The Zoq-Fot-Pik were just eliminated on my game. The date that I heard the Starbase Commander tell me about the Ur-Quan transmission (it was most likely an Ur-Quan transmission, as he describes it as 'exhultant') was February 21, 2157.  I had visited the Starbase a week before that, so they were elminated within that week.

Does making allies with them affect when they die?

Yes, soon after you contact them on their homeworld, a Kohr-Ah Marauder shows up and bombards their planet. If you don't eliminate it quickly, the Zoq-Fot-Pik are destroyed and you hear the said 'exultant war cry'.

Which is why I never contact them until the Precursor ship is fully armed, or I am able to build ships that are a match for the Marauder.

Something I wondered about the game, is how absolutely quickly you could win the game, if you knew where to go.

Your main concern would be sufficient RU from not mining at all, which would be alleviated by Chmmr anyways. But up to that point, I imagine you'd want to invest all your RU in thrusters and fuel.

Obviously, 'optionals' like the Portal Spawner would be in your best interest to obtain, from the sheer time they save you. You'd best refrain from other 'optionals' like the Shofixti revival / Yehat insurrection and Slyandro Probe however. Still, I think if you played things right, you could win the game within a year.

We are the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah.
Our nature, the fulfillment of our fate requires your destruction.
You are filth. It is now your time to be cleansed.
