A red dwarf (or red main sequence) is a small, dim star of relatively low mass. Because of their low fuel consumption red dwarf stars have a very long lifespan (In some cases a trillion years or more). They are the most common form of star in the universe and the Spore galaxy. A red dwarf star is a small and relatively cool star of the main sequence, either late K or M spectral type. In Spore red dwarves appear either dark or bright red. Their planets typically have red spice. They very occasionally have purple spice on one planet. In your third mission, your Homeworld will send you to a nearby red star to colonize a Rocky Planet. They are the most common stars in the Galaxy and because they are dim, they are the first stars to fade as a player zooms out.
