Really is to bad you can't say yes to that offer. A ending like your ship covered in "myconish" stuff would be kinda neat in its own way. Sort of like how you can surrender to the Ur-quan.....

The game is having you play the character of the Captain instead of just being yourself and doing whatever you want. The Captain can have multiple personalities -- he can be a cruel slave trader and imperialist, a nice-guy negotiator, a craven coward... For the Captain surrendering to the Kzer-Za isn't totally out of character, since it may be a way he can save his home planet from destruction if all else is lost. I have a hard time picturing a version of the Captain who actually wants to become a mindless slave to Juffo-Wup, however. Same reason why you're never given an option to actually turn off the Taalo Shield when you've got the Dnyarri on board. (I like a fanfic I read which describes how the Captain had the switch to the Taalo Shield fused shut and then locked away from the rest of the ship, so even if his mind weakened it wouldn't be easy to turn it off.)

I would not be surpised if that did happen (meaning the rock was locked away). Look at what happened when the Captain asked about his powers. *coughFlowerscough*

Regarding the Captain personality - Your right - it would not true to game really - but it would be neat all the same.....  :-/

Normal fungi on your feet is gross enough =/

I don't know about you guys, but the power/flower conversation with the Dynarri scared the hell out of me.

That little guy seriously gave me the heebly-jeeblies. Definitely one voice I wouldn't vote to re-record; he's so much scarier as such a... *crude*, transparently malicious little bastard than he would be if he were really trying to be intimidating. He just likes playing with people and isn't one bit ashamed of it... "Please send down two of your crew to entertain me, captain. Preferably one male and one female." Brr.

I wish there was an option to kill him yourself instead of letting the Sa-Matra explosion do it. There are few things in real life I would personally finish off, but as PC games go, the Dynarri are one of them =p

I wish there was an option to *pretend* you are under Dynarri mind control when you talk to the Ur-Quan. It'd completely freak them out.  Grin

Ur-Quan: Who do you take us for, Spathi?!
Captain: NO. DON'T - YOU - MEAN - THAT - YOU - TAKE - YOURSELVES - FOR - SPATHI?
Ur-Quan: Yes, I mean... You will stop talking like that! We do not take your Dynarri impersinations with good humor! Wait... how could you know how the mind control works...?
