Fallen Empire fleet]]
Fallen Empires start with all standard, rare and dangerous [[technology]] options already researched, including all technologies limited by ethics, as well as with ten levels in most repeatable technology and five levels in the rest. Also they possess a unique Dark Matter Reactor and Deflector which can be reverse engineered and are the second-best deflectors and best reactor available in the game. They do not, however, have any of the special technologies that are only available through reverse engineering, from Leviathans or from special events. Also they are usually explicitly exempt for any and all of the Crisis Faction Spawn checks.
