Hoffman's blobs are seemingly non-sentient creatures living in the void of space. They were discovered by Burno Hoffman in the Barnard's Star system.
Very little is known of those bizarre interstellar beings. The last sighting has been in the Galileo system. Scientists are now flocking to study these creatures before they leave, attempting to determine how it is that they are able to sustain themselves in the void of space. Observations suggest their size varying greatly, with the largest individuals proving as large as a space cruiser, and the smallest only the size of a shuttlecraft. It is unclear whether these differences are attributable to age or polymorphism. The creatures appear to primarily be drifters, but are capable of some acceleration.
Hoffman's blobs live in the void of space. Since they were discovered there have been six sightings of them. The last time in the Galileo system.
There has not been any exhaustive research on the behavior of Hoffman's blobs yet. From previous observations, it appears they travel in flocks of about a dozen units.
