If I remember correctly, the sentience thresher ripped open hyperspace to do its job. Often destroying entire galaxies in the process. Most likely, with the time elapsing between eternal1 visits, new galaxies formed or something.

The Precursor rainbow worlds were supposed to maintain hyperspace and prevent it from collapsing and destroying the galaxy every time the eternal1s visited.

Actually, how do we know that the precursors didn't travel to other galaxies and set up rainbow worlds there as well? I'm sure they had the technology to do that, if they had the tech to build planets.

Soooo, just what do these eternal ones look like? Do they even show you in the game?

Maybe a precursor were just like "Hey I built this mushroom thing, it can traavel between plaaanets!" and the others were like "Yaaaay!" and then they all deliriously clapped their hands and giggled like little schoolgirls.

Nope! You just dump some glowy orbs into the galacitic core, and everyone goes home happy. Roll Eyes

Bah, I expected as much. Roll Eyes

You know, fighting a faceless, nameless enemy isn't nearly as interesting as a Ur-Quan. At least they had a backstory and personality.

The Yorn and Harika, Xchagger, and K'Tang all seem pretty cool though. And maybe the Llk (or however you spell it), although I haven't seen any videos of them yet. From what the PONAF says, though, they seem interesting.

Actually the idea of  a faceless nameless enemy has some potential.
If done properly it could totally freak you out.
You could be were aware of the danger coming but unsure of it's nature or cause. Some mysterious accidents would keep happening to you and your friends, and anyone coming close to finding out the truth would end up dead. The New Alliance on the border of collapsing due to unbareable stress of fighting an unknown force, allies accusing eachother of betrayal.
As you learned more of the danger (but without uncovering it's nature) it would become obvious that you'll have face the final battle alone, as you fin yourself surrounded by fewer allies every day.

... could be fun, tough like I said it has to be done properly. And tough the starting setup is easy the ending would be hard to make, because once you get answers to questions that freak you out, you tend to be disappointed.

But yes, when I was writing that post, it came to my mind SC3 could have attempted what I was talking about.
