Short Name: ANT

Moniker(s): Antigone, The Republic

Race Description

Faction Description

The Antigone Republic is made up of representatives of several sectors that were cut off from the Argon Federation during the Gate Shutdown. The fledgling republic was named after the system in which it resides, the system itself paying tribute to the Argon station whose loss is recorded in history as one of the greatest horrors of the Xenon wars. While the Antigone Republic is a distinct entity detached from the Argon Federation, and they are wary of returning back into the Federation, they maintain close ties, and cooperate on many levels. Sandwell, for example, is a planet of the Antigone Memorial system, which hosts the Argon Federation's biggest data archive. The Antigone Republic and the Argon Federation frequently conduct joint military operations to beat back xenon invasions and they trade freely and often.

A list of all sectors the Antigone Republic Start with when a new game is created. All Antigone Republic sectors are located on the lower-left side of the map, sandwiched between the Holy Order of the Pontifex, Xenon and Argon Federation. With the addition of the Cradle of Humanity DLC the Antigone republic also borders the Segaris Pioneers and Sol is connected to the initially unclaimed Getsu Fune which adjoins Antigone space.
