Poll: describe the Zoq
« on: April 03, 2007, 07:17:09 pm »

We're having a little revert-war at the Ultronomicon, regarding the description of the Zoq (the green guy).

Which of the poll options would you consider apparent enough to be included in the description of the Zoq?

Plant-like, definitely. It was even my initial catagorization of the Zoq when I first saw them. Plus, there was that whole arguement where the Zoq theatened to "blow a cloud of spores" at the Pik, so I think that pretty much cements it.

To be completely honest (and without meaning to sound insulting), I'm not sure where this "frog-like" description is coming from. Huh

Their general shape seems to me that of a frog.

The Zoq Fot Piq are a very weird race. What kind of beings they are, is not told. But they seem like some kind of instruments. I voted for plantlike, that's nearest of it.

Perhaps the evolution of the Zoq began with both a plant and a frog. The plant, likely a lilypad, beniftted greatly from the frog, whenever the frog was on it. So as a parasitic means of survival the lillypad devised a way to trap the frog, keeping it attacked to the pad itself. In a countermeasure, the frog adapted and was able to livewitht he pad attached. Successions of evolutionary periods hae formed the Zoq as we see them today.

I think it looks more like a plant than a frog, because it looks more like a mutated alien lily pad.

Definitely more plant-like than anything else. Just like CeeVee, that was what I always thought they looked like.

From the time I first saw it to this point, I have always thought that Zoq is a plant. So I'll say plant-like. I wonder why The Captain never remarks on this like in the case of Supox ("Plants can't be intelligent"), though.

Is it definitely a Zoq? I thought they had forgotten who was who. I know they cant agree on who the Fot is. In anycase I went for the plant option. Although now I think about it, maybe its more fungal - as the other two appear to be

Looks like I only have an evolved Hydralisk at my side. Wink
No wonder. You can't tell how exactly he looks like either.  Grin Kind of a big Hydralisk with legs... maybe.

Good. So the silly frog thing can be removed. And there was much rejoicing.
