I kow I may have asked this before, but I was wondering. You know ship production factions start with the escape pod datacard, do droid/items factions start with anything, because they all seem to have datacards of some sort.
Also, not all the item factions have DCs. I know Santhe doesn't off the top of my head. But as Arke pointed out, that page lists all the DCs and facilities they can build for each faction - if its not listed, they don't get it.
