OK - your first question:

Yes, The hint you got from the VUX commander is very bad in my opionion. There is another race that will give you a very direct hint to were it is.

As to the probes, ask the king of info.

Use that HS jpg map that lightman gave a link to.  It will help a lot with the puzzles (has the constellation names and shapes).

The Vux commander says:
Spoiler


`... demise, It(!) basks in yellow light within the eight star constellation of Linch-Nas-Ploh.'
We have translated `Linch-Nas-Ploh' to mean approximately
`the snake-like creature who has swallowed the elephantine beast.'

So, you're looking for a constellation with 8 stars, one of which is yellow, and it looks like a snake with a big bulge.

Is there any way of knowing when I've got the right creature? I've been to Gamma Serpentis, which I had a suspicion might have something to do with it (though I didn't notice the 'yellow' bit and went to the Alpha star initially), and found and captured 2 types of lifeform (which involved a heck of a lot of saving and reloading), one on the moon of the Yehat Homeworld, one on Gamma Serpentis II, and the dialogue hasn't changed with the VUX commander... is there other life in the system, or am I missing something?

OOO - You WILL know when you have the creature!!!! Let me put it this way. As soon as you land on the planet the thing will zoom across the map in seconds and tear your lander to bits in 3-4 seconds if you do not have a upgrade for your lander. Also it will give you a little  message from the crew about how hard it was to get if you mange to capture it. O - and one last thing. You can not sell it to the Melnorme. The creature will be in your items list and labels "ZEX's Beauty".  Trust me - You will know when you get the creature!

Is Gamma Serpentis the right star system?

Minor nitpick; bio analysis is non-destructive.  The Beauty is worth 30 credits too.  Smiley

Ok, I want one spoiler, 'cos I'll be really annoyed if I manage to mess up the game - I've just used the 2nd excuse that stops the Pkunk from going to Yehat space... presumably once they get there they get slaughtered. How can I save them, once they start moving again?

SPOILER

By starting the Yehat revolution - That is done by showing a yehat a shofixti. The pkunk will become "absorbed" but they will come back in the end.

Nuts... I left it too late. Does it make any major difference to the game if you don't show the Captain to the Yehat before the Pkunk get there?
