      • Replicated nuts unable to provide suitable replacement by late 2379 due to complexity of organic molecules involved (TTN Novel: Taking Wing)
  • Cultural notes
    • Efrosian language
    • Much longer history before reaching spacefaring age than most humanoid species due to difficult environmental conditions resulting from severe ice age throughout development (TTN Novel: Taking Wing)
    • Strong oral tradition species-wide of full cultural history (TTN Novel: Taking Wing)
      • Tradition developed due to environmental conditions leading to unreliable physical recording of information from generation to generation (TTN Novel: Taking Wing)
      • Electronic data storage continued to be largely aural rather than optical even into the present day as a result (TTN Novel: Taking Wing)
