mine is
Kohr-Ah's

If you eliminate all non-Ur-Quan sentient races, including yourselves then we will stop.
We have made this offer before. No one accepts.
So we cleanse.

If you attack us, we will destroy you.
Over five thousand races have made such a claim.
We survived. They did not.
Nor shall you.

Resistance is useless. Our victory is inevitable!
It is not.

You have attacked us before, and we survived! You cannot defeat us. Submit!
We did. You did. Yes we can. No.

Surrender or die.
Our counter to your statement is simpler
just `die'.


The Kohr Ah get the best lines, don't they?

I liked a lot of the conversations with the Zoq-Fot-Pik.  This one's from memory, so don't freak if I don't get it exactly right.  Grin

Four races simultaneously evolved into sentience on our world- the Zoq, the Fot, the Pik, and the Zebranky.

Three of them, the Zoq, the Fot, and Pik, peacefully evolved in such a way as to gather sustenance from various nutrient sources- ambient sunlight, airborne zooplankton (my favorite!), and [i forgot].

The Zebranky also gathered food from various sources, namely...

...the Zoq...

...the Fot...

...and the Pik. (grr, my rendition doesn't do it justice :-/)


The other one that sticks out in my mind would probably be better recited by our very own Kohr-ah Primat, from whose displeasure from mangling this quote I would certainly cower from, but nothing ventured.....

You tried to cleanse us before, but we survived!  You cannot beat us! Give up!

We did. You did. Yes we can. No.

/cowers

EDIT- oops, I didn't see that Kohr-ah one posted by Yehat Sympathizer...  Still, it was pretty close  Grin

actual quote Grin =

In our ancient past, four species evolved intelligence on our homeworld. Simultaneously. They were the Zoq, the Fot, the Pik and the Zebranky. We three, the Zoq, Fot, and Pik evolved in such a way as to acquire sustenance from many sources, from airborne zooplankton, from solar and ambient energies, and from rocky fungal clingers. Our favorite! The Zebranky also consumed a variety of foods, namely: the Zoq the Fot and the Pik.

The Spathi have some of the best quotes in the game:

'Fwiffo would do anything you wanted if you held a gun to his head. Then again, Fwiffo would probably do anything you wanted if you held a carrot to his head...'

'When the Ilwrath were pushing into hyperspace, we asked that same question, and they said something to the effect of "Real soon." '

Vegetable. Vegetable to his head.
The Spathi are cool like that. Such as when they tell you of how they pass the time in deep space. *snork snork*
Or how about their daily prayer? Maybe Fwiffo's tale of how he grew into a fine upstanding Spathi pilot? Or when the High Council must agree to terms of your Alliance?

The ZoqFotPik are close, though they aren't cowards perse.. more like a "better those jukes & narfs than them" mentality.

And then there's the VUX.. After they reveal their "true" nature toward Hootmans.. er.. Huge Glands.. Hunams.. (damnit, talking to Spathi too much) You must be destroyed! Think of their children!

"Welcome to the end of your life, courtesy of VUX technology. Our infinite supply of Intruder vessels is even now locking their vaporizers onto your position, and we shall end your painful, grotesque existence for you as soon as possible. In the meantime, here is a little music..."

And don't forget Commander Hayes and his Science Team.
"The sooner you get this thing off this starbase, the less likely it is that the thing will get loose and kill us all. Uh... guess that's it."

-=PakoPako=-

"I am bored. Please send me a couple of your crew members to play with. Preferably one male, and one female, though I won't be picky. No?! You have no sense of fun, Captain. You must have been a boring child." -Dynarri Pet

"..Even our house pets are rather evil." -Ilwrath

"GENETIC MODIFICATION!! YES! IT PERFECT GIFT!" -Umgah Homeworld

HAHAHAH! yes!!!! i love this!

Spathi
Each day when we awaken we call forth the traditional Spathi prayer
"Oh God...Please don't let me die today! Tomorrow would be so much better!"


i also like that too
Utwig
BUT WAIT!!
The Ultron throbs and whistles! Matters of significance are being relayed to our brains.
It has been so long since we communicated with the ultimate in such a manner
but slowly, the truth is revealed... our destiny!!
We have been directed to join with our Supox allies and attack...
YOU!...
...no wait, that's wrong. Sorry.


Shofixti
I am the glorious Shofixti warrior, Tanaka.
You killed my father... my mother... my many brothers
all six of my sisters
in fact, my entire species.
Prepare to die!

Ilwrath
What happened to the Ilwrath stationed here?
The Ilwrath contingent were supposed to be the toughest ridge-crest, er
the most rigid flipper, no
ah yes - the BACKBONE of the Earthguard force; but they departed the system en masse
not long after the last Ur-Quan Dreadnought vanished from this region of space.
They claimed to have received a direct order from their Gods of Evil and Darkness,
who had grown dissatisfied with the Ilwraths' passivity
and wanted them to kill or at least torture someone soon.
Personally, I believe they just got bored and went off to have some fun.

