电影



As evidence of the hardiness and tenacity of life in the galaxy, a world as inhospitable as Mustafar has borne a variety of well-adapted life-forms on and beneath its hellish surface. The native Mustafarians have domesticated an enormous species of hard-shelled arthropods. These Mustafarian lava fleas are capable of walking on the encrusted surfaces of lava flows and atop the searing rock of the volcanic planet.
银河系生命顽强坚韧的一个例子,就是像穆斯塔法这样不适宜居住的世界也能在地狱般的地表上下孕育出各种各样适应环境的生命形式。当地的穆斯塔法人已驯养了一种大型硬壳节肢动物。这些穆斯塔法熔岩蚤可以在熔岩流淌的坚硬地表或这颗火山行星灼热的岩石上行走。

So simple and dismissive is the name lava flea -- a name given it by outlanders since the native term is completely unpronounceable to most humanoids -- that few would guess that this creature opened up the world to the Mustafarians.
熔岩蚤这个名字太简单、太不起眼了——这个名字是外乡人起的,因为对大多数人形种族来说,称呼这种生物的当地术语完全无法读出——很少有人能猜到,穆斯塔法人能探索他们的世界,全靠这种生物。

Like the sentient Mustafarians, the lava flea evolved underground, in the cooler hollows of geologically dormant mountains. The lava flea life cycle begins in a larval state, as worm-like borers with crystalline exoskeletons. These writhing worms, about half-a-meter in length, gobble up mineral rich rock-dust from inner caverns, using acidic enzymes to break down the rock into needed nutrients. Within a year, these worms grow to almost a full meter, and encase themselves inside a hard crystalline cask to pupate. Within a month, they emerge as a six-legged flea.
跟智慧生物穆斯塔法人一样,熔岩蚤在地下较冷的地质休眠山洞里进化。熔岩蚤的生命周期始于幼虫期,即一种像蠕虫般的蛀虫,拥有结晶质外骨骼。这些扭动的蠕虫大约半米长,从洞窟中吞食富含矿物质的岩粉,用酸性酶把岩石分解为必需的营养。一年内,这些蠕虫会差不多长到一米,然后把自己包裹在结晶质茧内等待化蛹。一个月内,它们将成为六条腿的蚤。

Young lava fleas are only a meter tall at first, but by feeding on soft rocks, they are able to metabolize nutrients directly from the cooling lava through an armored feeding tube. As they grow, they molt, shedding aside their protective shells. The native northern Mustafarians used these discarded shells as armor when they took their first tentative steps beyond their sheltered caves. The insulation and armor offered by the shells allowed the Mustafarians to explore the surface. By domesticating the highly mobile creatures, the Mustafarians began to expand their domain.
小熔岩蚤一开始只有一米高,但通过吃软岩,它们能用一根有保护的饲管直接从冷却的熔岩中吸收营养。随着它们的生长,它们会蜕皮,它们的保护壳将掉落。当地北方的穆斯塔法人试探性地走出他们居住的洞穴时,就把这些蜕下的虫壳用作盔甲。虫壳的隔热性和防护性使穆斯塔法人能探索行星表面。通过驯养这种高度灵活的生物,穆斯塔法人开始扩张他们的领地。

Despite their bulky appearance, lava fleas are agile. They are light enough to walk atop a fragile cooling crust of a slow lava river, and their powerful legs can leap up to 30 meters in a single bound, completely clearing more active lava flows.
尽管外形笨重,但熔岩蚤很轻巧。流速缓慢的熔岩流上往往覆盖有脆弱的冷却层。熔岩蚤的体重就轻到足以走上这种冷却层。它们强大的腿能一次跳30米高,完全跃过流速较急的熔岩流。

Though modern technology has come to Mustafar courtesy of the Techno Union and the Galactic Empire, the Mustafarians, for the most part, eschew the mechanical repulsorlift conveyances preferred by offworlders. They trust the lava flea to get them to their destination, and having witnessed many mechanical breakdowns on Mustafar -- and their invariably fatal consequences -- their reasoning is sound.
拜技术联盟和银河帝国所赐,现代科技已来到穆斯塔法,但大多数穆斯塔法人比较排斥外乡人更喜欢使用的反重力机械交通工具。他们相信只有熔岩蚤才能把他们带到目的地。目睹了多起发生在穆斯塔法的机械故障——及其一如既往的致命后果——后,他们有充分的理由不使用反重力装置了。

Some attempts have been made to spread the lava flea offworld, but this has met with limited success. The specific minerals that the flea thrives on are too expensive to replicate or ship off-planet, and the biological process that metabolizes those minerals renders them worthless, thus limiting attempts to recycle the material. There are reports of crime lords and other unscrupulous sectors dabbling in larval borer trade, using the acid-filled pre-flea worms as ghastly means of torture and corpse-disposal.
有人设法将熔岩蚤引入其它星球,但鲜有成功。熔岩蚤赖以生存的特殊矿物质太昂贵了,很难复制或运到其它星球,而代谢这些矿物质的生物过程会把它们变得毫无价值,从而限制了这些物质被循环利用的可能。据说有些黑帮大佬和其它毫无道德原则的星区会涉足幼虫贸易,把熔岩蚤充满酸液的幼虫当作可怕的拷问和尸体处理工具。

幕后

The lava flea evolved out of various inhospitable creature designs generated for Episode III. Sometimes nicknamed a "magma mite," the lava flea also was informally known as the "Jun bug," named after its concept designer, Sang Jun Lee.
熔岩蚤是从许多为《第三部》设计的生物中发展出来的,这些生物都生存在不适宜居住的环境下。熔岩蚤有时被昵称为“岩浆小虫”,也被非正式地称为“君虫”,因为其概念设计者是李桑君(音译)。
