Is that ONE version of the felisian languge, or "merely" the most commonly used one? I presume that not the entire Felisian race speaks only one languge.
Seeing as how very few Felisians are known to remain, spread throughout their galaxy, the file I posted above details what is likely the single language used in communication nowadays. At least, it is all the information that is officially known about the Felisian language.
That raises me to another question: my didn't the pilot Felisians start a colony? I mean, there are worlds that can support
them, they most likely have the technology and knowladge to do so (as they pilot the Stardrifters). I also presume that there are females as much as males as pilots and there can be enough Stardrifter pilots.

While there's no official answer (possibly other than that Felisians have a different mindset than human beings), we did have a fun discussion about this a few years ago. Among other theories, it was proposed (by yours sincerely) that the Felisian StarDrifter pilots could have been sterilized at birth to prevent run-away genetic problems.

We already know that Felisians have pretty much engineered their whole modern species; not much remains of the natural creature - their skin has become space-suits, their skeleton and muscles have been strengthened and amplified with advanced bio-engineering, their very minds have been irreversibly fused with organic machinery. Since the Felisian DNA has been so extensively modified, procreation the natural way might be quite risky, as a single misspelling of the already altered genetic code could lead to serious consequences down the road. Possibly, in the last days of the Felisian civilization, children were born in "test tubes": in completely controlled environments.

My point is that, if there could be no more children, and therefore no future generations, then the explorers might have decided that recolonization was just a bad idea. After all, what use would those last Felisians be if all they did was to sit around and wait for their eventual death? Instead, they might have elected to continue their exploration of the galaxy, in search for any hint of whatever happened to the rest of their species: for any hope of salvation.

...Sex has never been a taboo for them [the Felisians]. They don't have problems doing it in public. Also, they don't need to be a male and a female to do that, if you get what I mean.., it's 50/50, there are no such restrictions. 99% percent of Felisians do it in both ways without any problems, probably because males aren't physically much different from females. However, despite these facts, they aren't normally very prone to have sex: they often wait whole centuries before doing it again.

-what is in an avarage felisian household?
Assuming you are talking about family life here.

Well they are loners, males and females live alone, and they don't form lifelong family bonds, the mothers raise the kids and the fathers run off.

Thank you Raptorjedi, but I was referring to the physical household, NOT family life. I read that part.
I mean, if I walked into a Felisian house, what would I find?

And if Felisians were born in tubes, woudn't those tubes be there? Or was the planet they are supposed to return to completly empty?
I still don't fully understand that part. There is mention of ruins, and I presume there is stil some signs among those ruins. Perhaps even some babies?

Empty as in devoid of intelligent life. The structures of the Felisian civilization still stand on several worlds surrounding Balastrackonastreya, plus those of colonies on worlds around some of the neighbouring stars of Ylastravenya and Fenia. Unfortunately, those structures are now only silent ruins, and none of them has yet yielded any clues of wherever the rest of the Felisian race vent or why.

As for why the explorers had not just restarted the old medical equipment to allow them to produce offspring - maybe it is due to the fact that they are explorers with little or no knowledge in medicine. For example, I don’t have a clue on how to operate an X-ray machine, or a CAT-scanner, so I would probably need qualified personnel to guide me through the process step by step (written manuals probably wouldn’t be enough either without at least some basic understanding of the subject matter). In the case of the Felisians, no one remained

Not good enough excuse.

Astronaughts are requires to have medical knowladge in order to qualfie. This is becuse out in space, you can't just go to the nearest hospital.
I reckon that with Felisian deep-space scouts it is the same. Even with their night-invurnability trough cyborg implants and such, there is still room for injury, for which there is only self-treatment out in open space.

Also, medical knowladge can be learned from books or their equilents. And Felisians have alot of time to learn.

Remember also that Felisians also have advanced technlogy. Today, computers store immense data and are used for medical applications when needed, and in perhaps in society with more advanced technology, medical computers and such most likely exist.

I also reckon that they didn't send idiots out there. They most likely are educated members of the community.

An x-ray device is a device that generates x-rays and sends them trough the targeted bodypart. On the opposite side of the x-rays, there is a sheet of special "paper" that is very senstive to x-rays. Where x-rays met with dense, solid material the sheet is white. Where it didn't, the sheet is black.

The "Empty as in devoid of intelligent life" I could figure out. What I am intrested in, is in WHAT STATE are the ruins. Are they ruins as unmaintained buildings? Are they ruins as peices of derbis? Are they ruins that have battle-scars?

There has to be some clue within the ruins. If nothing else, sings if the Felisians left willingly or died from war.

Thats thinking like a human, felisians aren't humans.

Felisians aren't a warlike species. They have a natural tendency to mind their own business, so if some general tried to rally them together to fight, most would ignore him completely.

And I did get a response from Alex about homes, I just forgot I had it.

"Homes were used for sleeping [upon soft fluffy rugs] although they often slept outside when the weather allowed a pelasant stay, but especially, homes were used for getting together to discuss stuff, for working, closed-space entertainments, have sex etc..."

[q]Thats thinking like a human, felisians aren't humans.[q/]

That's common sense. When you are alone in deep space, it's just common sense to have minimal medical knowladg in case you hurt yourself.

[q]Felisians aren't a warlike species. They have a natural tendency to mind their own business, so if some general tried to rally them together to fight, most would ignore him completely.[q/]

I KNOW that. I was reffering to the possibility that some OTHER race waged war on the Felisians.

On homes, I meant specificly. Did they have TV? Did they have different rooms? Did they use sandboxes for...you know? Did they cook on fire? Do they have kitches? Were there equilents of a refigarator?

Please understand that I already read the tread from the very first page. I am trying to get new information here, by asking questions.

True, but there's quite a way between knowing how to heal a broken leg and knowing how to make a whole new member of your species.

About the state of the ruins: from what we can see in Noctis gameplay, the structures seems to be intact, but covered with undergrowth, indicating that the Felisians might have vanished quite some time ago, relatively speaking. There are absolutely no signs of panic, war or pestilence, so whatever happened was either something peaceful, or it occurred really fast.

Only Alex could answer that, and RJ told you what he answered earlier.

I know that too, but doesn't Alex visit the forums too?

Already answered that back with the first questions you asked. There are no other sentient species in the Noctis galaxy outside of fanfiction. There could be some outside of the galaxy, but the distance traveled and all that would make it improbable, if not impossible that anyone would ever travel that distance. If it was a war, and a species traveled all that distance to wage it, they would still be there. If you come all the way to another galaxy with war ships, you don't spin around to leave after. If you come you are coming to stay.
