Description (Specifications)[edit]

Biofacts are evidence of intelligent activity, usually of sophonts or protosophonts, but some intelligent creatures might also leave behind biofacts in the environment.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A famous Terran example of biofacts is the Elephant Graveyard, a place where an ancient Terran species invariably goes to die, depositing large numbers of bones behind. Some scientists consider elephants to be protosophonts.
