An Okkar ship

The Okkar are a reptilian race inhabiting several systems in Cluster 34. A bipedal, lizard-like species, they evolved from their dry desert homeworld and spread some millenia ago to neighboring planets. They are a secretive race, telepathic to a limited degree, and have a natural aversion to water. Not known for ambitious expansionism, they are generally peaceful and inward-looking, although violently reactive to new influences from beyond their own worlds. The arrival of the Colonials in the early 31st century triggered a panic which led to a devastating conflict.

A long life-span (up to 250 Sol years) and stable social conditions have allowed for significant development of technologies and culture on a par to human advancement. In the course of Colonial expansion, the Okkar are the first encountered alien race to be equally matched in strength and sophistication.
