Empires » Khanate of Orion
A space faring nation of what looks like bipedal cats, their own name and language consisting of what sounds like two cats mating in an iron works, they were called Orions by the Terrans who first encountered them (their home is located in the region of Orion when seen from Terra). The Khanate is a strongly honour based society, with great emphasis placed on personal honour through combat with one's enemies. The nickname for their race is "the Tabbies".
Famed for their fighter craft and tactics, they eschew larger classes of ships other than carriers.
