When this planet was discovered to have life, they were immediately dubbed Penguins, because of their short stature, and small wing-like apendages. Like Earth penguins, the Penguins of this planet cannot fly, but they do spend an inordinate amount of time sliding across the ice on their bellies which is the primary mode of transport here. The Penguins have houses built from blocks of ice, mostly, but sometimes other materials are used as well. Since the average temperature of the planet is -11 C (aproximately 12 degrees F) ice is plentiful on the planet's surface, and these bird-lke natives have plenty of fat and down (not quite feathers) to keep them warm, so their houses tend to resemble heaped up piles of snow drifts more than anythin ...
A quite unique science fiction wiki
Galaxiki is a completely new kind of science fiction and fantasy wiki, as it's a complete galaxy with millions of stars, planets and moons that are all represented by wiki pages. It's a collaborative community website where all users can help to fill the galaxy with life.
A wiki is software that allows users to create, edit, and link web pages easily, and one of the best known wikis is Wikipedia. Just as Wikipedia allows to edit articles, Galaxiki allows to edit stars, planets and moons. In fact you may consider each object in our science fiction galaxy to be one editable article:
One of the most interesting points is that your work doesn't have to be isolated. In general we'd like to follow common physical rules, but as this is a science fiction site some physical rules can be broken, and that's how it's allowed to travel faster than light in our galaxy. Which means that species from different planets and solar systems can meet, and users have to take care to keep the entire histories and stories consistent.
