Poll: What SC race would you like most to be?!
« on: April 04, 2007, 02:57:10 pm »

There have been polls on what race you like, what race is the most original etc., but what would you like to be? (Earthlings and Syreen included.
Also, don't choose Shofixti if in fact you want to be specifically Tanaka - to personally replenish an entire species, heh heh...)

Arilou: I just wanna know all this interdimensional mystery!
Pkunk: They're always happy and good-natured. Even during their assimilation by the Yehat.
Syreen: In peace with nature, without several annoying social restrictions...

I'd have chosen Dnyarri, but then I *frumpled* at the prospect of spending an entire life just giving orders...

Every race has it problems.  I voted for Supox because they are a calm race (though plants)

Earthling: Even though they can be rather pathetic, they are still good old humans.
Orz: It would be nice to experience something different some time...
Precursor: All their secret are belong to me!

What kind of beings the mighty Precursors have been...?

Sorry I've missed part of the story. Is it said somewhere in the game why did they leave, and where?
Did they all die?

Whooooo knooooows...

The Precursors remain one of the most persistent unanswered questions in Star Control (being basically the only one featured in SC1 and 2).

The Slylandro tell you that they left for the galactic core (also the direction indicated by the Rainbow Worlds arrow) aboard great circular battleships (like the Mark 2 from the ending):

I wish I knew more of the information you seek, Traveller
but we last saw the Shaggy Ones just over 39 Drahn ago
and very little from that era has remained intact in our history chants.
Hold on a moment, let me consult with associates Joyous Lifting and Sullen Plummet.

Joyous Lifting, who has a better memory than I
recalls that the Shaggy Ones were described as being... worried.
They were always hurrying from place to place, seeking knowledge
as though they were in a desperate search for some important secret
some answer to a question that they never shared with us.
Sullen Plummet remembers that the last time the Shaggy Ones visited our world
they came aboard a great circular starship, one even larger than your own.
They had discovered their Answer and were leaving to go somewhere
and they didn't tell us exactly where `somewhere' was.

Joyous Lifting has remembered something else
though it does not relate to the Shaggy Ones' Question, Answer, Departure Destination.
What my associate communicates is the description of a set of ten worlds, unlike all others.
The Shaggy Ones either discovered these planets or... this is garbled.. assembled them?
We were told the planets were... again this is confusing... organized (?) in some pattern
which in some way alluded to the Shaggy Ones' ultimate fate.
One of the worlds was described as orbiting one of a pair of blue stars not far from here.
Another of these worlds circled a large white sun.
That is all we can remember.

1) Umgah - Life would be one big practical joke!!!
2) Pik - FRUNGY!!!!
3) Original Ur-Quan - They seem pretty interesting, quite a bit like humanity infact.

Orz: It sounds fun to be Orz, and it makes you really powerful (since the whole "race" is a single being, and you would be that being!)

Chenjesu: Chenjesu are more intelligent than humans. I like having intelligent friends with whom to make intelligent conversation. This would be much more possible among the Chenjesu.

Yehat: More logical than the average Star Control race, but also emotional in a good way - they're one of the most _real_ of the Star Control races. Also, they have a sense of unity sometimes that I can never get with these gosh-darn Earthlings, since they tend to be corrupt and/or stupid so much.

Taalo : (Cool! Im a rock!) Immune to the Dnyarri
Ur-Quan Kzer-Za : C'mon! They conquered half the galaxy(or our corner of it)
Chenjesu : Cheaper phone bills, universal respect.

They bowed to me, but I bade them stand. They cheered to me, but I made them silent. They fought for me and I bade them peace. They died for me, and I am content.

Yehat would have been next in my list, but we are only allowed 3 votes.
