Title: Captain Tanaka...
Post by: gentlemad on February 28, 2005, 04:24:52 am
Hi cosmonauts...
I went to Delta Gorno to catch a Shofixty Male and I met Captain Tanaka.
I've tried to talk but he only wants to kill me. ???
What a Idiot, He was alone in a ridicolous ship.  ;D
I tried to escape but it was expensive (in fuel) so I had to destroy his ship. :'(
Is there a way to kill not him and take him in my fleet?
(so i have shofixty male)

The key is to be patient and persistant. He's flying in an old and barely functioning ship. You just have to give him a chance to realize you're not who he thinks you are.

Yes, it will be expensive (in fuel). No, there is no shortcut or "easy" way of doing it.

Also, regarding how a Shofixti could survive for a full twenty years inside a small, damaged spacecraft with no ostensible supplies, etc.

With all apologies to Best Brains, cue music!

If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts,
(fa la la!)
Just keep telling yourself, "It's just a game, I should really just relax"


;)

Don't worry, his brother will appear later. Just be sure not to kill him. Just keep talking. Yeah, it'll take a lot of fuel.

You can escape even if you have no fuel. You'll just have to talk to a certain interstellar tanker ship once you leave the system...

Err... I don't think that has anything to do with the problem at hand.

It was just a clue on how to revive the Shofixti species (yeah, there's females...with a certain vux admiral...).    ;)

Oh, I see. Not just plotting for him to wind up out of fuel on the vux homeworld, eh? :P
