The Mardūk thought that their own culture was the best, and destroyed all other cultures that they came into contact with. However, they were released from Ingusu's tyranny by Ishtar, and established a friendship with the Earth.
The Mardūk Fleet is composed of such ships as Fleet Flagships, Large Battleships, Medium Battleships, and Scout Ships; under the commanding officer Ingusu's mothership.
