Madame Liberté

The name says it all! What started as an engineering feat to show French relations with the Federated States of America soon took a militaristic turn when the world war erupted. With relations between France and the FSA strained the statue was suddenly re-envisioned as a weapon of war, the torch and tablet (tabula ansata) no longer evoking the law, rather the torch became a devastating heat lance and the tablet a missile battery capable of raining down destruction on all enemies. The Battle Statue, as she is now known within the French...

With some of the largest vessels ever to appear in the Firestorm Galaxy at their disposal, this race appears to harbour a dark secret… The Kedorians have been part of the Zenian League from its inception, and can be found throughout Zenian space, though they are most commonly encountered in the heart of the Dindrenzi Federation close to their home in the Devonian systems.

Svarog

Svarog Class Battle Robot When looking for words to describe the Svarog the process simply boils down to one all-encompassing choice – BRUTAL!
