UQM Fork: Story Idea - Black Spathi Squadron
« on: August 22, 2003, 05:14:36 am »

So, you're playing the UQM game, and somewhere out in Ur-Quan space, you come across a group of fighters engaging the Ur-Quan - the Black Spathi Squadron. Their Pursuer ships are modified Eluders with less crew (20 instead of 30), and more powerful guns (they fire a non-turreted version of the Orz railgun, a faster-firing BUTT missile, and have double the battery and recharge rate). They've been spending the past 15 years fighting the Ur-Quan, hoping to free their people from slavery. The Ur-Quan are, needless to say, incredibly irritated, and the Spathi High Council refuses to even mention their existance, except to deny their connection to Spathiwa to the Ur-Quan, and to deny their existance to everyone else.

The ultimate purpose, of course, is to convince them to stop attacking the Ur-Quan and start attacking the Kor-Ah, and potentially convince some of their ships (4?) to join your fleet. Once you've done this, they're rapidly annihilated by the Kor-Ah, but manage to buy you an additional 6-12 months of time before the Kor-Ah win the doctrinal conflict.

Suggested media files:

1. Comm screen - a Spathi with a red bandanna draped over his eye, dark red glowing screens behind him, and a spiked collar around his neck. He sounds like a pirate, but with the high-pitched Spathi voice.

2. Ship - a Spathi Eluder with the spheres painted black with silver spikes attached, and the connecting pipes painted in red-and-black stripes.

3. Ship captain screen - a Spathi with a red bandanna and a spiked collar.

4. Music - something like the original Spathi music, but more grunge/techno.

Suggested dialog?

It's a race of course there will be differences in people. Your being steriotypical, what if all the human race were proud and pure? You and me both know that's not true.

The point is, what this will add to the plot? Nothing! Nothing at all.

Hmmm... Come to think of it... No. If you change the plot, it must be some serious one which will donate to the game.
It is like the treasure in the yehat's zone. Someone suggested to put some plant with 20000 ru of minirals guarded by 5 yehats(elite ones).

DJ, the Black Spathi Squadron was invented by Fred and Paul. It is referred to in the game, by Commander Hayes.

No race is that utterly simple.

Somehow i get the feeling that im already disliked in this place but what hte heck im going to reply anyways

I like The idea of adding the black squadren. I agree with the fact that every race has its exception to tendancys. And since its already mentiond in the game it makes perfect sense for a addition, no it doesent add a whole lot to the plot. But it would be fun  Wink

Anyways thats my view on this topic

I'm not sure what this "fork" thing is, but as an Easter Egg (damnit, too much Fallout for me..) it'd be pretty nice.

A punk/slash/rock remix of the Spathi song is fitting...

Again, a race that large, cannot be 100% homogenous. There must be SOMEONE who acts like a jerk. (unless, as the ZoqFotPik say, your entire species are jerks)

Again, plot-wise, it wouldn't be anything special. But as an Easter Egg, really funny.

Speaking of Easter Eggs, a new alternate dark dimension of death would be 'nice'. The "bad luck" Easter Egg to speak.  (nightmares of meeting an evil version of a precursor service vessel..)

How are you planning to do voices for the dialog you add?

As far as plot goes, of course it adds to it, its a little chunk of story about the Black Sheep of the Spathi and their successful attempt at helping destroy the Khor-Ah.
It even completes it, think about it, if its mentioned in the game, it should be in the game.
