Re: Progress in Star Control II

Well, who else is dead? You could perhaps still pull off a Pyrhhic victory, just grabbing the three things you need and running for it, without having to properly complete the quests... if you know where the stuff is. And I'm pretty sure you can skip the scene in the dark if you don't ask '... what...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

I found the Syreen fleet at Epsilon Camelopardalis, the first planet , literally the last place I had left to look.The Syreen I was escorting in their shuttle went to their ships and flew back to Betelgeuse. When I got there Commander Talana told me that they would make a ruse for the Mycon. What sh...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

Yes, keep track of every hint! A few things in the game are only hinted at once or twice, and if you miss them, you might never figure it out. Basically, whenever someone mentions a star system, write it down. Whenever someone mentions an item, write it down. Also, based on what I've read, you have...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

I think I have found the beast in the Lyncis system. It's the one that looks like the "locked topic" icon on this board, right? It was the only unique creature I could find. That Admiral ZEX offered no clue about its appearance didn't exactly help. The trouble is, the Kohr-Ah have already killed the...

What do you have?
It's well into 2159. I have a clear spindle, two Mycon eggshells, an Ur-Quan hyperspace drive, and a Syreen shuttle. I guess that's not nearly enough, is it?

Winning Star Control II?

As far as I understand, I've now come close to the point where I have to try to win the game. So how does one actually try to win Star Control II? I assume merely surviving against the Kohr-Ah isn't going to be enough. From what I've read from on-line reviews of the game, winning the game requires e...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

As I recall the Beast will just show up as another lifeform. It isn't the only one on the planet, but you will know which one it is as soon as you see it :lol: The fleet will show up as an energy signal when you find the right planet OK, I will keep trying to find them. The only trouble is, now tha...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

I just came to think, might the reason why I am unable to find either the fabulous beast or the Syreen ships be that it's already well into 2159 in game time and the Kohr-Ah have won their war against the Kzer-Za and started their killing spree? For all I know, both the fabulous beast and the Syreen...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

Am I supposed to get a sign immediately when I land on a planet containing either the fabulous creature or the Syreen Penetrator fleet? I landed on every single planet in the Lyncis constellation, but nothing special happened. It's the only eight-star constellation I can find on the top of the starm...

Re: Progress in Star Control II

Commander Talana said the Syreen Penetrator fleet is at most 200 standard hyperspace units away, in a system with a red or orange sun. How long is a standard hyperspace unit? Is it the same as 1 coordinate? There are quite many red or orange stars at most 200 coordinates away from Betelgeuse. I have...
