The Mmrn-Mhrn have the tecknology for a powerfull lazer, long ranged missiles, powerfull thrusters, and powerful turning jets. if they put all this in one ship, that would be sweet. Cool

You mean, something like a fast manouverable VUX?

Sorta. it would be a fast, menouverable Vux, with long ranged missiles, a better lazer, and pilots that dont think im ugly.

Who says the M:bots don't think you're ugly? they're just very polite, that's all...

I bet the Mmrnhrm think humans are ugly, and they've just got too much tact to say so. I bet the Chenjesu thought we were too, so imagine if, when their dislike combined into the Chmmr. We'd get our asses kicked.

Let's hear it for intergalactic courtesy! Grin

They did. It's called the Chmmr Avatar.

Note the fact that the Avatar bears more similarities to the X-Form than it does to the Broodhome. (several vs. none at all)

what do you mean an explanation for why they don't make an unbeatable ship? If we ignore the gamewise implications (SC1 would have been a very boring game) we're still talking about completely alien technology here. Maybe the lasers drain too much energy for allowing it to move fast. Maybe the missiles have a bulky guidance system that doesn't leave space for anything but the tiniest thrusters, thus requiring for them to be launched at high speed. Maybe attempting to utilize a more advanced turning systems at high speeds leads to an overload in the engine matrix. Who knows? All we know is that they haven't, and that there is probably a reason for that.

Sage, how about the DOGI? I am sure the satelites have are DOGI-style tech.

the chmmr seems to be mosly new technology. im not sure of its lazers power, but it has more range than the mmrn mhrn lazer (still less than the VUX laser though). other than that, it doesnt really have a connection with either ship.

I dunno, I always viewed theAvatar as having combined elements of both Chenjesu and M:bots. I mean the shape of the ship clearly resembles the Transfomer in slow phase, and uses a weapon that is similar, although more effective. The picture of the captain puts me more in mind of a Chenjesu. And of course both crew capacity and battery power correspond to those of a Broodhome. A bit of this, a bit of that, but all bits sufficiently evolved from previous bits not to make it look like someone just slapped Transformer parts onto a Broodhome.

and with that, it adds awsome dinamo, point defends things, and a tractor beam!

well the dynamo is obviously a result of the combination of a crystalid race able to digest solar power, and a mechanical race able to automate this process and make it more effective.

The point defense bots are a simple variation of the D.O.GI. The intelligence of the crystalline intelligence of the D.O.G.I combined with a powerful A.I courtesy of the M:bots. The laser's are downgraded versions of the M:bot laser, which is still powerful enough to ensure that  the bots are unable to sport an engine strong enough to propel them freely around the screen. Instead they are restricted to a circular defense pattern around the ship.

The tractor beam is simply the focusing of solar energy through crystaline means augmented by the transforming power of the M:bots, meaning that the Chmmr ship suddenly becomes a powerful artificial gravity well (because it is "between phases" of two different forms, and thus has a higher density), and one who's gravitonic waves can be aimed through the innate reflective abilities of the crystal chenjesu.

Satisifed? There is always a high tech explanation...
