【Starfinder CRB】威胁:虫群(THE SWARM)

虫群
星际蝗灾


有的种族能与其所处的生态系统和谐共存,也有的种族选择把后者吞噬殆尽,并在疯狂无脑的扩张中啖食一切。虫群就是这种例子。

曾经名为kucharn,现在得名虫群的种族进化出了一系列的蜂巢思维,每一个群落都具备着单一集合意识,而其中每一虫子般的个体则是仅仅作为如同雄峰一样的零件,并且会不经思考地接受命令。高效,饥渴,并赞颂着各自的庇护神祇,这些掠食者的蜂巢意识们彼此持续不断地争斗,直到某个意识学会了如何把其他群落的智能融合到自己之中。而这个崭新的集合意识迅速征服了其他同伴,然后其随之而生的饥渴也让它把自己的母星在短短的时间内啃食得一干二净。如果不是这个意志理解了星际航行的方法,恐怕虫群的命运就到此为止了。虫群将自己撕裂成一个个生体碎片,唤起自身吞噬一切的饥渴以扭曲基因,并塑造出能带着自己跨越星海的生体战舰,降临到一个又一个世界上,不断地吞噬,毁灭,吸收。

虫群的百万单位在自治的角度上仍可以划分成各个次等群落,但就跟雄峰一样,这些群落做出的决定更类似来自复杂程序的自发反应,而不是出自真正的思想,同时它们也一直被虫群意志的指令所压制。这些次等群落在被派出去进行侦测任务时能独立运作,但当其回归到虫群意志的心灵感应范围内时,从个体到整个次等群落都会重新融合回整体当中。而凌驾一切的虫群意志能处理超乎想象的庞大数据,可以迅速改变新吸收的物种,甚至能慢慢地调整虫群的生体部分以创造出强大的武器,然而,由于其疯狂扩张、吞噬一切的本能冲动占据了压倒性的地位,因此虫群意志基本上无法理解沟通。与虫群的协商谈判总是以失败告终,而只有最庞大的军力才能阻止其吞噬世界并将其化为自身生体材料的无情脚步。在虫群意志看来,宇宙中所有的有机生命都是威胁,而所有的威胁都必须被毁灭。

奇怪的是,某次反常的突变让某个次等群落自虫群舰队中分裂出来,并从其毁灭一切的家长手上逃了出去,成为了热爱和平的Shirrens。当然,所有种族都会对虫群侵入自己头顶上的星空而感到恐惧无比,但Shirrens则认为再次被融入虫群意志远比起毁灭的光景还要可怕得多。
劇透 -  原文:
THE SWARM
Interstellar Locusts

There are races that live in balance with their ecosystem, and then there are those that consume it, devouring everything in mindless expansion. Such is the case with the Swarm.

Originally called the kucharn, the race now called the Swarm evolved as a series of hives, each colony a collective consciousness in which the individual bug-like components acted as drones, without agency of their own. Efficient, voracious predators, each worshiping its own patron deity, the hives competed constantly with each other, until one learned the trick of subsuming another colony’s intelligence into its own. This new collective quickly overwhelmed the others, and before long it had stripped its birth planet bare with its reflexive hunger. This might have been the end of the Swarm, had it not come to understand the principles of spaceflight. Tearing itself apart into component pieces, rising above its all- consuming hunger to twist its own genome, it crafted biological warships capable of carrying it through the stars, descending on world after world to devour, destroy, and absorb.

The Swarm’s millions of individual units remain divided into subcolonies with a certain degree of autonomy, but like the drones themselves, their decisions are more akin to complex programmed reflexes than true thought, constantly overridden by the directives of the master identity. While they’re capable of operating independently when sent out on scouting missions, both individuals and entire subcolonies are subsumed into the gestalt when they return within telepathic range of the hive. The overarching Swarm consciousness—while capable of nigh-unimaginable data processing, leaps of induction, and even the ability to slowly modify its own biology to create powerful weapons—remains fundamentally unreasonable due to an overwhelming, instinctive impulse to blindly expand and devour. Attempts to negotiate with the Swarm always fail, and only massive force can deter it from descending on a world and stripping it of biological material before moving on. In its view, every other organism in the universe represents a threat, and all threats must be destroyed.

Strange, then, that a freak mutation should lead one subcolony to split off and flee its ravager-parent, becoming the peace-loving shirrens. While all races rightly fear the arrival of the Swarm in their space, shirrens find the idea of being once more subsumed into the Swarm’s hive mind even worse than the prospect of annihilation.
