The Star Scorpions had the dual misfortune of producing redundant gene-seed and being utterly devastated by warp entities when the Chapter's Fleet became trapped in warp space. The exact fate of the Scorpions is unknown.
The redundant gene-seed hampered Imperial efforts to rebuild the Scorpions chapter and eventually the bio-engineers and chem-architects of the Adeptus Mechanicus were forced to concede defeat. For a time it seemed that the number 888 would never be raised again, but some years later, a new Founding in the offing persuaded the Priesthood to revisit the chapter regalia, resulting in the creation of the Mentor Legion chapter. The Mentors received the uniforms and number of the extinct chapter but instead of the redundant seed, they were given an entirely new generation of genetic material collated from the storage banks of the Terran laboratories.
