Syreen "special" encounter?
« on: January 05, 2003, 11:54:53 pm »

This probably belongs in the bug forum but when Talana shows her gratitude for you does it stop the game for anyone else?  The screen just sits there with the music playing and you are unable to do anything aside from closing the game.  Sure the sex must be great and all but isn't there a universe to save?  Roll Eyes  Is the only way to continue on with the game avoiding getting intimate with her cause if so I feel sorry for my poor Captain  Grin  Well not a whole lot really since he gets all the fun heh

Not that I particularly want to avoid this encounter, but it's too bad there's no way to avoid it. One of my female friends was sort of icked out when she got to that scene... It was the first hint (that she caught, at least) that her character wasn't a woman.

Can't we have a scene like in B5 when Ivanova is trying to seal that treaty, and the quote: "Next time, my way."
Of course, we'd still have some trouble with the last scene. Hrm. I guess Captain is male no matter what.

The friend in question was not, in fact. Hence the ick. Anyway, the scene with the grandkids and the Mark II sort of screw that up.

Obviously it was someone else who was falsely claiming to be the captain.

I'm sure that the sequels will take that possibility into account.

On the other hand, it certainly explains why none of those grandkids look in the least purple. Wait a moment, no it does... er... wark wark. Now I know I'm confused: I'm talking like a chocobo.

You can avoid the Captain and Talana's... diplomatic session, but I think it has to be done to get the Syreen to send you starship captains. I did everything else with the Syreen, got back their ships, helped them kick the crap out of the Mycon, etc., and went back and said everything there is to say EXCEPT what triggers the sex thing, and no Syreen are showing up at the starbase. Oh well.

Well Scott the problem I find is if you do the sex thing the game locks up(can't handle the heat I guess?).  Which from the sounds of your post is necessary to be able to make Penetrator ships.  Guess it is a bug  :-/

I think that if you press Space to skip the audio, you can get through that sequence.

Yes; Space Bar skips through the current discussion and goes on to your next set of questions/conversation finale.  That's been very helpful to me, not only in this section, but in the entire game, cause my computer has the exact amount of RAM needed to run UQM, and thus slowdown and crashes are rampant.  So it helps a lot to be able to skip through conversations ultra-quick when I already know what they're gonna say so I can hurry up and get to a point where I can save it.  Tongue

So did ya'll figure out if you HAVE to do the sex scene with Talana to win the game?  I can't remember.

And yeah, the captain is a male, unless he had a sex change at the end of the game  Shocked

But I agree, there is very little hint that he is male or female until the end of the game, if you can skip the sex scene, which IIRC, you kind of have to flirt and say yes to.  So you might want to ask your female friend what she was trying to do by saying those things in the first place Wink  I mean, its not like Talana jumps your bones or anything.

And I'm pretty sure you don't need Syreen Penetrators to win the game, I don't remember using a single one, ever to accomplish anything important.

I told her not to leave, because she wanted the ship. The only other option led her to the scene.

Kweh. I thought Syreen were blue, not purple. Anyways, the grandchildren would likely only be a quarter Syreen, what with Zelnick's child(ren) likely marrying Earthlings. Besides, it could be the lighting. In the ending scene, when Zelnick awakens from the coma, she doesn't look particularly blue (slightly but not verily) in the lighting.

Hrmm, I guess this screws over the Pkunk's portent that you'd die at an early age. Unless (dramatic music) you -do- die sometime in UQM2, and Zelnick's son/daughter finds some way to bring you back. That or the coma you're in for those months could be considered 'death' of a sorts, especially when you consider his inner monologue.

*hopes Zelnick censored some of his story for his grandchildren*

The Talana sex scene amused me; I can't really see why it would gross someone out.

I was 7 years old at the time.  Let's just say I was more than confused when that scene had come and gone.  I definately wasn't old enough to appreciate what was going on.  I mean, I thought cooties were gross back then!  I thought that scene was really gross, because while I knew what was happening, I wasn't old enough to think critically about it.
