Default Someone discovers Draka

How would Homeline react to discovering the world of the Draka?
How would Centrum react?
And how would Reich-5 react?

Link to some source material, please? My googling keeps coming up "Did you mean dakka?"

I'm guessing the OP is thinking of injecting S. M. Stirling's Draka from the Domination of the Draka alt-history series into Infinity Wars. The TV Tropes summary gives one idea of what's involved.

(For what it's worth, my top hits for "Draka" were a fire-resistant cable manufacturer and a World of Warcraft character.)

What Randyman says, particularly if it looks like Draka are about to break out into the multiverse.

As I'm seeing mention of interdimensional travel in the TVTropes page...

Yeah, all three would probably join together to nuke the entire world from orbit. "It's the only way to be sure."

"You know all those weapons we agreed not to use on each other because they break reality a bit too much? Well, we found a place to use 'em!"

Pretty sure the joint effort would go well beyond just glassing Earth there.

I once read a fanfic where the Draka scout from the last book ended up in the setting of Sailor Moon and it's explicitly pointed out that she fails because she's no longer in a universe where "the bad guys win" is a part of the laws of the universe.

There was a shared world anthology where one of the stories crosses over with the crosstime war series of some other author I haven't read. One or the other of the good guy timelines pulls a misinformation operation in the old "let's you and him fight" gambit, to get the Draka fighting the other bad guys org.

Which Draka ? 1900 ? 1950 ? 2100 ? Early Draka might be interesting to Centrum. Late Draka I agree with the "nuke them from orbit" posters.
