|The other factions have decided to
reassemble the creation device. If the device were successfully
assembled our race would become the ultimate power in the universe.
There is also an equal chance that the device would bring and end to
all life. Our faction is the lone dissenter. We feel the risk of
annihilating all life is simply too great. It remains to be seen if we
can do anything to stop the other factions. We have procured a powerful
ship, the Astromidus, for you to command. The Astromidus is an advanced
prototype and is vastly superior to any ship the other factions can
deploy. The ship is faster, has a tougher hull and a much more powerful
weapon than the ships of the other factions. The only advantage the
other factions have is superior numbers.
