The Cerapa-Krenomis

Cerapa-Krenomis

(credits to Gauphastus for the picture)

The Cerapa-Krenomis(also called just Cer) are an insectoid race(common drone pictured above) that have a queen similarly to ants. They are however a mix of organic(Cerapa) and inorganic life(Krenomis). And are called by their different names when talking about a part of them. They live mostly underground and need a magnetic field to live.

Cerapa

The Cerapa is the organic counterpart. They heavily use metals in the construction of their bones and nervous system. Due to of that they are extremely heavy. They have an endoskeleton all across their body to support that weight and have an exoskeleton in most parts for protection. Before they learned to mine they had to hunt a local creature called a Greller, for its metal.

Krenomis

(The Krenomis under a microscope)

The Krenomis are are semi-crystal beings. Their state is easily changed between energy and crystals and appear to be partly phased out into another dimension. They are capable of transforming other other forms of energy into their own. They are however very unstable and require matter to be within and can only be supported by metals. They are in full control over their own magnetic fields and can use it to propel themselves. By communicating they can get huge amounts of processing power.

Solar system

(The inner solar system)
The solar system is quite unstable. Occasionally powerful "hyperspace storms" show up. They are odd events that create a lens effect in hyperspace causing entire ships to be torn apart when hyperspace based FTL travel is used. They also have odd effects on Kerapa and are blamed on a giant ancient omega-drive withing the core of the sun.

Endok
Endok is the solar systems sun. Its orbited by numerous solar powered satellites that monitor its state.

Mar
Mar is the closest planet to the sun and the hottest. It is fully colonized by Cer. The colony started as a small station to watch over the satellites.

Arkad
Arkad is the homeworld of the Cer. It has a very powerful magnetic field and a relatively low gravity. The planet is rich with metals and water. It is almost fully a giant city with small biospheres for food production. It also houses an omega-drive in its core to counter the effects of the o-drive in the sun.

Gerra
Is a gas giant, consisting mostly of hydrogen and is believed to have been pulled off Endok by another star

Korai
Korai means hell in their language. The planet has powerful earthquakes regularly and due to of its proximity to Corra it is constantly bombarded by meteors. Its is extremely cold. Altough its extremely rich composition is tempting, it only houses an unmanned surveillance post as full mining operations could cost lives.

Corra asteroid belt
The Corra belt surrounds the whole inner solar system. It is so thick that it keeps all of the light in and out. It is highly prized for its minerals and because it effectively cloaks the entire solar system.

Thanks Yuu.

Now, technology time!

Technology
Their technology is divided into 3 groups

Alpha class
Alpha class is the least advanced technologies. Under it goes scissors, light bulbs, forks, and other stuff like that.

Delta class
Delta class is more advanced.  Spaceships, vehicles, sub-light engines and stuff like that go under it.

Omega class

(Left: Hyperspace storm that has manifested itself in the atmosphere and caused tremendous current. Right: An operating Omega-Drive)

Omega technology is the most advanced technology of the Cer. It simulates the effects of a hyperspace storm, and the energy structure of the Krenom.
It is capable of phasing something partly to another universe, bending light, FTL communications and travel and much, much more.

                  Omega-Drive

The Omega-Drive is the single part of omega technology, the rest are simply modifications and limiters. An O-Drive with enough power has been seen
to cause hyperspace storms, reverting matter back into hydrogen, creating odd black holes that only pull matter into themselves when touched directly
and are not in any way affected by gravity, warp matter across a solar system, knock out other O-Drives, stop time in a small effected radius,
cause the full crystallisation of Kerapa and of course the usual nuclear explosion.

Experimentation with the O-Drive are done only in space and under extremely tight security conditions. The allowed energy to give an O-Drive is extremely limited.
The experimentation of the O-Drive have been in such tight conditions after the omega incident(more on that later propably).

          FTL communications

The FTL communications work by sending a message through a small O-Drive . The result is that the message is sent to another universe, where stuff moves much faster.
Another fine-tuned O-Drive translates the message back to this universe and the message can be recieved.

          FTL travel

FTL travel works similarly to communications. The ship however is not fully sent to another universe but instead partly phased out. The O-Drive responsible for this must
be extremely fine-tuned, so it would only effect the speed of the ship.

           The Time Core


The time core is the newest in omega technology. It partly phases out energy and causes it to act according to the speed of time in another universe. If properly
monitored the time core reveals the difference between their universe and anothers(where up to their knowledge nothing exists) speed of time. This is useful
as it could reveal if they are under the effects an Omega-Drive.

Ships

           Kelnor


The Kelnor freighter is pretty large ship. Usually used in transport but can be outfitted with heavy weaponry and serve as a carrier for Foraur fighters.
It is capable FTL speeds and has large missile bays(direct result of their asteroid mining techniques). It has been cleared as being too large to avoid
hyperspace storms and carries an O-Drive that is used to repel them.

           Faoraur


The Foraur are of fighter class. They have very high maneuverability and speed(altough it doesnt have an FTL drive). They are usually carried by Kelnors.
After the Great War(history next propably) they have been low on use and are used on scouting missions. They can easily avoid hyperspace storms and
do not carry O-Drives of any kind.

