Also another thing of note is the Whale Hunting in sector 4. The Arvonians are part of the Hegemony. Arvonians are known to love space whales, and would rather fight you to the death then let you live when you hurt one.
I am going to assume that the Kraliens have not told the Arvonians that they hunt space whales in sector 4. If that informations ‘happens’ to make it’s way to the Arvonians, we might be able to drive a wedge between the forces, weakening the Hegemony considerably.
