THE ENCYCLOPEDIA GALACTICA
A Field Guide to Cosmic Flora
So frequently in life, we are encouraged to stop and smell the roses. In 2267, Awk Ro asked us to stop, smell and, indeed, taste the Spaceblooms - a unique collection of cosmic flora of no natural garden variety. Spaceblooms are autonomous, self-propelling and self-propagating cosmic plants belonging to the class of startonguites.
Spaceblooms emerged at the end of the Interregnum during a remarkably long period of unprecedented growth in human knowledge. In a world where the collective imagination of the future of space was limited to mining and militarization, Spaceblooms offered a vision for filling Space with flowers. Needless to say these are not flowers as we usually know them.
