Much better start than the first contest winner announcement thanks for the turn around guys!
A better turn around cause NO ONE feels cheated. anyways congratz man great read it was more like a starfleet report rather then a story that is really in-depth, an STO should use it as a back drop to one of the races in the game i think i'd even play 1 well gratz again man an be sure to smash them bugs out for the rest of us
The main reason for this is that there natural habitat is at 0.25 G.
I thought after I posted my comments that they must come from a very low gravity world (assuming that's feasibly habitable as life is developing), as you say, the word limit prevented you from going into detail on that. Poor buggers would have to wear those g-suits whenever they are in any terran-standard environment tho (bless em)
