In practice, Jovionoids are flyers or floaters and breathe hydrogen or hydrogen compounds with alternate biochemistries. Jovionoid civilizations are sometimes called "Hydrogen Societies."
It is known that conventional lifeforms to develop very similar biologies, physiologies, and appearances to jovionoids and develop on terrestrial worlds. These are usually cases of parallel evolution.
- Two Jgd-ll-jagd, a long-lived hydrogen species.
- The Domination, an aggressive, threatening race of hydrogen species.
Jovionoid in Charted space
Jovionoid Lifeforms are still considered rare within Charted Space. There are numerous reports that jovionoids is much more common outside of Charted Space. The relative rarity of Jovian creatures within Charted space is usually assigned to relatively rare requirements to interact. It is thought that a comprehensive program to search for Hydrogen-breathing Jovionoid life would turn up many other such species, and that while many of them would be primitive pre-spacefaring civilizations
