News: Paul Reiche and Fred Ford want to continue the story they started when they created Star Control II — The Ur-Quan Masters. «Happy days and jubilation!» «But wait!» «There is something wrong here... something which makes my sheath retract and my talons ooze.» «Please, Captain, we need your help!»

I think that is about as far as that idea should go.

I do not see justification for that. It could be much faster or slower, and far more lumpy.

Also, you started at zero. Some professions are already mostly handled by AI. Humans have been relegated to second-layer responders in these roles.

This reminds me of a Heinlein article where he said how nationalism was a good thing - an incomplete thing, but a step up from being solely concerned with the individual.

Did you ever read Too Like the Lightning? That last comment reminded me of Bryar Kosala.
20  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Writing Prompt: An Eluder crewed by 29 Spathi and 1 Ilwrath on: November 30, 2018, 06:04:42 pm
I posted this on the Star Control Reddit sub, and figured I'd duplicate it here (and SCDB): Write a story inspired by the title of this thread. It doesn't need to have this as the title. There doesn't even need to literally be an Eluder with 29 Spathi and 1 Ilwrath.

Wow, there are a lot more of them than I thought. I'll see about compacting some of the more similar ones.

That seems like a good place for this.

When you enter a system inhabited by an alien race in SCO, a variation on that race's theme music plays in the interplanetary screen instead of the normal interplanetary music. Volasaurus' new tracks were obviously inspired by that.

Or… like… any game since Mega Man?

If you want them to be landmarks, less might be more. Also, you could do more with star color.

I like less nebula.

Now the benchmark is whether the Daktaklakpak are working correctly.

ummmmm. What?

I got one of my Syreen names in Peeru from that book.

What's that?

The name I used was Trixia. She was one of the Syreen who needed her ship repaired.

Hah, that's clever!  Was it a good read overall?

It was odd. Several large parts were really, really dark, and others seemed a little bit under-explained. The good parts were really good. Lots of good ideas, and IIRC some good characters (it's been a while).

I got one of my Syreen names in Peeru from that book.

If GotP is published and Stardock isn't on the attack anymore, I might give SC:O a try. I wouldn't even need them to have reached that point willingly.

meh. (and not the grand kind of meh)

Jump scares (of which this would be a weak one) are less useful in this regard than touring an old folks' home.
