I like these a lot, but isn't the strory little too dark and simplistic? I mean how am I about to relate to something that basically amounts for horrid Space Nazis that are hunting down last remnants of species they had just performed genocide upon? Theres really nothing for me there. Crying or Very sad

Everyone needs bad guys - these guys are pretty straight forward Darwinists. Very Happy

Actually, I think its more tragic than evil. I'm not responsible for the fluff on these, I leave that up to Aaron and Pete, so I am looking at this a bit from the outside, same as you. Granted, I have access to a little more of the backstory.

This is a hive race. They are stranded and have been for a 1000 years. Instead of dealing with the situation, trying to find a way to make the best of where they have found themselves, they have clung to the old ways and the desperate hope that one day in the far future they can repair their ship and go home. Because of the drones short lifespans countless generations will work and die so that some future generation can escape.

All that Master Race stuff is bunk when stuck in the ass end of space and seems purely a defense mechanism at this point. Maybe during the original war they behaved that way, but how much of that is the real history? How much of that is what they tell themselves to give some hope that they can overcome their disaster? Its been a long time, alone, without communication and a mindset that grabs at any myth and legend for validation.

Now, maybe it all is actually true, but that doesn't help our castaways.
