Its from the Pages of Now and Forever, *supposedly* from the SC2 manual.
The SCWC does not, however, list if it was from the PC or 3DO version.

The Drall were 3 meter tall skeletal humanoids, according to the SC2 manual.

A Chenjesu's size would be dictated more by the limits of its environment and on the availability of proper sustenance (energy & minerals).  A upper limit may also be imposed if the Chenjesu reproduced by splitting off parts of themselves to create new individuals.  

"Sanctuary", a fanfic by Shaun Green, states the Mmrnmhrm to be 130 centimeters, or 1.3 meters.  It is, however, an estimate, not an incontrovertible fact.

Most of mine have already been mentioned, with the exception of this one.

Perhaps Procyon II had a thinner atmosphere and was not necessarily airless.  All planetary atmospheres where compared to an Earth standard and where (apparently) rounded to the nearest whole number.  

Therefore, if Procyon had less than fifty percent of the Earth standard it would be rounded down to zero.  There would still be a electrically conductive medium, even though the world is considered airless.

The Mmrnmhrm world was airless.

Yes, the 3DO had the map as well.

There used to be a muliplayer online RPG at www.starconrpg.com .  However, that site does not appear to be online anymore. GURPS Star Control basics can be found at  hkn.eecs.berkeley.edu/~mcmartin/gsc/ .

Maybe I should try that later (Arilou/Slylandro vs. Chmmr). I can't now as the computer I'm at is too ancient for OS X and so cannot run UQM. Thanks anyway.

(The computer I'm using... is a Performa with a G3 upgrade.)

Anyway...

How competent the pilot is very important. I actually managed to beat a human-controlled Jugger with nothing more than a Intruder. I just happened to be a better pilot, probably as I had more experience with the VUX than he did with Utwig.

Even harder was when I actually managed to beat an Avatar (weak cyborg) with a Zoq-Fot-Pik Stinger without losing any crew. Any use of the tractor beam would doom the ZFP, however, so a smarter A.I. or a human player would be nearly impossible. (Weak Cyborg doesn't use the Avatar's special at all.)

These Utwig quotes (copied from the PoNaF) are hilarious:

"Just because you busted your Ultra-thingy, don't be a bunch of cry-babies!"
Gah! Now you've really done it!
Your blatant transgressions have me hopping mad!
Hop hop hop! Okay, that's it! Put up your dukes! Nobody makes fun of the Ultron!

"This Bomb is pretty dangerous and you guys are crazy. I'm getting out of here!"
Ha ha, don't worry. Hey! I laughed! How could I do that?
Now I sink into a depression that leaves me speechless.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

One of my favorite quotes has to be this:

AVATAR BATTLESHIPS ARE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OUR BROODHOME OR X-FORM VESSELS.
IN COMPETENT HANDS, THESE SHIPS CAN DEFEAT ANY SHIP IN SPACE.

( I’m a pro-Chmmr fanatic, does it show?Smiley )
