The Anti-Xeno Initiative

The Anti-Xeno Initiative is an Elite:Dangerous player-group dedicated to protecting humanity from the Thargoid threat. We defend systems targeted by the vile xenos, study their technology and behavior, and perfect our battle tactics. Whether you seek to save the galaxy, kill some aliens, conduct research, or hone your skills, you will find help here.

Who are we?

The Anti-Xeno Initiative was founded by CMDR Gluttony Fang on 15th of November 3303. We are the largest dedicated AX (Anti-Xeno) player group in Elite:Dangerous and act as a hub for the broader AX Community. We are partnered with Canonn Research, who provide us with the latest findings related to our mission. We also coordinate defense efforts with other player groups to protect as many lives as we can. We constantly strive to get better at what we do and we have some of the best Anti-Xeno experts among us.

The membership in AXI is non-binding, meaning you can also be a part of any other player group you wish. We have people of all walks of life and all matter of allegiance. We ourselves are a completely independent and apolitical - we do not support or oppose any faction, power or group, unless they force our hand. That said, we protect our members. We have a sizable contingent of PvP pilots to repel any attempts at disrupting our primary mission.


Motto of the Anti-Xeno Initiative


The Anti-Xeno Initiative are the primary driving force in the Defense against the Thargoid race. We are in a constant pursuit to remain two steps ahead of the enemy at all times, studying, hunting and developing new tactics and strategies. The Thargoids pose a great threat to humanity as they have shown little regard for human life and with greatly advanced technology and firepower can devastate human settlements and stations in mere hours. It is our purpose to destroy any hostile alien life, before it can destroy us!

The Anti-Xeno Knowledgebase is a collection of countless hours of research by the Anti-Xeno Initiative compiled into one, easy-to-navigate database. The Knowledgebase covers all topics from Combat Guides, Thargoid Statistics, Engineering Guides, Build Guides and much more...

Defense status is where we post updates when the Eagle Eye early warning system gives us prior warning of Thargoid Attacks and current information about Incursions and Infestations. The Anti-Xeno Initiative will coordinate defense operations through this page.

The Leaderboards are a collection of the most impressive Thargoid Kills and challenges involving incredibly difficult fights performed by pilots of the AXI. Here you can see how AXI pilots go above and beyond to show what is possible in such an exhilirating and challenging part of the game.

Our hub of coordination and management, the AXI discord is the primary resource and the best place to find other AXI pilots on all platforms. The Discord is open to all players regardless of platform, squadron or career choice. Here you can also find mentors, guides and help channels where you can ask questions and seek mentoring for anything AX related.
