Re: So maybe aliens will be humanoid after all

There are others that migrate: Cetaceans, insects (butterflies, specifically) and large mammals like elephants and bison. I don't know about insects and bison, but elephants and cetaceans have been proven to be clever animals. But you bring up a more important note of adaptability to climate. If gi...

Re: So maybe aliens will be humanoid after all

Migration is another form of adapting to the seasons. It's another example of species being clever but not intelligent. There's an advantage to staying put, but most animals simply go where the climate is comfortable and the food located. Whether that's better is more of a judgment call Most migrat...

Re: Alliance Constellation (Picture Heavy)

Back off the stand for better manipulation. Egg of the duck and silver undercoat for the clear blue. I found a spot to balance the bridge and ventral humps, a section of nacelle, not totally clear but these are real "in progress" shots, no clean up yet and I think second coats are required...

Re: So maybe aliens will be humanoid after all

Then again it happening once bodes well for it happening again. We are the only life form that lives on every continent and in every environment. The intelligence advantage is flexibility. Two cold, we wear clothing. Not enough water, we dig wells. Too hot, Air Conditioning. We evolve our environmen...

Re: If you want to help AST read this!

I would love to, but I'm reluctant for the health reasons that have hit a lot of people here. I'm a touch fragile in that department. If there is something that dropping of the face of the planet will not impact, let me know.

Re: So maybe aliens will be humanoid after all

While I agree that the basic chemistry of life is likely to be similar. That basic chemistry has produced two different blood oxygenation schemes, yes, copper blooded beasts exist. And three basic body forms. cephalopods, arthropods, and vertebrate. And a lot of variation within the three basic cate...

Re: AllScaleTrek.com 5th Anniversary

And a well deserved hip-hip or five for Xen that started it and in spite of personal issues has stayed the course. Thank you Xen. And thank you to the rest of the crew that have kept the beast ticking along. I for one appreciate the state of benign neglect that is moderation around here. The best th...
