Life in the Mud: Bino Evolutionary History Part I

The very first known ancestor of the Modern Bino lived out its life in the silt at the bottom of rivers around Khuris' Norhern Continent. They used their long flexible probe to feel around in the water for food, and sucked it up. They had no spine yet, but had the beginnings of a heart, stomach, and a rudimentary brain. They were on their way to bigger and better things...

Awesome! ;D It seems I have influenced a newcomer. When you say their archetype is "Religious", do you mean:
A. You don't know that Economic, Religious and Military aren't archetypes, they're only in the Civilization stage.
B. Religious is like Zealot, except not so zealoty.

My money's on B. Still, I like how you gave titles to your evolutionary history like chapters in a book. :) Also, can you draw/request a picture and/or map of Khuris, color your drawings, and tell us how "Bino" is pronounced? Beeno, binno, byno...Hmmm... ???

I remember the humble beginnings of the Perrachi. I do believe this will turn out to be like them: Extremely detailed and high-quality! ;D

The Alkera (al-KAIR-uh) System:

The Alkera star system is very complex, with a massive main star Akra (ahk-RAH), and a secondary , main sequence star named Dyka (DYE-kah).
Another main sequence orbits the "main" Alkera system hundreds of AUs away, with three small stars orbiting that. Bino months are determined by the position of these stars. In fact, Alkera means clockwork in Bino.

Akra
Size: 67% of Rigel
Age: 150 million Earth years (50 million years left)
Radiation Levels: Medium
Other Notable Features: It is large and old for it's size, it has already begun to die.

Korolon (KORŌ-lawn)

Size: 92% of Jupiter
Habitability: unhabitable
Order From Sun: first planet
Distance From Sun: 25 AU
Moons: 48 as of yet unnamed moons
Atmosphere: Hydrogen-Oxygen
Length of Day: About 10 Earth hours
Length of Year: About 6300 Earth days
Core: solid
Atmosphere: A blueish color caused by hydrogen
Coordinates: B,2 Galactic Starmap Coordinates
Other Notable Features: Korolon's orbit is 1/4 slower than Khuris' orbit, so every time Akra, Korolon, and Khuris align, Korolon largely blots out the light and heat reaching Khuris. This causes a very cold, short term winter. There is a space program in progress, attempting establish a base within Korolon's atmospherefor research.

Khuris

Size: 87% of Earth
Habitability:Depends
Order From Sun: Second planet
Distance From Sun: 60 AU
Moons: Two moons, Myeah (my-YAY-ah) and Krista (KREE-stuh)
Atmosphere: Hydrogen-Oxygen
Land-Water Percentage: 38% land, 62% water
Length of Day: About 40 Earth hours
Length of Year: About 1825 Earth days
Core: Molten Iron
Continents: 1
Oceans: Very deep-blue water, caused by large cobalt depostis abundant around the planet
Valueable Minerals: Cobalt, copper, Azurite, gold, large deposits of iron
Coordinates: UNKNOWN
Other Notable Features:Khuris is so tropical looking because of the plantlife's high reproduction rate, preparing for the winter caused by Korolon.

More added later

UFO King, all the stuff about their civilization will be revealed after the evolutionary history is done (It won't be long, I have all the sketches,
just need to write the history that goes with it.)I'll post PartII tomorrow.

A hollow core? A hollow core? No offense, but that's a geological impossibility! A planet can't have a hollow core or it would collapse to fill the hollowness! You really need to rethink that. Also, the planet must have an molten or rocky core with iron, nickel and tin deposits to create a magnetic field to protect the planet from harmful solar radiation.

Otherwise, the planet and system are really thought out and well developed. When you say hydrogen-oxygen, do you mean to say that or do you mean to say it's atmosphere is like Earth's? Earth's atmosphere is nitrogen-oxygen, by the way. I assume the planet is tropical or something similar because I don't see any deserts. Also, who did the picture?

Massive holes like that would cause massive collapses.

Ahh, forget it...
The idea came from Star wars, Naboo's core was hollow, and filled with water.
Would that work? I'm feeling very stupid right about now...

Water could work, although the heat would evaporate it.

We could if you changed the core to molten or rocky and made the planet itself smaller than Earth to compensate for the lower gravity. Speaking of small planets, we haven't had many of those lately.

Climbing up the food chain: Gen II
Skip ahead a bit, and you get this:

To swim, the small skirt around the earlier Bino deneloped into individual fins. They also developed primitive eyes to dedect the ultraviolet light reflected from the plants they eat. The increased size to hold their newly developed brain came with another advantage, they were too large fore most predators to attack and kill threm.

First in a while to actually have been drawn rather then created by the Spore creators.
