Re: Starting a blind playthrough of Star Control Origins (with videos! No spoilers, please)

The StarBase side objectives are that, just side objectives.
They are not related to the main plot, besides being triggered by them.

IIRC, they've been added to the game later, in DLCs, so that the main plot elements of the DLC don't feel as rip-offs, and provide more playstuff....

Re: Star Control Origins Discussion (potential spoilers)

I aliens come into our Solar System, do you believe anyone else than Diplomats will take up first contact. As the aliens are non-aggressive towards Earth, why is no diplomat on board to perform the first contact? But later you also have other aliens in the Solar System, and no other ship is availabl...

Re: Star Control Origins Discussion (potential spoilers)

The game does indeed look and feel very promising. The "lander landing" mini game... is... hmm... a nice idea, but implementation could use a Mael-Num/Melnorme automatization upgrade... The planet is... too small/too curved. Imlikemthat there's continuity from watching upwards from the planet and se...

Re: Starbase Population

To quote a humorous passge of the Ultronomicon: When you've recruited 1,000 crew or more (minus the amount you've returned), the crew cost is raised by 2 RUs. If the total later comes below 1000 (by returning crew), the crew cost goes back down by 2. There is no actual limit to the amount of crew yo...

But on the page "UQM" , there's a photo of FF and PR3 stating "After 30 years, our last day at Toys for Bob. (2021)", which s...

Re: What happens when the Ur-quan leave a region of space? Paul Reiche answers

That is indeed very interesting, but as long as the Kzer-Za are present, war between Thralls is discouraged. And then they do this, which seems to cause exactly that... Also, when do they install the "devices"? I wonder if Earth has it installed too, when the Kzer-Za shot everything older than "n" y...
