this gang of pirates tried to claim the planet Alluuvia as their own, shortly after Radell Mining Corporation established their own claim. The Scourge then captured the Gray Griffins, an Alliance scout team dispatched to explore the planet. In reality, the Scourge had been employed by Imperial Mining, Limited, to guard the planet Alluuvia, after Chalmer Trillili made a deal with the Empire. These actions forced the Alliance to send out a team of soldiers to recover the Gray Griffins. The Scourge was defeated in the assault, and the planet was returned to Radell.
