Okay we know that apparently the Dracs have been getting hit by Reavers so they are retaliating. We (The forsaken) have encountered the Reavers first, so we had a good chance of examining and replicating reaver tech (Reaver Scout engine in FM) and distributing it among our ranks. Later on some captains were given designs for a 'reaver' ship the Hellstrike. A ship we have never seen used by the Reavers. So what do some of the new lucky hellstrike captains do? Attack drac bases. It seems like a thresher was used as a base with added Strike cruiser components and new reaver tech (Some of which we have had a chance to use) is what the hellstrike is.
So my theory? Brennus created the new hellstrike ship so it would appear reavers are attacking the Drac Bases in order to provoke them into engaging the Reaver threat. Am I crazy? Maybe. But does it sound like something a scientist like Brennus can do is the question.
Don't use Level. Use Tech when describing players. Level means nothing, its all about tech.
