Member Name: The Star Nation of Tau Ceti.
Accepted into the Galactic Federation: Almost 2.5 million years ago. Bear-like mammaloids (the original inhabitants) permitted a human colony from the Constellation of Hercules to settle on their system's fourth planet some 2.4 million years ago.
Location: Closest star to Earth in Constellation of Cetus (the Whale).
Distance From Earth: Approximately 11.8 Light Years.
Life Form Type: Sentient inhabitants are a galactic humanoid and a bear-like mammaloid.
Physical Appearance: Galactic humanoids closely resemble humans from Constellation of Hercules. Three major skin colors: brown (including a copper tone), red, and green (light and dark). Brown-skinned humans have light brown to copper-colored hair, or black to red-orange hair. Eyes range from greens and blues to browns and grays. Males are very well-proportioned and 7 feet to 8.5 feet (2.13 to 2.59 meters) tall. Women range from just over 6.5 feet to almost 8 feet (1.98 to 2.40 meters) in height. Green-skinned humans have light green to blonde or brown hair with green, hazel or steel-blue eyes, and are the same relative heights as brown-skinned humans. Red-skinned humans have red, orange or blonde hair with red, brown or dark blue eyes, and are also the same size as the other two types of humans. In all cases, females are quite buxom.
Bear-like mammaloids of Tau Ceti are huge, furry Beings with small furry tails and bear-like bodies covered in brown, black or blonde fur. Heads are bear-shaped but with a smaller muzzle. Teeth resemble those of a galactic human rather than of an Earth bear. Eyes are set forward and, like those of humans, are brown, blue or black. Ears, at the side of the head just above the eyes, resemble those of Earth’s bears. Highly sentient Beings walk on two legs, hence have a higher center of gravity than bears on Earth. Two muscular arms with paw-like hands containing five stubby claw-laden fingers. Very muscular legs end in very short feet with five stubby toes. Range in height from 9 to 12 feet (2.74 to 3.66 meters).
Special Traits and Abilities: Known for their abilities to design some of most advanced ships in Galactic Federation’s exploration fleets. Also considered some of best pilots and navigators in galaxy.
Average Amount of Sleep Needed: Average amount of sleep needed: Both species require only 1 to 2 hours per day.
Language: Human language is very guttural, like German or Arabic. Bear-like Being’s language sounds similar, but is deeper and more guttural.
Mother Ship and Other Craft: Scouts are huge, diamond-shaped, plasma craft about 200 to 250 feet (61 to 76.2 meters) long. Mother ships are usually the command ships of Galactic Federation exploration fleets. They look like a series of multi-layered blood cells in stacks of 20 to 50 cells, and vary from 4 miles to 44 miles (6.44 to 70.84 kilometers) in diameter.
