It is out noble call to hold back the dark plague of hostile aliens that invade our boarders and spread crime, death, and disorder to our member worlds. Only our fleet can be the arsenal of freedom that can stop the Cyborg menace. We strike from the darkness and leave as silently as we came. Unseen and very deadly. Our enemies fear us. We are the invisible warriors.


Sneaky types with the best cloakers around. Did someone say Romulans? Especially good versus Borg.

How to play:
Place photon torpedoes on your high attack bonus ships. Use the very fast Deth Specula to disrupt enemy freighter runs. Take advantage of your strong ground combat power to capture lightly guarded enemy bases. Be careful not to destroy your own fighter craft with the Nemesis Torpedo super weapon. Your scanners are weak on most ships so be sure to build Skyfire class ships to be your eyes. Have Skyfires travel ahead of your cloaked ships. Use the Darkwings with world crusher missiles to get close to unshielded enemy bases while under cloak. Fire the world crusher missiles and return to cloak and move to a new location. Board enemy ships from cloaked ships. If the enemy is grouping to attack your fleet scatter your ships and take out many of their bases at once. If the enemy is spreading out to defend his planets group your ships into strong fleets and take out his spread out ships a few at a time. Try to make friends with other races, they would most likely want to trade ship plans or want you to help them fight the Cyborg. One of the most powerful attacks you can use on an enemy ship is a boarding action from a Deth Specula using all Birdmen High Guard Rangers. Your boarding High Guard will be able to kill 2 to 50 enemy crew and guests each and get away back to your cloaked ship if they fail to take the enemy ship. Packs of Deth Speculas can do a lot of harm to an enemy ship's crew.
