Introducing the Siphen

The Siphen are an alien race existing as and subsisting on high forms of energy. They have brought about a state of catastrophic entropy in their own universe and now seek to escape through the nexus to another universe.

The crew of the Orion encounter the Siphen shortly before the events of Flight of Passion, and in the ensuing battle the Orion is damaged as well as the dimensional portal leading back to Earth. Though the Siphen are defeated, more of their kind will surely follow.
