So are those the pre-mind-controlled Umgah?

Yes. Will edit to clarify

Pretty surely yes, the mind-controlling is announced through Hayes (when some starbase crew members simultaneously loose consciousness).
The Troglodyte over at SCDB-forum ran into this message, and interpreted it incorrectly. (http://www.star-control.com/community/viewtopic.php?p=25415#p25415)

Edit: heck, I should've checked for a new page before answering.

No, that's just from the Pkunk dying. I have gone through entire games without Hayes giving that message.

Well, at least, I think so.

confirmed by examination of source code.

I remember from my first game that both happened around the same time, so I may have confused the messages.

Especially after having finished the game, and the Pkunk having been absorbed into the Yehat culture, and not having died, I dismissed the "wrong"-message as being part of  the Pkunk SOI disappearing.

Yeah, that aspect of it confused me, too. I guess a bunch of them probably did die, and that was wrong.

My interpretation was that it was the Pkunk, not the Yehat, who did something very wrong... given how different the Yehat are at the end...

We had a bit of an interruption, as my son has shifted more towards Nexo Knights for the time being. He does keep asking things about SC at breakfast, say, so it's not dead. Just… waiting.

My oldest finished Nexo Knights a while ago.....

If you want to help him cheat, there are great online sites with nearly all "shields"

Left the system, hit a probe. Talked, nothing really new. Then didn't notice an Umgah in front of us and hit them too. Talked, fought, lost 7 crew on the flagship. Headed more in the direction the ZFP said the probes are coming from. Visited alpha, delta, and epsilon Mensae.

I am concerned that they haven't gotten the hint that the targets live in a gas giant, so we'll go RIGHT BY THEM and waste our time. Or they could be attracted by how close we're getting to Draconis and detour. If we don't head off to Draconis, we are likely to hit Alpha Pavonis. I will not aim them that way. If they alternately get detoured into the UNKNOWN, then they might pick up that hint about the probes's origin. Or perhaps a visit to Greenish at Alpha Apodis will yield the information, but probably not.

Which hints? No one has mentioned the gas giant-ness of the Slylandro.

Hi,

I am new to both this forum and Ur-Quan Masters game... just downloaded it yesterday out of curiosity... so far frustrated at my landers being blown away while collecting minerals..

Your kids drawing is soo cute!... I wish my kid would be interested in this game... but the moment I showed to him he laughed at the graphic and then went on playing roblox..

Cheers.
