My first creature: The Fr'on
« on: July 13, 2006, 03:09:52 pm »
The Fr'on:
The Fr'on are a race of sapient social insects that have space travel capabilities but have not left their solar system... yet.

Size:
Fr'onians are 3.5 ft long and 2 ft tall.
Intelligence:
A massive majority of Fr'onians only have the most basic sense of self-awareness(. Upon hatching a Fr'onian has a secondary brain that contains all their instincts and all the knowledge of their mother. At this point the primary brain is underdeveloped and they are controlled by pure instinct.
Society:
All Fr'onians are naturally loyal to the most self-aware Fr'onian available, however if any directive given would harm the colony without benefiting the species as a whole, or have a negative impact on the species survivability the leader will be killed and fed to the young.
Diet:
The Fr'on are omnivorous ,but prefer vegetation after maturing.
Life cycle:
They are mature after 1 month.
After maturing females will begin a cycle of laying an egg cluster every 3 months.
An egg cluster contains between 10 and 20 individual eggs, but until becoming civilized only 7% survived, that take 2 months to hatch.
The eggs will only develop between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit but can survive extremes.
Most Fr'onians live approximately 4 years.
Construction:
Fr'onians make heavy use of advanced ceramics in everything they build.
They have an equivalent to our electrical systems based on light and fiber optics due to lack of metals.
Location:
System description : 4 planets. The innermost 2 are actually binary planets that orbit around a point between them. The next is still quite close to the star. The last planet is very far from the star.
The first and second : Both are extremely similar, have no moons, are extremely hot, have no atmospheres, and are incapable of supporting Fr'onian life.
The third : This small planet has two moons and is slowly spiraling closer to the sun. The planet's surface has very high scandium and silicon contents that have been found to produce brilliant electrical storms on its light side and it's atmosphere to thin to support life. The moons have a similar composition and parts of them seem to have large pockets of argon sealed under a layer of glass that glow during electrical storms.
The fourth : The most unusual planet in the system has a single moon, the home of the Fr'on, and is located many time farther from the sun than any other major object. It is a large "liquid giant" that should, based on all available information, either be completely solid or a ring around the star, similar to an asteroid belt. It has been theorized that it has a heavy metal core ,but this is unlikely because there are only very small amounts in the entire system. This planet is also uninhabitable by Fr'onian standards.
Home : :=:more to come:=:

Technology:
Drones : Due to their less than dexterous arms and hands (coming from the rear) the Fr'on have consistently produced and advanced their automation systems, currently AI drones are the most common.
AI : Each Fr'onian AI system consists of 3 separate AI modules. The 1st is an sophisticated purpose specific module that controls its basic functions. The 2nd is less powerful and is shared among a group of similar systems, these allow them to work as teams. The 3rd is an even simpler AI whose sole purpose is to prevent the first 2 modules from doing things that would cause unnecessary harm to the colony.
Ships : All Fr'on space vessels are piloted by an AI system and very few are capable of carrying a mature individual due to a serious lack of quality life support.

Thx

Other than their semi-recent use of unmanned drones* to explore the, uninhabitable, inner planets and various plagues and famines they have no interesting history. They have always been the dominant life form as far back as their oldest memories go and due to hereditary knowledge have no written language, and thus nothing that predates those memories.

I would love too... but the Fr'on are already DUP and, for the most part, have no true government
