If you can get UQM working, it's well worth it.

Also, sorry that you encountered the game-changing bug when you were so far into the game :(
KYAAAAAIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!

Sometimes being rude is a good thing.
I might fire the game up and see if I can figure it out.

When we say Mycon at Beta Brahe, we don't mean any random Mycon in the system. Find the planet that's special there. Plus, wouldn't it be Epsilon Scorpii, not Beta Brahe?

I did find a "special place" for the Mycon at Beta Brahe. The Mycon did their utmost to get me to leave there. I had the chance to speak two lines: "What is so special here?" and "OK, I will leave". I have also visited Epsilon Scorpii, which the Mycon told me was the source of the Juffo-Wup, whatever that means, but so far I haven't found the exact place in the system where it's supposed to be located.

Keep looking around, there. They'll give you the plot cookie you should have gotten from the Melnorme.

OK, I found the source of the Juffo-Wup at Epsilon Scorpii, and was able to talk to the Mycon about something else than wishing peace or frying them in hot butter. They then attacked me, but I escaped from the battle, with very minor losses. Now when I went to Betelgeuse, I was able to ask Commander Talana if she knew anything about the Deep Children, and showed her my eggshell. She said they will analyse it, and if it turns out to be from the Mycon, "the Mycon shall pay dearly for their crimes".
I still haven't managed to find the creature Admiral ZEX wants, though.

I dropped a hint earlier. I won't tell you exactly where but I'll hide a better hint below:

Is this supposed to be the eight-star constellation near the top of the starmap? Lyncis, but that means "lynx", and a lynx isn't a snake. Am I supposed to find an energy signature there? I travelled to every single planet there, but didn't find any.
Also, Commander Talana told me the Syreen would analyse the Mycon eggshells I showed them. How do I know when their analysis is complete?

A long thin animal is not just a snake.

You won't necessarily find an energy signature. Once you land on the right planet, you'll know...

Try checking back with them sometime :)
