The Psilons are a delicate race of brilliant researchers from a Low-G home
world. Each Psilon scientist produces 2 more research than the galactic
norm. In addition, the Psilons are very creative, and they never ignore a
potential avenue of research. Thus, all technologies are available to their
scientists. That they have a large home world doesn't
hurt. Peer review and tenure squabbles have prevented them from
achieving a form of government more advantageous than a Dictatorship.
