The Noki were an ancient anteater - like race and the first sentient life form in the Milky Way galaxy. They were like the Ancient Mesopotamians except on a galactic scale. The Noki are native to the now - parasite infested planet Nookai. The Noki appear to be a mix between a monkey and an anteater, they have a head like an anteater. But have a monkey like tail, hands, and feet. The Noki are bipedal and are shorter than humans. There eyes are very sensitive and goggles would be needed to survive on almost any other planet. They left behind many ruins after they went into hiding at the end of the Noki Crisis. The GDA have discovered alot of noki ruins and since they don't know very much about them, including their name, they have nicknamed them the precursors. The noki are currently hiding in underground vaults on their colony worlds or aboard spaceships drifting in space.
