Let me just say Novus's guesses are not all right, nor all wrong.
Uh, are you a telepath or something? I haven't posted any guesses yet.

okay i think that

number 7 is the yehat rebel line describing the vux/admiral zex
number 5 is orz(pretty sure)
number 9 is the umgah speaking on their plan to use the the talking pet to make spathi attack the vux.
number 8 is zoq-fot-pik "frungy frungy!"
number 3 is propably commander hayes
number 10 is of course talana and the "space monster" scene.

still trying to figure out the others

Ooh! Ooh!

2 is the Utwig when they get the Ultron back!

See, you can hear the whole "Augh! He taunts us with the shell of its glory! - Wait - the blinking is faimiliar - it's working again! O joy!" type thing they pull.

Maybe. I could be wrong.

1 already found
2 is indeed the Utwig when they get the Ultron back. (utwig041.ogg)
3 is indeed commander hayes. The first 3 words should give it away.
5. is indeed the Orz. You know the line too?
7. Yehat rebel line is absolutely correct (rebel016.ogg)
8. already found
9. right race, wrong line
10. yup. The English version was more fun imho, where they'd use a different voice for the monster, instead of having Talana say "growl".

Hmm...3 is when he's talking about the top-secret Star Control mission to Androsynth space

5 is the Orz going "Nnnnnngggaaaaaa! It is *dancing*"

9 is, actually, the Umgah talking about using the Talking Pet to make the Spathi attack the Vux. They also mention Dogar and Kazon and the Hyperwave caster in both the English line and the Japanese sample.

3 is indeed the talk about the mission to Vela
5 is indeed the "it is dancing" line
9, well I made a mistake there; it was indeed the line where the Umgah talk about using the Talking Pet for their own goals

That HAS to be when the monster gets loose and kills ZEX...

Eee, awesome. Cheesy ZEX sounds so upset.
Guessing from the little Frungy line, do the Zoq-Fot-Pik sound like bickering children? Because that would be adorable.
I thought I'd throw out some of my guesses for some of the mystery lines so far.

Is number 6 the Pkunk? I think it's their "did you know there's an invisible pixie on your head?" line.
I thought that 4 was the VUX, but with ZEX's clip as comparison, they don't seem to match completely...hmm. If it's not them, I'm not sure who else it could be...I hear "Ilwrath" in there, but maybe not. Hmm.

-Edit
NO WAIT I think that 4 is the Ilwrath! What was it, when yer screwing with them with the 'caster.
"It Shall Be So, Great Ones.
Yuubuu Are Mighty!
Yuubuu Are The Most Hideous And Deceitful!
We Ilwrath Are Too Fortunate To Have Yuubuu To Worship!"
That line!

Sadly, I don't seem to remember the story of SC2 very well, so I don't really know what happens when.  I _vaguely_ remember a monster getting loose, though, and this sample is most likely that situation.  *sigh*  Well, I'll have to play through it anyway to get to the text used in the Japanese version!  Smiley

For those interested:

「くかん・・・、なぜわしのメインコンソルが作動しないのだ?
(*京王)システムコンピュータが破損しているとはどういうことだ!?
なぜ!(*動物)か?(**いさっと)!?アラームを鳴らすんだこのやろ!
今どこにいる?!(**きっこい)!(**ほごく)せよ!(*奇怪)!
くかんー!くかん・・・?聞いてるのか?何を見っとる!
こちらに(*集中制)を(**ふか)!何を見てるんだ!
わしの・・・!な、な、な、なんだ!!いえぇー!えぇ~、ぇぇ、ぇ、ぇー!」

I transcribed that 30 second clip in about 5 minutes, I guess.  Words marked with a single star (*) are ones I'm not quite sure of, while two stars (**) are ones I'm definitely sure are incorrect.  I'd have to listen to those parts on repeat for a while to make it out... failing that, I could always ask my wife (who is Japanese, of course).  Smiley

Oh, and I'm guessing くかん (Kukan) is the name of the monster?

I think that "Frungy, Frungy!" is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever heard.

I had another listen to sample #11 again once I got home.  There are a few things wrong with it, so I'll post the fixed version Smiley

「副艦・・・、なぜわしのメインコンソルが作動しないのだ?
中央システムコンピュータが破損しているとはどういうことだ!?
なぜ!動物が?逃げてたっと!?アラームを鳴らすんだこのやろ!
今どこにいる?!機関室?報告せよ!機関室!
副艦ー!副艦・・・?聞いてるのか?何を見ておる!
こちらに集中せよ、副艦!何を見てるんだ!
わしの・・・!な、な、な、なんだ!!いえぇー!えぇ~、ぇぇ、ぇ、ぇー!」

What I had thought was the monster's name (Kukan) was actually fuku-kan, or "Assistant to" the kanchou (the Captain).  Once I had that figured out, the rest fell into place.

Anyway, I look forward to transcribing the rest of the game.  This is fun!  Smiley
