Physiology & Environment (Ecology)
It has a thick hide, almost chitin-like in substance. They are somewhat hunched. When rolled up they are totally hidden behind their shell like back, which gives them very good protection. Their appearance is almost insect like, which can scare the hell out of unwary travellers. They are quite small and stocky, but not clumsy, even when they may seem like it.
Even before the Vargr contacted this race, they had acquired tech enough to start a space programme. The first contact with Vargr and Humans accelerated this process. They claim to have developed Jump Drive on their own, but this has not been confirmed. However they are not able to use the jump technology to its fullest, due to the fact that they can’t survive a jump. So in this field they are still TL–9.
But the Ungrest do use unmanned jump launches, which actually are crafts ranging from 100 to 300 tons. These are used to move supplies fast through the system, and to the neighboring system that they have started to colonize. The Ungrest move through interstellar space with STL ships, powered by a ram scoop.
They have twenty-two ram scoop ships which has been in service for more than 400 years. The ships has been updated several times over the centuries. The parts of the ships range from TL–11 to TL–16. But new ships are planned that utilizes Thruster technology and new TL–16 power plants instead of the TL–12 ones. They are expected to enter service from 1121 and onwards.
Psychology & Philosophy (Mindset)
The Ungrest are quite aggressive, but not outright hostile.
Technology & Trade (Economy)
Various merchants do trade with them, but any technology are largely unavailable, when it is much specified for the race. And the Ungrest is unwilling to sell technology to inferior traders. This might stem from a paranoia that they are afraid of that the tech might be turned against them. However it is possible to buy other non-technical stuff like foodstuffs and art.
