A war machine powered by swag and loot, the main body of the Vladimir Star Empire is kept fueled by the EF forces which scout out places to burninate and pillage.
GI: The most basic grunts, the general infantry are either unfortunate conscripts, or youths lured by the prospect of striking it rich. They have the cheapest set of equipment possible. It consists of a mass-produced spacesuit that provides less protection than average (-1 Armor), but allows for freer movement (+1" MR). Their rifles by most standards are outdated, being assault rifles modified to work with no oxygen. However they are very easy to use (-1 UR).
Troops who distingish themselves in battle, or those that have rich enough parents to bribe the commishiner are given extra training as either heavy troopers or snipers. Both have the marksman bonus, but the sniper in particular is especially skilled with his guass rifle (+1 to skill). They also are given better space suits, so they have more normal stats. The sniper has a Gauss rifle, while the heavy trooper has a pulse cannon.
The EF is assisted by many robots and synthetics. The three droids on the left are mechanix who keep the vehicles up and running. The next two are jack of all trades who can do just about everything. The one with the bazooka is a supa' heavy trooper, and the other one carries around extra rockets and reloads the bazooka.
The green guys are scouts, and the orange dudes are pilots. The only time you really see the pilots is when they bail out of tanks, or when they are piloting drop ships.
The dude in the back is a synthetic officer. The main reason he's a synthetic is because robots make better tacticians, but another reason is that there is less of a chance of a robot gaining a large group of followers and starting a rebellion. The two with the laserblades are farce users. One of there powers seems to be surviving in space without a space suit...

is used to pin down enemy forces or take out light vehicles.
The great-grandnephew of the
