A type of giant terragen sauropod dinosaur. Originally from Jurassic to Middle Cretaceous periods of Old Earth. Average length 18 to 30 meters, average weight 15 to 50 tonnes. Distinguished by their long forelimbs, giraffe-like neck and back, and high dome-like nostrils.

Although a popular animal among lazurogenic entertainment corporations, authentic brachiosaurs were not reconstructed until the middle Federation period.

During the middle Empires period the hyperturing GEvidian provolved a brachiosaur colony without permission from the Jurassica Institute.

Current Era

Currently, breeding populations are successfully established and continue to thrive on Owen, Duiris, and various other locations. Moreover, there is an extant population of sapient brachiosaurs residing in certain giant orbital habitats surrounding Owen, as well as within select regions of the Disarchy and the MPA.
