Thanks! I enjoyed teaching you and playing with you. You seemed to pick up the game quickly.
When teaching any game, I always want to give the minimum information needed to get people started. We want to jump into playing as soon as we can. As you say, I gave just the barest information about each species.
Fortunately, the rules also have the short description you're looking for. At the very end is a side bar called "An introduction to the races of the Elysian Quadrant" which gives a very good idea of each races' feel, difficulty, and goals.
Well thank you, the game was a joy! I also felt my Century: Spice Road experience helped.
