Exploration Corps Universe - Nimrithi Starships



THE NIMRITHI

The Nimrithi are sentient undersea creatures that vaguely resemble an octopus. Thye have four main limbs that divide into two smaller limbs each.  They are water breathers and have male and female sexes.  The typical lifetime of a Nimrithi is around 100 years.  They Evolved in shallow waters along the coastline of their homeworld's oceans.  They are very human-like in their curiosity and emotional range and the closest star-faring sentient species to Humanity.  It took centuries for Humans and Nimrithi to learn to trust each other, but they eventually joined forces to explore the galaxy together using Tech Level 7 star-faring technology.  Starships "Depths of Dream" and "Dawn of Discovery" are joint Human-Nimrithi designs.  This sentient species is inspired by the aliens depicted in the 1944 short story Arena by science fiction author Fredric Brown.
