My personal opinion (feel free to ignore it), is that the Spathi actually sounded pretty good. They would be one of the voice overs that I wouldn't even touch.

Scum? I don't think so. "Master" is more like it.

Not to be mean, but I am ignoring that, because EVERY voice (with the Exception of the Slylandro Probes) MUST be redone.

ANNOUNCEMENT: IT has been decided that the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah are to be voiced by a chick/woman/girl, whatever you want to call females of our species. But, we do not have anyone to do the said voice, so I am going to need volunteers.

REQUIREMENTS: Your voice needs to be dark, sexy, depressing, and of course, somewhat emotionless (not monotone, mind you). Thank you.

By who?

Yes, the Kohr-Ah are ruled by a female (Primat), but so are a lot of other races. What makes the Kohr-Ah warrant a feminine voice over other such races?

It's the Talking Pet that does the talking.

Yes, it was decided by myself, Valaggar, and several other consultants who will remain anonymous for now.

1. It is more aesthetically pleasing.

2. It is conceivable and likely that they would choose to enlist female talking pets as opposed to male ones, for their own prideful reasons.

It sounds like Valaggaria now has population 2.

Let's see... The population of Valaggaria doubled in about a month. At that rate, Valaggaria will have world domination in about 32 more months. Oh joy.

Yes, we are like the Probes....except we're better than them - we don't rely on gyroscopes to remain mobile Grin

I think a feminine voice would be a mistake for this. It just doesn't fit.

Also, sexy? Huh

Yeah sexy Kohr-Ah sounds like an abomination to me. However, I don’t have to use the voice pack if I don’t want to so go nuts!

 I'm going for a Kerrigan-like feel. Please, don't knock it until you've heard it.

I'd be willing to give it a shot.  Are the Mycon taken?

I was gonna do them if noone else took them, but it's all good, this just means less work for me to do, lol. Alright, I'll send you a sample script and you can audition.

OK, could you send it to aescudal@lycos.com?  I rarely check the one that's been on my profile here.

And I might have someone willing to do the Kohr-Ah voice.  I'll see if she's interested in the slightest.
