Uplifting: Monkeying Around With Genetics

1. Two basic types.

2. The small ones are harder to hit, and the bigger ones are natural born athletes.

3. Both can hear and smell better, as well as bonus to strength and endurance.

4. Socially deprived.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Starships: Commercial Vessel Vigilant Magnate 1. I have no clue as to who operates this starship. 2. Looks like a one off design. 3. Technology level fourteen may indicate Confederation. 4.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Spaceships: Vegan Interface Transport 1. Sixty, one hundred twenty and two hundred tonne pattern smallcrafts; maybe not that small. 2. If I understand this correctly, you can using customized recess space and hull rails, sort of makes it a pseudo breakaway hull at five percent additional tonnage. 3...
