History[edit]

Formation[edit]

Zeta Galaxy was formed with the help of Clan Blood Spirit in 3066 and fielded a large amount of ProtoMechs.[1]

Clan Snow Raven[edit]

The Galaxy was lost in a Trial of Possession on Strana Mechty to the Blood Spirits in 3068.[2]

Service with Clan Blood Spirit[edit]

Zeta Galaxy retained its designation after it was taken Isorla. It was put to task straight away. Moving to York it participated in the recapture of Elemental Facility 4.[2] In 3070 the Galaxy then joined with Sigma and Omega on Circe. Here they were engaged by Clan Star Adder forces who inflicted heavy casualties on all three Galaxies.[3]

In 3073 a Trinary of Clan Hell's Horses warriors and the last remnant of Kindraa Mattila-Carrol, the 202nd Firebrand Cluster, were absorbed in to the Blood Spirits touman by Khan Troy Boques and posted to Zeta Galaxy.[4] The Galaxy move to Vinton in October 3073 here they found the former Clan Diamond Shark holding in desperate need of aid. Absorbing the defending Nova they moved the civilian to Albion.[5]

The Galaxy moved to Atreus in early 3074 under the command of saKhan Constans Cluff. Here they fought and absorbed the remains of Kindraa Faraday-Tanaga, that totaled less than two clusters worth of warriors at that time. The Galaxy then move to Tokasha in mid 3074 joining with Omicron and Omega Galaxies in an attempt to take control of the entire planet. [6]

Their plans on Tokasha were halted by the arrival of ilKhan Brett 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. Zeta was the first to fall, it had become trapped in the Koche Mountains near a battle armor complex. Using a combination of combat drops and air strikes the Adders destroyed all six Clusters of the Galaxy. [7]
