Whats the deal with the Androsynth?(spoilers)
« on: July 09, 2003, 01:37:22 pm »

I have been to those ruins on that planet where u learn about them discovering those "ghosts" and also assume that these "ghosts" are what the Arilou warn you about when you meet them but i have beaten the game and this is not addressed anywhere else in hte game.

My question is that was this put in just to scare you or did i miss something that farther explains this.

It's there to scare you.  They're gone man, don't go looking, anybody who goes looking ends up gone.

Androsynth? I don't know what you're talking about. Never heard of them. You're just imagining things. Do not speak of this again.

They..are just gone. Maybe they went inside other *level*,the Orz *smelled* them and that's how they ended.
Maybe the Orz *danced* with them,but I don't think so.

Plain *dancing* doesn't do what happened. Especially not to the guy who looked through the computer systems:

Quote
HE DID A LOT OF DAMAGE TO THE ANDROSYNTH'S COMPUTER BEFORE WE STOPPED HIM, AND I GUESS HE MUST HAVE HURT HIMSELF IN THE PROCESS. HE'S CUT UP PRETTY BADLY. YOU KNOW, IT'S STRANGE, HE MUST HAVE HURT HIMSELF WORSE THAN I THOUGHT. NOW, WHEN I LOOK AT HIM, IT SEEMS LIKE HE HAS EVEN MORE CUTS THAN JUST A FEW MINUTES AGO, AND BOY, IS HE SCREAMING!


On a somewhat related note, I remember when I first read those particular reports, so many years ago. I had played the game quite a bit and had never landed on the planets, but I knew about the whole Orz/Androsynth thing. I was actually looking through the data files when I first read those. Even out of the game, it really scared me.

Come to think of it, it still does. SC2 is so great!

The scientest fellow on the planet was obviously being killed by one of the seminvisible ghost/energy things that did in the androsinth. I don't see what that has to do with the orz.

One other thing did you notice that the Arilou say they are hunting *Nnngn* and when the Orz get mad they say *Nnnnggaaahhhhh*. Seems similar...

WARNING : non cannon reply and SC3 spoiler (or SC3 was itself a spoiler?)
The Orz delegation into the Kessari Quadrant are seemingly responsible to the disappearance of the Suppox delegation nd the findings are similar to those of the Androsyths (holes in the hulls of the ships and no bodies)
The Orz also betray you in the end claiming something about them being aligned with some ultimate evil.
So, to sum things up: according to SC3, they are the bad guys.

the orz turning agaisnt u is one of the better ideas in sc3. If ever an uqm2 is made, that should be included in the plot.

Seems to me the reason the Orz atack you is for the good of your species because - as demonstrated by the incident with the with the scientist and as the Arilou say later on - if you find out to much about the ghost/energy creatures then they can *smell*, ahem, I mean sense you and then they would kill you and likely move on to the rest of your species and the Orz figure that if you are so persistently interested in getting the information that if they don't kill you, you will find out some other way and get yourself and everything around / related to you killed and destroyed.
