I agree, megamod is currently the best version if you're not going for the plain vanilla.

It should, but it's something for after Talana wakes you up, and before you get to see your grandchildren.

And no, it's not in the game.

Finally watched it fully.

As a German, I always wondered where the notion of Reiche being a Danish name came from.
It's not as if Danish use the "ei" sound like Germans do.
But interesting that they kept the correct pronunciation of "Reiche" for those who asked through the generations.


Current UQM has 4+ endings, of which 2 are merged in the final credits, as there is no reference to the non-revolution:
Death-March (you lose - you get a short talk)
you got yourself killed (you lose - unceremonious ending fading to black)
You win, with the Yehat Revolution started (you win)
You win, without the Yehat REevolution (you win, same ending as above)
Some in-betweens, during the death-march but you still destroyed the Sa-Matra (you win, same ending as the other "wins").
You slave-trader - you go to court (you win, but yeah, this ending has nothing else - whatever it takes)

But it indeed feels as if it's only one ending. (as "you lose" is not an ending a player accepts), and all others lead to the same slide-show, with the same credits.

On the forums, there's a discussion about how the Loroi don't trust Alex, as Alex could be a planted mole by the Umiak.
Same for any Loroi that has been on an Umiak-occupied planet.

Recently, the suggestion popped up, that Fireblade, who was on an occupied planet, may have experienced stuff by the Umiak which makes her Sanzai susceptible for Alex to be sensed.

Or it's indeed just her strong sending, and her opennes to be received by all, because the Loroi have never made the experience that any non-Loroi is listening in.

Cool, thank you!

are out too...

Definitely, Alex receives information from some Loroi (likely Fireblade), including interpretative information about what he's seeing.

In the forum, the author uploaded an image with annotations:

And now we're on to the next stage:

The shuttle has been towed in.
Will our band of misfits now commandeer an Umiak ship?

The flash in the last panel, and Fireblade's look at Alex...

"This is how real Warriors do it!"

Page 206 is out.

I wonder what Tempo is doing.
And how often a ship with her and Red Fury (Fireblade) has been boarded and how much experience she has manipulating the Umiak's exoskeleton and/or mind.

In Star Control 3, a.k.a. the "non-canon game", you can create colonies. But not in UQM (SC2).

That's what I fear when joining beta-testing groups, that you might get spoilered a bit (lot).

And the slaughter will begin!

And an update!
Fred and I have been working on UQM2 full time since Fall of last year.  So far it's just the two of us, with Fred working loooong hours developing a cool new designer-friendly scripting system for gameplay, and me reading old sci-fi, drinking Mai Tais and trying to make something coherent out of almost 30 years of story notes and design sketches.


Wowsies!

There's beef coming up!

Alex needs a serious reminder of the telekinetic abilities of the "Unsheathed".
And he will get it as an observer now.
