Member Name: The Procyon star-nations.
Accepted into the Galactic Federation: Some 3.5 million years ago. Initially settled over 3.8 million years ago by colonists from Sirius-B, as well as by Amphiboid-Reptoid hybrids fleeing galactic wars in the Constellation of Cancer.
Location: Just above the star Sirius in the evening sky. The brightest star in the Constellation of Canis Minoris, Procyon is a binary star with only the inner, or A, star having inhabitable planets. The Procyon-A star system consists of six relatively small planets. The human colony occupies the fourth planet, while the Amphiboid-Reptoid colonies are located on the second and third planets from the star.
Distance From Earth: About 11.4 Light Years from Earth.
Life Form Type: Two types of sentient Beings. The first is a pure Lyran-Sirian humanoid type. As on Sirius-B, they are either blue- or white-skinned and are fully conscious. Amphiboid-Reptoid hybrids are slightly taller than humanoids and have green-, brown- or blue-colored skins.
Physical Appearance: Galactic humans of Procyon are typical Lyran-Sirian in appearance and look like typical Earth humans, with two major differences. First, eyes are much larger and appear more alive: color ranges through shades of blue, green and brown. Two smaller ears are attached slightly lower on head. Second, top and rear of head is enlarged to accommodate a larger brain capacity. Like other Lyran-Sirian humans, males are about 6 feet, 6 inches (1.83 meters) to 7 feet, 4 inches (2.24 meters) in height. Well-proportioned females are 6 feet, 4 inches (1.93 meters) to almost 7 feet (2.13 meters) tall.
Amphiboid-Reptoid Beings possess a lizard-like body covered with scaly skin. Bulgy brown, yellow or red eyes are set far apart from very thin ridge-like nose that ends in two small slit-like nostrils. Eyes can move independently of each other. Ears are small 2-inch (5 centimeter) ovals set just behind each eye. Mouth is thin slit that runs from ear to ear. Almost round head is well-proportioned to rest of body. Small, well-defined neck. Very muscular body and appendices. Four thin, nail-less fingers. Three long toes end in long sharp claws. Very small tail looks like bump at base of spine. Slightly larger females range from 7 to 8 feet (2.13 to 2.44 meters) tall. More compact males are 7 to 7 feet, 8 inches (2.13 to 2.34 meters) in height.
Special Traits and Abilities: Noted as avid explorers and consummate scientists. Have led some of the most successful expeditions into previously unexplored parts of this and other galaxies.
Average Amount of Sleep Needed: Humanoids require only about 1-2 hours: Amphiboid-Reptoids need about 3-4 hours.
Language: Humanoid language is very tonal, with few guttural sounds. Amphiboid-Reptoid language is tonal and guttural.
Mother Ship and Other Craft: Mother ship and other craft: Scout craft of Procyon look like either large tear-drops, or like a large beetle, and range from 45 to 200 feet (13.72 to 61 meters) across. Deep space Mother ships are shaped like either huge snowflakes or enormous jellyfish, and are from 100 to 4,000 miles (161 to 6,440 kilometers) long.
