The Epicon, was the last innovation of the Delpha Coalition of Planets. It was a new ship on the line, and was being tested for a future fleet of ships. However, during flight tests, the Annihilation scourged most of the universe.
Before the DCP's and most of the universes demise, the Epicon was one of the DCP's most top secret projects - one that would recover technologies from the most advanced civilizations that exist or have existed known the Coalition, and some of the most alien speies too. Although the DCP has created many marvellous technologies few can rival in the Gigaquadrant, it is still far from some, even though most that had surpassed the DCP has now either transcended in some way or another or had become extinct. The goal before the annihilation was to test the first ship of the line, it would become part of an unstoppable fleet. Technologies would not be wasted by war, others, which the DCP coudn't afford enemies to develop countermeasures, would go into the DCP's grander goals.
After the universal annihilation, not much of the Gigaquadrant was left, what survived had been saved by the godraces, however, the Epicon was lucky enough to have escaped through time itself, using the Q-mirror (see below). With the DCP no more, Captain Yuna was forced to do a a DCP operation in which if the Coalition was destroyed, but the species survived, the best interests of survival they should be protected. Indeed, there were lots of remnants. In the post-scourge universe, there was much calamity, and despite The Epicon's power it would still keep a low profile. It would now work behind the scenes, perhaps for Majestic.
The Epicon is truly on the most powerful ships ever devised. Using DCP technology and those salvaged of even greater civilizations, it can take on an entire Grox fleet, or a ships from almost any Tier 1 civilization. This of course, would be tested...
The DCP were conducting lots of covert missions to steal technologies from civilizations greater than them, some which ended up being built into the ship's systems. Other artefacts were being carried by The Epicon during the Annihilation.
