The Karnimata have by far had the most time per capita to explore all of the Known Universe. In fact, since they have increased communication with other species than their own in recent times, most of what is Known about the Known Universe has come from them. They have been adding to their database for at least 20 times longer than the oldest species after them has been around.
They live up 3.000 years and therefore have had the most time per capita to explore Outer Space. Interaction with them is limited to verbal and written communication. The Karnimata have offered up enough evidence to prove their existence but they have never disclosed any visual communication of themselves due to how protective they are in regards to ever being discovered.
The Karnimate are specialized in several technologies:
- Shielding - due to their minuscule size, the Karnimata developed this technology very early on in their interstellar age (which they have been in for several hundreds of million years) when they found out that they were by far the smallest intelligent species in existence. They realized quickly that were they ever to be attacked, they would have no chance to protect themselves until the day they invented a super weapon. Whether the Karnimata have such a weapon or not is pure speculation as nobody has actually ever found them. They have hinted that they would never want to use such weapon, and if they in any way would be discovered they might have to, due to how valuable the information is that they hold. No official statements have been issued stating that any such weapon exists.
- Space Travel - Karnimata spaceships are ingenious inventions that are capable of traversing both all the reaches of Known Space as well as all the reaches of organic, living material. Most frequently they are used for relatively short distance space travel (relative to what the Karnimata know, which for most species would be very far) and are then flown mostly into the brains of living beings, or the equivalent thereof. Once inside the brain they are left in an unobtrusive and unnoticeable spot and the Karnimate begins the work intensive journey of setting up a temporary home within the brain. Using their shielding technology, a Karnimata is able to ensure that they will never be discovered. Due to how long the Karnimata have existed, their shielding technology is far more advanced than any technology other species might have to try and discover it. Their 'head start' is so large that few have any hope of ever discovering their physical existence in this or the next hundred lifetimes, and the Karnimata have no worries whatsoever about being discovered since they continuously improve their technology despite their already uncompromising advantage.
