Remarks

Native Sophont Species: Akeed

The Akeed themselves feed on minerals drawn directly from soil and water, and appear to be as happy living under the water as on the land.

  • Though human contact with the Akeed occurs only on land or in space, it is believed that the race has an extensive marine culture. The extent of this culture, its tech level, and other accomplishments are unknown.
  • The population of the Akeed is unknown, and their law and government systems are largely unintelligible to human observers.
  • Their tech level, based on observations of their ship technology and electronics, is generally set at ten (A).
  • They possess Jump-drive ships, but acquired them from humans early in the sector's history.
