Space Squid

A Space Squid

Gourd Mollusc is a non-sapient, spacefaring creature that inhabits Lagrange Clouds and loosely resembles Earth-like mollusks. They appear to communicate with each other using whale-like vocalizations, and shy away from any ships that approach them.[1]


There are seven known types of Gourd Mollusc:

  • Albulum Gourd Mollusc - similar behaviour to Croceus Gourd Mollusc. Speed is <10m/s. Won't approach a Solid Mineral Sphere and, if pushed, will try to move away from it.
  • Caeruleum Gourd Mollusc
  • Croceum Gourd Mollusc - Will move towards ships if approached. They will usually approach to within ~40m, back away to 80m, then return and repeat infinitely. Additionally they will follow a ship for several kilometers so long as they are not outrun however they will apparently cease to follow a ship that is within ~685m of a Metallic Crystal for unknown reasons.
  • Phoeniceum Gourd Mollusc
  • Purpureum Gourd Mollusc
  • Rufum Gourd Mollusc
  • Viride Gourd Mollusc
