However, she did introduce me to the fandom. Via her ZEX-slash-Captain fangirling. IT KINDA RUBBED OFF A BIT. XD And by "a bit" I mean "I'm madly in love with a fictional xenophile, halp D: "

I dont even want to ask. Well I do, but I feel the answer would scar me beyond repair.

Basically, some people in the SC2 fandom like Admiral ZEX a lot, to the point of having a crush on him and/or fully supporting his efforts to flirt with and seduce the Captain. Lukipela calls them soul-scarring deviant schoolgirls on speed.  Kiss

Share the love!

-You raise the temperature on your thermostat and conduct your domestic business in your underwear to simulate being a Syreen.

-In the ultimate display of lameness, you match up Bud Light's Real Men of Genius with species and/or individuals in Star Control II: the Spathi are either Mr. 80 SPF Sunblock-Wearer (http://www.sendspace.com/file/xjslrh) or Mr. Paranoid-of-the-Ocean Guy (http://www.sendspace.com/file/uf1y03), Admiral ZEX is Mr. Really Big Pet Snake-Owner (http://www.sendspace.com/file/r932ms) (or possibly a perverted spin on Mr. Exotic Cowboy Boot-Wearer [http://www.sendspace.com/file/8goy7r]), the Thraddash are Mr. Overly Competitive Touch Football Game-Player (http://www.sendspace.com/file/4naxh5), the Druuge are Mr. Dishonest Cable TV-Hooker-Upper (http://www.sendspace.com/file/iwiplg)....

-You try to get dates by wailing semi-seductively at people from a distance.

-You spend copious amounts of time trying to classify the ever-perplexing VUX according to Earth's taxonomy.  (Seriously, what are they?  They should be mollusks, but they're amphibious and bipedal.  Furthermore, how can the Shofixti be marsupials and rodents?)

-You call your species "erect hominids."

-You refer to the cosmic horror that resides in your house as an Orz.

Nothing previously posted in this thread can even come close to this.  Thanks for showing everybody else how it's done.

Is that supposed to mean that I've achieved some sort of lifetime award for nerdiness?  Wow, I feel simultaneously honored and humbled.  Further hammering that dissonant nail into the cognitive wooden board is that I've actually done everything else on that list, except for the wailing.

So, I might as well add more:
-You play the game's themes on your instrument of choice (e.g., a piano).
-You use such quotations as "Our bodies are almost exactly alike--except for...certain parts," "We can get to know one another...expand our interspecies relationship," and "What are those glowy bits?" as pick-up lines.  (Bonus points if your attempt is successful; bonus bonus points if you call your new partner your "darling human" or your "human love" afterward.)
-You try to make your own Star Control plushies.
-You repurpose the Styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners that come in solar system model kits to build a miniature replica of a Spathi Eluder.
-You begin to notice similarities between the Deep Ones and the VUX.
-You write at least one essay analyzing either the game or its fanbase/fandom.  (Bonus points if you write it in professional, multisyllabic language--or, to put it another way, Spock Speak.)
-You describe terrestrial animals by relating them to Star Control II aliens, rather than the other way around (e.g., referring to caterpillars as "tiny Ur-Quan," humans as "Syreen of other shades," cephalopods as "bodiless VUX," or mushrooms as "non-sapient Mycon").

Just came to mind. Applies to both male and female gamers, and couples, try this too!

-You quote the love scene with Talana and the captain as you make out/love with your girl/boy friend.
-You advise the above statement.
-You have dreams like I have quoted below. (See sig)

I had a dream in which I was abducted by aliens, but they were Syreen. By the end of it I ended up being the one probing them.
Three reactions came to mind here:
-You probed them with WHAT?

-So, you were a "Syreen-penetrator"?

-Now I want to be abducted by Spathi.


As soon as I get a boyfriend, I'm going to try quoting the Talana/Zelnick love scene.

Personally, I prefer ZEX's flattery over the sex scene. "Beautiful, robust human" just rolls off the tongue~

(... though I have made reference to the "You're not going to turn into some horrible space monster and eat me, are you?" [/from memory] while jokingly flirting with people. XD OH CAPTAIN, SUCH A DWEEB. <3 )

I have zero ability to hold a tone, but I love to sing. Loudly. Usually I'll listen to music on my headphones while doing the dishes. It apparently sounds pretty hilarious when the Ur-Quan theme comes on and I burst out in Dum-dum-dum dudu dum, du du dum, du du dum, dum! and so forth.

Ur-Quan theme eh? I usually sing the background part rather than the melody.
