I like an undercover Ur-Quan (Kzer-Za or Kohr-Ah, that doesn't matter ) rogue sitting in a corner. Or the Thraddash destroying half of the bar. Or the Orz meeting an Arilou there.

Simple things first. You could add a melnorme (not rich enough to run his own business, therefor sitting there trying to sell information and/or solutions to riddles), or other things. Important would be that you only meet the races which are aboard your ship (maybe under Syreencontrol like that Ur-Quan, Druuge, Mycon or Vux) or have an alliance with you.

Just the possibilities to destroy time in such a simple way.... Just talk, talk, talk. Nobody would need talkshows anymore. Just imagine a Syreen with her daughter complaining that no man wants to meet with her daughter, that all human males are too shy. Cheesy
Edit for the german fans: mit dem Lied: "Lorelee, so klappt das nie! Die Deutschen flirten sehr subtil."
Or a Traddash with feelings. Or an Ilwrath wishing to overthrow their twin gods of evil and destruction by replacing them with the twin gods of eternal and everlasting superb gameplay?
Just who would moderate that show showing in the bar-tv? A Shofixti? (Hey - we are on TV, do not say things like PEEP or PEEP here! A third time and it's over!). Wink

Or try to throw some old beer or cold coffee in the plants. Just a small thank you or HEY, BUSTER! -reply from the Supox.

The possibilities, the fun!

Shofixti: We now return with our guest, the scum sucking, excrement sac with his withering reproductive organs, the Thraddash with feelings!
TWF: *sniff* *cries*
Shofixti: We also have today the rouge Ilwrath scum!
Ilwrath: Candy and lollipops!!!1
Shofixti: Riiight. And also on the roster are the ever lovable Fwiffo and the Talking Pet!
Fwiffo: *cowers* Um...hi?
Dnyarri: You idiots! Don't you have anything better to do than stand around here and chatter? [ START DESTROYING THINGS! ]

"Less than stellar" gives it WAAAAAAAAAY too much credit.

I have a review/synopsis of the thing at http://hkn.berkeley.edu/~mcmartin/gsc/Interbellum.html from a long time ago.

I've been told that this is actually one of the more positive reviews.

as i see it, the point of this is to get the answer to riddles. so it would make sence to add more riddles, seeing that the answers are all in the game. but the thing with adding more riddles, is waht riddles would we add?

Rumors of the rainbow worlds left, perhaps?

Maybe have to add some more artifacts. Or someone to sell wimbly's trident to. You could hear rumors where to find the BSS from some Spathis hanging around...

Hmm, you know, thinking about all this, there are things to be considered. Do Spathi breath nitrogen rich oxygenated air? Do Thradash? Yeah, Syreen and Human can co-habitate nicely, but what about the other races? And how does one get a Chmmr into a space bar? Obviously, every race you meet would not work well in this scenario. (Although, StarControl has been know to make consessions against what one might see in reality for the sake of gameplay.)

However, a Councel of Races of the Empire of Guesst, or whatever, would be a welcome thing to see in Ur-Quan Masters 2, with all the bells and whistles already considered.

Diving suits. Or rather, personalized enviroment suits. That'd allow even a Mycon to walk around the bar, ordering his favourite type of molten lava slammer.

I stand by the diving suits. Or maybe the vechicles you manufacture at starbase are subtly altered versions of the originals, so that only the captain needs to wear a enivromental suit?

Orz breathes liquid (what liquid I don't know; I thought it was ethenol, but when I tried to confirm that, I couldn't find any text that said what they breathe).  It/they walks around the station in Vac-suits though.

Most other races (except maybe the Vux, Slylandro and Utwig) could probably survive in a nitrogen rich oxygenated environment.  The Vux seem like they would have a starkly different physiology, and the Utwig appear to have a visible gas of some sort always floating about their ships.
The Chenjesu and Mmrnmhrm probably didn't need to breathe, so my guess is the Chmmr don't have to either.  The Mycon can change their genetic structure to suit themselves for any environment; they only prefer lava, they don't require it.  The Umgah probably wouldn't like to leave their squishy ships unless they made a biological counterpart to the Orz's vacsuits.

Well, disregarding that they told you they cannot leave Source, on a spacestation there should also be 0g zones where they could survive rather well, i suppose.

"Starting" a bar seems like a silly thing, true. But if one were already established, say the recreation area designated for Starbase crew, then unassigned crew or ship captains/crew on "shore leave" could roam the place. So theoretically you could have anybody in there you'd have a ship for, but not likely all at once.

Exceptions:
Arilou, due to secretive nature. Maybe in a corner off to himself, but that's still pushing it. If they do appear, it would never be if an Orz was there as well. I doubt the Orz would have the same courtesy for the Arilou. So Arilou would only ever appear before allying with Orz, after angering them, or after thier destruction by the Kohr-Ah.
Umgah, possibly due to environmental needs, but definately because of their native agoraphobia. If they stick themselves in a chamber, I can see an Umgah on a stage cracking random jokes, especially at Spathi.

Examples:
Druuge peddling his wares.
Thraddash attempting to pick fights with a Spathi, and a Shofixti coming to the rescue.
Orz stomping around, *smelling* all the potential *campers*.
Pkunk telling fortunes.
Utwig talking to an uninterested Supox about the wonders of the Ultron.
Two or more Chmmr and possibly other intellectually inclined races talking on philisophical matters.
A Zoq and Pik arguing about which is the Fot, or the Pik giving lectures to anybody within earshot about Frungy!
And so on...

The Utwig and the Pkunk would probably get along pretty well...  I can see the Zoq getting in on that discussion, and the Fot might listen, but the Pik would be too rowdy.

The Syreen could be... umm... doing what Syreen do...
