The Orz, of course. Followed by the Thraddash.

I also like the concept of the Druuge a lot. Not in a "I want to join the Crimson Corporation" sort of way, mind you.

Have to say, so I'll just list some races off the top of my head with the pro's:

 Orz - They just freaked me out the first time I played the game, and I've loved them ever since Smiley

Arilou - because of their connection with possible real-life themes ... very skillfully done.

Utwig - best ship in the game. Period.

Supox and Slylandro - because they're so different than any other race (I happened to like SC3, and that makes these 2 races particularly interesting - for obvious reasons if you've played the game ... The slylandro have already survived one "eternal1" "attack", and the supox probably would too, which is probably why the Orz killed them off)

Ur-Quan Kzer-za - Because they actually believe they're misunderstood

Haha, I must be some kind of freak or something because I adore the VUX. Something about them just hugely amuses me. I always end up pestering them for hours.

I've always loved the Spathi, of course, and the Pkunk are another favorite of mine. The Thraddash too! They're fun to tweak. I also have a soft spot for the Utwig. Something about giving them the repaired Ultron and seeing them so happy makes me feel all fuzzy inside.
I love the Yehat's music and their devotion to the Shofixti. I always feel really moved when they begin the Revolution once they see their children again.

Darn it, I love all the races.

Heh, actually, that was a friend of mine being goofy on AIM. I just loved the mental picture of it so much that I'VE DECIDED TO HANG ON TO IT.

Yehat: I love the sound their guns make. Just makes you yell "BLAM BLAM BLAM" outloud.

Umgah: The funniest race, and I'm a biology major.

and the Spathi because of their dry, self depricating humor.

Zarla: Oh, no wonder I don't remember it.  I just figured it was from SC3 or some-such.  That game did have the oh-so-entertaining "green monster on the vid screen" incident...

Shofixti have always been cool to me, the kooky space rats Grin.
Also the Yehat - honorable angry scottish birds for the win!
And their sister species, the Pkunk. Their ships, their outlook, their penchant for suddenly realizing absolutely true things out of nowhere... Grin
Aaaand finally the Melnorme, the eternal capitalists. Much more principled than the Druuge.

I think that's it.

The Melnorme. Their only real interest is in the almighty credit, but you couldn't ask for a more honest trader. The stuff they sell you is relatively cheap and works exactly as it's supposed to, and the information they sell you is true and worth having.

I am just starting in the sc2 game, but the ships in the melee game I allways liked more were Vux (for the tactics possibilities) , the Mycon, the MMrn(whatever) as at least in vs cpu mode is the only one I can use to kill easily an Ur-Quan in the top level.  The Chenjesu. About the races, race art, personality...lol, just have not seen enough of the game...But yup, like Spathi's sense of humour.

Scum? I don't think so. "Master" is more like it.

Either the VUX for their "human"-like personalities (yes, it's sad to admit, but we humans are just as vile as the VUX...I mean, uh, in our mental er...workings) or the Yehat, because, you gotta admit, the Yehat would clobber the Galaxy's ass if they were truly evil Cheesy
