It sounds like Orz were at their stone age when someone gave them space technologies without uplifting their language to something possible to translate properly.
Stone-age fishes are surely "below" Arilou in means of both biological and mental evolution, which is another explanation for "Arilou are from above, Orz are from below".

Another explanation would be (also weird) that Arilou took all the kidnapped humans into the past and started a retarded experiment to create a race that would be easier to use to "fix genome anomalies" that Arilou have because of quasi-space.

Hello. I have explanations of some basic things about Arilou/Orz some players can't understand, as well as for Syreen-human genetic compatibility. (admins, feel free to remove this topic if you find it is a duplicate).

1) Some can't understand what's "Arilou are from above, Orz are from below".
Itis fairly simple in religious "planes/layers" of the world (7 skies, 9 "levels" of hell, etc). Sounds like Arilou pretend to be angels.

2) Catch Nggn, "not solid enough".
Nggn - some ghost-like form of pseudo-life. you must be black-hole solidity/density grade to catch those (only possible in a certain "plane" or quasi-space). (or a more simple explanation, "solid" is a mistranslation, they meant "concentrated").

3) What did "fish-folk" Orz do to "clones" (Androsynth)?
They punished Androsynth in time, mutating them (hence the Syreen, with human-compatible genome).

Those are just common-sense/religion explanations, and 3rd one also explainss a biological impossibility of Syreen-human genetic compatibility. Feel free to discuss other such "plot holes" of Star Control series here.

Space Rangers 1 and 2 (although stupid 3D effects render the game unplayable), the original idea was quite close to Star Control. |:(|
