Trope-a-Day: Heavyworlder

Heavyworlder: Yes, but this universe is hard-SF enough that they do reflect the “compact, stout, and short” version of the trope.  Of course, seeing as eldrae are all height-advantaged anyway, even the heavyworlder clades are still looking humans in the eye.

There are also lightworlders, of course, and Fan Service or no, they are that skinny.
