Yeah, I'm inclined to disbelieve the authenticity of that quote. It sounds like something a cartoon supervillain would say, rather than a real person.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

This is kind of funny to me... I've fallen way behind in reading through this thread, so I don't know what's been happening... The last part I'm caught up with is from February 22, 2018, when you had just sent the Ilwrath at the Thraddash, three real-time months and 9 forum pages ago, but it seems t...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

One thing that can be said about fighting Ilwrath ships: They really make you realize just how many of the ships in this game have homing weapons when they suddenly don't work any more. I suddenly feel like compiling a list, so I hope you don't mind me putting it in your thread, Trog. :) (Lifted fro...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Out of that list of ships, I'd expect the Zoq Fot Pik to fare the best, since it's fast and fires in a spread that's good for uncovering the location of a cloaked ship. (I guess the AI just doesn't know how to handle it; I'm assuming you're still relying on the AI to fight your battles for you?) The...

The human prisoner being a young girl seemed to fit my head cannon You mean one of these? :) (Sorry, I couldn't resist; I'm sure you meant headcanon without a double N) As far as the girl’s origins are concerned, that is purposefully left a mystery… Was she the offspring of a captured pregnant woma...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Oh, wow... I didn't realize there was more "worship" dialogue. :o

They still had a human prisoner after twenty years? If she's a child, does this mean she was born into this and has known nothing but Ilwrath torment her whole life? Everything about this is unsettling. :(

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Regarding the Ilwrath's appearance, it could simply be that they are black on top and their underside is red. As for the lack of limbs in combat I don't know how much of the Ilwrath's dialogue you've gone through but I seem to recall talk of religious rituals that involve the grinding away of append...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Question: Is there a summary? That's quite a... substantial amount of text you've got there. I might read through it if I get the time, but I don't really have a sufficient quantity of it right now. I just skimmed it; all the coloured stuff is in-game dialogue, so if you've played the game before, ...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I do not think FF & PR3 will be on such a blistering schedule that you are in any danger of having a sequel released before you are done. Are we sure about that? The Troglodyte isn't exactly on a blistering schedule either. :P (Disclaimer: I'm just teasing, Trog; you continue at your own pace and y...
