Description / Specifications[edit]

The Angels of the Rift was the name given to a technologically advanced psionic sophont species encountered by the Last Armada as they followed the Desolate Path.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

After an extremely tentative first contact, the Angels proved to be friendly and generous and were able to assist the Armada with vital supplies and repairs. They in return received technological and astrophysical data, and knowledge of DeVoss Drive. The Last Armada had left the Angels' home system by 2180AD. Much of what is known of the Angels comes from the Zelig Journal, a document that survives from the time.

The Angels' home system is remembered within the Distant Fringe as the final time that the Last Armada gathered in one place: from that point onwards it was divided into separate Continuance Flotillas to lessen the chances of disaster. The Angels' home system also marked the point that the Last Armada changed its general course from rimward to spinward.
