Anyway, the Aesdherians are actually the coolest species I've seen in the entire FSverse (except perhaps, by a small gap, the Shivans) so far. Their are literally painted grim black, with those creepy "tentacles" the best addition I've seen for any ship so far. Too bad their beams were nerfed...or is it just the Akrotiri?
Also, their fighters and bombers are outstanding as well. The Aesdherians are definetly fine addition to FS SCP.
Can anyone release an Aesdherian juggernaut
There's a lot of history you don't know here, Marcov. The tragically named Aesdherians use Aldo's Nightmare models, which he originally built for a campaign called Reciprocity. They've been used in many campaigns; ASW is only the latest.
He eventually stopped making them because he thought they were too generic and terrible-looking, so the odds of getting a Nightmare dreadnought are low.
If you want more of them, just go get some Babylon 5 Shadow ships, which are in a similar design vein.
Then if you 'get' it, what's wrong with calling Ancients as Ancients, and what's wrong with the '-ians'?
And how is 'Aesdherians' generic? Just cause of the suffix?
Because you can do better.
'Aesdherian' contains the Tolkienesque 'Ae' and 'dh' sound clusters and the '50s pulp-SF 'ians' suffix, which is a generic and unimaginative suffix used to indicate 'a species from a planet named (in this case) Aesdher'. The word is meaningless, so it fails to evoke much of anything except possibly associations with 'Aether'.
