I have never seen an Avenger, but I think that I will soon. I wonder how it stacks up against a Spire DN.
Depends on the range.  Avengers have a lot more of it.  But if the DN is waiting on the other side of the wormhole when the Avenger comes through it's a much fairer fight.  I don't think I've ever seen that in 1v1 though.  The DN always has friends, and it doesn't go well for the Avenger.

And...now that I finally have enough resources, I've found a use for the Counterspy. Its great to clear those worlds that have 4 cloaked AI ships lurking about :)
The military command station mkIII would probably handle it too ;)

It is well worth the price of admission. It's an amazing boss event. I'm hoping that future expansions will continue to add these kinds of encounters.

With the Fallen Spire option, I assure you there are greater threats the AI can send you. Ship(s) that can send at least 3 avengers crying to their programmer about obsolescence.
Life is short. Have fun.

...I know..it was a recommendation to the poster's curiosity.
