Very little is known about the Military know as the 4th Order there goals and nature are shrouded in mystery what can be said is that the Megastructure houses nothing but the 4th Order and that the Order itself value Discipline and knowledge they have several military squads or forces and are made up of highly intelligent individuals and well trained individuals there only known field agent known publicly is Stephen Greenslade the reason for this is unknown within the 4th order Stephen is highly valued though he himself don't realize it, what is known about the Order is that there ultimate goal is the evolution of humanity and they will step in or send Stephen in if something is threatening humanity backed with all the Orders resources and most trained squads as support.

The Fourth Order dabble in both modern technology and go beyond into the realms that would be deemed scifi or make believe going so far as to utilize Space time trapping metals know as Metatron, Nanotech, thermal energy, cloning people and utilizing mechs, Biotics, optical tech and much more it is currently unknown if Stephen is a clone but guessing by his importance it's highly unlikely the list of squads are as Follows.

Nanosuit squadron

No Caption Provided

A squadron of Nanosuited Soldiers specializing in Stealth to tanking they wear Nanosuits that symbiotically bond with them that enhance there Strength to being able to kick a tank down the street aswell as lift the tank to enhancing their perception to were they see bullets in extremely slow motion, they can shrug off a Apcs cannon but any higher they will be severely hurt or killed if there bodies aren't blown to smithereens the suit can reanimate the corpse by uploading new data straight to the brain finally they are far faster then humans significantly faster then bullets and capable of running at Mach speeds it's currently unknown how many of these the Order have, the Nanosuits link up to the cerebral cortex and allow for data processing or data uplink aswell as a automated voice that allows the user to know if allies or hostiles are near aswell as monitoring the functionality of the suit and wearers vitals as such because of the risk of possible hack the suits can counter hack for the wearer aswell as autohack not particularly fast though.

Thermal energy cloned squadron

No Caption Provided

A squadron of Cloned peak humans with enhanced reflexes, while technically expendable they have currently lost no men and so far there have been no defects with cloning this squadron employ thermal energy to power there weapons such as plasma rifles or energy based weapons the weapons will only fire with thermal energy the squad have thermal energy packs built into their suits that is connected to the gun which is connected to the body the guns themselves will fire thermal energy blasts that are as hot as the core of the sun, they can also use thermal energy to heal wounds assuming they have any left they are able to bullet time but there are not really tanky they move normal human speed they are used sometimes for supression or assaulting more employed when dealing with hostile alien threats that are incapable of speech.

Fourth Order Remnant Vanguard squadron

As the name suggests they are the Vanguard squadron, equipped with Order Remnant armor aside from allowing its wearer to survive in environments like outer space, it is also reinforced with sheets of ceramic plating on non-flexible parts of the body. Each part of armor, regardless of its weight, has a kinetic barrier generator and an onboard computer that can give readouts on the environment, liaise with terminals to download data, and check local wildlife against the xenobiology database, the kinetic barrier makes it to were anything that is faster or as fast as a bullet will simply be nullified by the barrier however anything slower will penetrate the kinetic barrier and impact the armor they carry Carnifex magnums utilize omni blades Mattock rifles and the V-7 Black widow Sniper rifle aswell as employing Biotics to seemingly lift things like Tk or temporarily unleashing a contained Lightspeed tackle crash that mimics a type of phasing as they can even go through environmental objects to the opponent due to the Kinetic barriers in there suits this is all possible, on the regular they have enhanced reflexes and run like a world class sprinter reflexes are such they see Lightning somewhat slower then most people.

Exosuit Ninja squadron

Pretty self explanatory the spooks of the order specialist in Stealth and will employ ninja weaponry such as Monofilament Katanas, Plasma Katanas, Plasma Shuriken, Plasma Kunai, Monofilament Kunai and Monofilament Shurikens aswell as Silent guns and even special bow and arrow there exosuits grant them the reaction speed to slice bullets with ease and to the normal eye it is nearly impossible to lock them down speed wise, they also have built in stealth camo in their exosuits and enough strength to smash through a concrete wall they also throw their Kunai at Mach speed the exosuits themselves are made out of a mixture of Carbon and Titanium.

The Main force

No Caption Provided

The typical run of the mill soldiers only thing impressive to note is they can carry all manner of weaponry and operate mechs and even have there own variation of a plasma gun but it has ammo and it doesn't channel the insane amount of heat still it will burn a hole through most metals especially from several shots of the gun and finally they have subdermal implants that allow them to take more punishment before going down.

Known Equipment thus far

Mechs

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

While smaller and less powerful then Stephen's Mech they have thousands of these equipped with either Gatling guns plasma guns or plasma blades and missle launchers and some are equipped with mining equipment so they can mine Jupiter easier they also can transform and have flight modes but are limited to only being able to fire the built in missles.

