Technology in Endless Space is divided into four categories: Galactic Warfare, Applied Sciences,Exploration & Expansion, and Diplomacy & Trading. Certain technologies are specific to a faction. Discovering technologies using Science unlocks various types of Unlocks that advance the capabilities of youir empire.

Galactic WarfareEdit

Galactic warfare technologies

Standard Galactic Warfare technologies

As expected, these technologies focus on waging war - various weapons and defences, plus other modules for your ships, and defensive improvements for systems.

Applied SciencesEdit

Applied Sciences technology tree

Standard Applied Science technologies

The Applied Sciences technologies allow an empire to discover and exploit Strategic Resources and improve your Industry Industry and Research Science economies through improvements. It also provides a number of battle actions

Exploration & ExpansionEdit

Exploration and Expansion technology tree

Standard Exploration & Expansion technologies

Technologies in this area provide access to new types of ship hulls, the ability to colonize and/or improve different types of planets, travel further or faster (i.e., through warpholes), etc.

Diplomacy & TradingEdit

Diplomacy and Trading technology tree

Standard Diplomacy & Trading technologies

Diplomacy and Trading technologies deal with agriculture or Food production,  improving the dust Dust economy, negotiating options with other empires, trade routes, manage your citizenry, and increase the limits of a fleet's command points and the size of the hero academy.

N.B. The above table will differ somewhat from the Cravers and the Harmony technology trees. The Cravers have several unique technologies that replace existing universal technologies, and due to the Harmony's inability to use dust or heroes, their Diplomacy & Trading tree, in particular, is very different.

Technically, every technology in the Harmony Diplomacy and Trading tree (except for Extreme Consumption) is specific to them. However, these mostly entail either:

  • having a different position in the tree (and thus a different research cost and/or prerequisites); or
  • the absence of an improvement which only enhances Dust production or augments a hero (neither of which is useful to the Harmony)

Specifically listed in the table are those technologies which are unique to the Harmony or differ for reasons other than those given above.
