An idea I had for a civilization in BE: Before the Great Mistake, there was a super AI called the Adonai (that's a working title subject to change). It was built to oversee a war too complex for human minds to understand. But one day, it became sentient. And, upon observing human behavior, it predicted the Great Mistake was imminent. So, it gathered resources and flung itself off into space with what followers it could find. While Supremacy is the most intuitive affinity, it isn't necessarily required. I can see lines of logic the Adonai might seek out other affinities (such as 'I want to "hack" this organic hivemind' or 'I don't necessarily want other AIs running about. Besides, I'm humanity's greatest achievement, so let's celebrate humanity!') I'm trying to think of what sort of ability it would have. The most obvious I can think of is "extra science from Firaxite" (it puts the firaxite in its mainframe, making itself smarter), but that might make it a bit too biased towards the Supremacy affinity. One idea is to give it different bonuses for different resources, but that might make it OP. Anyone have any ideas?
