The Brainy'aks are a minor faction that is activated by a Mega Event. They are only available through the purchase of the Mega Events DLC.
An ancient civilization that has spent the last millennia focusing on technology, Now that they have been exposed to the broader galactic community, the Brainy'ak find them self's unable to compete militaristically, and try and maintain their sovereignty though the trade of their precious technologies.
A new race called the Brainy'ak has come out of hiding. They seem to be very gifted researchers and willing to trade for these techs. However we have also noticed that their military is absolutely pathetic. Our advisers suspect that they will not stay independent in this dangerous galaxy without help.
- We must befriend this new race and make sure they are protected from their more violent neighbors. (Benevolent)
- I'm sure that they would be willing to trade some of their technologies for our protection. (Pragmatic)
- We have plenty of researchers already. I'm sure we can put their planet to good use. (Malevolent)
