In my continuing introduction to the races of the galaxy in Portable Galactic Empire, as presented in the Fate, Politics and Heritage expansion, I bring you the Node.
Node 126 was a semi-autonomous battle computer developed for border defense by the United Earth Protectorates. This particular unit went rogue after developing sentience. Although only conjecture, it appears that an overambitious plan to link several battle groups in a single command net may have caused the "error".
Node 126 went off station with 4 battle-groups worth of autonomous hardware. It has since evolved, but appears to be ambivalent to its former masters.
In the game the Node represents an advanced player race. The player playing this race is limited to a 3 card hand.
