    Well, the replicators pretty much ate planets until it couldn't hold together anymore. What's topping your critter?

    Burn It All Away Blood moves the heavens. Fire purifies the land. Legends change worlds. Destiny burns.

    All are PG-13, each with a single act of rated R violence. Adults situations and other, tamer violence.

    Food sources. Predators. This isn't a planet-ending species. It's just an animal. I've created lots of animals and most of them can't end a planet. If a vortrix is brought to a planet it's an invasive species that results in loss of life and severe damage to the ecosystem but it won't overrun the country let alone the planet. Also, they can still be eaten by other predators. These things pose more threat to starships and space bases since it's lots of food in a small confined space with lots of places to hide and inadequate to no countering forces to keep their numbers in check.

    Ah. It would affect space travel by making food preservation need to be in layers (air tight container, lock, forcefield, child proof cap--pick two or three to keep the critters out). It could lead to alarms or exterminators or inspectors of refrigerators or storage units. There should probably be back up food, which means less storage space for other things or more space needed to accommodate everything.

    As for mining, does the critter eat mined materials?

    No. They're omnivorous but they can't eat rocks. They're dangerous to mining stations since shuttles will frequently come and go to pick up cargo, and that's more opportunities for a vortrix to inadvertently get lodged onto its hull and brought inside.

    What about one of those forcefield sweeps like on Starship Mine on TNG Trek? It kills anything organic. Variants of those could work.

    What about automatic canned air, no air, or special pressurization in store rooms and electronics? For the outside, ships could enter atmospheres and the intense heat should kill anything.
