Re: Which is your favourite SC race?

You know, I've never played the game using the voice packs. Is it worth it? Depends on the race. Check out youtube to hear the voices. The Dnyarri, Utwig, Supox, VUX, Umgah and Kzer-za suck (IMO always). The Yehat can become a bit comical if you take the accent too seriously (IMO always). The Kohr-...

Re: Ur-Quan picture

This one (Kohr-Ah) is also great: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs42/f/2009/115/b/2/Star_Control_II_poster_by_Krejall_Ontaris.jpg Once again someone who interpreted them as caterpillars with an elongated worm like body (which gives it a better look than the one with the 'canon size', I think) (desktop...

Favourite SC race lines.

One per species. Here are mine. Thraddash: Some people just cannot accept the cost of progress. Ilwrath: It's been so long since I've seen a human DIE! Spathi Ruler: (answering Zelnick's query of possible reward if he finds the correct password) You get to live a little longer. (Note: If you haven't...

Re: Star Control 1+2 plot holes

All communicators in the SC universe suffer from the same glitch: you can never turn them off. On the plus side, this allows one ship captain to get vaporized, and the next to know exactly what was said so he can pick up the conversation right where it left off. On the minus, privacy is a sadly los...

Re: Ur-Quan picture

Thanks, Nuclear. When I was younger I always thought that the Ur-Quan had their whole body shown in the converse pics (a huge alien face with 4 tentacles). I never really pictured them so insectlike, until I looked up in the dictionary and saw what caterpillar means (I'm Greek, therefore English is ...

Which is your favourite SC race?

I wanted to make this a poll, but the 10-option limit severely cripples the results. Vote once, vote one.

I vote the Thraddash.

Re: Star Control 1+2 plot holes

The Biggest Plot-Hole of all: Each time you speak with an alien pilot (especially the hostile ones) and combat ensues, when you blow them up then speak with another pilot of the same race, he acts as if he was the same individual you spoke with before, even if you blew him up a few minutes ago. This...
