SWN Factions: Skorpios Empire

The last of the major factions in the Ptolemy sector is the Skorpios Empire.  When settlers arrived on Skorpios, they discovered that it was dominated by a single type of organism - an alien fungus that would destroy or eventually choke out every other type of life.  High technology kept the fungus at bay, but after the Silence, desperate researchers discovered how to prevent the fungus from killing humans by adding the alien fungal DNA to the human genome.

The hybrid offspring had a tendency to be stronger, smarter, and a bit more crazy that regular humans.  The scientists decided that they had stumbled upon the secret to human perfection, and executed everyone who refused the upgrade.

Six hundred years later find the humans of Skorpios unable to naturally reproduce, requiring automated vat systems to produce new generations of crazy little supermen and women.  Scientist-Emperor Leonid Andropov, a 300 year old short, bald, macrocephalic crazy man in a white lab coat, rules the empire with an iron lab glove, intent on enslaving all other humans in the galaxy, working them to death, and replacing them with his vat born children.
