The Umgah, obviously--they do all that genetic experimentation on themselves (at least, I think that part's canon; I may have just extrapolated it as likely) and you can't convince me that's not cool.  Who doesn't want to transform themselves into a Lovecraftian horror? Cheesy

Also, the Melnorme.  I'd love having all that information.  I really wish there'd been more bits of info you could buy (I understand why what you can buy is more or less limited to useful things, gamewise, but for my own curiosity I wish there could have been more).

I almost--almost--said Orz, because it's so tempting, just to know anything else about them.  Then I thought about it a little, and it seems like their home dimension is really boring or unpleasant or something (hence why they like ours) and I'm just not sure.  Besides, it might be horrible to be an Orz.  It's kind of hard to tell, given how little we know about their society.

It's kind of the same thing with the Precursors.  I mean, who knows where they are now, or if there are even any of them left?  Definitely tempting, though.

And with the Chmmr and Chenjesu, too.  Because I really wonder what it would be like to be made out of rock, but it seems like it might get old fast.

...If I could go back and edit my choices, I'd pick either Pkunk or Supox for the third.  They just seem so cool and happy.  Probably Pkunk, because of their connection to various supernatural stuff.

Yes, the Umgah really do that experiments on themselves - they implant as many eyes, mouths and tentacles as they can get. That's why they look like this.

Apropos, the Chenjesu are made of silicon crystals, not rock - those were the Taalo.

Exactly!  Think something would be cool/useful/funny?  In it goes!

I do think it's sort of odd that they all seem to look alike (even the different ones on a single ship!), but then, maybe that's a blueprint they came up with to be optimized for combat/star travel.

Huh.  Well, after a little bit of searching I see I was wrong about what qualifies as a "rock".  Still.  It seems like it would be so different.

What I'd really want to do, though, is spend a little time (a few months?) as every race.  It would be incredibly educational, I think. Cheesy  And then to be able to switch around at will after that (I feel Pkunkish today!).

ETA: Not the Dnyarri, though.  My loathing for them is intense.

I'd be a Chmmr, Earthling or the guy in the back of the ZFP, mainly because he's cool, because he doesn't talk, but he knows stuff you wouldn't know, and you'll never know what he knows Tongue. He also gets to fire stuff out of his eye, I think.

A male Syreen is just too tempting to pass up!  Grin

I'd have to say though, Druuge are probobly the least appealing race. Furnace Duty doesn't appeal to me for some reason.  Tongue

Druuge are amongst the best if you're very high on the social ladder. About how the Druuge you sell the Burvixese 'Caster for free becomes.

Optimization? Come on. One Umgah dared the rest to modify themselves to all look alike. Once that was done, they decided it was so funny not being able to tell each other apart, that they kept it that way.

LOL.  Okay, so maybe that's more likely.

BLASPHEMER!

No unholy Star Control 3 material is allowed in this most hallowed place! Star Control 3 is an insult to all that which is good, to all that which stems from the most merciful and loving Twin Gods of Star Control, Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III!

Translation: Star Control 3 is not canon. Star Control 3 is not the canonical Star Control sequel.

Chill, man. No one said the precursors are Ortogs. That would be crazy. Nothing to support that idea at all. But they're not dead. They left, remember? Probably coreward bound?

Ouch, I forgot. I haven't thought about the Precursors in a long, long time...

Kzer-Za:  Imperial Evilness for Everyone! 

Mmrnmhrm:  The Mmrnmhrm fight ceaselessly to protect humanity from the evil Decep-- I, Uh, mean the Hierarchy!  Yes, the Hierarchy. >_>

Humanity.  Because I am one of its members.

Just the Earthlings, humanity, homo sapiens, whatever. I don't feel like becoming a transracial.

That said, if I were to live my entire life as one particular race(so that I don't feel like I spurned my original race or something), I'd be interested in the Melnorme(information-based society)and Chenjesu(they seem pretty wise, plus it'd be interesting to find out how crystals can be sentient beings).

Zoq, Fot, Pik, because they are three distinct options and I'm allowed to choose up to three. It's a trap for obsessive people, really. Sad
