increased the number of troops available to Omega Galaxy. The constant defense against and retaliatory raids against pirates also honed their skills. By 3140, Omega Galaxy had six Clusters of highly skilled freeborn troops available.[2]

During the Imperio's attack on the Hanseatic League, Omega Galaxy landed on Braunschweig and engaged Regional Defense Force 6. The resulting combat included a great deal of melee combat in addition to the normal fighting. After the dust had settled, RDF6 was destroyed and Omega Galaxy had been shattered. Survivors claimed replacement BattleMechs from the on-world factory.[3]

At an unknown date prior to 3150, the Galaxy was led by Galaxy Commander Barin Myers. Due to a dispute about 'Mech blueprints, he challenged Star Captain Emmy Line to a Trial of Refusal, wanting to destroy the files. She met him in a Circle of Equals and killed him, taking his place. That made her the first freeborn of the former Hansa to lead a Galaxy.[4]

On 12 February 3151, Emmy led an element of the Galaxy to engage a band of pirates raiding Gateway. She faced the last pirate 'Mech, defeating it and capturing the pilot, which was her intent; meanwhile, her men captured the pirate DropShip, because they wanted the information the pirates and their ships might have, as they appeared to come from the Inner Sphere.[5]
