Anyone else like this sort of quazi-pretentious, grandiose, unnecessarily complex music?  Genesis?  Pink Floyd?  King Crimson?  Yes?  ...No?

Starcraft Ghost, perhaps?

That would be an awesome idea.  But think of how gigantic it would be, especially if they hand-crafted every city.  I mean, WoW is just one planet, but dozens of colonized planets?  Each with lots of cities?  It would just be ridiculous.

I say start with a few races, like three.  Maybe Earthling (where your missions would be to maintain the starbase or whatever), Arilou (where your missions would be to protect the Earthling settlements and such) and Ur-Quan/Kohr-Ah (where your missions would be confining/destroying human uprisings).  Or maybe three completely unrelated races.  Like Yehat, Supox, Spathi.  Then add more year after year, or with expansions, or what have you.

There also would have to be a marvellous gameplay system.  Unique like.  

Or... we could take the title of this thread the other way and discuss... that's right... a StarCraft MMORPG!

[...]JMS [...]

JMS... Jay Moldenhauer-Salazar?

Let's see... sci fi series... how about Clone High?  Does that count?  I mean, the whole cloning-famous-dead-people-from-their-skeletons is pretty sci-fi to me.  And Butlertron?  ...or whatever his name was...?  Come on.  Totally Science Fiction at its best.

I just thought of two more, albeit less substantial than Vader:

The Triffids from... well, I think they speak for themselves.




EDIT: Awesome.  Fifth post and I've stirred discussion!

This thread may be old news or whatnot, but I thought I might give my two cents.

My favorite SciFi villain - and, indeed, of anything ever (tied, perhaps, with Shylock from Merchant of Venice)- is Darth Vader.  Not only because he's big, scary, super-powered, merciless, and James Earl Jones, but also because he's more than one-dimensional.  He wants to make Luke join the dark side because it's the evil thing to do, and as far as he's concerned, he's all evil.  But he has some hidden emotion for his son that not even he's aware of...
7  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Ye olde summer music festival thread on: June 28, 2005, 10:06:29 am
There's a fairly prominent music festival here in Montreal.  It's called the International Jazz Festival.  It's great fun.  Me pap plays there yearly.  Victor Wooten was there - I think it was last year.  Anyways, so yeah, lots of people come here for that.  Everyone should flock to Montreal! >=D
8  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Favorite SciFi Quote on: June 28, 2005, 09:59:10 am
I like this one because of how badly delivered it was:
"I've been from one side of galaxy to the other.  I've seen a lot of strange things.  But I've not seen anything that'd make me believe there's one all-powerful... Force controlling.... everything." —Han Solo

Ah, Han Solo quotes...
"Jedi Knight!  I'm out of it for a little while and everyone gets dillusions of grandeur..."

"Hey!  Point that thing someplace else!"

(Bounty Hunter: I've been looking forward to this for a long time...)
"Yes... I'll bet you have!" *Shoots him*

"Snakes... why did it have to be snakes?" wait a minute...
9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: Mac OS X Voices Won't Work =( on: June 27, 2005, 05:18:04 am
Right!  Thanks.  I got it figured out.  Thanks for your help.
10  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Mac OS X Voices Won't Work =( on: June 26, 2005, 11:57:04 pm
Uh, sorry if this issue has been addressed, or if I'm a complete dumbass, but I just upgraded from v 0.3 and now the voices won't work.  I downloaded the file and everything.  I put them in the same folder... in different folders... nothing'll work.  Won't you pleeeeease please help me? (help me, help meeeee oooh!)=(
