1. Nope. Once it's up it's up. Same goes for the other slaveshielded worlds. (Your precursor vessel may be powerful, but not that powerful. Wink)
2. Been a while since I played the game... I don't remember. Somewhere in VUX space, but I don't remember the name of the system.
3. I think you still have plenty of time. One of the hardest things is to get yourself established resource-wise; once you've done that it's a matter of meeting all the races and doing what you need to do, with resource collecting on the side when you need to.

Argh... can't get in to my account to post this. Sad I must have entered my old e-mail address in when I registered and now I can't get at my password.

1. No.
2. I hear there's a few interesting animals out towards VUX space.
3. It depends on how far you are at that point with your tasks.
Depending on the groups you've met I'd probably say yes you will end up reloading the game for time limits.  Stick with it though, you'll figure out stuff you can use.

Look here:

http://www.classicgaming.com/starcontrol/sc2/images/sc2_color_map.jpg

It's a fairly-decent scan of the hyperspace map that originally shipped with the game -- it has all the spheres of influence from the SC1 era on them, which should give you what you're looking for.

Don't be surprised if the Vux commander does not give you them for free....

Do you try to play the game for yourself ITP?  All answers are within the game and you don't even have to deal with the Melnorme to get them.

Your Thraddash friends have the answer.

where the heck was this forum when i playing this game back in 95, on the 3do. i called the 1-900 hotline for gamehints. cost me about 50 bucks. had to wait for all the BS before it would let me select my game...jerks. oh well... dont take too much of the help around here for granted. remember...  for me, it was up hill both ways, in 6 ft of snow just to get to the arcade...

Your Thraddash friends have the answer.

That's hardly a fair tip.  There is only one way the Thraddash will tell you where the beast is, and you have to do all of the steps leading up to it "just right" (i.e., do one differently and it doesn't happen)
  • You cannot steal the Aqua Helix from them first
  • You have to beat their culture into submission
  • When they ask you how they should model their new culture, you must tell them "be just like us!" (this is the least fun of all the options, IMO)
  • You need to visit them twice more and ask them how their new culture is developing, then they'll tell you where the beastie is.
If our esteemed guest is at a point in the game where this chain of events is still possible to complete, then a (relatively) spoiler-free hint is still possible; if not, then he should read this post instead.

Another thing that might help, ITP, is if you check up on any strange things that the Spathi undoubtedly told you about.
