ZOMG REAL SC3

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

This is indescribably good news. Not going to hold my breath, since it doesn't look like they have any kind of timetable, but I am eagerly anticipating what they come up with just the same.

Some of the things they confirmed are gonna be in the game seem a bit odd to me... like the VUX Beast.

Why? There was always only one, jsut because you transported it off-world, and released it elsewhere, it does not need to have died.... I'm sure it found enough to eat down there.
I wonder who created it in the first place....

Since the Spathi knew about it, it may have been another "prank" of our beloved chatty blobs of meat.

And I wonder if an archeologic team would find evidence of other civilisations on the planet you found the Beast, or evidence that the Beast is not native to that ecological habitat...

There must have been more than one.

Ancient information implies population, as there are no immortals in SC2 universe, as far as I can tell. Even the Slylandro and Chenjesu aren't said to be immortal.

First Star Control:Origins, now a true successor to Star Control 2! This is amazing news!

I've been coming to "The pages of now and forever", every now and then, signed petitions, etc. I am so happy this is actually happening!

I am a *happy camper*!

Indeed. And likely on more planets than one.
Maybe those are the left-over precursors?
(If the precursors ever were just "one race", and not a group of races forming one mixed civilisation)

Also, the new sequel discussion could be moved to the thread Eth created: http://www.star-control.com/community/v ... f=8&t=1255

I split this off because it deserves to be a top-level post. Congratulations, Krulle, you have a thread in a mod-only-thread zone
