The Factory is a ship the size of a cruiser originally controlled by the Ikaite resistance force called the Morphic Party but now is free from their control. It serves dual purposes the primary one is to fabricate advanced weaponry that have fully functional Fo Cores inside equivalent to a mini nuclear reactor; the secondary purpose is a mining laser located on the base of the ship, and a host of 500 billion nanites that break down the minerals and a fleet of mining droids to collect them.
The Factory also possesses arms to attach to asteroids and planetary bodies for more stable drilling and operations. Ion cannons have also been attached to the sides of the cruiser assumably by Ikaite engineers.
It is operated by an AI, DELTA.
It appears to be under the command of PRAXIS as it was seen as part of his armada.
