Default Droyne

In the GT AM for Droyne, apparently on some worlds there's purple ang green Droyne. Is that a Bab 5 nod to the Drazi episode?

Do you have a page reference? I know of no such description.

Have no idea whether or not it is a Bab5 homage. My guess is that it is simply the normal range of shades of hide along a spectrum, just like humans have a range of skin colors along a spectrum, even on a single world.

The Bab5 Drazi purple and greens had nothing to do with skin color, but rather with affiliations associated with a cultural event (somewhat reminiscent of the rivalry between the reds, whites, blues and greens under the early Byzantine Empire: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nika_riots ).

Well, it seemed too coincidental to me, so I thought I'd ask for some opinions.

It could just be a tongue-in-cheek reference.

It's what I figured, but was curious if anyone else thought the same.

Geometry of Shadows (the B5 episode) is 1994.

GTAR4 is 2000.

It looks like it may be a (IMO misguided and inappropriate) tribute.

But the best bet? Go ask in the Traveller subforum on SJG.
