The Votanis Collective is a government of the Votans.


Silora Voske


The VC is led by Vizier Quando and formerly Vice Chancellor Silora Voske. ("When Twilight Dims the Sky Above") The government consists of a Parliament who vote on key issues. ("Main Mission:Gunslinger Trials: Local Representation") Frontier Ambassadors are appointed to promote Votan goodwill in frontier areas. Castithans hold a lot of the power in the Votanis Collective since its inception. ("Loading screen")


Dark Matter

The Votanis Collective maintains an army. ("Intel:Dark Matter") Ekaru Kome and Dark Matter are units in this army. ("Main Mission:Dark Metamorphosis: Dark Shadows", "Main Mission:Operation Siren Song")




The Collective's beginnings occurred during the War of Six when the Votans, and the Volge, fought against the Omec and pushed them back to their homeworld, ending centuries of Dread Harvests. ("Fun Facts: Season 3, Episode 5") The Votanis Collective was first officially formed when the future destruction of the Votanis System was discovered and the construction of the Ark fleet began. ("The Cast Against Assimilation") It was formed from five of the Votan races - Castithans, Irathients, Indogene, Sensoth and Liberata. The Gulanee also exist in their ranks. ("Data Recorder:My Name is Ara", "Loading screen") The Collective sent Indogene saboteurs onto the Omec ships to plant bombs and destroy them to stop the Omec from journeying with them to Earth. ("The Broken Bough") Castithans often held positions of power within the collective. ("Loading screen")

VC envoy

The Collective was accepted into the United Nations in 2014 and Onulu Toruku was named ambassador. The colony of Sulos in South America was founded for the Collective. ("Votans and Humans: Together at Last?", "Loading screen") The Collective made a deal with the town of Defiance to supply them with weapons until their operations were disturbed and they ended the deal. ("A Well Respected Man") The Collective was in talks to sign a major strategic alliance in 2046. ("I Just Wasn't Made For These Times") The VC controlled areas of Belize were destroyed by the Kaziri in 2047. ("I Almost Prayed") The Votanis Collective began taking areas in North America after the destruction of New York City and the crippling of the Earth Republic. ("The World We Seize")

The Votanis Collective sent scouting missions into North America, including one led by Rahm Tak. When they learned that Tak was riding settlements and killing Humans they sent an envoy to call him back, offering amnesty if he stopped his war. ("Where the Apples Fell") Vice Chancellor Silora Voske went with a unit to North America to stop Tak but he had already been taken out by Defiance. She offered mayor Amanda Rosewater a mutual exchange pact in return for her helping the VC form a peace with the newly arrived Omec. Voske was killed by Joshua Nolan, then hallucinating due to ark tech in his brain. ("When Twilight Dims the Sky Above") In 2049 members of Dark Matter returned under the command of the Collective, while some of them formed the Neo Votanis Front.
