So, we're in the far north-west system. Wow, there's a lot of bio-data there.

Explored the next one south… not really anything interesting. Low on fuel and confused, headed back to Alpha Apodis to get fuel from Greenish.

On the way back, talked to two thraddash who told us about the Rainbow world and ZEX's Beauty, and fought a probe which started close enough we lost two crew in a battle which went on for a silly-long time after.

We had so much biodata we got the last tech, filled the tanks, and were able to buy current events info up to the point that Greenish pointed us straight at Beta Corvi. Which we'd already explored. He also told us about the Utwig Super-bomb (though not where the Utwig ARE), the Umgah subverting the Ilwrath, the dimensional portal, and the Dreadnought on Alpha Pavonis.

We reverted to save from right before we bought the information. Then we picked up the rainbow world and then headed straight for Beta Corvi… not even bothering to mine out the rest of Epsilon Draconis (tried the rainbow world but it was a bit dicey even with max shields. Lost two crew).

After wandering around Beta Corvi for 8 minutes, daughter finally suggested visiting the gas giant. Got a little explanation but then had to stop playing; didn't save, but now they know where the Slylandro are.

OKAY!

We talked with the Slylandro, almost all the way. Didn't press about the glowy bits, didn't get details about their biology and ecology.

Headed down to Alpha Pavonis, took a while but found the dreadnought.

Headed down to the 2 blue stars the Slylandro mentioned. Got a good bit of mining / bio collection done (nearly filled tanks of good materials), and picked up rainbow world.

Headed down to where we expect the dimensional portal to open, got there on the 15th. On the 16th, an Arilou dropped by. Exhausted the first conversation tree.

Explored a little Quasispace. Saved and reloaded a few times to explore. Found the Ilwrath portal and the Utwig portal, then finally noticed Fayalaralfali and went there. Had one conversation, got the spawner. Took the nearest - which was to near the center portal - then found the home portal. Went home, saved before docking, noticed that we got some Arilou ships, and we could have gotten more if we'd ditched some stingers first. So we didn't save after that, so we can do it better later.

Cool.

Your report and Troglodyte's log demonstrate how differently SC can be played... :)

Back at it again! First we sold off some ZFP ships to make room for the Arilou we were about to pick up.

Then we found out that the Spathi left!

Then we set our fleet to:
2 Cruisers
3 Eluders
2 Nemeses
3 Skiffs
1 Torch
1 empty

We also bought 2 hellbore cannons and 3 shiva furnaces, displacing the 2 blasters and 3 cargo bays (leaving 3).

10k RU left over, so we're basically done gathering RU.

Rather than, say, visiting Epsilon Gruis and the Spathi, we headed down to check out those Pkunk the Ilwrath had referred to before. Epsilon Giclas, then Beta. Passed up base-metal mining. Met the Pkunk, and were forwarded to their homeworld. Visited, got the clear spindle, one Fury, and some fun conversation.

Portalled and went exploring. Ended up near Arcturus. After a long debate over whether to go exploring or not, they headed to Arcturus and found the Burvix civilization, and the caster, and a lot of bio data. Took some losses gathering it up (almost entirely from lightning).

Man, this brings back childhood memories. I used to play with my dad all the time, even, at one point, doing the "say all the evil things first" challenge with most of the races (orz, alilou, druuge, pkunk, thraddash, and I think yehat)! Not to mention losing around two dozen landers (I'm a sloppy pilot) and losing two weeks to the talking pet.
