Tobias_Marco: I like that idea. I think sometimes if a class is a more advanced continuation of another one, they can have different names.

kgray: Maybe, but he mentions learning about humans in both classes. There could be a different dividing criterion between the classes that humans managed to fit both sides of, or one of the classes focused on the same group of species but taught more advanced knowledge?

Did I make an error when I said I was Australese?

If we want to give KA the benefit of the doubt then we could say that the translation was doing the best that it could with English words and was using Xenobiology in the sense of non-carbon based lifeforms (i.e. silicon or something else) and exobiology as non-andalite, yet still carbon based, lifeforms.
<If xenobiology covers all life forms, carbon based and not, then they might cover Humans, and if exobiology only covers carbon based then Humans can be covered in that class as well, however that seems wrong to me for some reason. There are many different kinds of 'alien' life forms that we see in the Animorph books (alien from the Andalite's point of view), and if you were going to break it up like that you should have one class for carbon based life forms, a second class for silicon based life forms, still another class for germanium based life and a 4th class for tin based life, a 5th for lead based life forms and a 6th class for the much rarer flerovium based life forms.>
<Each life form, Human, Hork-Bajir, Yeerk or whatever would only be talked about in whatever class it is most relevant to. However before you got to that level of classes you would take a general Xenobiology class that would talk about the most common life forms in the galaxy.>

<Someday when you are in the military on a dome ship these are the 20 different kinds of aliens that you are most likely to encounter, some of these are carbon based, some are silicon based, 3 are tin based and one is flerovium based.> Mr. Teacher said, <We will spend 2 weeks talking about each of of these aliens. Now technically we should be talking about Yeerks in this class, however with the war on it has been decided that there is a special class on Yeerks that each of you should have on your class list where you will learn about Yeerks and some of their more common host species. This frees up a few weeks for us to talk about a species called Humans who we have only recently began learning about, so there isn't yet much to cover. As a result you should all pass the test on Humans very easily.>

whoa!

that's a very detailed list. I think I'll go through each list as I finish the books one by one....

I've always wondered about the humans they saved. for example, the human that escaped the yeerk pool the first time they tried destroying it. and the human Tobias helped escaped into the forest

Really, I'm pretty sure that's just fan speculation, since as far as I know, there was no official word on that. Of course, there's also a good chance that it was someone else who somehow escaped the Yeerks.

<On theory I heard somewhere, or possably came up with myself long ago, I really don't remember, is that her Yeerk starved from the events in book #7. Somehow I may have even thought there was a line to that effect in the book.>
<I may need to read #1 then MM1 back to back, yet I have so many books on my plate right now.>

Hm, that's actually not a bad theory. I'll have to look into that.

These are factual discrepancies, not KASUs, but I just wanted to say/ask these things anyway. Sorreh. (Random intentional misspelling)

About the whole eardrum thing, maybe Yeerks just cause a buttload of hearing damage. It's been established that it's really painful to have a yeerk crawl inside, so who knows?
Somebody might have already mentioned this but I didn't read the list since it clearly had spoilers. Unfortunately, I already knew about Rachel's death thanks to spoiler blurtin' folk.
Anyway, in The Andalite Chronicles, the characters were exposed to the vacuum of space. I know that it's really cold OR really hot depending on your location. Basically, you're gonna die from the extreme temperatures... UNLESS, both times that it happened, you were in very lucky places, but what're the odds of that Did I miss something?
Also, you won't explode in space.
Asteroid belts aren't even close to being flipping dangerous, even if there were living ones, because they're so far apart.
Black holes aren't uber powerful - it's only as powerful as the stuff it's taken. So, like, if it sucked up the sun, we might be okay since its power would be equal to the sun. Don't quote me on this, though, because I got this off the internet.

Look, I love Andalite Chronicles, but there are so many factual errors it hurts.

<The strength of a black hole comes from the mass and the distance from that mass (the same as anything else), meaning that if the sun were replaced with an equally massive black hole then Earth's orbit would not be affected. Sure we wouldn't have any more light, but at least our orbit would stay the same.>
<On the other hand if I stand next to a huge building I notice nothing, yet if the mass of that building were to be crammed into a ball the size of a pea and you tried to touch it the force would rip your finger tips off. (Thank you http://shop.xkcd.com/pages/if-you-re-lo ... at-if-book )>
