Xu Fu

Named after a historical Chinese explorer, many gatecrashers consider xu fus the ideal exoplanet exploration synthmorph. Its main body sits atop 6 legs (up to 2 meters long, though retractable) that end in multidirectional smart wheels for quick travel, capable of rolling in any direction and over rough terrain. For exception- ally difficult terrain, the wheels can be retracted and the xu fu can maneuver as a walker. In addition to two standard arms, it features a third 2-meter long sensor-equipped limb for reaching far distances, overseeing obstacles, etc. Xu fus have an impressive sensor package and are ideal for surface-based scouting as well as investigating tunnels, collecting samples, and so on.
