His riddle says:
Quote
The pertinent passage goes as follows
`... demise, It(!) basks in yellow light within the eight star constellation of Linch-Nas-Ploh.'
We have translated `Linch-Nas-Ploh' to mean approximately
`the snake-like creature who has swallowed the elephantine beast.'


Semi-Spoiler:

Looking at The Original Hyperspace Map, try to find a constellation with 8 stars that looks like a snake with a huge bulge.  And, it's not an energy signature...

Perhaps this clue is a good reason for a new mod, one which shows the constellations in the game's HS map...

If you talk to a certain rather beligerent race and tell them to be like you after you impress them they'll tell you all about what you want to know.

Is your avatar really a picture of the creature? It does look a tad like the sprite on the planet.

Yes, it is a scaled-down version of Arne's excellent vux beast rendition.

This could be counted as off-topic, but is it possible to get your hands on the Shofixti Maidens by attacking ZEX?

No.

Right. You get to fight with infinite numbers of VUX intruders?

That seems to be the case. I tried once to kill 'em all, but got bored (and lost count) soon after 200...

Anybody who's looked at that part of UQM's code would know. I think they're infinite, though.

Might make an interesting mod to make them limited, but I don't know what could happen next, after you fried a planet's defences.

Why would the planetary infrastructure be damaged, if you only destroyed the defense fleet?
