The Tywom are a species of generally friendly monopods, and one of the younger members of the Scryve Empire. Discovered by the Scryve and made ward species approximately 600 years before the events of Star Control: Origins, the Tywom have largely been avoided by the other ward species, due to their grating, clingy personality. Even the Scryve don't want much to do with them, leaving the Tywom some measure of freedom to explore and experiment, that the other aliens in the Empire don't always have.



Society and Culture


They have quite a few systems under their control, 10 in total. Focused around the Repeculae cluster. They border the Mu'Kay and Human regions.

Relations with other species




The Tywom had started picking up human radio broadcasts since 2038 and did their best to conceal them from the Scryve. By 2088, however, the Scryve had picked up the broadcasts as well and sent ships to locate their origins. Wymdoo was sent to stall them and was subsequently shot down.

This lead to the Captain rescuing Wymdoo and humanity allying with the Tywom.


Tywom Defender

Tywom Science Vessel

The Tywom Defender Science vessel is a mid-sized fast moving craft used by the Tywom in their endless pursuit of new friends. Although not officially armed, the Tywom's natural cleverness has left it equipped with a variety of high-energy scientific instruments, which can be exceedingly dangerous if used inappropriately, something the Tywom are naturally quite good at. In addition to this, the Tywom vessel is capable of deploying drones with similar friend-making/destroying abilities.
