Gar are massive ornate ships and are unlike anything else in the galaxy. These symbols of Terran lineage and power can be both beautiful and terrible. As formidable ships of war a Gar is easily the match for a large battle station and can host a considerable fleet of smaller more common warships to bolster its presence. Serving as the physical manifestation of the Terran commander’s will these great ships are capable of feats beyond the comprehension of lesser beings.

Each Gar includes a set of five unique abilities and upgradable technologies that can be used to further improve your Gar’s active and passive abilities.
