Salutations, Captains. Dr. Brennus here with an exciting missive regarding the latest in Forsaken technology.
As you know, since the Draconian Uranium Bases began appearing on our waters, our ancient enemy has been constructing something sinister at the core of these structures. Though a mystery at first, as time passed, we saw the fruits of their labours in the form of massive Mega Ships. When these Mega Ships began their assault on Forsaken territory, we were ill-prepared to face such overwhelming technology. Our losses were great.
However, with the help of our once great but now former ally, Zoe Vasquez, we were able to construct the correct weaponry to face this threat head on. When we pushed our enemy beyond our borders once more, we cherished our victories and believed ourselves capable of defending against such terrors at any time in the future.
As you know, such assurances are never guaranteed.
Recent events have shown that our former ally has used her foolish crusade to co-opt the Draconian technology to her own ends! Zoe's Legion gains ground each day with the help of her own powerful Mega Ship. Once more, our survival is threatened by this.
But fear not, Captains! At Commander Harlock's bequest, our scientists have been working relentlessly, using what stolen salvage and data gathered by our spies to reverse engineer this Mega Ship technology. No longer will we be unprepared for this conflict. Now, once again, the Forsaken can take their rightful place in the world.
Behold! I give you... the Forsaken Mega Ship!
The Hyperion is the most powerful ship in the world to date. It begins with the construction of the Gantry: a special building that can be built outside your base that will eventually house your Mega Ship.
Once built, the Hyperion will appear outside your base. From here, you can begin configuring your Mega Ship with a variety of modules.
There will be multiple slots on a Mega Ship on which you can build, refit, swap, and rotate modules.
Captains will start with an engine, bridge, and weapon module.
Weapon modules always come with a mega weapon permanently attached.
The first types of mega weapons available will be mortars and cannons, but more will soon follow.
There will also be special slots that boost your Mega Weapon.
Eventually you’ll have the ability to level up the modules and mega weapons. Pictured is the Hyperion with upgraded Mega Cannons and Mega Mortars.
As the Mega technology develops, we will share more information, including:
New types of modules
Future game-play such as “hiving” with other Alliance Mega Ships.
