Ah, I see.

Well, compared to most species, the Riether are slightly lagging behind in the medicinal department. However, physicians are much more up to date, if not ahead of the galactic standard. They usually only have small, non-government run hospitals, with the doctor(s) only really making house calls. These places are few and far between, with only military workers getting frequent checkups, since the military employs physicians for fleets and other things, like space stations, etc.. Since most bacteria and viruses can't survive in the sweltering heat in the underground, with only the deadliest surviving, it's not unusual for a wave of "sniffles" to sweep through ships after landing parties contract more simple contagions from the planet. In fact, the Riether would probably do better with the Black Plague then the common cold.

Research is ongoing in combating the White Plague, though so far, all they've managed to do is prolong the suffering.

Aw, that's sad. It reminds me of all those epidemics over the course of human history. I shudder to think of them.

I just realized that the Riether would despise the color white. The white plague and all...

BREET! BREET! Ultra-nitpick alert!
White isn't a color. It's a shade.

What really is the White Plague? Did I miss something in an earlier post?

MOAR EYECANDY:

What you can do if you REALLY like DoGA

Zarakazan Drydock facility. Used to construct and service Dzarnon class cruisers. Since the Riether military only consists of one fighter class, one bomber class, one cruiser, and one command ship, these speceilized dydocks are very common. They are floated to any uninhabited planet Brithora happens to be passing near, and mining vehicles bring metal up to the station. When Brithora moves too far away, the drydocks are moved to the next planet, usually leaving the ground facility behind.

Weapons:

Riether prefer old-fashioned swords and the like over anything, this including their wrists. Though, typically, they are pressed into situations where ranged weapons are needed, so they use guns. nothing special, just plasma as per usual. They also, however, use solenium bombs and grenades. The solenium is suspended in a capsule via a magnetic field, which also makes it highly reactive. when the bomb contacts an object, the force makes the solenium jostle around and contact the inner capsule. This makes a rather very large explosion. Solenium can hold its reactivity for a while even after the magnetic field is taken away. As a last resrt, Riether ships can jettison the solenium driver rods, and when those huge things contact a ship or two, all heck breaks loose.

Rule #1: NEVER FOLLOW A CRITICALLY DAMAGED RIETHER SHIP, you will die.

Why thank you  :D

DoGA is a 3d modeling program that uses pre made parts which can be stretched around (Like the spore creator) to make ships, tanks, robots, etc. It also includes a (far too) simple animation function.
