Home system of the Len, a biologically-advanced species with attributes of collective consciousness. Individual Len are miniscule and fairly unintelligent. They can, however, join together (both physically and mentally) in groups (or collectives) of 1,000 to 10,000 Len to produce a larger, more intelligent organism. The lifespan of any single Len is fairly short, typically just a few months, and few collectives last more than a year. This short lifespan made the transfer of knowledge between generations very difficult before the evolution of a specialized sub-species of Len. These Len, typically a few times larger than the "regular" sub-species, consist almost entirely of neural tissue and life for several hundred years, maintaining the lon ...
A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia. Just as Wikipedia allows to edit articles, Galaxiki allows to edit stars, planets and moons. In fact you may consider each object in our science fiction galaxy to be one editable article:
One of the most interesting points is that your work doesn't have to be isolated. In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
