The 701st is a unit in the Mobile Infantry of unknown size.

The 701st's primary commander was General Jack Gordon Shepard who lead the unit personally on the ground, followed by Intelligence officer and physic Lieutenant Pavlov Dill.

History Edit

During the First Bug War approximately five years after the Klendathu System Campaign, the 701st was deployed to invade an unknown Arachnid planet deep inside the Arachnid Quarantine Zone. The battle would have ended in disaster when the Arachnids deployed their new Bug, known as the Control Bug, against 701st survivors whom had retreated to Hotel Delta 1-8-5.

The Fortress Outpost was over run by the control Bugs, and General Shepard was infected. However, thanks to a couple of brave Mobile Infantry soldiers, Captain Dax, and Private Sahara the Federation was saved when they were able to kill the infected General and prevent the Control Bugs from escaping the planet. The Arachnids were going to use their new Bug against the Federation's High Command using the general. Sahara escaped on a landing boat, however, Captain Dax, knowing he would be hung upon his return home, opted to stay behind and fight off the Arachnids until killed.
