you think this massive setting needs some setup? don’t even know what a Minot looks like? too bad! like i would reveal such secrets
it’s hard to know where to start with “communist space animals are good to each other for hundreds of thousands of years” so i started with the time a couple cows and a squid took up arms against a hivemind that keeps livestock
the secret of this setting is that everything has an extremely low-effort name indicating its corresponding earth-creature. you think "auters? couldn't possibly just be otters" but they are just otters, with advanced space tech
only the dabulans don't have a name indicating their squidhood. instead their name comes straight from a randomly-generated stellaris species. yes this entire project is a collaborative stellaris fic, why do you ask,,
this is a smart plan that cannot fail. you are the winner. you win
