iv been thinking  about slave shield you know
turn them off at the start of game star base commander hays finds info in the precursors computer
the precursors computer may have info for shields
and bam turn it off .earth is free so is the other races in there shield
start colonys mining set up a star base build ships like zelnicks
you still do the same stuff like in the other star control 2

Well, the computer may have info on force fields, but chances are that the necessary technology to use the Precursor way of disabling the shield can't be found on the starbase.

Also, it's an Ur-Quan forcefield and not a Precursor one, so they aren't necessarioly that alike. Ad if you bring down the shield, EarthGov is going to take over. It'd be a practical idea in a sequel though. At that point we know we can bring down shields, since the Chmmr do it, and exploring the galaxy we're bound to find many slaveshielded planets...

Awwww, now look what you made me do... you've got me crying again!   Cry  If only you hadn't posted your idea, I wouldn't be so delirious...  ooooooohhh.   Cry

I was thinking your idea could be turned into a play... or an interpretive dance they could sell as the sequel.  You'd better get working on it right away before I steal the idea!   Tongue

Yeah! we need a grant from EarthGov to make an interpretive dance of the elimination of the slave shield by the Vindicator shortly after its initial arrival at Earth!

I'm sure we could find someone in the earthgov who enjoys song and dance...  you know, a connoisseur of fine arts.  A man who enjoys West Side Story or Les Misérables.  A man with substance and style...

... I think Captain Kirk has volunteered!  Congratulations!

the precursors are smart it might be in there computers. ways to make them ways to turn them off
they might have wrote the book on shields and forcefields

Haha, I'll take that as a copliment.  I assume you meant to say a Supox bean, not a stinky old vegetable bean.

The problem with this theory is that the Precursors came long before the Ur-Quan, so how could they know anything about disabling their forcefields?  Face it, only the Chenjesu knew how to disable the forcefields...  unfortunately, they're getting all cozy with their robot friends at the start, so you can't do much about that.

if someone in the future can put up something you cant take down
someone in the past can come up with a device to bring it down
like the plarlim beam device
it burn the shield away
but becarefull you might burn the ozone lare away
bring down all 3 shields
and the chenjesu can stay chenjesu
and the robots can stay robots
