I dunno. Probably a toss-up between the Orz, Yehat, and Pkunk.

(first post)

I'd have to say...

1: Spathi - obvious reasons.

2: Ur-Quan - They are one of the most fleshed-out villain races that I have seen in games so far.  Their ships are good, and they have a good design.

3: Melnorme - best merchants that I have seen yet.

4: Human - Obviously.

Least favorite race:

VUX - who are THEY to call ANYONE ugly?

Most favourite:
Humans - obvious reasons. And Cruiser are pretty good, comparing to their cost
Kzer-Za - nice ships, and good intensions
Chmmr - nice ships, but not much beyond that
Arilou - the whole idea of "extended family" and influence upon Humans
Yehat - honorable
Spathi - best texts

Most hateful:
VUX - bigots, but Intruders are OK
Mycon - i doubt they are even self-aware - mindless planets doomers
Kohr-Ah - unbalanced ships - and genocidal people
Druuge - heinous slave traders

Oh come on, how can you NOT like the Kohr-Ah? I mean, they are genocidal maniacs, but still. Their ships are cool.

I never really like the Chmmr myself, I mean sure their ship is good, but the Chmmr themselves are boring and have that grating robot voice.

And for some reason the VUX remind me of the French. I have no idea why.

The exact same thing went through my head when I met them. My favourite races from SC2 are the Arilou, Melnorme, and Yehat. The rest are good but nothing trumps honour and business men >: D.

My picks:

Spathi - Great Dialog and good ships
Yehat - Good Dialog and good ships
Kohr-Ah - Good dialog, devestating ships.

Well, yes - Kohr-Ah ships ARE cool. But a bit too powerful. And the idea of their Trophy Pits - creepy. But have nice quotes though, like that "You did. We did. We can. No.". Besides their murderous doctrine and maniacal genocide orgy, yes, they are OK.

I too don't like Chmmr race much. But only serious threat to their Avatars are Mauler and Marauders - that why i wrote "nice ships" and nothing beside

VUX - French - thats right. But I too don't have idead why.

Damn, am I the only person who likes the Thraddash?

Come on, all their ridicolous cultures that manage to nuke each other into or out of space, the stone age and everything else?

Also, they make for damn good fun in Super Melee. Nothing like friend everything! (Well, almost. A few ships pose a threat ;-) )

I think the Thraddash are great fun, both to talk with and fight as. But the Spathi beat them in both regards. Tongue

I like the Thraddash. And I never really thought the VUX were ugly, I thougt they looked pretty cool. personally I think the ugliest are the Druuge.

And I also like the Melnorme. have you ever said you were going to steal from them in an experimental game? they have some interesting dialogue.

Well, Thraddash are funny. How easy to foul them ("We are the Fat Jerks") or how they misunderstood when Captain say them to be peaceful. And other nice quotes like "... until then, get lost!" But their ships are pretty weak.

Er, the Traddash ship is not weak by any means!!!

The afterburner is useful on so many levels...

For example, Chmmr Avatars are easy to fry. Ur-Quan crew members are a joke, as are Orz ones.

I find that generally moving around very quickly works best with the Thraddash ship...

A couple of enemies are tough customers though, but that only makes it more fun...
