Since its inception, the Empire of the Hand gained much of its territory by liberating worlds from the control of petty Warlords in the Unknown Regions, such as Nuso Esva. As a result, the outlying planets of the Empire of the Hand often became prey for pirate groups and species whose territory was threatened, hoping to scare the Empire of the Hand away from their own holdings. Although on their own these threats were insignificant, the number of groups involved made them impossible to ignore. The Brask-class Tactical Defense Station was designed largely to combat these forces, and provide a rapid and efficient response to minor threats. Althought lightly armed, the Brask is able to hold up to 24 squadrons, earning them the nickname "Hives" among Hand pilots. Additionally, it is outfitted with powerful sensors allowing it to detect any ship within several hundred kilometers.
