The Onyx Hive is a major faction in Crusade.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Onyx Hive is a race of sentient worm-like beings, whose civilization developed around the volcanic vents of their home planet. Now almost entirely space-based, they do most of their living in asteroids, spending as little time on planetary surfaces as possible.

Incredibly skilled at living on and around asteroids, the Onyx are excellent miners. Additionally, most of their ship and starbase designs are influenced by or even incorporate the asteroids upon which they live. They are also adept at trade, which synergizes with their above average Unrecognized icon nameGC3 ShipRange Icon.png Ship Range.
