Title: Ur-Quan homeworld discovered!

I’m convinced that we’ve finally found the Ur-Quan homeworld (above link). Those caterpillars have the large quantity of sturdy legs required to deal with the extra gravity.

Five times the size of Earth? Oh god, there's going to some bigass monsters running around on there. If not Ur-Quan, at least some Bulrathi.

Haha, thats usually when I click 'Drop All' rather than deal with those annoying bears.

I'd rather place some Yehat living on that planet. Earth-like, and seems the ideal location for a High Perch. Plus, the Yehat homeworld has a rather strong gravity from what I remember.

Nope! It hasn't. It's a small planet with a weak gravity. Oops.

It'd have to be weak gravity as physically, a Yehat couldn't fly on Earth, and with the proportion of their legs to their height, they might need leg bracers to keep them from squating (3 metres is really tall, and although this might mean that the Yehat can extend their necks, the size of their legs are slightly gawky when compared to Humans).

It's good to know that there are other planets with possibility of life, but I think we should look closer. Like Mars, or maybe, just maybe, Pluto...

It's also good to know that they did some research on Birds and such for the Yehat, because it wouldn't be sensible them flying on a planet with more Gravity than our own.

I hope to god you mean planets WE could live on, and not planets that extra-terrestrial life live on.

Why? Any chance of life, similar or different would surely be exciting.

But on Mars and Pluto?

Of course it would be exciting, even if was a few clumps of moss. Don't know if much is going on on Pluto though -  a bit brisk out there.

I'm shocked none of you got the Fwiffo Reference.

I got your reference, but cute as it was I was much more interested in why Grakelin really wanted you to mean worlds we could live on, rather than extra-terrestrial life.

I thought he was talking about aliens living on Mars and Pluto. I understand now.

Though, the Mars bit threw me off.
