Aliens : Non-Council races
The Geth are a humanoid race of networked Ais. They were created by the quarians 300 years ago as tols of labor and war. When the geth howed signs of self-evolution, the quarians attempted to exterminate the,. The geth won the resulting war. This example has lef legal, systematic repression of artificial intelligences in galactic society.
The geth possess a unique distributed intelligence. An individual has rudimentary animal insincts, but as their numbers and proximity increase, the apparent intelligence of each individual improves. In groups, they can reason, analyze situations, and use tactics as well as any organic race.
Geth space is located at the trailing end of the perseus arm, beyond the lawless terminus systems. The perseus veil , and obscuring 'dark nebula' of opaque gas and dust, lies between their space and the terminus systems.
Geth : ArmaturesEdit
Armatures are quadruped all-terrain heavy weapons platforms, akin to the armored fighting vechicles of other races. Geth being synthetic intelligences, armatures are not crewed vehicles, but intellicent entities , capable of independent decision-making and learning.
Armatures are equipped with heavy kinectic barriers. Their main cannon, mounted on the articulated 'head' turret, appears to be highly efficent conventional mass accelerator. It is capable of firing in anti- personnel and anti-tank modes. Some armatures carry drones into battle, presumably for reconnaissance purposes. Others host a swarm of insect-sized repair microbots.
Geth : HoppersEdit
The geth models collectively dubbed 'hoppers' by aliance forcers are electronic warfare platforms. They can project electromagnetic radiation across a broad spectrum as an offensive weapon. They can also perform cyber warfare attacks against the onboard computers of body armor hardsuits and weapons, adversely affecting their performance.
The structure of hoppers consist of an advanced and highly elastic artifical muscle material. This allows a hopper to compress its entire body for powerful leaps. Hoppers also have thousands of molecule-scale 'barbs; on the surfaces of their hands and feet, which are used to cling to wall and ceilings. Hoppers are very difficult targets , leaping from one surface to another in rapid succession.
The Quarians have no record of any Geth models similar to hoppers. This new morphotype must have been developed over the last three hundred years by the geth themselves. This is troubling proof that the geth are continuing to move towards technological singularity. Experts in synthetic life are intriqued that hoppers appear to be even more organic than the baseline geth.
The indentified Subtypes of hopper have been codenamed, Sapper, Stalker, and Ghost.
