This is one of the main reasons I felt it was necessary to perform my cryogenic experimentation. I have found myself between a rock and a hard place; if I proceeded as normal, at some point I’d have to drop everything to stop the Pkunk from reaching the Yehat, but on the other hand, if I simply went straight over and used the final persuasion, I’d be out of luck the next time they decided to migrate. I will admit my solution is simply a stall tactic, so I’m therefore optimistically hoping I’ll find an alternative before time runs out for our bird-brained friends. Who knows? Maybe I'll find some Fruit Loops to give them during my travels!!krulle wrote:Yeah. Go ahead and try. Even your fast starship will be taxed doing a mission all around the map and be back in time to catch the Pkunk going back. Think you can find a solution for that, especially with your track record of visiting every planet, moon, and solar system?
I'm looking forward to see how you solve this conundrum.
And no, I won't spoiler you by telling you whether it is possible or not.
But do pack an suffient amount of fuel cells!
Now that all of this Pkunk stuff is behind me for now, I already have some ideas for how to proceed, but I’ll get into that in more detail after I attempt to solve the problem of somebody showing up and ending the ZFP’s Frungy season a little earlier than expected. For now, I’ll add that I’m depending on the Melnorme for fuel refills, and I’m planning on travelling much further than before… perhaps much, much further.
I’m also planning on investigating the mysterious hole in space that the Melnorme and Spathi told me about. It’s just a hunch, but I suspect there may be a crucial link between that dimensional portal, the Arilou, and the ability to jump from place to place, as told to me by the Pkunk:
“[…] Anyway, I see in your future, that you will be jumping across the galaxy through dimensional doorways which are at your beck and call. This ability you shall receive from a mysterious, and yet somehow I sense, lovable alien race, called ArilouLaleelay, or LalilouArilay, or LoopylooHappyday, or something like that. […]”
If I’m able to procure something to that effect, it should greatly cut down on my travel times. Also, I’ll still be able to search systems and planets with a fine-tooth comb, but as always, I’ll have to do so via the time portal reset method, and only when I’m following up on any pertinent leads. However, I have a feeling I won’t be doing as much scouring as I had to perform while I was intently searching Mycon space for egg shells.
