The Ancient Imperium Faction specializes in research and development. Using Technology and Science they are able to equip their Ship Commanders with increased weapons, resistance, and utility upgrades. With patience and persistance the Imperium is willing to wait for their enemies to weaken while they slowly gain strength. Once they have gained sufficient strength, they can even summon a Psionic Warship of incredible power. Players playing on the Imperium should focus on building strength slowly for the late game. Faction abilities are very expensive.
