1) In SC3 the flagship you had was supposed to be the MK2, even if it didn't look like the picture at the end of SC2 (BTW, until I was introduced into the online community of SC I was sure that was just a future city, not the MK2 itself).
And yes, according to SC3 the MK2 was build by zelnick using the Precursor factory on Unzervult. A factory that even if somehow it wasn't destroyed nor detected by the Ur-quan, it still doesn't have it's main computer, because the computer was connected to the MK1 (the first flagship). Go figure...

2) Only people who had precursor ships with the warp bubble transport system could travel between stars in SC3. The player had one, and the Crux had one.
The Vux got around by collaborating with the Crux, being the sneaky weasels scum they are. Smiley

3) At the end of SC2 the kinds ask, "how did you FIND the MK2?"

4) Zero^, according to SC3 Zelnick was returned to his own time shortly after being thrown to the future. In the future he saw the EternalOne win, and the collapse of hyperspace. That's why he returned to Unzervult and did all he did.

Now I have a question of my own:
If some sequel will have a MK2 not like what P&F suggested (and yet not sucky like SC3), what will you do? Smiley

The Mark II was a precursor cruiser as opposed to a precursor tug which is what you guys flew.


And about the Pkunk saying the captain dies on an early age; it's not unlikely that this is relative to Pkunk lifespans.

Chat log in the history section of the PNF.
Strange that it didn't work. Perhaps http://www.classicgaming.com/starcontrol/history/ does.

Ok, it appears YaBB thought the ':' was part of the URL. Fixed it in the posting above.

I think they should make a Pre-quel of SC2,
Set in the sentient Mileliu days. The character you play could be an Ur-Quan.

If i remember correctly the SC2 ends at a point where "you" sit beside a pond with your grand children (on earth) with the precursor vessel in the back ground.


what do u mean the precursor vessel in the background
the vessel is destroyed in the end, remember?

Does anyone have the web location where the ending shot (either of the PC or 3DO version) could be found. I wanted to show both of them.
Then again, a better idea might me to just say:
"Beat the game and find out what we're talking about."
But I did want to post pictures of both.

Some claim the thingy in the background is the Mark2.
In the PC version I always thought it's a city.
The 3DO picture looks more like a ship (but ugly ship IMO).