Modern/Futuristic/Experimental guns and weaponry/materials

Plasma rifle

No Caption Provided

The plasma rifle regularly it will burn through most metals and not reach star temperature but when the thermal squad use theirs it sends thermal energy blasts out that are as hot as the core of the sun.

Futuristic assault rifles

No Caption Provided

Behaves in similar fashion then any other custom Assault rifles the only added difference is the actual ammo clip can be completely emptied at once like a shotgun blast essentially making it a assasult rifle packing a hidden shotgun.

4th Order Mattock

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

The Mattock is a micro-scaled mass accelerator, using mass-reducing fields and magnetic force to propel miniature slugs to lethal speeds to generate ammunition a weapon shaves a projectile the size of a sand grain from a dense block of metal contained within the weapon's body. The projectile is launched at supersonic velocities by decreasing its mass in a mass effect field. The rounds for the Mattock are special they are warp rounds once fired the round will immediately warp to the hostile even if they are behind cover making it extraordinarly hard to evade, luckily they are only employed by the Vanguards.

V-7 Black Widow

No Caption Provided

The Black Widow is also a micro-scaled mass accelerator, using mass-reducing fields and magnetic force to propel miniature slugs to lethal speeds to generate ammunition a weapon shaves a projectile the size of a sand grain from a dense block of metal contained within the weapon's body. The projectile is launched at supersonic velocities by decreasing its mass in a mass effect field. However it differs by have the range of a sniper rifle and using thermal rounds to blow a hole the size of a Antimaterial rifle round through most material.

4th Order Carnifex

No Caption Provided

The Carnifex the side arm of the Vanguard squadron also like the Black Widow and Mattock a micro-scaled mass accelerator, using mass-reducing fields and magnetic force to propel miniature slugs to lethal speeds to generate ammunition a weapon shaves a projectile the size of a sand grain from a dense block of metal contained within the weapon's body. The projectile is launched at supersonic velocities by decreasing its mass in a mass effect field, it blows holes the size of a 45 magnum through most material by jacketing thermal rounds.

Mono-filament Katana

No Caption Provided

Similar to a HF Blade these Katanas slice the Molecular structure and are made out of a material similar to Carbon nanotubes however they don't really require strength to wield and unlike HF Blades they do not vibrate they are just simply that sharp used by the Ninja squadron.

Plasma Katana

No Caption Provided

Works on the Same principal as the standard plasma Rifle just when it comes to cuts and the plasma beam is concentrated to not burn the user not much to mention besides it being used by the Ninja squadron.

Despair Kunai

are a set of throwing knives with micronic edges, used by the the Ninja squadron.

Dread

No Caption Provided

The Dread is a deadly hunting bow firing bladed arrows that can Decapitate the Edge of the arrows are Mono-filament used by some of the Ninja squadron.

Mono-Filament Plasma Shuriken and Kunai

A one and done kind of deal after being thrown they will quickly reach the Sun's core heat aswell as cut the Molecular bonds not many will survive these however they can't be retrieved after thrown giving a few minutes it will simply disentergrate the Ninja squadron will use these on occasion.

Omni-Blade/Omni-tool

No Caption Provided

"omni-blade," a disposable silicon-carbide weapon flash-forged by the tool's mini-fabricator. The transparent, nearly diamond-hard blade is created and suspended in a mass effect field safely away from the user's skin. Warning lights illuminate the field so the searing-hot blade only burns what it is intended to: the opponent, used by the Vanguard as there melee weapon.

Element Zero

Element Zero, also known as "eezo", is a rare material that, when subjected to an electrical current, releases dark energy which can be manipulated into a mass effect field, raising or lowering the mass of all objects within that field. A positive current increases mass, a negative current decreases it. This "mass effect" is used in countless ways, from generating artificial gravity to manufacturing high-strength construction materials. It is most prominently used to enable faster-than-light space travel without causing time dilation. When the Order discovered the ruins on Jupiter that housed Stephen's mech, they also discovered refined element zero that had been left behind by whomever the Mech belonged to previously It enabled research into FTL ship drives among other things.

Blackstar

No Caption Provided

Experimental weapon nicknamed "Blackstar" The gun exploits an element zero core and mass effect fields to fire gravitational singularities - micro black holes - that revert to their natural lethality when they impact a solid object. The blast tears apart the strong nuclear forces that hold the target's atoms together, resulting in a localized fusion reaction in light atoms and a fission reaction in heavy atoms, the weapon alters nuclei, thus changing the chemical composition of the target. It destroys organic tissue, corrodes surviving armor, and leaves a visible trail of light-emitting particles.

More may be revealed in due time about the Order....
