HistoryEdit

Epsilon Galaxy was first created by Khan Tharan Kon-Dakar in 2973 as a territorial defense force following roughly fifty years of raids by Clans Coyote and Smoke Jaguar.[1]

Though it is considered a second-line unit, Epsilon Galaxy has fought in almost every engagement involving Clan Cloud Cobra in the ninety years since their formation, starting with their first engagement against Clan Jade Falcon on Gatekeeper in 2977. Much of Cloud Cobra's forces were involved in conquering the Tanite worlds, leaving only the 73rd Cobra Guards, 185th Cobra Fangs, and a few Clan Burrock reinforcements, to defend their enclave on Gatekeeper. The Jade Falcons took advantage of their weakness, and while the nascent Epsilon Galaxy performed well in action, they were forced off the planet.[1]

Ever since, near-constant raiding by other Clans has helped Epsilon Galaxy hone their skills in combat, and its units have begun receiving more and newer machines.[1]
