Ostu: The ostu is a large herd animal from Viiman
(0321 Massilia). Attempts are being made to extend the planetary range
of this animal because of its excellent food possibilities. It also has
a tough, but workable, hide that can be used for leather on lower tech
worlds that lack indigenous animals that are usable in such a manner.
So far, results of the transplant experiments have been
poor, but the Imperial scientists are continuing to evaluate the results
to try to improve them, as a good deal of evidence exists that the First
Imperium had a similar, successful program. -mas
