Zephai

The Zephai Empire is the empire used by player 4 in Space Empires II if player 4 is AI-controlled. The Zephai use a shipset which somewhat resembles purple floating brains, though it could be argued that some of their ships also resemble recolored Ferengi ships from Star Trek.

The SEII races had no backstory, and the name "Zephai" is rather hard to analyze (could it be possibly a derivative of "Zaphod" from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? some sort of emulation of H.P. Lovecraft's character naming style?), so it's really hard to say what Aaron Hall had in mind for the Zephai...
