Spathi Empire!
« on: May 15, 2006, 12:44:45 am »

So if the Spathi ever decide to stop being cowards and start taking over the galaxy with their insanelly good ships, what do you think there first targets would be?

I would think both the Ur Quan races would be their first targets for expansion since there ships are so good against them

Er, I think the story is a tad different from how the game mechanics ended up turning out in Spathi vs Ur-Quan matches. Fwiffo may have been a killing machine, but I doubt the Spathi would stand much of a chance against the Ur-Quan as a whole.

All things being considered, they would probably exterminate the Umgah first, as payback for past mental and physical trauma.

They would probably enslave the humans first - we are the weakest race after all.

Weak ships, but sooo mean people, especially captains, and especially this one in a shiny precursor vessel...  Wink

The Spathi Empire will attack the Ur-Quan, demanding them to share the Slave Shield technology.

I find it more plausible that the Spathi would all suddenly die due to heart-equivalent attack related causes.

I can see them taking over the Thraddish or doing well against Umgah.
However, I can't really see them taking over much. Even if something caused
the entire race to be brave, their weak weapons and slow re-charge rate
would likely prevent them from being a serious threat.

This had better happen before the events of SC2, because there is no way they would beat the Chmmr.

The spathi are great against many of the most expensive ships, but not all ships.

True, but before the events of SC2, their neighbors, the Androsynth, would rip them to pieces.

It comes back to the same old issue. No one ship is perfect. There is
always another ship which can (or normally will) defeat it.
Of course, there is the chance the Spathi could use conquored races
to fight for them. They might not do well against the Chmmr or
'Synth, but I'm sure they could defeat someone else for the
purpose of battle slaves.

The spathi would probably be so afraid of a slave uprising that they would abandon their posts.  Grin

There are ships that have weaknesses, but few weaknesses are as totally lopsided as Spathi vs. Chmmr. Only Earthling vs. Chmmr and Arliou vs. Chmmr come close.

I mean, if it was the Druuge we were talking up here, then Earthlings are pretty strong against them, and would be a problem, but it's not a showstopper.

As for Spathi battle-thralls, hmm... who would they start with? Umgah? Okay, who does that help them with? Earthlings, I guess. Okay, we're getting somewhere.

Okay, then... is there ANY race which could NOT do this, that is, leverage power over the races it's strong against to take the place over?

I could see a real disadvantage to trying to take over the galaxy with
a fleet of scout ships. Small crew, small battry, small weapon. The
only way to do serious damage requires either a lot of time or
a lot of boom-boom.

1rst of all Conquering galaxy with Shofixty scouts would be easy. One no limit in crew considering how fast they populate. 2 thiers practically no limit of Scouts u can come out with, considering they so cheap. And most ships are blasted with just 1 glory device activated. Few need 2. Sometimes a Ur-Qaun or a Kohr-ah can get a lucky shot and kill the scout from a distance though. But rarely.

2nd of all. You guys are talking about the Spathi eluder like they wont improve the ship. They are geniouses when they need to be. When being chased by the Evil Ones they advanced from stone to Atomic age, In what 2 centurys? If they decided to start conquering they would probably come out with a ship 3 times as powerful as a Chmmr ship. Somewhere within a decade of the war. Especially if they could get thier hands on Ur-Quan tech when they conquer them.
