this being was a member of an alien race which existed for eons in the depths of space, descending from a race of sentient machines that was created by another race that was wiped out when their sun went supernova. Like The Rest of his people, The Other resembled a huge, ovoid starship that was covered with polished silver plating. The Other's race had grown stagnant, and they longed for excitement and risks. One such risk became a problem for them, as it caused violence and destruction, and they were forced to recover it. Thus, The Other was amazed to learn that The One had created the droid known as Vuffi Raa as a kind of recording device, activating the little droid and sending it out into the galaxy to interact with other races and report back.
