(primarily) low tech factions is (mostly) the the same... 
i know there are differences and they have green buffalos and lashers and stuff but they really don't feel like as much of a presence in the sector as other factions :-X

my suggestion:
- change CGR doctrine to be more carrier-focused and showcase their "unique" fighter, the Perdition, better - something like Warships 2 Carriers 4 as opposed to the current state of both CGR and Heg running Warships 4 Carriers 2
- deprioritize Condor, Mora, Legion for Hegemony, prioritize Enforcer, Dominator for them instead (they already have Onslaught prioritized, which CGR doesn't have/know, so that's good)

extra suggestion for (LC) skins that requires new content:
- an (LC) Condor/Mora/maybe Venture wouldn't be amiss
- put a hullmod on (LC) skins that like, idk, "Damage Control Crews" requires more minimum crew but increases weapon/engine repair rate in combat (and maybe damage repair/CR recovery out of combat?)
- and/or (LC) carriers could maybe get Expanded Deck Crews for half cost? like have them have EDC as a builtin but less OP, but not so much less that you're just effectively being forced to always buy EDC

Some lore justification for this, btw: CGR has the population to man deck crews and fighters, but they don't have the access to low-tech domain military staples that the Hegemony does. Interestingly in the lore, the two main low tech carriers (Mora and Condor) are conversions of civilian craft (in the Mora's case, a civilian craft that itself was a conversion of a military craft, but the point stands)... almost like this was already planned ;)

I'm trying to imagine the Luddmas Song:

Deck the halls with dead robotics,
Fallen are the damned, the Ludd doth say!
Feast upon the lambs in ashes
Fallen are the damned, the Ludd doth say.

Don we now, our lined ablatives,
Taking aim at foes who block our way!
We sinless few, who shield the masses
Fallen are the damned, the Ludd doth say!

Luddmas is easy.  Title song of Black Sabbath.  Also, maybe War Pigs or Electric Funeral.  For AC/DC fans, Hell's Bells.
