Since their fist arrival in Union space, there
has been much debate as to whether or not the Legion are
even sentient. They are called the Legion because they
act, and appear to even think, as one giant
entity. Like locusts, they travel in huge,
nebulous swarms, consuming every available resource that
crosses their path.
Their origin is unknown, but what is known is
that the Legion do not pilot their space craft. They
are their space craft. Some have hypothesized them to be mindless, wandering
automatons. Others believe this to be incorrect, because
there seems to be some organized motive to all their
destructive madness. For when the Legion speak, they
make reference to only one thing: the inevitable arrival of
someone—or something—that they call "The Epoch Star."
