- Main article: History of the B²
The B² evolved in the oceans of planet Foaveq, and are
thus an aquatic race. During the course of their
evolution they have developed limited land traversing
capabilities, but prefer to stay mostly underwater,
especially since Foaveq is almost entirely covered by
Technology and Industry
The major B² export commodity is their medical
technology, both conventional and nanotech based, which
they have honed to perfection thanks to their naturally
long life span and the healing properties of several
plants on their homeworld.
Significant B² innovations include technology for oxygen extraction in air, which allowed them to inhabit the land masses of their homeworld.
They are space farers, but their home system offered very little space for expansion; the environment was sufficient to support B² colonists only on their moon and some of the satellites in orbit of Fhoglus. This led to an early B² discovery of FTL travel.
The first B² contact with an alien species was with the 1110110110101111, who by that time had already contacted several other civilizations. This historic event led to the founding of the United Commonwealth of Planets, with the B² as one of the founders.
In the early days of B² civilization, the process of urbanization led to an overpopulation problem. Efforts were made to inhabit the deeper parts of the ocean, but these proved unsuccessful time and time again due to the extreme pressures involved. As the B² are naturally long lived, the only means to control this was to establish strict birth control regulations. While these regulations are not as strict as they used to be there are still certain regulations in place due to the long life of B²s.
