Description[edit | edit source]
The Slyne are an advanced organic race, composed of gelatinous blobs who have enhanced themselves with a variety of cybernetic implants.

The Slyne possess cybernetic limbs which can be swapped out as needed to suit whatever tasks the Slyne is asked to perform, making them naturally skilled shipbuilders. Additionally, their gelatinous nature makes them very difficult to kill, particularly when they invade an enemy planet.

They are unparalleled at construction and engineering, often building things which require almost no maintenance and start the game with a Constructor. The Slyne are particularly efficient at transporting materials from asteroid mines and to shipyards.
