Areas of note Edit
- The Breach
Recently, beings known only as Skurge - sentient embodiments of the Strain - have taken control of Eldan technology that's allowed them to break free from their centuries-old confinement, threatening every living being on Nexus. Using powerful Eldan plasma cannons, they shattered a portion of the ancient wall surrounding the Grimvault to create a massive gap known as the Breach.
It is through the Breach that the Strain have spilled out into the surrounding area known as the Fractured Fields, spreading corruption to every life form they touch.
- Cryo Pod Integrity in Grimvault
As the tried and tested technology of cryo pods is ancient even by galactic standards, most models are based on the same systems that have been in use for years. The integral seals on cryo pods, therefore, are similarly tested and have long been considered so reliable that they could also be used as ship's escape pods (if equipped with basic heat-shielding) and instant quarantine units for victims of infectious diseases.
Therefore, ever since corruption and the Strain were discovered on Nexus, one standard method of containment has been quickly placing anyone showing the first signs of symptoms into cryostasis. In the case of Strain corruption, this is almost certainly a mistake. No infection vector like bio-phage and techno-phage has ever been seen in the galaxy before.
Corruption can literally eat through the seals on any model of cryo pod, from the venerable Mark IIIs to the sturdy Exile-built Jenner-types.
- The Fist of Azrion
A military transport vessel assigned blockade duty for Operation Genesis, the Korol-class cruiser Fist of Azrion is one of the older ships of the Dominion's Nexus Fleet. In addition to providing active support to the Dominion troops and Radiant Legionnaires on the surface, Captain Sabes was under orders to recover any and all Eldan technology that could aid in the war effort against the Exiles. The ship also carried a great deal of scientific equipment overseen by DRED.
Before a mysterious superweapon inside Grimvault blasted her out of the sky, DRED had reported much promising research was underway onboard the Fist of Azrion. It now appears certain that research may have involved the Strain.
- The Widowmaker
An aging military transport vessel assigned blockade duty for Operation Prime Time, the Korol-class cruiser Widowmaker was stolen from the Dominion fleet nearly two hundred years before the discovery of Nexus and has seen much combat in the war. In addition to providing active support to the FCON mercs and Durek's Destroyers on the surface, Commander Vaxul was under orders to recover any and all Eldan technology that could aid in the war.
Before a mysterious superweapon inside Grimvault blasted her out of the sky, the Black Hoods had reported much promising research was underway onboard the Widowmaker. It now appears certain that research may have involved the Strain.
