The storyline of the Dark Space Bandits:
The Dark Space Bandits originated as a Blacktron splinter faction, formed from those who did not want to conform to the new blacktron. They took a few classic ships and a large amount of money, and after some upgrades, color re-dos, and some finding a few contacts higher-up in the Galaxy's command, they began to raid space lanes of travel.
The Dark Space Bandits knew that eventually, they would be destroyed, both by the new Blacktron and the current Space Police. To deal with this threat, the faction used their contacts to hire many top scientists and engineers, who developed many technologies for them. These technologies were mostly employed in improving the ships and cloaking the bases, making them invisible to most forms of detection, save a special wavelength emitted from Dark Space Bandit ships whenever in close proximity to a base.
From there they expanded, colonizing a number of systems and maintaining control of a large portion of the galaxy. They hired many workers, among them many skilled professionals, making the Dark Space Bandits a successful space empire, not a simple bandit faction.
They eventually became famous, and employ a very large number of people, making them one of the galaxy's larger employers. They have many members in government buildings, controlling things from behind the scenes.
