How do I save the Zoq-Fot-Pik?
« on: September 12, 2004, 06:54:52 am »

How am I supposed to save the Zoq-Fot-Pik after getting the distress call? About a month after my save, their circle on the star map disappears, and I am assuming they are annihilated at that time. When I go to their home planet, the only thing hovering over it is a Kohr-Ah ship, even though their circle is still on the star map. Am I supposed to eliminate that ship to save them? If so, how? Should I load my Precursor vessel with weapons and such?

Yes you eliminate the Kohr-Ah ship.  And probably the best way to do it is Fwiffo if you still have him around.

Loading the Vindicator with lots of weapons is never a losing idea, though, if you've got enough RU and Credits at this point to get something respectable. For me something respectable requires at least having access to tracking systems; it takes a while to upgrade the Vindi's speed and turning to a decent level, and till then dumbfiring at enemy ships requires a lot of slowly moving around in the field of fire, presenting a big juicy target.

If you can get two fusion blasters and some ATS's, though, blowing away the Marauder should be a nice slice of tasty cake.

Don't forget about regenerating facilities, all of these and better weapons can be bought at the local Melnorme-Mart down the street at alpha centauri.  Tongue

That's of course if you want to spent the time to save them. Nothing bad happens if the ZFP are wiped out. ... Except no more Frungie Championchips next year.

Enh, they're a source of useful information, and their ships can be fun to play with in some situations. Also, if you beat the Kohr-Ah, you get four Stingers for free (which are probably best used by scrapping them for RU, but still).

C'mon, you don't want to be the kind of heel who'd abandon the poor little guys, would ya?

I only do that once I know I have the money and tech to make the Vindicator a maxed warship.

They are still wiped.
I answered the call and killed green ship. They were happy and gave me 4 their ships.
That means mission complete?

Some time later, I noticed by accident that I cannot build their ships anymore. I looked at the map and circle is gone too.
I went to investigate and found their homeworld litterd with wrecks. Everyone killed.

Why? They called again and I was away from starbase for too long? Not the entire month, I sure.

Linux version. 0.7.0.

What was the date? 

Current date is OCT22 Y2159
Circle disappeared may be a little earlier.

What I did lately:  I finally outfitted my mothership properly - Hellbores, furnaces, point defence and such, and gave a green UQms some beating.
May be it caused black UQms to go to rampage? Gray circle moves all over the place and now they present even in Sol, although they already lost some ships here ...
