Nasty, warlike and irrational race of neo-cromagon humanoids from Sector J. Centuries ago the Bracken successfully conquered every planet near them and settled into a tradition based on match combat. They were surprised to discover their first Earth ship and even more surprised when this new race didn't bow down to them immediately. Fortunately it took them a while to re-build their war machine allowing the Earth Confederation to meet and restrain their every advance.

|PLEXUS TRADE UNION
Like any Union its surprisingly easy to get involved with this group, but disturbingly difficult to extract yourself after reality sets in. The Plexus believe the solution to inter-galactic war is to ensure all persons have a chip in their heads which synchronize their thoughts and cause them to speak and act as one. As a species which rather enjoys individuality we're against that.
BOLDER ON THE PLEXUS TRADE UNION
A proto-energy being who fancies himself an Interior Decorator. There isn't much you can do to avoid him/it but when you hear the name, or return to your domicile and see the Cian coloured curtains, at least you'll understand what happened.
BOLDER ON YAREK
An idyllic world of peaceful people who are blessed with a heliotropic effect that blots out negative and violent thoughts. However unless your plans for the future involve never leaving while growing old on a diet of vegetables and aroma-therapy you shouldn't visit because you'll forget all about what you left behind in this veritable Garden of Eden.
BOLDER ON PLACENTIA
Queen of the Bryozoan species of Humanoids who as recently as One Million years ago were a marine based lifeform. Modern Bryozoans are a sessile semi-aquatic species who have a symbiotic existence with colonies of small polyps that each have curved or circular ridge bearing tentacles. In order to reproduce female Bryozoans will secrete a gummy adhesive that physically locks them and their intended mate into place from conception to birth. We mention this because Bryozoan scientists believe Terran reproductive fluids are genetically compatible, while the females, specifically Vestibula herself, have a deluded believe that such interspecies breeding physically rejuvenates them. There is, as yet, no evidence to support either claim.
BOLDER ON VESTIBULA
A species of Humanoid looking Androids, meticulously built at the sub-atomic level to replicate organic life. Their main advantage is that they have the ability to endure greater extremes in climate than Terrans, and can even survive exposure to lethal doses of radiation, but their rejuvenative abilities are next to nil and their life spans max out at 25 years. We do not know where they came from, or what their goal is, but occassionally they charge at us like well trained dogs. Space Marines are undergoing additional training just to prevent further assaults.
