Heh. I love how some people write half a page and other simply give a race name. I think I'll go with the latter (almost)

Well, they are all cool...
but I'll select Orz
In some way they are a lot more sinister than Kohr-Ah...
Did I say they? IT, of course Smiley

I'd have to say  my favorites are as most people have said, the Yehat.  Ever since I played Super Melee on my friends 386 (we didn't realize there was a whole other game!) they have been my favorite ships to fly.  Actually talking to them in SC2 was amazing and I came to love their culture and history.  The music for them was also awesome.  '

I also really liked/disliked the Orz.  They had a very cool/creepy feel to them, and while I appreicated all the help they gave me (their ships are one of my favorites to fly) I could never quite shake the question 'are we gonna end up like the Androsynth?'  They just had a cool backstory that I always wanted to learn more about.  Any new sequel I hope would definitely include more about them....

Spathi: Hello, hunam. What would you like to threaten me about today?
Captain: ...
Captain: PUNCHING YOU IN THE EYE, SPATHI.
Captain: I BET IT FEELS LIKE PUNCHING JELLY
Captain: WE'RE COMING ABOARD TO FIND OUT
Spathi: AAAAAAAAAAAAA

Oh, god, I'm gonna bust a seam...this just concretes my love for those crazy Spathi!

lol. My fave races are:
The yehat
The Spathi
Also, I reckon that should be added into the game...

I'm gonna have to say Chenjesu... sure the ship is slow but with the doggies to sap their energy and distract them a bit I have found them very useful... If you use them a lot then you can get quite good with them... thats only for melee though.. as far as acually having a favorite race story wise..

I could never love the ultwigs.. they are how you say.. the emo space people..
then there are the spathi.. just gotta love fwiffo and they are great at melee, but they are lacking a bit in the area of courage..

 the yehats are great... the bravehearts of the game... they can be pretty cheap in melee too with there sheilds.. though they can only sustain about 1 or 2 hits from any ship... t

he traadash are what I like the call the arnold kinda terminator race.. they are all about fighting.. but  as we all know get owned a bit at everything...

I don't know what the creators were thinking when they made the supox... i think there ship is a flower or something.. i dunno... they aren't very usful for anything though...

you have both the ur quans with their talking frog things they have tough ships, but thats only because of the big crew count.. if not for that then they wouldn't be any better than the other ships...

you have the zot-fots, pkunk, ilwarth who all have close range ships that pretty much are not quite usful.. to me anyways....

the umguh are kinda weird as are the mycons but the mycons ship like the chenjesu is good with its homing projectiles..

out of all theses I'd have to go with the shofixi.. kinda like japanese space culture...

other than that I love the ability to steal crew with the syreen!

I'd have to say that the Ur Quan were always my favourite (Even though I destroyed them). Power to the Urks!

I Like the Androsynth, just wish they were in the game.

Next would be the Yehat.

Eh I know this is an OLD thread but; hell its realavent to me at least. I love to Zoq-Fot-Pik and the Spathi; they're funny as hell.
 

In fact all the races are pretty funny; I don't quite like the Thradesh though for some reason.

For a single race, probably the Orz. A close second, The mycon. best voices, the VUX. something about the odd accent and tone just... fits. For the loudest race, it's gotta be the Yehat screaming about the pkunk or whatever. I had to take my headphones off, but in a good way. For the funniest, the Spathi. For the best music, the Yehat again.

But my very favorite has to be the orz.
