The Gem Slugs are perhaps the most undesirable of the nine primary races of the galaxy. They are loud, obnoxious, standoffish, haughty, aloof, fat, smelly, slimy... and filthy, filthy rich. They produce nothing, are consummate hedonists, and most do not like their company. However, none can argue with the method in which they gain their riches: they quite literally crap it out. The rare mineral turdite, rich with energy, is produced nowhere else in the universe other than the undesirable end of the already-undesirable Gem Slugs.

Gem slugs only really enjoy one thing, the Slugpartments, which cater to them and only them. They will however visit other high class establishments, like the cocktail bar, Space Inn, curiosity shop and Palace Galactica.

Gem slugs are some times affected by a lethal (to them) programming bug at the Slugpartments and cocktail bar, they sit on/in a slimebath or cocktail table and get stuck, dying when their stats get low. The only way to avoid this bug is to not place any slimebaths or cocktail tables.
