The Cynoid are one of the playable races in Master of Orion 3. They are a "cybernetik" species, along with the Meklar. They do not appear in any other title of the series.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Cynoid have not completely turned their back on their biological origins, and are cyborgs, unlike the completely artificial Meklar. The Cynoid are ruthless and brilliant when it comes to economic calculations and financial matters. They understand the value of money, how to work it, how to use it, and how to exploit it in every way possible. Outstanding barterers, they are often interested in improving the lot of their citizens to make them more productive and, hence, more taxable.
