The Infestation is a scar on the universe. It seeks to infest all and to steal all creatures will. The Infestation is an incurable virus at the moment. A cure is possible, but it will take massive amounts of research, skill, intelligence, technology and resources. The Infestation hates all that is not blighted by the virus and seeks nothing but to spread their plague. The Infestation is small now, and are thought of as rumors or myths. But soon, they will come out of the dark places of space to make their mark in history.

When the virus developed, it was trapped inside an air pocket deep inside a cave-world known as Cyrus IV, in the perfect living conditions to survive. A mining colony was situated nearby. The colony mined into the air pocket and the virus infested the mining crew. From one person to an entire colony in mere weeks. With no response from other colonies because of a short blackout, the infestation took the advantage and took over the colony. Here, after many days, the Hive-Mind was created. It was built by the infested to keep The Infestation under control. It spread its grasp with other creatures to keep its will and steal the will of the other creatures it now has under its grasp.
Cyrus IV: Infested Mining colony.
116XE1: Infested Asteroid Colony.
Other Races: 10%
Infested: The Infested Make up the majority of the population. They are the backbone of the Infestation and keep prisoners and slaves.
Other Races: The Infested keep other races as slaves or prisoners. This population is any race they attack. The Infestation use these people as pretend escapees, making them carriers of the virus to spread elsewhere.
The Infestation lets some of their prisoners walk the hives and bases. They selectively choose who to infest and who not to infest. The prisoners are placed in bad living conditions, but do not get infested. At least, not right away. The Infested on the other-hand, don't seem to live any kind of lifestyle. They patrol mindlessly, attack anything that is not supposed to be in the hive and attack if they are ordered to by the Hive-Mind. They don't care how they live. They only care about infesting, attacking and eating.
The Infested have no use for many resources besides food. They may pretend like they need or use resources to look more diplomatic, but they stay hidden and refuse to use face-to-face communication in any way.
The Infestation is run by the Hive-Mind. It is on the top of its rule and has smaller (nodes) to extend its rule. Queens, Hive lords and Swarm Leaders act as these nodes of power and keep The Infestation under control and balanced.
The Infestation cannot create advanced tech and need to steal it from others. However, they have created biological tech that only they can use, and is useless to others.
Bio-FTL: A biological FTL that has a psionic ability to rip a hole in space to travel short distances around 9000-100000 km in space. Hive ships are the only ships that can use these and the ships have more than one. The travel effects stack for each Bio-FTL that is there and stacks again, for each other ship inside the shuttle dock of the ship. Infested ships do not use Bio-FTL's. They use their normal FTL's.

If it is already infested, it will not work unless the other race possesses the cure to The Infestation.
