Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship
- An aggressive, predatory battleship
- One of the known descendants of the Mitochondrial Rifter
Often seen in the wild, the Megathron is a formidable, predatory battleship known for its solitary ways. Unlike battleships, such as the Rokh, the Megathron is well known to seek its own company despite highly developed, observed social behaviors.
Found on the very edges of the Gallente Federation’s Connection the to Minmatar Federation, the Megathron was slow to adapt to captivity. A voracious hunter of great appetite and power it is rarely houses in social, fleet hangars.
Points of Interest
The Megathron is one of the true, focused brawling battleships. A fierce hunter, this spaceship tends to roar into the hunt. Often, its sheer presence holds its prey spellbound as it sprints across the distance to tackle its prey.
Megathrons are often seen displaying themselves in loud, vicious one on one combat. These exhibitions of combat appear to be loosely connected to mating rituals. However, it is to note that they will not limit this combat to just themselves but will display and attack other ships of all sizes. While capable of social interactions, most Magathrons appear to prefer to be the only one of their species on the field at any given moment.
Once domesticated, these spaceships are fiercely loyal to pilot and fleet. They will be first into battle and the last to leave a field often to the distress of their pilot.
It is well believed that the comparative ability of the Megathron compared to other, Genus members such as the Dominix is a biological inheritance to the Rifter. Due to mitochondrial studies in the exoskeleton of the Megathron, it appears that at some point there was interbreeding between Minmatar and Gallente spaceships.
From the age of the sequences, it appears that this was far enough in its history to leave residual markings on the Megathron. These are most commonly seen in its split hull exoskeleton, abnormal agility, and fierce fighting abilities. The Megathron appears to have interbreed cleanly back to the Gallente Family showing a distinct natural exhibition of blaster platforms and a high social communication with drone colonies. Also, it lacks the distinct, rough edged camouflage of the Minmatar family, sporting a more organic, greenness.
