While the TEC, Advent and Vasari are embroiled in their own struggles for survival a new threat has emerged, intent on spreading it's infectious plague throughout the universe. The sickening ruthlessness in which entire populations are infected or destroyed is alarming to the TEC, Advent and Vasari alike. If the Plague wasn't enough they were immediately followed yet another race calling themselves the Nephilim. The initial encounter with the "Nephilim" held promise they would unite in defeating the Plague. However, Initial attempts at diplomacy have failed as the Nephilim seem single purposed in their pursuit of the Plague.

Hypercorp Destroyer Scene

In the aftermath of the Fall, transhumanity lives on, divided into a patchwork of hypercorps, survivalists, and transhuman factions or species. Under the oppressive police states of immortal inner-system oligarchies, advanced technologies remain highly restricted, and refugee infomorphs are held in virtual slavery or resleeved in robotic bodies and forced into indentured labor. In the outer system, rebel transhuman scientists and techno-anarchists struggle to maintain a new society—from each according to their imagination and to each according to their need. And on the fringes and in the niches lurk networked tribes of political extremists, religious fanatics, criminal entrepeneurs, and bizarre posthumans, among other, stranger, and more alien things ...

Hypercorps were behind the initial push into space and were able to survive much of the Fall when the Titans began trying to exterminate all life. Having survived the fall Hypercorps were able to maintain much of the previous advancements in biotechnology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science making them a powerful presence.

While Hypercorps aren't necessarly interested in directly running governments they are focused on lucrative contracts with local populaces providing all types of technological improvements such as Bio-Morphs or Synth-Shells and Nano-technology. Hypercorps while remaining independant will also contract with local populations providing the military and space exploration capabilities utilizing nano-based weapons, military morphs and psionically improved transhumans. An expanding Hypercorp will even be known to attack nearby planets if it threatens their business or may provide a lucrative increase in profits.

Local populaces are more than willing to jump in bed with these Hypercorps to gain access to biotechnology allowing people to genefix, enhance, and clone their bodies, while others pursue body modifications to adapt to new environments or make themselves into something no longer quite human. Just make sure you pay on time or you may find your new morph being recalled...

To be honest, I don't really know or care much. They may have been modeled based on that by SolCommand.

Many of these ships look like they were modeled after Narn ships from Babylon 5. Were they by any chance?