              Dekrad


The Dekrad is a scout, about half the size of a fighter, completely guided by Kor. It is the smallest ship capable of FTL travel. It lacks any weaponry,
but houses 8 TB-1s(look at droids). It has a large energy storage, even for Cer ships.
Since most trips are one way(no way to get energy), their failsafes are modified so they can use it to completely melt the ship, thus destroying
any technology that could be plundered. The self destruct has a different energy storage than the main one, so it can be triggered even with no power in the main.

History

           The Awakening

The awakening was the time during which the first ones were merged and the Cer were born.
There were several wars between the hives on the planet as it was thought to be a plague
and had to be destroyed. The wars always ended with the victory of the Cer. They started
counting years after that.

           The Great War

The Great War was a 1500 years after the Awakening.  The more power hungry hives fought
while the peaceful ones advanced scientifically. Soon 2 alliances ruled the planet. Thats
when the Great War erupted. The peaceful ones had much greater technology but they
didnt use it as it could damage the planet. The power hungry one did one wrong move.
They sniped off a few queens. The drones did not become unable to do anything as
expected. The remaining drones attacked with full force. Half the planet was turned into
a lifeless desert and an ice age went over the entire planet. A great amount of knowledge
was lost and the level of technology was reached a 1000 years later.

           The Omega Incident

The Omega Incident is the biggest accident ever done by scientific experiments(the 2 biggest ripped 5 Kelnors in half).
It happened with the first experiments with O-Drives. The drive was attached directly to the power grid. When it was
activated it sucked all the power out of the power grid and caused a gigantic explosion that caused time to change speed.
It ripped a city in half and caused thousands of hyperspace storms around the planet. Hadnt the generators not exploded
at that moment, it would have set off a chain reaction that would have caused the planet to explode.

A little history!

Groups

The Cer society is splitted into many groups, each having their own queens, their own beliefs, and their own
role in furthering the race. All groups have evolved a little differently. There are 3 main groups and a few smaller
ones in them.

      The Ha'rem

The Harem are responsible for the military, transport(notice their signs on the ships?) and mining operations.
Most ships are their property and transport vessels. They are the oldest of the groups. As of currently they
control the most vessels and land.

          The Scion



The Scion are responsible for building operations and the production of materials. They are the most of the
population and are refered to as common drones. They are the usually sole owners of motherships since
they are the only ones authorized to produce at such numbers.

          The Duals


The Duals are responsible for science. They are the least in numbers and property but are considered the elite
in society. They can get all the materials they need for research. Their ships are equipped with the best
equipment around. This job is considered the most dangerous place to be, as the Kerapa are impossible to kill
by normal mean(shooting at it) and O-Drives are capable of turning them into a big green crystal.

It would probably be quite nice to be a Dual. The raw resources of the entire species all at your disposal. :)

Love them all! 8) Great work, madis! :)

That is freaking awesome!  :D

Now some more stuff.

Misc
                                    AIs

The thing about AIs for the Cer is that they are considered normal citizens. They are even
valued above normal life(the Krenom dont go under normal) due to of their immortality.

               Kor

(the Kor sign)

Kor is the communications network of the Cer and an AI. It tracks everything
from the condition of an individual to the inner working of the sun. Although genderless
it is considered female, due to of its "queen status" to other AIs.

                    Primary



Primary is the flagship of the Cer fleet. It is an AI and considers Kor as it queen.
It is gigantic and is owned by all groups. It is the most powerful ship the Cer
have, and could easily take out 2/3 of all the ships in the Cer fleet.

                 The Dark One


The Dark One is the most evil being in the Cer society. It would propably start a
revolution if it werent for Kor. It is currently the only ship with a cloaking device.
It can easily snipe off ships and is extremely agile. It is almost the same strength
as Primary, if you count in speed. It is also the smallest ship with an FTL drive.

                                                Droids


                   Forkai


Forkai is a small combat droid that is cabable of moving in an atmosphere and space.
They are weak but easy to produce. They are usually controlled by Kor but can be
controlled manually or by Primary or The Dark One(by him, extremely rarely). They
are mostly owned by the Scion, since they control motherships.

                  TB-1


The TB-1 droid is about the size of a human hand. Its general purpose is looking
where a scout cant see. It has a speaker and a screen, to be able to communicate.
It draws its power from the scout, and can stay active for quite a long time.

                                    Really big buildings

                 The Hole

(a small part of the hole)

The Hole is a tunnel leading through the thick sphere of meteors surrounding the solar
system that blocks out the light of the sun to the outside, called Corra. A tunnel was needed
to get through it. It was made exactly so big that primary could get through it.

Some facts about Cer electronics.

                          Electronics

A certain fact about warfare with the Cer is that EMPs are absolutely useless.
The amount of EMPs(one in a minute) in their solar system has made them completely immune.
They dont even consider it as a weapon because its normal to them.

In fact, they use it as their only power source. They lack any other power
generator technology. They harvest the energy spike in powerful capacitors.
Sometimes that is not enough to avoid an overload. Every ship is equipped with a failsafe.
When needed, a ball of metal will be heated with the excess energy
causing it to turn into an extremely hot ball of plasma. The ball is
then thrown out.

Im making weaponry next. And seriously, tell me what you want to know.

Harnessing EMPs? Very creative, but is that even possible? ???
