The Aaltice (aal-TEESS; singular and plural) are at the peak of the galactic technological ladder. They are a bipedal cani-felinoid species from Qromeelln (kro-MEEL'n), a densely populated ecumenopolis located in the Koorbshayn (korb-SHANE) system near what is considered the northern edge of the galaxy.
They are one of the few remaining species of the Anterior Base, a group of the original galactic species. Aaltice civilization appeared sometime around 103,900 BC.
Traders and businessmen from all across the galaxy have attempted for several centuries to acquire Aaltice technology, but the Aaltice made it very clear that their technology is not for sale.
