Member Name: The Arcturian Confederation.
Accepted into the Galactic Federation: Approximately 3.75 million years ago.
Location: The star Arcturus in the Constellation of Bootes.
Distance From Earth: Approximately 36 Light Years.
Life Form Type: A horse-like sentient Being.
Physical Appearance: Arcturians are a highly sentient mammaloid species that closely resemble a horse. The body is rather tall and slender with a somewhat stylized horse’s head. The skin ranges in color from a vanilla shade to a very dark brown. Arcturians possess a mane on the back of the neck and head and an extremely thin tail that is only slightly reminiscent of that of a horse.
The hands end in 4 fingers that are very long, supple and extremely thin. The arms, legs and body have a very muscular appearance. The Arcturian’s eyes are much bigger than those of Earth humans and are either pale blue or dark brown in color. The ears somewhat correspond to those of a horse, but they are smaller and more rounded than those of their earthly counterparts.
In size, Arcturian males range in height from 7 feet to almost 8 feet 6 inches (2.31 to 2.64 meters). Females vary from just below 7 feet to about 8 feet 2 inches (2.11 to 2.49 meters) tall.
Special Traits and Abilities: In the Galactic Federation, Arcturians are noted for their mastery of time (galactic calendars, etcetera) and their exceptional abilities in science and philosophy.
Average Amount of Sleep Needed: Usually 1 to 3 hours daily.
Language: Arcturians speak a tonal language that sounds similar to Chinese or Vietnamese.
Mother Ship and Other Craft: Arcturian ships range from a diving bell-shaped scout ship that varies from about 40 to 75 feet (12.2 to 22.9 meters) in diameter, to a lens-shaped planetary command mother ship that is over 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) in length.
