Yeah completely different species and civilisations those Photoners from ARKS...

They are completely different species and civilization though, that's a thing the game will make a point of itself.

...Is that sarcasm? They literally are different species. The ARKS are genetically completely different from Photoners, just because they look the same doesn't mean their genetics are the same. It's sci-fi. There's plenty of aliens who look like humans in spite of being nothing alike genetically, like the Time Lords or Kryptonitans and Daxamites (who in spite of being descended from Kryptonians, are genetically different from each other, Daxamites are immune to kryptonite but weak to lead poisoning, it's like how Romulans aren't Vulcans and Remans (who at least look considarably different from Vulcans and Romulans) aren't Romulans in spite of their shared ancestory).

Also the Photoner civilization was wiped out yet ARKS survived, there's a clear enough distinction between the two civilizations there, the difference is almost the same as the Roman Empire and Italy. If the Italians were test tube babies created by the Romans to fight the Carthaginians and the Carthaginians were also test tube babies created by the Romans anyway...

Humans on the game's version of Earth and ARKS humans aren't even the same species.
