Story

Mantids are a very rationally-oriented people who evolved from insects. They thrive everywhere because of their ability to adapt and because they are master geneticists and can modify their own genes as needed.

Gameplay

Mantids start with either additional population or an additional level in Genetics, depending upon the alignment. Additionally, they can grow their population twice as fast as normal. Therefore the best strategy is to seek stars that allow room to grow.
