Description (Specifications)[edit]

Saurians are a sentient reptillianoid species native to Saurus (Spinward Marches 1320).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The dimwitted, stone age Saurians were overlooked by the IISS exploratory teams when the world was first explored. Because of its T-Prime status, the world was opened to outside colonization with great fanfare.
