Q'uekzarz Race--A Brief Overview

The origins of the Q'uekzarz is mostly shrouded in mystery. Being one the most ancient species (according to the Confederate Archives) to have traveled and colonized the known Universe, much of it's history spans billions of years. Most of which has been forgotten even by the oldest remaining members.

What is known however is quite telling.

Physical Appearance

Details Unknown

There are no recorded photographs, digital imprints and DNA samples available to reconstruct what a Q'uekzarz would have looked like during their prime light cycles and as dominant species in the Universe.

It is speculated that they may have looked somewhat like present day Humans, since their home planets were very alike in composition and atmosphere.

A recorded interview with a Q'uekzarian historian reveals the following:


Q'uekzarz would have been very human like, with the exeption of mechanical enhancements. It did not take them long to realize that relying on basic nature in order to survive would lead to extinction. The first goal of Q'uekzarian bio-mechanical research involved eliminating the aging process. Their typical lifespan was about 200 years. This was far too short in a society that prided itself on knowledge and technological advancement, instead of power and domination.

They enventually found the solution, which which involved creating artificial peptites and technological implants that stimulated cell regeneration.

The technology to accomplish such a feat has been lost for millions of years. Texts in the Archives suggest they would have not aged physically passed the human equivalent of 30.

Currently all remaining members have mostly opted out of their original forms to adopt bio-mechical suits known as "watchers". It allows them to communicate with all biological and mechanical entities.

Among other things it also has the ability to manipulate matter and create life forms for a limited duration to help with such things as repairs, combat or technological enhancement.



Belief And Societal Structure

Q'uekzarian society was discussed with the highest of respects among most prominant scholars during their peak. It was seem almost as a Utopia. The entire society was founded on governed by a sense of responsibility to help further progress.

All research and development was centered around improving quality of life and creating advance technologies to terra-form and sustain life on otherwise un-inhabitable planets.

There was no prevelant religious belief system. They did not pretend to know where everything came from, but they were very self aware and spiritual. Upon reaching what we would call "Ascension" a Q'eukzar was able to free himself from his material body and operate entirely as a being of light.

This could not be done all the time, as it required great mental focus and sustained levels of energy. The ability was used mostly to understand the inner workings of the universe in order to better formulate theories and technologies for space/time travel.

Influence of Galactic Civlization

Q'uekzarz's were very intrigued by other races and enjoyed studying them greatly. Being one of the first to develop space travel, they were also some of the first to document and chart maps of star sytems, races and entire Galaxies.

The was only two rules. Never to dominate another species. Never interfere with it's natural evolution. The primary government system was Republic with laws made by society. The specifics are not all clear but it seems they allowed only "Ascended" members in places of advanced leardership.

After the galactic alignment that devasted most of their culture and planets, the remaining members went into hiding, fearing a take over by rival civilizations who longed for their "watchers" technology and comprehensive archives.

Current Status

At the present time the archives have only one recorded member listed as active. A "Ascended" member known only as Adilaris who is currently on assignment with the SS Yydryl.

Further information has been removed from the Archives and placed at Level 0 Classified status.

Please by all means feel free to post that in My Yydryl thread. I'm hoping to have it eventually become a compilation suitable for anyone writing in the main thread (or for the readers as well).


In other words, I like a great deal!

Edit to add: Just noticed that you added the Species info. Thank for contributing to it.

::wink:: Just remember in the actual story, none aboard the Yydryl even know Whisper is 'missing' yet and will have no way of knowing where she went or when. Just *poof*

Thus my 'mysteriousness' in the working thread as well.


Edit to add: Thank you Silo for the beautiful picture of Whisper. Simply Beautiful and appreciated!

Did a little work on the Carbine for the Yydryl crew based on the pistol concept. I've made the mixing chamber a little bit larger, added a fore grip (like the bull pup) so that either types can use it effectively.

Same stats pretty much as the pistol but a bit more penetration. Assuming that this passes inspection, I'll work on the rifle next.

It will have to wait until later when I get home from work, plus I have to catch up to story. OK?

"Abernathy was fresh out of the cadidiot factory and, in Badgers opinion, an anal retentive over achiever. He was way too happy with his job. "

Funny!

I hope you don't mind that I moved the "bar" scene in the brig. But I figured escaping and getting there would be too difficult.

But I've got something planned for this team and I needed them to escape.

Don't worry I'll try to keep my posts shorter after this one and I now have a plan to do it. (More will be revealed soon.)

About the post.

The "You can't handle the truth!" scene from A Few Good Men has been modified and used.

Studious that was a great post!

Tied things in very well.

I know I am new to the crew but i've been reading up on the story, very well done on your part.

I don't think Adilaris is going to like you however lol

You seem a bit too brash to him
.

ohh don't worry about it, I can't be upset, I just got here lol
