The Triceraton R.C.C. was first introduced to to
Palladium books in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Guide to the Universe
back in 1987. They were an alien race that had built a powerful empire.
Well here is the Triceraton R.C.C. for use in the Phase World and Rifts
About 70 years ago a dimensional anomaly in Transgalatic
Empire space resulted in the introduction of two new species to the Three
Galaxies. A race called the Triceratons had planned a surprise attack on
a Ka'Trib ruled planet by using a stolen teleportation system. They had
planned to teleport thousands of Triceraton troopers right into the heart
of a Ka'Trib capitol. The result would have been a quick victory for the
Triceratons if not for the interference of one of the aliens that the
teleportation technology was stolen from. In an attempt to stop the use of
their technology for evil purposes, the alien sabotaged the system at the
last second, causing a massive dimensional anomaly. The result was that
the entire Triceraton attack force, as well as a major portion of the
Ka'Trib capitol that was their target was transported to small planet
in the Transgalatic Empire.
Both Triceratons and Ka'Trib were amazed to discover themselves on a jungle
planet inhabited by only animals. More amazing is that they were both
transformed into mega-damage beings, capable of crushing stone and
steel in their bare hands, and surviving the most powerful weapons fire
either side had access too.
When a nearby planet ruled by the Kreegor picked up the dimensional anomaly
on their instruments, several scout ships were launched to discover what
had happened. To their surprise they discovered two races in the middle of
a war. A
few blasts from their M.D.C. weapons put a stop to the fighting, and all
the Triceratons and Ka'Trib were captured by the Transgalatic Empire.
Over the course of years both the Triceratons and Ka'Trib were assimilated
into the Transgalatic Empire. Triceratons seem to get along well with the
Kreeghor, although they do resent them a little. Triceraton units usually
consist of mostly Triceraton forces and an officer, along with a Kreeghor,
Human, or Wolfen Transgalatic Empire advisor. Triceratons have a dislike
for Machine People, who they say reminds them of an old adversary.
