While the Scourge prefer to make additions to already existing infrastructure, sometimes capturing a planet means eliminating its existing orbital defences. In situations like these they will employ purpose built stations, the most common of of which are the Ephyra and Nematocyst. Though it is unknown to the UCM how the Scourge deploy them in orbit, none have been seen in construction, their presence alone means heavy Scourge occupation.
The Ephyra is the more numerous of the two, based upon rows of Oculus weapons, it seems the Scourge favour this more ubiquitous tech than other long range defensive weapons. Though not particularly dangerous at range, it's still enough of a threat for attackers to steer clear of.
The Nematocyst is the long range specialist of these defensive stations. It's usually the first to fire upon any engaging fleet, and usually a priority target. Its Volcano Lance is capable of painting a ship with a beam of thermal energy, not unlike that of the Furnace weapons on Scourge ships. Though the power involved causes the station to be as visible as the ship it's targeting.
Space stations are integral to many scenarios in Dropfleet Commander - highly appropriate for the game's orbital combat setting!
