It is, there used to be a LOT of interesting discussions avout the SC universe in general over there as well. Like Officer Flubbos theory about Ur-Quan biology and so on. It's a shame it's so quiet now, but I'm sure it'll pick up soon, when their new update comes up.

Looking at the TimeWarp forums, the last posts there seem to come from August or September 2002.  It's like everyone got up and left at the same time for some odd reason.  It was like the doomed Pkunk migration, perhaps.

Timewarp is still alive. It's just quiet now. The guys who were the main forces behind working it have all gone on spring break for a bit, and you know how it is about working for free. Besides, there's been a big new release for timewarp looming on the horizion for a while. They may just be building up steam for the big release.

I think the fact that the Mmrnmmhrm Mother Ark was breaking down resulted in a mass gathering of these robot dudes.  I've heard alot of talk about 'rogue Mmrnmmhrm' still flying around in space.  However, considering the Mother Ark is destroyed and that their numbers would quickly diminish makes this highly unlikely.  Maybe there are some Mmrnmmhrm who don't rely on the Mother Ark to survive, but it was my understanding that its breaking down would result in the end of their species.  The Chenjesu, even as individuals, don't seem the type to break from coherency and go off on their own.  They're too diplomatic to resort to those ends.

True, but there are always going to be individuals within a society that feel like there's a 'better way' to get what they want. Did the Mother Ark truly get destroyed? Didn't Hayes say it just broke down..? Anyways, for the Mmrnmhrm, I imagine that a small colony of them might have pursued a method to create more of their own kind, perhaps by analyzing the inner workings of the Mother Ark or by rejuvenating it. Much like the Androsynth are sterile clones, but immediately researched a way to propogate despite their genetic limitations. Certainly I am sure they would have had second thoughts on the 'merge' with the Chenjesu, had they managed to get the Mother Ark working before the merge began.

As for the Chenjesu, I imagine every society has its criminals, its purists, its extremists, its rebels (Admiral ZEX!), its conservationists, its rogues (Black Spathi Squadron!). Even one as harmonic as the Chenjesu.

Perhaps I'm just poking at a moot issue.

But it just doesn't seem feasible that absolutely every single member of two races, with -no- exception whatsoever, agreed to merge itself with a counterpart with an utterly foreign and alien biology. It just strikes me as likely that there are would be (a very few) individuals who'd have no part of that. Not to mention, how did they get the pairing up of Mmrnmhrm and Chejesu down to the exact number without extras left over on either side? Did they perhaps join two Mmrnmhrm to a Chenjesu (or vice versa) in special cases?

For what it's worth, I agree up to the last paragraph. however, who says there was one chenjesu for every Mrnhrm? Maybe the ratio was completely diffferent, or maybe it was fluid? So some Chmmr could have one of each, some 3 Chenjesu and a Mrnhrm, and some 5 Mrnhrm and two chenjesu. After all, we don't know how big these fellas are, or how many of them there are. Maybe this way, there was enough people for everyone to go along with. Also, as stated in a thread that has probably fallen off the bottom of the world by now, we don't know what they were planning to become. Maybe they didn't want to be a whole race, instead they could have opted for a single individual, a kind of super being/weapons platform.

Whatever happened to the Mother Ark anyway? After it broke down I mean. If the Ur-Quan won the war then maybe they have it stashed somewhere.

Interesting thought. Even if it is too dmaged to build more Mrnhrm, perhaps it couild be utilized for something else? If it really is precusrosr tech, surely there might be a lot to be learnt from it.
