A good question I thought of - If a Shofixti and an Arilou fight, and the Shofixti detonates his glory device, could an Arilou teleport away fast enough to not be hurt?  Grin

The real gameplay answer btw, is SOMETIMES!   I took down 14 shofixti with 6 of my Arilou going down doing that exact thing...  But interesting thought to get your thoughts going...how does the Arilou know the Shofixti is going to press the button?  Wink

LOL!

Maybe it's a Jedi mind trick.

p.s. am I the only one who is reminded of a Pkunk quote ("Only sometimes!") when they read Capt. Smith's post? Grin

if the shofixty is getting close it just detonates - simple as that
and i think i was successfully avoiding the detonation more then once...

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.

If you want to get in-depth with the storyline, the Arilou are telepaths. They'd just "feel" when the Shof was about to atomize itself and teleport away ne'er but a fraction of a second earlier.

Another good question...if a Syreen sucks off the Pkunk crew and promptly blows the Pkunk away after its crew are collected, and the Pkunk resurrects, has the crew there truly resurrected?

Well -- consider that the corporeal entity is not the true person... so the Syreen get the corporeal body, but the Pkunk spirit is gloriously reborn into a new one. Remember that the Syreen song, once the crew is aboard, is permanent and basically erases (kills) the person underneath.
