The Colonial faction, led by Teros Praetor Yunki, has established a new capital on the garden world of Rastaban II in what was the ancient frontier, and is intent on reestablishing the Ashdar as a galactic power. The Imperial Remnant faction still clings to the ruins of the ancient capital on Ashdar Prime, once a planet-sized city, but now a crumbling graveyard. Haduir Emperor Heiropolin XXIV, who claims descent from the Ashdar emperors of old, rules the Remnant from this ancient throne, and also retains ambitions of empire.
The Ashdar are superb pilots and have an affinity for carrier warfare. Despite their pretensions of elder empire, individual Asdhar are good-natured and relate well with other species. Both the Colonial and Remnant factions each have both Teros and Haduir populations, and both use similar ship designs derived from ancient examples. The Colonials have the benefit of frontier experience and trade, while the Remnant have access to Ashdar Prime's technology crypts and the ancient secrets they still contain.
Your Ashdar logo - was that an intentional homage to the Angel Moon Logo? I get a sense of a faction that operates from three key worlds - the old homeworld, the garden planet, and one more?
And these ships look great, especially in that blue-and-gold color scheme. I get a sense of a "Good-guy imperialist race" just from those colors and shapes - a protagonist race that was a descendant of an old and relatively noble (if at least nobly-intentioned) empire.
So I think you've managed to put the feel of the Ashdar's backstory into these ships. And I can't imagine that being an easy thing to do. Nice job.
