A remnant of the autonomous AI fleets developed by the TriTachyon Corporation. Illegal under Domain (and Hegemony) law, and an abomination to the Church of Galactic Redemption, the First AI War saw these creations purged from the Sector. At least that is how the official histories tell it.
This is a fully armed and operational autonomous AI battlestation. Stations such as this acted as fuel and supply depot, robotic factory, command nexus, and weapon platform in support of AI fleets operating on a strategic level. The ""Declaration of Victory"" speech given by the High Hegemon following the First AI War stated that all AI battlestations had been destroyed.
The Remnant Battlestation is a very large Remnant combatant that uses the new multi-part combat station mechanics. Its large central core is invulnerable, but its numerous small modules are destructible and the station itself will die when all modules are destroyed.
The Remnant Battlestation can spawn as either damaged or the much more dangerous fully operational variant.
Remnant fleets will spawn from Remnant stations in the campaign.
The lack of any shielding whatsoever and numerous unused module hardpoints make this station much less durable than otherwise. It is still capable of putting out notable damage although not enough to seriously threaten most capital ships or some heavy cruisers. Quite susceptible to massed torpedo strikes.
The amount of firepower and very brutal PD coverage necessitate a significant force expenditure. Do not attempt with insufficient forces as they can easily find themselves too far within the extended range of it's capital-scale firepower to possibly escape.
These are used at the far corners of the station as primary heavy weapons platforms. They neither have their own shield nor are covered by any other shield modules, leading to a vulnerability to HE damage. The mixed weapons package is effective against both armor and shields at extended range.
