Extraterrestial Sapients

Post by Zor » Fri Apr 30, 2010 2:31 am

Introduction

Across the Terran Sphere, a suprisingly large number of worlds have been found to support carbon based alien life. Of these planets, over 90% of them have native life no more complex than microbes. Among those which do, a small fraction possesses intelligent life, so far, twenty one species of sapient creatures have been discovered (along with thirty six near sapient species, several of which have been uplifted). Of these species, seven of them have developed rudementary civilization, the two most advanced of which had technologically advanced areas at an early iron age level comprable to that of mediterranian basin or china as of the 25th century BT upon their discovery by Terragen colonization fleets. Three species of extraterrestial sapients were tragically exterminated by Terragen settlers since the dawn of the Intersteller age, although now the Treaty of Sol forbids such activity. A few colonies have been established by extraterrestials since Terrans have arrived on the scene, praticularly in the last three centuries, but such activity has not changed the fact that extraterrestials are a small minority in the Terran Sphere's population behind genmods and sapient artificial intelligences.

This thread existst as a catalouge to some of these species.
