Looks like we're going for race outlines anyway- not a problem, it would've happened at some point. While we're at it, we may as well open up for descriptions of the 3 humanoid races too.

Here's a races recap:

So 5 non-humanoid and 3 humanoid still awaiting their creation.
(BTW- Whales, stingrays, squids & snails- I'm detecting a distinctly marine bent here...)

I don't think there's any contradiction there, so they can both stand as is.

question: How do people get their goods out of gravity wells?
Question: We know that there is a 'primo' hyper drive, but is what kinds of 'secret' navigational or rutter programs and databases exist to take advantage of improvements in distance and accuracy?

ETA: Ninja'd with another race.
