I, uhh... accidentally started a very big project and could use some help. I know it's going somewhere, but I'm not sure if it will actually GET there. Well, anyway...
Keep in mind that it's still a sketch, though.

Here's some basic information about the [yet unnamed] race and their home:
They are an advanced species (about 600-800 years more technologically advanced than humans) and come from a [yet unnamed] planet orbiting around a [yet unnamed]
red giant (maybe a binary system for fanciness' sake, dunno yet; maybe something different altogether) binary star (totally plausible if the stars fulfill a set of conditions, which they do). The gravity there is a bit weaker than ours (say, 0.66G), so they are taller than humans (about 2.5 m; or 100").
They are peaceful (for comparison, I wouldn't really call humans peaceful), omnivorous, and their biggest achievements are in science and art.
They have bioluminescent parts, divided into three areas (shapes scattered around: head and neck; chest and arms; belly, legs and tail) - all these areas are used independently, can change color and flicker independently. All this is used for communication enhancement (among other things), along with elaborate chirp-like sounds, which are the primary means of communication.
Each one of them has different markings and colors - there is literally no such thing as two visually identical, or similar individuals. The bioluminescent parts are also in different shapes, but always in roughly the same places.
These markings and colors are not dependent on the parents' colors; they are totally random.
Also, they do not know the concept of gender - they are all agender, or bigender (or whatever you want to call it); no males and females whatsoever. So... coming up with their reproductive organs (and, uhh... process) is gonna be quite a challenge.
I'm thinking about doing something somewhat similar to marsupials.
That's almost all the basic info I have for now. I hope it's interesting for more people than just me and my brother.
I also hope you'll be able to give me some feedback and possible ideas. I actually would LOVE some questions about this species, as they would REALLY help me come up with facts!
I start too many projects.
