Mycon Dialogue
« on: January 30, 2007, 04:14:52 pm »

I've been running into podships for the last three days now, and it seems like almost every time I bump into them, they say something new.  There is something interesting that has piqued my interest about their dialogue.  When they say things that sound like a "non-Mycon" is speaking -- like their creators, for instance.  There's the bit where someone... else says something about going to a transporter pad and another line about how they should deal with anomolies...

I just find it fasinating.  Does anyone know of a link where I can see all their dialogue listed on a page so I can pore over it for a while and make wild and unsubstantiated connections to the precursors and finally come to the conclusion once and for all what the Mycon are all about? 

I'd be happy to share my ultimate enlightenment with the board once I figure it all out.

uqm-0.6.0-content.uqm is really a .zip file, which you can unzip with whatever you usually use. In that package, you'll find the file content/comm/mycon/mycon.txt
The story behind the Mycon has been confirmed by TFB btw, but I won't spoil your fun by telling it you here.

Bah!  "Official" reports.  They are nothing compared to my wild conspiracy theories!

In all seriousness, though, I would like to know what TFB said about the Mycon, but not until after I come up with some ridiculous ideas of my own.  How would I find their confirmations?

Thanks and thanks again.

I will look into it.

And on a side note, I did a search of the forum for other such threads.  I read the rather long one which hit on basically the same stuff before going off on a tangent about rainbow worlds and the precursors in general.  Good stuff.

According to Star control 3 the Mycon are a Precurser Teraforming method.  They were genetically intended to stay below sentience so they wouldn't be wiped out by the Eternal ones, but they evolved anyway. They evolved and strayed from their genetically intended purpose and wrote their own thought patterns on the Deep Children

Yeah, but Star Control 3 doesn't really exist.  So.... you know.

No, really, though, the TFB confirmation doesn't have anything to do with SC3, does it?

No, the story around Mycon being associated with the Precursors was an idea made by TFB, and had nothing to do with SCnot3.
