The youngest of all the factions, the Union predominantly consists of Rashkir and Keldonians, although this roguish faction has attracted members from all over the universe. The Union was formed after the Second Great War was already well under way, when its founder, "Mad" Max Sheppard, started selling arms to both the Federation and the Empire. As the Union's numbers grew, members began organizing secret attacks on the warring factions, calculated to instigate further battles.
When the Union's devious actions were at last uncovered, all remaining members fled and went into hiding. The weakened Union survived only because of their superior technology - allowing the outlaws to exist undetected. Union researchers continued to improve upon their designs and today the Union possesses the most advanced ship equipment available anywhere.
Union members today are no longer forced to live in hiding, though a pilot flying a Union flag may not always be welcome in Federal or Imperial space. Pilots that just don't fit in elsewhere in the universe can often find a home with the Union, as this comparatively small faction is always happy to expand its numbers.
Technologically specialized in defensive and special ship equipment.
The Union currently lays claim to the Union Keldon Core and Union Rashkir Core in the eastern reaches of the universe, as well as the Union Contingent within the Pardus Cluster.
