The Concord are the largest and most powerful Panhuman civilisation of the Seventh Age – having colonised almost a quarter of all the known human worlds in Antarean space.
The military arm of the Concord is organised and directed by a branch called the C3 (or Concord Combined Command) and they responds to threats with logical ruthlessness – dispatching heavily armed forces throughout Antarean space.
Concord NuHu Mandarin
The ruling elites of this society are New Humans or NuHu. Hyper-intelligent, tall, and eerily androgynous, the NuHu are the undisputed Mandarins of the Panhuman Concord. They are very few in number and spread thinly amongst the vast population of the Concord.
What makes the NuHu different from other humans is that they have co-evolved with the sentient integrated machine intelligence – or IMTel – that controls all aspects of Concord society. They are its living symbiotic component, simultaneously masters and slaves of an all powerful, benign technocracy.
All worlds of the Concord are encased in a nanosphere – a cloud of nanorobotic machines that acts as a universal medium of communication and micro-energy transference. By this means worlds and ultimately the whole concord is run and directed by the data-driven machine-minds of the IMTel and its NuHu Mandarin elite.
Concord C3 Support team with X-Launcher
An X-launcher is a portable magnetic launcher that hurls explosive missiles, bombs or special munitions packages, such as Arc, Blur, Scramble, and Scoot. They are bulky weapons, and their regular explosive ammunition resists full compression due to the charge. They are of limited value on the battlefield unless they can be emplaced or set up in a static position. However, they are excellent for lobbing shots onto fixed targets. The bombs themselves are usually guided either by internal sensors or by means of mobile targeting probes. The standard X ammunition contains high-concussion explosives – the X simply standing for explosive.
Concord Weapons Drones
In the Antarean universe ‘drone’ is a cover-all term for self- aware machines that are capable of intelligent decision-making. Drones have a sense of identity and personality, although some have only rudimentary or narrowly focussed characters depending on their role.
Concord Weapon Drones are usually employed to carry support or heavy weapons. They are propelled by suspensors that also lift them from the ground surface.
