HistoryEdit

The Thirty-third Phalanx were stationed on New Kent in 3060. The Cluster was little more than an enlarged "police" unit. The Trinary of Elementals provided security to vital facilities in the Steel Viper capital, such as the Mercer Building.[1]

By 3067 the cluster had moved to Grant's Station.[2]

The final fate of the Cluster is not known, but they would not have survived the destruction of Nu Galaxy in 3074 or that of Clan Steel Viper in 3075.[3]
