GameVortex - The Vla-hurk civilization was an advanced one, with the technology to not only replace limbs and organs, but to enhance their capabilities. However, the rise of a new religion, the New World Religion, turned the public opinion against cybernetic augmentation. Soon, the cyberneticaly enhanced are shunned as a lower, less pure class. This went on for a thousand years, until those who chose augmentation decided to abandon their home-world to become a spacefaring, nomadic society... but not before nuking the entire planet from orbit. Now, they move from system to system, never to step on a planetary surface again.
