The Votagon Empire
The Votagon are a race of clones that were created by the Tekrun Empire to perfect their own self cloning technology. After the Tekruns were done with their “experiments” they basically abandoned the Votagon when they left normal space. The Votagon Empire is mostly a nomadic empire that claims about 1/4 of the Milky Way Galaxy to the east side of Sol. They have the second largest fleet of ships in the Milky Way Alliance next to the Tekrun Empire. Unlike the more Imperial races such as the Warcon, Tekrun and even Omicron Empires the Votagon do not seek to expand their space and generally coexist with the few races in their section of the galaxy such as the Crick and the Zanosians. They mostly only settle worlds that are uninhabited because their genetic makeup is capable of withstanding harsh climates without much worry. They are even capable of surviving a limited amount of time in a total vacuum.
The Votagon are a supporting member of the Milky Way Alliance but mostly conduct their own affairs. Votagon have the unique capability to download their consciousness to a new body if they happen to die at any point, making their army very hard to defeat in battle because they can always come back.
The Votagon fleet contains approximately 100 spatial divisions mostly consisting of small maneuverable but heavily armed attack craft. In the war of 2155 a blitzkrieg from General Theroine Raclosa left the Votagon Empire in ruins and destroyed half their fleet. With the help of the alliance they Votagon were able to recover quickly.
