The Omniship is a Drej ship from Titan AE.

When a piece of high technology is stolen, the Doctor discovers the consequences of letting the If run free. Meanwhile Dari finds herself trapped in the middle of a power struggle. But which will win out? Instinct or evolution? - The original blurb

Originally shown between January and February 2003.
When the entire AFT site was taken down in early 2007, this is one of the stories that wasn't reposted. It returned to the site on 23 November 2011.

Evolution was originally a toy video and was partly filmed, though none of the footage exists anymore. That version featured the Tetraps and the vain attempts of their leader to undo genetic damage done by the Rani. The Tetrap leader Urkar had a conversation with Dari about the former Tetrap civilisation and their art which was beyond the comprehension of “two-eyed beings”

When it came to making the If arc, Evolution was the perfect story- a race of people who's past had been damaged by the intervention of the If though admitedly the humanoid 'vampires' aren't the most inspiring of monsters.

This story features the first appearance of the TARDIS console as it appeared in the TV Movie.
The Zythmr beam bears a striking resemblance to Magnus Greels distillation machine. But the similarity stops there.

This was the first AFT story to use layers in photoshop. Up til that point everything had to be edited once with no margin for error.
Layers allowed for better special effects such as the ocean ripple effect as the Omniship disburses and as the vampires turn off their stolen holonet.

The vampires’ next target is Pyro Shaika. This planet featured in a ‘make your own adventure’ novel by Pip and Jane Baker called “The Race Against Time” which featured the Rani. Pyro Shaika was mentioned by the Doctor in Terror of the Vervoids
