It isn't possible to win without him; the Sa-Matra's guard is infinitely large.

i thought you just had to fight that ring of ships... and once you kill the first batch of 6 you are invunerable for enough time to pass through the rest, right?

But i have never tried it :-)

I really don't think you can get to the Sa-Matra by attacking the infinate ring  Smiley

Not only is there the massive ring of ships (not infinite btw, it's been emptied out before) present at the Sa-Matra, it also has a homeworld guard like Admiral ZEX or the Aqua Helix planet unless you use the Pet.

Before I played UQM (during SC2 original, that is), i used the talking pet only after I was in the view with the Sa-Matra, so it is quite easy to break through the ring. it is just like any inter-system engagement. After each fight with a battlegroup you get a few seconds of contact free time, in which you could fly to the close-up view of planet and moons.

But you cannot win against the Sa-Matra Guard without the Talking Pet.
But the Kohr-Ah will not destroy that cuddly, sweet little fellow. Luckily...

My fifth attempt at posting this *gritting teeth*

My thoughts:

Ironman Challenge - easy enough I would think if you can survive along enough to get credits with the Melnorme for the fuel.

Minimalist Challenge - Not a challenge at all if you can fight.

Stoneman Challenge - Not hard either, unless you want Zex's creature.

Peacekeeper Challenge - not possible, unless you wait on the Kohr-Ah.  Otherwise to complete the game, you need to destroy 10 Umgah, 6 Mycon, and 5 Druuge, besides the Sa-Matra and guardians.

Speedman Challenge - been there, done that, got the T-shirt.

Hermitman Challenge - there are people on here that claim they have played through the entire game without going to the starbase the first time (of course, the Chmmr send you there afterwards).

No. IIRC there isn't a "first six" -- that ring *itself* is an infinitely large battlegroup where you keep on fighting until you die or escape.