Thanks coleslawjoe.  I wasn't nearly as close with the ZFP quote.  Grin

Speaking of Commander Hayes, he has some great lines, too.  Specifically (paraphrased):

"What the hell kind of ship is that?!!"

"Captain, our sensors are picking up an Ilwrath Avenger closing fast!  It's j-mming our tr-nsmi-s-on.  Wa-t unt-l p---t bl-nk r-ange" (something like that...what kind of commander is he? Roll Eyes)

And finally, the conversation about the scientists' report on the Utwig bomb.  I really can't recall this quote at all...  Something about "it is indeed a bomb" and various runes and "if you feel the need to experiment with it, do not do so within a 1AU radius, preferably further."

Man, SC2 had great lines and species.  PakoPako reminded me how funny it was to converse with the Umgah!  Grin

Be Welcome, Friendly Allies. We hope that the Good, Green Sunlight warms you.

I cannot recite the complete textfiles (nearly everything is worth reciting).
Some of my favourites:

Cmdr. Hayes:
Quote
Um... er... well... We lost another lander.
What!!!
You lost another lander!?
We shall build another, but DON'T LOSE THIS ONE, OKAY!
Quote
The Empire of (your name)!
Ulp! Well... you're the one with the big starship.
So be it - The Empire of (your name)!


Kohr-Ah:
Quote
We are the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah.
We cleanse our destiny.
You will soon die.
Make whatever rituals are necessary for your species.
Quote
Our nature, the fulfillment of our fate
requires your destruction.
Quote
You have attacked us before, and we survived! You cannot defeat us. Submit!
We did. You did. Yes we can. No.


Kzer-Za:
Quote
"It was as if I had fallen asleep, or unconscious."
"I felt like someone had control of my mind and my body."
This sounds all too familiar... yes, the nightmare begins again.
Perhaps we should contact the Kohr-Ah Primat, explain to her.
No, they will not believe. They are too stubborn and simple-minded.
They will not see the danger until it is too late!
Human, begone! Leave my sight! We must defeat the Kohr-Ah speedily
so that we can attend to this new Dnyarri menace.
Can you read here as well, that a female is the leader of the Kohr-Ah?
Quote
"Uh oh."
It is as though your species' brain is too small to hold a simple thought
such as, WE WILL KILL YOU FOR DISOBEYING!
This is not a complex idea.
Quote
"Nope! I won't surrender!"
You have made the incorrect choice
and now you must suffer the consequences of your mistake.


Syreen:
Quote
What I need right now, is a Touch-o-Vision.
Why only fantasize, Captain, when you can... no... wait a minute. What am I saying!?
Quote
So what do I get for this, eh? Hmm? Eh?
You will receive more gratitude than you know what to do with, Captain.
(during a special scene)Smiley
Quote
and if you're still conscious, I thought we could try this
even though I've never done it before!


Utwig:
Quote
Normally we would not bother to acknowledge your presence
but you find us in a state of moderate depression
instead of our normal cycle of self-destructive tendencies.
Quote
Alien vessel, grieve for the loss incurred by both the Utwig and the Universe at large.
Quote
Why do you flaunt the husk which once was the Ultron?
Can't you see how much we suffer? Is this not enough?
This thing you possess... this husk of lost destiny, it is the symbol of the Ultimate Utwig Anguish!
Do - Not - Tor - ment - Me - So!


Thraddash:
Quote
Inferior Aliens. You have once again intruded upon the territory of the Thraddash.
This is a patrolled region of space. Your presence here is considered an act of War!
How wonderful!
Quote
It was not until 2143 that Maintenance Engineer Reeunk invented the afterburner effect
when he accidentally stuck his cigar in the aft fuel valve of the ship he was working on.
WHABOOM!!!


Dnyarri:
Quote
I am bored.
Please send me a couple of your crew members to play with
preferably one male, and one female, though I won't be picky.
No!? You have no sense of fun, Captain.
You must have been a boring child.
Quote
I sing. I dance. I have a wild, fun time.
My life is an endless party down here, Captain. Isn't that obvious?


For the rest i really like the Supox' lines.

Greetings, Garden Guardians. We shall block the Kohr-Ah's sunlight and frost their leaves!

Don't forgot that the captain himself has some great lines like:
Melnorme
Quote
`Trade' is for the weak. We TAKE what we want!

Die, eye-freak!

Ok, it's a deal, but ONLY the non-essentials!
What kind of sucker do you think I am? Forget it!
It's not worth stripping.

We have no fear of you, Melnorme!


Dnyarri
Quote
All right, I agree. But any tricks and you'll be sucking vacuum.

Must... resist! Can't... let... it... win! Must... not...
I - have - no - desire - to - kill - you. Welcome - aboard - our - vessel.

I'm scared, Dnyarri. What if this doesn't work?

Yes - Dnyarri - I - wish - to - know - about - flowers.
