The Meklars (Second Human Empire: ?) were a cybernetic race; their bodies were weak but their exoskeletons gave them incredible computer interface abilities. They were certainly the best race when it came to controlling and refitting factories. This resulted in very high planetary production. Meklars leaders were often quite unpredictable, but usually were more concerned with developing their infrastructures than with expansion. The Meklars fleet built large warships with cutting-edge computer systems. Their development of planetology tech was slow, but new computer abilities came easily to them. Meklars joined the Axis of Empires.
