The Muklukians are a race of diminutive, sapient shrimp indigenous to the planet Mukluk measuring only a few centimeters tall. Unlike most shrimp, the Mukluks have evolved to live a land-based existence, walking on two pairs of legs while a single pair of legs have evolved into arms, while their chelae have adapted into hands.

Their hue can vary from the most common pinkish red, to a greenish-blue or purple.


The Muklukians are a spacefaring species flying in ships resembling lobsters. They are controlled by a monarchical system ruled over by a king. Muklukian technology has somehow been based upon bubble-like structures that can be altered to assume any size or shape. They have invented memory erasing tech.
