	I only recently got the Dark Sun boxed set (less than a week ago),
and am just now starting to absorb it.  From what I've seen, I'd have the
Athasian Thri-Kreen be a "lost colony", from the days when Athas was an
open sphere and the Thri-Kreen still ruled.

	The Thri-Kreen used helms similar to the ones on their leafships.
It works by manipulating the gravity plane, causing the ship to "fall"
in the direction they want to go.  Spelljamming speeds are still a mystery.

	As always, YMMV.  (:
