Assimilator

Sabatoge / Late Game

Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of Commanders more then the thought of being assimilated. The Assimilator lacks conventional weapons of its own, but it does not need them. All that is required is a nearby enemy target and it can assimilate its weapons array into its own systems. With every Assimilation, the Assimilator becomes more powerful. It's replicator armies can wreak havoc on enemy systems and its ability to assimilate entire armies make it one of the most formidable enemies to both Ship and Base Commander alike. While weak in the early game, if allowed to build up its strength, the Assimilator can become one of the most dangerous foes in the known galaxy.
