    History (brief summary)
    The Legacy remains a secret. There are nearly no info available what it is other than a few rumors and a few tales you can pick up from the Talon. They speak in fear and even the mighty Zirax Empire has become increasingly nervous in the last months. The Polaris have been observed to desperately search for something.

    Design Philosophy
    In the last weeks, scouts reported to have spottet a never seen type of vessel, drifting through a remote system. Seemingly inactive...but also "menacing", as one of the pilots put it. The ships were described as "ammonite style".

    Infector-Class Corvette

    Description:
    Spy reports, retrieved from an ancient Zirax archieve indicate, the the Infector has been the Legacy's vanguard in every direct engagement in the so called 'War of Silence'.

    Acting as both warship and frontline base for the spread of the Legacy onto protectorate planets the Infectors could cut a swathe through frigates and destroyers defending a planet before dropping from orbit like a meteorite onto densely populated areas.
    Once landed, the Infectors would extend tendrils into the ground and begin spreading both viral and mutagenic compounds into the environment to modify those left injured, dying or dead from the impact.

    The Infector, or "Nautilus" consists of a segmented circular shell of significant strength and thickness that protects the equally rigid mechanics of the interior. The shell's thickness is possibly required for the entity to survive the impact from orbit which many still failed to do after being damaged by defending ships.

    While the body of the entity possesses no defensive armaments, a pair of defense rings float an exact distance from the eye of the nautilus' shell providing a full sphere of coverage with powerful weapon emitters.

    WARNING: Do not engage these vessels unprepared! The consequences might be devastating for you and the sector.

    Ammonite is an animal. It's a spiral-shelled Cephalopod. So it's a literal description of the ship's appearance, not what it's made of.

    I lose being picky about this.
    But they cannot have names like "Nautilus" or "ammonite" since it is a reference of the earth.
    Unless this is a name given by terrestrial intelligence during the collection of information.


    Perdon por ser quisquilloso en esto.
    Pero no pueden tener nombres como "Nautilus" o "ammonite" ya que es una referencia de la tierra.
    A menos que esto sea un nombre dado por la inteligencia terrestre durante el acopio de la información.

    A name that Terrans gave it.
    An alien name that was loosely translated into English and Nautilus is the closest word (the alien name references a similar creature perhaps).

    Otherwise everything would have unpronounceable names like "Zree'kaeth Choolagalot". :D

    This sounds very epic. New breed with super advanced technology. Very dangerous ships with superior armor, of unknown materials with a new system of shields and very sophisticated armament. Who would be able to face it if even the Zirax fear them?.-

    Right. Thank you. Ammonoidea is what I searched today to read more about them. My mothe rlanguage is Greek and the word is Greek also. Ammos = Sand in Greek so I got confused. Ammonoidea = Sand type.
