Re: What do you think the New Alliance did with the Ur-quan?

Taking combat effectiveness into account, probably not. Unless an Intruder gets to use its warp-in feature, a Cruiser will pretty much roll right over it. Avengers and Eluders are far more effective. The Ur-quan destroy or confiscate the fleets of slaveshielded races (and it seems like they're pret...

Re: What do you think the New Alliance did with the Ur-quan?

I think the Ur-Quan picked the Spathi and Ilwrath because they both really had little vested interest in trying to harm Humans (beyond the Ilwarth desire to sacrifice them, but that extends to everyone and the Ilwarth were pretty well cowed by the Ur-Quan anyway). The Androsynth and VUX both had fa...

Re: What do you think the New Alliance did with the Ur-quan?

Yeah, making the VUX stupid bumbling backstabbers was dumb. They always seemed to me like the most disciplined slave race except maybe the Androsynth. They would have been the best choice to guard the moon, really.

Re: What do you think the New Alliance did with the Ur-quan?

I can see the VUX reluctantly joining the New Alliance (or at least unofficially helping them) if there is some massive new threat to deal with and they have no other choice, but probably not under normal circumstances.

Re: What do you think the New Alliance did with the Ur-quan?

I think it's more likely that the majority of the Kzer-za would join with the Kohr-ah than that they would become peaceful. From their perspective, Zelnick essentially made a pact with the devil to defeat them (by joining with the Dnyarri, however temporary). Both types of Ur-quan are already deeply...

Differences between SC1 and SC2

Of course there's the really obvious stuff like less ships, worse graphics/sound, and the strategic mode instead of the adventure, but I'm referring to more subtle differences. Such as: - The combat arena is smaller (a fusion bolt reaches over halfway across the screen!) - The Umgah's cone is wider ...
