Notes from the UNIverse #1 by Colonel-Gabbo Notes from the UNIverse #1 by Colonel-Gabbo
Before the drop of the true and only one background of the UNIverse,I'd like to tease you with this :)

More information about the UNIs and their (not so) tiny neighbors.

From upper left in counterclockwise :D

-----

Probably a curious fact about the UNIs is that there are some being of other races that are worthy their respetc and ammiration. And between these lucky beings,one of the most admired is a man called Lun D. Daleer. All of his fame comes from the events of the SG554 siege,where he succesfully managed to save a UNI colony from 'an ancient threat'. 56 UNIs were saved that day,even if the ships were too small for the average sizes of the UNIs in danger. As a reward for his brave actions,the UNI engineer built and gave to him and his crew a special vessel for him and for the UNIs he managed to save. The vessel is now known as the 'No Horizons'.

Most fleet (military and non) have developed in the UNIverse a variety of enormous ships. Both to reach a major firepower and to allow the UNIs that want to travel with other tinies a different travelling experience. Sometimes ships that big deploy an incredible arsenal,not to mention the large crew they need to fly. It could happen that members of the crew are rouge UNIs

It could be strange or weird to hear and see,but some UNIs works with other races. A case to be mentioned is the one of UNI-RID. When she refused to obey a higher ranked UNI,she lost her position in the system she used to be and started to wander in the galaxy as a rouge UNI. Now,centuries after that ,she works as a officer on the 'No Horizons'. Even if she's not even close to the rank of Admiral,she actively take part in the meetings between the highest ranked officers of the human Navy. A fact to be mentioned is that she only obeys to the orders of Lun Daleer. Keep always in mind that we're talking about a UNI...so even if she works for someone,keep in mind that she could still crush you in seconds.

The UNI next to RID was just a doodle. Nothing else to say :D I like her skin color :)

Another male UNI ? Yes. But this is not the place to talk about him. This is just a concept,an exercise to practice more male UNIs. He'll have a background too.

And here it is. The 'No Horizon' vessel. Probably one of the finest work made by the UNIs for an alien race. More than a ship,the 'No Horizon' is a machanical flat planet. It has everything a planet can offer and even more. It's probably the only ship built both for UNIs and other races. Both the crew and the passengers are UNIs and non UNIs. As said before,the captain of the ship is the admiral Lun Daleer.

The last one,in the upper right,requires a special description. I always wondered 'How can I show the last step of UNI evolution ?' Well,that's how I imagined the UNIverse,the last evolutive stage of the UNIs. How big is she ? Impossible to say,since she IS the Universe. At this stage,the powers of a UNIs are comparable to the one of a God. She can define the very structure of the Universe she represents,the time courses and all of the timelines. Every creature,every star,every galaxy supercluster exist cause she wants it to be,while she quietly moves in the ocean of existence...

Mmmmh do love when someone is totally loyal and taking orders from anyone worth it even when they could indeed at any time choose to crush'em like nothing ^^ But her deal makes enough sense. (mostly 'cos was bored)

Would the male UNI's have always existed or they a new addition?

Hey so I've gotten into Galactic civilization 3 and wanted to create the UNI as a species but I don't know what to do for their leader portrait or their logo. Wondering if you could give me some suggestions.

I was talking about the 56km long ship not the no horizon =P that is easily one of the largest ships in fiction, heck it dwarfs some planets too

Well,yeah...they arent all that big though :D

Oh please :O the other "bigger" ship is Forerunner fortress ship at 100km,....as far as I know....and those were top of the line =P

They are big when compared to other fictions xD

Well,there's the Halo rings that have a diameter of 10.000 Km...

Forerunners were pretty sick at building large ships :D And keep in mind Requiem...

Oh wow, this stuff is absolutely awesome :O !

Interesting lore for humanity! And a particular human figure being important to the UNI is certainly a cool concept too. Maybe why humans have been treated better.

Oh UNI-RID is certainly interesting! It's interesting to think that a being like her could work for the UNI for *millions* of years, only to wind up insubordinate and going rogue. Would be quite amazing to think as a human that one of your crewmates is older than your entire species :O

A really interesting ship design too! Really must be huge and incredible to house both UNI and humans reasonably.

Oh my god. The UNIverse is actually an UNI? Wow, that is an incredible thought! Hopefully we can learn exactly how or why an UNI became the universe, and how that affects how the universe works. 
I wonder what she's like to. Just because she embodies the universe doesn't mean she isn't a person herself, and i'm sure she'd be interesting to meet.

