Welcome to the club of the mad Spathi killing machines. Really, only their cowardice keeps them from taking over the galaxy. (or maybe they're just lazy.)

And it's called shattered for a reason. Be prepared for an emergency blast-off. And have lots of crew. Or proper modifications to your lander.

Hint: search in the giant maw of the hungry dragon. (Um, sorry, I am in a weird mood.)

Easy version of the hint: (read only if you want to.) Enter space of the race most feared by all. In there, you can find what you seek.

Sure, welcome to the forums.  Smiley
Come on in, take a seat, have a drink and make yourself comfortable.

It would be interesting, but I can see a problem. You need an actual captain of the race to pilot the ship, so you can't just pick up an empty hulk floating around and start blowing up the galaxy (one of the reasons why you stop building Spathi Eluders after a while). But you can always pull of some freaky superhuman computerhacking after which you find a drver's manual or something. Tongue

And I've always wanted to fly an x-form in story mode, so sounds cool.

Thraddash and Syreen would be so deadly! I just nearly got a heartattack trying to imagine a Traddash in Syreen outfit. Cheesy

But would the Spathi beat them up?

,,All non Ur-Quan must be cleansed. That's what the great teacher said. Hey, I know, let's cleanse ourselves. Yippee!"

I think it would be enough to say that you can't predict what for bodies they might have. Tongue

Orz: ,,Time for happy *camping*. Very *Frumple*. Uh, just what the hell are we saying?"
Hmm, those are the only ones I can think of.

But what about the Pkunk? They'll make everyone absolutely crazy with their psychic weirdness so no one will watch what they're doing.

Nah, what am I telling. The Kohr-Ah will simply cleanse the stadium. With no opponents, victory will go to them by default.

Hi, everybody, I'm back! (Now start panicking!)

Now that I think of it, the Avenger has always been my favourite. The Annihilator looks freaking weird anyway. (It's a big laughing face! AAAHHH!!! Make it stop!) But the Gas bill would be huge (and it would be a bit hard to find a gas station in the first place. At least one that wouldn't try to blow you up.) Um, ok, so please change my order to Avenger with Disruption shields, luxurious interior (don't worry, it doesn't need to be so big.) and a magical E-115 production facility that feeds the newly made E-115 directly to the engines, the Plasma beams, or to my cabin. (Even my flying suit will need a refill from time to time.)

Merry, I wonder just what Santa has been drinking. Roll Eyes
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Favorite SciFi Vehicle. on: December 29, 2005, 06:19:11 pm
I would love to have my very own personal X-com flying suit. Preferably with builtin motion detector, personal disruption shield and cloaking device. (Ok, the last two are from about eighty years later than that thing, but I don't see much problems with the motion detector, seeing as how it is a small handheld device. And they did dump the disruption shield and cloaking device on suits that were never designed to handle them either.)

But that would probably fit better in coolest sci-fi body armour. So if it has to be a vehicle, I would want an Anihilator. (X-com again) Infinite fuel, though armour, lots of space for stuff (Think big cloaking device, disruption shields and a crew cabin rebuilt into a luxurious hut, and you get the idea) and it carries plenty of firepower in case things get nasty.
12  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: It’s about anger management. on: December 16, 2005, 10:52:04 am
Yikes, that's one hell of a story. That's manipulating people. Ok, I probably would've been annoyed myself, but I wouldn't respond like that. For one, I am too friendly. Two, I am too lazy to call that guy again. (Then again, I use a phone maybe once or twice a year. All the other times is when I pick it I up and find someone who wants to speak to my parents)

And anger management. Well, it may sound silly, but I just repeat this thought a few times in my head:,, I am void." Sounds silly, but it works. Basically, I've taken it from star control (Mycon and their void and non thing) and star trek (Vulcans). I try to shut down or at least lower my emotions. Not because I want to become a walking computer, but because I think agression, jealousy and such doesn't help anything. You either go out and beat up someone (I can't do that, I'll be honest when I say I'm a wimpy, weak coward. It has kept me out of trouble though.) or you jell at people and get a sore throat, or you do nothing and get filled up by it.

Ok, that's enough of psychological talk. Time for breakfast.

First off, I know nothing about coding. (I get dizzy whenever one of those peoples at school sudenly start talking in a coding langauge. You know, with much define varables and such. Huh)

But, you could try to first find where the data of the Mmhrmr (or something, they've got a really hard name.) and the data of the probe. Then copy and paste the probe somewhere else. Give it a new name, such as Melnorme remote control probe. (You control the thing from the VIndicator, so no problems with bad programming that causes the thing to zap ships apart in search of raw materials.)
Replace the weapon data of the probe with the missiles of the Y-form. I think those would be just the weapons it needs. Long range, light damage. They would act more as a deterrent while the probe makes its escape, cause it was meant to explore if my memory is correct, not fight. (That doesn't stop it from being a killing machine. Cheesy)

And yes, the probe was meant to use missiles for defence. The zapping thing was meant to zap asteroids for raw material used for the construction of more probes. But due to bad programming, they never got the chance to switch targets and would zap a ship in search of raw materials instead.
14  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: INTELLIGENCE INTERCEPT: Kohr-Ah/Human hybrid on: December 14, 2005, 07:39:33 pm
Oh, I love experiments! Hybrids are so nice! Wonder how she will look, though. There's quite a difference in....biologial structure between the two donors.

And, please check if you Kohr-Ah make an exception to half-filth. Wouldn't want your little hybrid to commit suicide cause she thinks that's the right thing to do. (Then again, I am filth, so what I say is not so important. Wink)
15  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: The Captain's wife??? on: December 12, 2005, 01:12:04 pm
Oh, but there are some things you can do to prevent that. Such as wearing a nice bit of armour underneath your clothes. Even nowadays we've got stuff that's quite light and could stop most of the metal. (It may be all the rage there, but I definitely won't dress up like her. I would catch a cold. Not to mention I'm male, and I would feel emberassed if I dressed up like that.)

Or, you simply hire someone else to do it. I don't know how strong a Syreen is, but I prefer not to find out personally. My muscles aren't exactly...big.

And the last precaution? A fast ship, all fuelled up. Then I can run to the other end of the galaxy. I know what happened to the Mycon when they angered the Syreen, and I don't want to be next.

And to be totally safe, it would be a hell of a  lot easier to first put a bunch of sleeping pills in her food. You can still see the colour without having to worry about anything. (with the excepton of other Syreen and security cameras)
