Re: So what WOULD happen to each alien race after SC2?

And you'd be completely wrong in your disagreement, as per the Mycon's own statement. The Ur-Quan where unvoidable Non, so they joined them until they could find the weakness that allowed them to void the non. They said so themselves. So with the Quans weakened, the Mycon could turn on them. And sin...

Re: A thought on the slaveshield.

It could be that it is some sort of forcefield that takes energy once and then re-configures it into a stable forcefield that lasts a long time without additional energy. That is a valid second option. Though it might also make the slaveshield very vulnerable to anything that would disrupt whatever ...

Re: Funny thing about the Melnorme Probe...

Kind of seems to me people overestimate the probe! Not to mention people seem to assume the Melnorme (Who ARE more advanced then the humans) couldn't nonetheless have moments of incompetence. Technically if the human race one day has technology twenty centuries ahead of what we have today, but is ot...

A thought on the slaveshield.

Amongst the various ponderations I had about Star Control 2 lately one was about the Slaveshield. Namely... What is the slaveshields energy source! It occurred to me that the slaveshield could not be powered by anything planetbased. Because the locals on the planet could potentially find some method...

Re: So what WOULD happen to each alien race after SC2?

I'm not sure the Arilou would be inclined to help with the Quans. They have a very 'Orange and Blue' morality. As seen by this quote (on the Dnyarri) ( You now possess one of the most powerful creatures in the history of your galaxy and also one of the most evil... as you judge evil. ) The Arilou I ...

Re: Funny thing about the Melnorme Probe...

Perhaps not. Obviously not even. But I think I mentioned that. Even so the full program CLEARLY lacks any hardcoding to prevent it from targeting a ship for breaking it down. That and if-type statements don't do so hot if none of the possibilities apply. (Such as there not being any targets at all.)...

Funny thing about the Melnorme Probe...

I've been learning programming the last few years, and having recently gone through some refreshment lessons (Which I'm happy to say went very well) && recently going over Star Control dialogue again, I noticed something funny about the Melnorme Probe. The Slylandro note about the probe: The program...

Re: The etymology of 'Unzervalt'

Well there's alot of jewish people living in the US Borscht Belt, and they'd have anglicized jewish last names... like Zelnick. So could be that the Unzervalt colonists where at least partially Jewish-American. (Probably not WHOLLY, or Unzervalt would have been named Aundzervelt.) Most likely amongs...

So what WOULD happen to each alien race after SC2?

This is just gonna be a huge ramble, so... people who dislike such things should not bother I think. I just feel like talking about SC2, and the question of what might happen with various races. Thing is... much as everyone (Oh myself included.) would be curious about this. I'm not sure if I where t...

The etymology of 'Unzervalt'

I've lately been getting into Star Control 2 again, and been thinking a bit about various details. Actually mostly about the Arilou and The Orz, and the Milieu and about what I think would be the perfect sequel. But also about small things. Now I remember in the early days of finding the first inter...
