So here we are, the perfect place to share our thoughts, gut feelings and paranoid delusions about everything happening in the system. Before you post, be advised that this is NOT an Op specialized cast, so don't share too much. I'll start by asking: The factors what's their deal? What do we know about them? 1.They're basically gigantic amoeba 2.They don't like AIs or the Pandora gates 3.They claim to represent a collective of Singularity-surviving species 4. They come around the system several times a year to collect info or trade. Number four is the most worrying, while their ship are ridiculously fast compared to ours, their frequency of visit leaves only a few possibilities; That they have an outpost in the system we haven't detected, they have their own Pandora gate (possibly they want to maintain a monopoly on them?) or they currently have some other form of faster-than-light travel that we are not aware of. All of these options are quite frightening if the Factors are not quite what they present themselves to be... What do you think darkcasters?
