The Parcical‘s Zoo, on Deck 1, provides close to five hundred habitats (HABs) to alien worlds—accessible via four configurable portals. These habitats (stored virtually within a multiverse realm) are actually smaller contained copies of the original alien environment areas that typically span no more than a few hundred miles. Caldurians piloting vessels such as the Minian, The Lilly, and the Parcical spent much of their time exploring the universe where they would duplicate the favorite or most interesting alien environments into these habitats.
