These "giant polyps" are an alien form of life that was unexpectedly discovered on the planet Vargon III.


Nothing is known about these creatures other than that they seem to dwell in tunnels created by volcanic vents, and that their planet was believed to be a barren, life-less world; until the polyps came up and "snared" the first Human explorers.
