E-rays are beings of pure energy. Since pure energy spreads with the speed of light and normally the localbound existence of pure energy
is not possible, the development of the e-rays civilization was only possible by an anomaly of
quantums on their homeplanet. They evolved superconducting crystals wherein energy could be
bound locally and permanently in quantum pots.
thus a purely energetic lifeform could develop and form a whole civilization
based on crystal constructions of very different types.
space travel developed late, since the e-rays already had enough problems with their
daily existence. They often had to deplore the disappearance of several photons from the
quantum pots caused by the tunnel effect.
because of their constitution they are durable spacemen and are very well suited to the
conditions in space.
there aren't many political problems in their organization, since there are many enlightened ones. Other races of a rather physical nature react restrained which makes some e-rays very sad.
the space technology of the e-rays is based on crystal constructions, which is the reason for compact
structures on the one hand but prove as very inflexible on the other hand.
The fact that the e-rays feel equally comfortable in every kind of crystal is very advantageous,
whether on their home planet or in deepest space. The sickness "space tizziness", which is so much
feared by other races, represents no problem for the e-rays.
The tactical advantages of the e-rays are based particularly in the use of
holographic deception maneuvers in space battles.

they can also research the technology of the humans and the kazuuula, but with a longer researchtime.
