New monster for Holmes basic: Aquarian

This post rounds out the factions in the Starfleet Wars universe adopted for use with Dungeons & Dragons (the Holmes basic/blue book version) and my starship megadungeon (or is that megadungeon starship?) project.

Move: 120 feet/turn
Hit Dice: 1+1
Armor Class: 5
Treasure Type: Q
Alignment: any
Attacks: 1
Damage: 1-6 or special

As their name suggests, Aquarians are able to function in water as well as in air, and their gills act as filtration systems that give them a +2 save vs. poison gas.  Their breastplates give them protection equivalent to chainmail.  In addition to daggers and swords, Aquarians carry laser pistols similar to Terrans’, but will only use them if attacked.  In close combat, an Aquarian can attack with its tail; a successful hit means the target is knocked off its feet.  Aquarians prefer heat but dislike cold, and are not usually found in arctic environments.
