So from what i can gather of them the Reds are the aggressors here right? wanting to rule over the anything and everything. they have a severely misguided and twisted sense of right and wrong. slavery, murder with "honor", war on anything not under their thumb, forced drug addiction, and most likely some dirty laundry i missed. the golds while not innocent seem to be only resorting to the extreme measures of the war as a way to slow or stop an foe they cant face head on with their numbers as of currently. The infrastructure to me is what separates them. the Golds don't seem ready for war like this. like they got caught with their pants down. then had to scramble to defend themselves. the Reds well they have a military almost Spartan like look at things. to the point i don't think it matters in their minds right or wrong. The golds are not perfect but i feel like the Reds would sooner or later start trying to control more planets and out-breed the galaxy to take it over. just how their talking and mindset lead me to believe. again I could be wrong. I just want to get some other peoples view on this. maybe some input from the creator of the race?
