Title: Spaffi - Didja know?

Spathi Eluders are great when used against Ur-Quan Dreadnoughts... you just keep running away (horizontally so you dont crash into planets you dont know about) and keep firing BUTT missiles... Ive killed 11 without dying so far... oh yeah Utwig Juggers are also fairly effective

Yeah, they work pretty well against Ur-Quan Marauders as well. Same basic strategy too.

But against the Kohr-Ah it's important to keep them shooting at you. If they don't, then the old blades will stick around and you might run into them.

Actually, a good spathi fighter ( with fwiffo only ) can beat the entire sa-matra guards alone!(ALL. Not just the 6) You will need to beat like !11(1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x10x11) ur-quan kzer-za and 2 koar-ah ( I have no clue why....) So it will take you about... one week at the best time. Give it a shot. I did it without falling asleep in the 14th try! ;D

With me, I always had equal amounts of Kohr-Ah and Kzer-Za to destroy... But my Vindicator captained by BSS chief in office Fwiffo did it all.

Yea, Fwiffo is pretty much the honorary BSS leader, even though he's the only one to be in it, and only because when Zelnick finds him it's either death or join...

Scared into being fearless. Heh.

11! = 39,916,800. At one Ur-Quan per SECOND that is 462 years.... nice wild goose chase... except that it's not really that many. If it were, that would be an annoying trick! You are right about their beatability, though. Re-crew after fights, or be very good including avoiding the planet

btw... silly number trick: 0!! =1!! = 0! = 1! = 1, 2!! = 2! = 2, 3!! = 6! = 720, 4!! = 24! = a little over Avogadro's number.

Also, the ring of guards does contain many more Kzer-Za than Kohr-Ah. Presumably because they hold the Sa-matra for now...
