What does this mean? They became hedonists. Having a amazingly powerful metabolism sure helps. This turned their homeworld of Zeltros into an intergalactic party planet. Alive at all hours, experiencing all things life has to offer, and no taboo. Because they are also empaths, this means anyone visiting is instantly swept up into the madness. This actually has helped them as well. Zeltros has never been invaded-all attempts fail the moment troops hit the ground, and get pulled into one ongoing party. The Zeltron also have a pheromone that is intoxicating to others. This leads to the idea that the only thing a Zeltron cares about is sex.
Now to be fair, their sexual expression, experimenting, and just enjoying the positive states that come with the act are not lacking. It's a major deal. Yet a majority of the fanbase or, "more presumably the younger male population” focuses on this aspect alone, and it's transferred into role-playing, fan art or fan fiction. It's so much more! The Zeltron live to live. It goes far beyond sex. For them every bite of food, be it a favorite, or something new and exotic, is so much more than a simple meal, just like seeing art from all over the galaxy is so much more than just art. It's important to point out the differences, if just to clear the air, but on the true foundation of sci-fi in general. In the Zeltron is written our own passions to explore and experience life. To be able to do so without fear or judgment. They are our own reflections in many ways. It's something sci-fi has always aimed for, allowing our minds to reach out and touch the myriad possibilities and experiences about us.