Glad you like it !!

I planned to add some relevant non UNI characters in the UNIverse...starting from us humans :D:D

I found interesting having some of the most powerful creatures of the Universe as members of other races :) Is a concept I had in mind from a long time,and I'll probably continue with it :D Probably adding more military UNIs to the human armies...or having a UNI running a workshop :D:D

Probably one of the biggest ship I ever made :D

This stage of the UNIs is still in dev...both cause I'm finishing their backgroung and because I focused more on their look instead of their story :D Sooner I'll write more about them...and probably with a nice and BIG new entry :D

Fun to see some non-UNI of course. Maybe we'll meet some other aliens at some point too! I imagine there are a lot of other "giant races" that have had their fun ruined by the bigger UNI gals showing up :D

Yeah, definitely interesting! 
Strange to imagine that the alien fixing up your ship has owned that wrench longer than you species has been sentient!
I imagine also a lot of 'rogue' neutral UNI running workshops and buisnesses and things across the UNIverse would also fill that roll quite interestingly. Either way, will be interesting to see!

Certainly huge! Less of a ship and more of a mobile planet :D
I'm sure things that big are quite necessary for the UNI to operate in.
(I'm imagining them docking on END and *still* being tiny compared to her, probably amusing for her to see :D)

Well that is certainly awesome to contemplate! With something so big and important, I can only hope whatever BIG thing you have in store for her will reveal the nature of the living UNIverse!

I think I have somewhere a file with other races to add in the UNIverse...probably when I'll have some time I'll try to design them :D The saying ''There's always someone bigger'' is still a fundament there :D

Both interesting and funny indeed :D Like...I dunno...''This store has been active for : 5.2 million years'' :D An etrernal store :D:D And the most interesting thing would be having UNIs of all kinds and sizes working there.

That is a really nice idea ;)

I just have to set a pose and the colours of the background :D Her design is quite all set up :D

:iconfreemanface2:
freemanface2 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2017
Definitely imagine it is :D
I'm sure there are other hot-shot aliens, giants and giantesses, that wanted to play the 'mighty conquerors from the stars' role, but had the UNI show up and put them to absolute shame :D

Definitely, haha! A great thing indeed to be sure. 

"Oh that's out of stock, i'll see what I can do about getting it back in the next century or two. If you want rush delivery, I can try to keep it under 110 years."
And the idea that 5.2 million years, to some UNI, isn't that long either! Some can stretch into the freakin' BILLIONS of years! Certainly awesome indeed :D :D :D
"I've had this T-shirt longer than your sun has been glowing, no big deal"
The UNI staff of places certainly would be awesome I imagine; waitresses, dancers, engineers, all big and awesome to see!

Thank you! She is effectively the UNI "Flagship", so it only makes sense big ships like this would meet up with her. Probably something quite fun for her ;)

Agreed, it's quite cool! 
Will be happy to see more of the UNIVERSE in the future :)

I had planned to add both giants and non giant alien races....and for sure i was working on a mechanical/bio mechanical race of giantesses :D Still need some details tho.. :dummy:

Now i wanna draw a UNI wearing a tight t-shirt :D And i wanna buy things from that store just to make the UNI who runs the store happy :D
But certainly seeing the UNIs integrated in other races could be nice...especially with humans :)

Now that I think about it...would be the most epic docking scene since Interstellar :D

:iconfreemanface2:
freemanface2 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2017
Those all sound quite cool, will be happy to see them added!

A good thought :D
The items in the store might be gigantic, given how big even the smallest UNI is, but seeing such a cute vendor gal is sure to attract plenty of willing customers :D

Yeah, it certainly could be nice! Shows that while they'll always be playful and probably think they're better than other little races, they're willing to play nice sometimes :D

Most certainly would :D!
A planet-sized ship slowly connecting...to a sun-sized alien boob :D :D :D

Indeed :) Gonna work on them too now :D

It's always a good thought when it comes to draw a cute/sexy UNI :D
Imagine having her attending a human customer :D 

Indeed :) I think that some UNIs could find living a human like life pretty nice...excpet for the fact they could virtually live forever :D

That's awesome...but i would replace the dramatic soundtrack with something more calm...even if 'No Time for Caution' remains one of the most intense tracks i've ever listened :D

Man you should show the ranking system of the UNI females as like the races from the normal forms to well this last evolution of the UNIs here. I mean my goodness there are so many that I may have lost track. Looks great.
