Baakili Far Trader OXP

by Zieman

This OXP adds an enigmatic alien race to the Ooniverse. These aliens fly gigantic, weird-looking spaceships and trade, as they say: "in information, sometimes esoteric, but always accurate".

Inspired by a character found in Paul Neurath's Space Rogue (Origin 1989).
