    I've not seen the Chosen and Rulers on the same mission. But then I used the Integrate DLC option which means they first spawn on facility missions instead of the story mission that unlocks them.

    (I think the Assassin is the best one to take out first, she's the one with no counterplay when she shows up)

    I'm a real cautious player, so I only go after the chosen once they've got a full meter on me. In this game it's Warlock>Assassin>Hunter, one month between each.
    The name is "tonberrian", even when it begins a sentence. It's magic, I ain't gotta 'splain why.

Mind you, I guess I wouldn't have had enough influence to really do well there anyway, and while that start gives you the "Scion" casus beli on all other empires, using that just causes the other empire to become a scion of your overlord--you don't gain anything from it personally.
    Scion is like easy mode for new players. Where you don't focus on the micromanagement of your empire and just go and war against everyone in sight. I thought it was going to be where you are biding your time to break free from your Fallen Empire Overlord, get a few negative value by being subservient to them while getting the value of Fallen Empire protection as well as a science boost, but it turns out to be just 100% positive and overpowered.

    This one lasted about 15 months. Wagers on how long the new thread will last?

    Well, you can't actually win the game as a scion without taking out your overlord, so there's that, and supporting a 5.4k fleet in 2201 takes a little bit of effort--I don't think it's quite as easy mode as you're saying it is. Nonetheless, I definitely messed it up by doing my usual "turtle up and see where I end up after a few decades" start, it really needs you to be aggressive early doors.
