Tywom are a race in Star Control: Origins. Their homeworld is Tywomia located in the Alpha Repeculae system. Their civilization is founded on the principles of lubrication, building ramps instead of stairs, and friendship.
Background[edit | edit source]
The Tywom are a carbon-based life form extant in our local region of space with many similarities to molluscs. They have four arm-like appendages, none of which are evidently used for propulsion, and an ever present oozing sap to their persons. Tywom appear to be highly intelligent and sociable creatures, though perhaps in need of some social coaching.
The entire race seems to originate from a genetic bottleneck caused by a particularly virulent plague that swept through their homeworld, killing off all but the most isolated and socially awkward Tywom. Although they rebuilt from near-extinction, this has left an unmistakable footprint - well, podprint - in their history. Unliked by most species, the Tywom are very eager to make friends and more than willing to help anyone in exchange for a kind word.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- The Tywom are the first alien species you encounter. A crashed ship on the surface of Triton broadcasts a distress call, setting in motion the events that lead to the fall of the Scryve. They are the first species to throw in with the humans, primarily because the Scryve will murder the hell out of them for assisting the humans with destroying one of their light cruisers.
