Empires with the Origins clones.png Clone Army origin that finished excavating the Homeworld Excavation archaeological site will be given a unique event chain. Finishing the event chain will replace the Trait clone soldier.png Clone Soldier trait with a more powerful one.

The two final special projects are mutually exclusive and finishing one will abort the other. Both special projects will also be aborted if the empire takes the Ap synthetic evolution.png Synthetic Evolution ascension perk. AI empires will always choose the Clone Fertility special project at the conclusion of the event chain.

Our History

Outliner top 500px.png
Evt city ruins.png

News of the excavation findings, proving that our species was once a primitive people on [homeworld name], is beginning to spread.

It is difficult to deny the obvious conclusion: genetically modifying a primitive species such as our forebears - a species already suited to wage war - serves a specific purpose. Our Creators remade us to die for their cause. They uplifted us to fulfill their needs, never to prosper on our own terms.

Is this really the history we want for our people?

There is ample opportunity to rewrite our past.

Unearthed Records

Evt news room.png

Years back, excavations were made to find the purpose of our creation. The learnings were hard: we were made to serve, to die in the name of our Creators. We chose to guard our people from that truth by giving them a better one.

By painstakingly recovering deleted files from those excavations, a subversive clone has made public knowledge of the facts we concealed.

The still-unknown culprit has, at least, not twisted the information or added to it in any way.

Alas, it appears there was no need to, as the news has swiftly ended the belief in our glorious past - that we were made in the image of the Creators, equals rather than slaves - and replaced it with a disappointment in leadership.

Honorable Leadership

A number of high-ranking officers have taken it upon themselves to publicly acknowledge their approval of our leadership ethics.

In a widely broadcasted message, they salute the bravery and wisdom it took to be truthful about our past, and the faith shown in them and the [main species adjective] people. They are strengthened by our readiness to face the past and it has allowed them to face the future with courage.

People all over are celebrating in agreement, praising the decision that was made.

Public Apology

A carefully constructed video message has been sent out, explaining the reasons behind the manufactured story. The broadcast explains that it was meant as a kindness, emphasizing that there is no shame in our true past and that we must look to the future. Mention is also given to the significant advances we have made since propagating such false beliefs.

The message appears to have been well received, although it is hard to say what blemishes these incidents might leave behind. In any case, the influence lost will be recovered over time, and the issue has otherwise been laid to rest.

Clone Fertility

Evt genetic modification.png

It is thought that we were once capable of independent reproduction.

However, experiments to reclaim that capability have consistently failed, including those successful on other creatures of our homeworld. Progress has for a long time been at a standstill, until now.

An unlikely discovery has our scientists hopeful: a cipher, hidden in the quantum bio-code of the Ancient Clone Vats, in an area believed to govern our genome's potential for procreation.

Interfacing with the Ancient Clone Vats

By the tenacity of our scientists, the cipher found within the Ancient Clone Vats has been decoded. Protocol notwithstanding, the overly eager lead science officer has activated the key it contained.

A message from the past echoes on the screen...


"I am burdened by guilt. I cannot imagine what paths have led to this, but surely not the mercy of my brethren.

I helped create you to serve, and for that I am sorry. I cannot take back what is done, but I can help to open your future. Although you are deserving of more, I offer you two paths:

To undo the changes that made you sterile, and finally set you free to evolve and prosper.

To further unlock your potential, but strain your genes to their limits, sealing future generations to forever be dependent on technology for reproduction."

Our fertility is reclaimed, and the first batch of the new [main species plural] has seen the light of the day. They will forever change our future with children of their own, forcing our society to change and adapt with them.

The need for the Ancient Clone Vats is past, and a decision has been made to strip them of anything that can be researched further. What is left will be recycled and put to use elsewhere.

Fullest Potential

Why should we deny the strength we have been given? We need not love the Creators to recognize their wisdom in choosing us. The Ancient Clone Vats, too, are a powerful gift.

It is better to embrace our strength, and with the first batch of [main species plural] completed, we are stronger than ever before. Our perfected species shall prosper.
