The Evil Empire
This is a race of humanoid creatures that have evolved along the normal evolutionary probability lines. They started as very simple creatures that existed in peace. Eventually, as they evolved they grew more complex and technologically minded. Along with this great technology this race has also developed one great burning desire, and that desire is to rule the Echo Cluster with an iron fist.
During their evolution the Evil Empire had some of the most amazing scientific advancements of all of the races. This race is the consummate fighter carrier race. Their pilots are trained from a very early age to fight and fly. The Evil Empire developed the largest fighter carrier in the game. This carrier is called the Gorbie Class Battlecarrier.
The Evil Empire is a very militant race. The government is run solely by the military. Although the military has had great advances in science and technology the social development of these people has been greatly retarded. People are not encouraged to think for themselves. There are no artists or art. All children and able bodied citizens are required to train for the military or as colonists for newly conquered or discovered worlds. Any individualism is crushed immediately.
Although this way of life seems very appalling and horrible, the people of the Evil Empire seem not to mind. They take pleasure in the power and strength of their military and the fear that it generates among the other races They are all proud to join the military and try to advance through the ranks to become a leader in their government.
There have been some unusual people that have developed in the Evil Empire society. These individuals are people who have developed or exhibited psionic mind ability. This is an extremely powerful ability much like ESP. They have the ability to sense the thoughts of other beings at great distances.
Upon discovering these people the rulers of the Evil Empire started to cull them out of the society and train them for special duties. They were trained to use their abilities to scan deep space for the presence of other life forms. This ability became known as the DARK SENSE. These people were also trained in the command of starships so that the captain of any Evil Empire starship would possess this ability to better facilitate the Evil Empire in its conquest of the Echo Cluster.
