Babylon 5 - A Call to Arms - Centauri Republic
Babylon 5 - A Call to Arms - Centauri Republic

Once known as the Lion of the Galaxy, the Centauri Republic today is an empire in decline, with many of its people still hankering after their golden age of power even as they continue to lose worlds and colonies. Despite constant pressure from the Narn Regime, however, the Centauri are still one of the most technologically advanced races after the Minbari and Vorlons, and are regarded as a major diplomatic power among the other governments, they probably still hold more influence than the expanding Earth Alliance, despite the old resentments many feel towards them.

Over four hundred years ago, the Centauri Republic spread across the stars and its power was almost unmatched. The Minbari and Vorlons preferred to keep out of the affairs of other races, giving Centauri Prime free reign to dominate wherever it wished. Though they never strayed far into the region now controlled by the Earth Alliance, the Centauri did take over (some might say enslave) many of the systems now in the League of Non-Aligned Worlds. They truly believed that they were civilizing primitive cultures, providing law, technology and a place in the stars in return for tribute and the exploitation of resources and this more or less took place everywhere they explored. Many in the League still view the Centauri with extreme distrust but the presence of the Republic spurred many races to reach for the stars, including humanity.

The Centauri Republic may seem like an empire in decline but it still possesses many great technological achievements and this is reflected in its fleet. The Vorchan fast attack cruisers may seem fragile but, when massed, can prove devastating to the most advanced vessels, while the dreaded Primus has held sway over dominion worlds for centuries.
