Ok, I think that's everything I needed. Sounds like my friend might've been a bit lax writing stuff down. Thanks again Smiley

Here's one I didn't notice before. If you threaten Fwiffo enough, he will give you a new set of co-ordinates for Spathiwa. These co-ordinates are actually for the VUX Beast planet!

*Sigh*

Travis really seems to have managed to mess himself up. We're trying to get the Sun Device from Beta Brahe. The problem is, he's already done the Mycon/Syreen ambush, and now the Mycon are back (in all his saved games, I fear) and refusing to move away. Is there any way of getting the device now short of waiting in hyperspace for the Ur-Quan war to finish and the Kohr-Ah to wipe out the Mycon?

It's been quite a while since I let the Mycon go to Organon and not go to Beta Brahe.

Is he meeting infinite guards?  As I remember you still have to kill a few Mycon even after luring the main group away to get access to Beta Brahe I.

If he's not meeting infinite guards, he's got some Mycon huntin and killin to do.

I think he is - the screen display when we got to the planet was the usual Mycon ships stretching right to the edge in all directions, and the dialogue didn't seem to suggest that fightin' would do us any good.

Are we screwed?

I think that you've run into the little problem called picking the wrong planet. I remember having read something somewhere that the artefact is not on the Mycon Homeworld or something. I can't remember what the coördinates where you have to look are.  Embarrassed Could anybody help by suplieing the coördinates? Or at least give a hint.

I'm pretty sure it's the right planet - the Mycon on it describes a great warmth beneath him, or something to that effect.

If so, is there nothing to do but wait for the Kohr-Ah to kill them off? Sad

I suppose that's one option. But aren't all Mycon worlds a living hell (or paradise, it depends on what you prefer Smiley)? Remember what happened to Syra (the Syreen homeplanet, I think.). It was a beautiful place, a paradise (to human standards). Then the Mycon came in, and the rest is history.

I read through your post on september 27. From that I conclude that it's probably too late and what remained of the Mycon had allready returned home. I never had that happen myself (I simply raced there as fast as my ship's engines could take me), so it may be impossible to be too late, but it looks to me that waiting for the Kohr-Ah is the only option left. But when they do, get ready to move fast, or there won't be a galaxy left to protect.

If the mycon made it back, they still have a huge fleet protecting the world, but it isn't an infinite fleet of DOOM.

Are you sure? It has the same visual appearance as one, IIRC. Roughly how many ships would they have?

You should be seeing less than 10 ships.
