The Culture universe is a science fiction franchise created by Iain M Banks, and takes its name from the interstellar civilisation that most of the stories are centred around, the Culture. Generally considered to be extremely hard to defeat due to a combination of absurdly fast (AI-controlled) ship reaction times, the ability to attack someone in the normal universe from the safety of hyperspace, and heavy firepower.
