A radially symetrical (three-legged , three-armed , three-eyed) , four meter tall reptile-like race, they once ruled a globe of space one hundred parsecs in radius, some three thousand parsecs from this present position. Highly intelligent, with a number of major technological triumphs, they were almost totally exterminated in an interspecies war several centuries after the loss of the research station.
Born from eggs in large breeders, they had throughout their history been raised by all members of their clan, tribe, city, state, nation or, in their leap into interstellar space, species. They felt that the individual was unimportant, so long as the group survived, and so they fought rear-guard actions with a ferocity seldom matched by sentient races. Such individuals would be incapable of surrender or retreat, and will NEVER check morale.
Very xenophobic,they always tended to fire upon aliens first, and investigate later. This is what led, finally, to their destruction, as three species combined to destroy their population centers.
These creatures evolved in jungles, similar to those found on Earth in the Age of Reptiles. Somewhat capable of maintaining a stable internal body temperature (except below 15°C. and above 60°C.), their favorite pastime was to lay out upon a flat rock, sunning themselves.
The major reasons for their rabid xenophobia were formulated during their evolutionary wars with primitive mammals. In the case of the Dra'k'ne, the reptilian race was the victor, and so evolved a civilization that was feared throughout its star cluster.
The conditions on the Dralklne home planet (and several of their "terraformed" colonies) may be described by the Planetary Characteristics Profile A697A99-B (there is a technological discrepancy in that they have learned from an older, conquered race the creation and use of antimatter as a ship-board, short-range weapon).
Dra'k'necan live to age 130 as an average, with 200 not unknown.
Dralk'ne names are constructed as follows. The first portion (using our Scout Boat pilot, Freg'sh'ne, it is Freg) is a personal name. The second portion ("sh") indicates breeder clan name. Finally, the last portion ("ne") is the "nationality" of the being. The "ne" are dominant politically and are in control of all major ship and technical functions. All Security functions are ordered and carried out by "ne." Other subordinate nations and races exist, notably the "ti" and the "go.
