... Now I have to ask if you'd like to *play* with me. XD

I think that *playing* with deviant schoolgirls online might get me in to all sorts of trouble with my girlfriend. So unfortunately, no. BUT WE CAN STILL BE BFFS YAY!!

Hey, what happens on Alpha Cerenkov, STAYS on Alpha Cerenkov, if ya know what I mean, and I think you do.

But BFFs is fine by me~  :-*

Lukipela and Alana whisper (OR SHOUT!!!) sweet nothings

Get a room, you two.

Anyhow, I don't think you've got what she needs, Lukipela. You may be short a tentacle or two.

I thought it was pretty bad... not that the English version is much better.

Humanoid boys are fine. Tentacles are just a lovely bonus. ^_~

Uh... I mean, I like Admiral ZEX for his personality. Right. >.> Personality.

It's surprising that someone went through the ZEX dialogue years ago and got incredibly turned on by it. I don't think that's what the writers were intending. Even the Talana sex scene came off more as humorous than pornographic.

Yeah, you don't even see them having sex. You can't even tell what they're doing!

Welcome to the internet, mwahahahahah. :3  Authorial intent has nothing to do with it!  Well, almost nothing.  Besides--the dialog is more of a seed crystal.

A seed crystal is a small crystal that you put in a supersaturated solution to create a much larger crystal.  The solute crystalizes around the seed.  (There are other ways to do it, but they're not relevant to my metaphor so I'll ignore them.)

Well, then, why did you ask?  If you want the process explained, you can google it.

Octal's rather hit the nail on the head.

ZEX's original dialog isn't innately sexy-- but it is extremely interesting. It sparks a seed of "Oh, really? I want to know more about this character!" because he is, like all the aliens in SC, from a Planet of Hats-- but his hat has so very flamboyantly fallen off, and in such an intriguing way, that learning more about him and the VUX is genuinely fun.

The sparked interest leads to a spark of affection-- sure, he tried to kidnap the player character for sex, but he's so charming and humble, and he probably thought it was the only way to fulfill a dream he's had longer than the player character has been alive! You can't really blame a guy with his background, can you?

And the sparked affection turns to a vested interest, and a desire to make the character happy in some way, to see how he'd react if this or that happened, what this Sub-commander DAX fellow is like if he's loyal enough to serve so closely with the xenophilic Admiral, what kind of undesirables fled the mainstream of VUX society to serve under ZEX's protection and acceptance...

And then, sometimes, you get someone who goes, "You know what? I love this character so much, I don't care that he's a xenophilic green-and-scaly possibly amphibious tentacle alien. He's awesome to the point where I what he looks like just kinda adds to my liking! I mean, the VUX aren't that bad looking. And if I met face-to-face with ZEX-- well, I'd probably die, since Redux Worlds have ammonia-methane atmospheres-- but aside from that, he could seduce me and I totally wouldn't fight back."

[/teal deer]

Basically what I'm saying is, his dialog sparks interest which eventually leads to interest in and affection for the character.

...

Of course, in my case, I saw the end result first and worked backwards to playing the game. XD But still.

Under other circumstances I would not be averse to swapping hot biodata with you if you catch my drift. However, my current non-renegotiable contract does not allow for illicit transactions with third parties. And to be honest, It's such a good contract that I have no desire for such things. But i guess we'll always have Cerenkov (Play it again Sam).

What I lack in tentacles I make up for in other ways.

I agree. it's something I can't quite wrap my head around. And I suspect that may be just as well.

Is there something in the text that says he wants to kidnpa him for sex, rather than just freeze him down and put him in the museum next to the frozen shofixti maidens?

It's pretty clearly implied that the good admiral has a sexual attraction to earthlings.
