Behold...the galaxy's most "powerful" fighter craft that no one is afraid of...hmmm
About this creation
The Artronians are a race bordering on grandeur...or rather, delusions of grandeur. In truth, they are the laughing stock of the galaxy but they are woefully unaware of this fact. Think of the Artronians as "Space Lemmings" and you get the idea. In fact, it is still postulated that the Artronians did not achieve the technology for space travel by themselves and that a superior race gave them the technology as they must have felt that the galaxy and all her space-faring races needed some humour to diffuse galactic tensions.
The Artronians think that with their "mighty" armada of 23 Extreme Devastators, they rule their quadrant of the galaxy with fear and might, and inspire awe and respect in the other races. Truth be told, the other races give the Artronians a wide berth in order to keep them happy - afterall, every galaxy needs a race like the Artronians to lighten things up.
True to their penchant for hyperbolic superlatives, the Artronians have chosen to call this craft the "Extreme Devastator". More likely than not, this craft is more devastating to the user than to its enemies. Unlike most other races whose weaponry come with "stun" and "kill" settings, the Artronians have gone one step further in their one-upmanship game - their weapons have 3 settings: a) Stun, b) Stunning and c) Gorgeous....it is even rumoured that some Artronian weapons can actually be set to "kill"....hmmm.
Not wanting to be left behind in the arms race, the Extreme Devastator comes equipped with not 2 but 3 engines, although how one manages to balance an odd number of propulsion units is baffling. In fact, the Extreme Devastator, although quick in a straight line, is unable to execute anything more than rudimentary manoeuvres while at considerable speeds...rendering this craft true to the reputation of its creators - a joke.
But kindly refrain from breaking the bad news to the Artronians, and let's all attempt to keep them contented in their belief of superiority. Don't forget to bow when you see an Artronian approaching! Oh, and as a sign of respect - never, ever, stare at their large bulbous and widely spaced eyes...you've been warned!
Oh, and don't bother trying to forge an alliance with them....their incompetence is only overshadowed by their inability to prioritise tasks. Just last month, on a joint operation with the Terran Space Force against galactic pirates, the Artronian Flagship broke contact with the fleet in the heat of battle and made a jump homewards....all just to make a resupply on fresh fruit! It seems the Artronian commanders are unable to function under pressure without the comforting taste of sweet berries. RRGGHHH!!!!
The Artronian combat motto of: "First to fight and last to die" should probably read "Last to fight and first to die".
A close inspection of the typical Artronian would lead one to realise that their widely-spaced eyes result in a fatal blind-spot right in front of them, leading all hand to hand combat with Artronians to a very lethal outcome...for the Artronians, that is. They simply cannot see straight ahead! However, nature is not entirely cruel, for such an eye arrangement gives the Artronians excellent sideways field of vision, disallowing any attempt to flank them or ambush from the side. SO the best way to defeat an Artronian (not that anyone needs any help with that) is to approach them head-on (pun intended).
