361  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Druuge on: January 31, 2003, 05:41:38 am
Actually, the VUX are regarded as the weakest of the thralls...

Actually, I'd argue otherwise...  in Star Control I, the gigawatt (what's the name again?  gigawatt?  terawatt?) laser is described as a "feared" and truly formidable weapon, and the ship as a whole is one of the best tactical battle thrall ships.  Better than the Drone, that's for sure...  Although little is truly known about Vux-Ur-Quan relations, I think the Ur-Quan invest more faith in them than the Umgah, Thraddash, the snively Ilwrath or the mysterious Mycon... anywho.  It's hard to know, since we never really learn about the inner-workings of the Hierarchy too much.

The Druuge's evil is one based on greed.  The fact that everything in their society is based around the Crimson Corp., and that air is a purchasable commodity, means that their moral values are a little... skewed.  They're evil in that they do not value life or seek to make life better for anyone other than themselves.  And hey, throwing crew members into the fire?  That seems a little ruthless and evil to me.  Hey, even their theme song and victory ditties are evil.

"Ha-ha, yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! A fine deal, Captain. An excellent bargain... for me!"

Mwahaha.... ...
