and empires as they have encountered them. They are strong and
independent but not necessarily aggressive, responding rapidly
and violently to aggression but respecting strength, structure,
and honour in the long run. They have a tenuous peace with the
Core Commonwealth and historic tension with the
Federation. They have had numerous historical conflicts and a
prolonged war against the
Makkuth and maintain strong trade with
the independent human colony of Stewart. In general, war is too
expensive and impractical to maintain for long so they tend to
defend their territory but not pursue grudges.
Trade & Technology
Kharkos are innovative and aggressive, developing and
manufacturing unique cutting edge technologies. They also buy
technologies and equipment from corporations from the
Void. There is often corporate espionage between the
Bjaki Federation, and
Kharko worlds is extensive and well-developed. Trade with
empires from outside their own territory is halting, though
fairly strong with non-political entities, like
Advanced Construction, that bring high quality goods. The
Kharkos also trade with
Stewart and the conveniently located
