Doom 2099 I#18 (fb)) - The Linstrea's patterns of harmonic resonance has shaped the sound-sensitive crystal gardens on the surface of their planet, Tsomnaia.

(Doom 2099 I#18 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, the Linstrea communed with the Y'Lestja, an energy/consciousness collective race who traveled the universe, merging their consciousness with apparently all beings on a planet and sharing the collective knowledge they have gained.

Comments: Created by John Frances Moore, Pat Broderick, and John Nyberg.

    The Linstrea are shown in a single panel, so that's all we've got to go on.

    They existed in the state described at some point prior to the Y'Lestja's traveling to Earth in Earth's year 2099 A.D. It is unrevealed how far into the past they have existed.

    IF Reality-928 shares a common history with Reality-616, then it would stand that the Linstrea exist in Reality-616 as well, but perhaps the Linstrea encountered Galactus or the Ebon-Seeker or the Black Stars or some similar being/race that had slaughtered multitudes of beings and races in the past.

Profile by Snood.

The Linstrea should be distinguished from:

unidentified solar system, unidentified galaxy, Reality-928 circa 2099 A.D. (at least).

     The planet possesses sound-sensitive crystal gardens on its surface; these are shaped by the flying Linstrea's
patterns of harmonic resonance.
