Regarding the application itself, I would advise the author to read the lore that is currently written up on the server wiki. See if you can achieve a better grasp of the culture and mannerisms of the species, and flesh the character out a bit further, perhaps by outlining a defining event in their life. An application is OOC, so there's really not much need to keep their motivations a secret.

Hi, hello, salutations, and Namaste. Regarding/disregarding some of the above comments. I want to help out a little with your required two-paragraph description.

Start with stating their name, where they're from, what their occupation is going to be on the station. Tell a bit about their background, you can even detail some parts as OOC information. Remember that a workplace wouldn't hire an active criminal or someone who has loads of notes on their security record that would disqualify them. Talk about their family maybe, personality traits, special little quirks to make your character stand out a little besides being a Skrell. Don't go too overboard here. Lots of people do, I will admit I do sometimes.

Just remember the golden rule of character creation: K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, silly. Character development will move on from there.
