Oh, and mstr, you are a total idiot, and don't know what you're talking about.


You, NEMT are obviously incapable of any form of thinking, but I'll explain:

Censored: What I don't understand is if they (Kzer-Za) had the Sa-Matra in their possession, why didn't they use it to defeat the other races?

mstr: In the end of the war Kzer-za DID USE sa-matra against the alliance.

NEMT: No one cares if they used it against the Alliance, we're talking about the Kohr-Ah.

Just quit this kind of bitching to avoid getting it back. Thank you.

Siding with NEMT on this was clearly a mistake. You're both trolls. Cut it out. Stop talking to each other or something.

A thought...

While it's interesting to read these conversations like this, I have to be wondering if Paul and Fred are sitting back laughing their balls off reading some of this.  I know they're probably not those kind of people, but I'm thinking it must be funny to someone who knows the intention of their storyline to have people debating back and forth like this...

My two cents (Euro cents that is!) on the Sa-Matra question: I do believe the green thingies and the yellow fireballs are made by the Sa-Matra as self-defensive weapons to prevent the Sa-Matra being destroyed or sabotaged by anyone who doesn`t have the rigth access-code.
The most likely reason, why the Ur-Quan took so long to bring the Great-Trophy into the war against the alliance is probably it`s slow travelling speed. Such a great ship must need a long time and an immense amount of energy to travel between stars. And since the Chenjesu were apparently the hardest opponent inside the Alliance, the Ur-Quan brought the Sa-Matra directly against the Chenjesu when they arrived.
Sadly, the Sa-Matra was not fast enough in following the Ur-Quan fleet into the last fight of the Shofixti.

But the asteroid field is exogenous to the Sa-Matra, and those fireballs stop coming when you disable the asteroid field's shield generators. So it seems unlikely that they're really from the Sa-Matra.

Actually, I've been killed by the fireballs and the green things after destroying the shield generators. Several times. In fact, that was the most frustrating part about beating the game: you could have an awesome fleet that tears through the Ur-Quan ships, a grandiose display of Pkunk/Yehat prowess in getting those generators down, and after that your ship could still be knocked off course by those little green things and destroyed by the fireballs.

Which isn't to say I don't like it that way. It's more of a challenge. =)

That's an interesting challenge, though easily beaten considering you can destroy the green and fire balls after you destroy the generators - where then they don't re-generate  Cheesy

How do you kill the fireballs? I know the green things can be killed with a single hellbore cannon shot, but I think the point defense just disables them for a second or two unless you hit them a few times. As for the fireballs... I'm too busy trying to fly into the Sa-Matra to bother with trying to destroy them. With as many crew pods as I bring along, they wouldn't be a problem except that the green things knock me right into them.

My only other option was to rely a bit on luck, which has served me relatively well so far. =)

Zapsats cancel with fireballs - you can also turn them to overblown solar wind with the chmmr laser.

Just keep hitting the fireballs with lots of little shots and they die that way too.

Another thing about the Sa-Matra. It seems that everyone is in agreement that when you attack it, it's either only in defensive mode, or the Quans inside are knocked out by the Talking Pet, whichever.

Seeing as the active Sa-Matra can apparently wipe Broodhomes off the map before they get into range, I'm inclined to agree.

But in that case, what's the deal with the Chmmr? I mean, their ships aren't even close to the Chenjesu range-wise, and they aren't as fast as the Mrnhrm ships. True, they have ZapSats protecting them, but even regualr ships can wipe those out. Well, some of them anyway. So waht good would they be against the Sa-Matra? I mean, that's the reason the C&M got their butts kicked, no? they were doing alright against the regular Quan forces, and then they got blasted into bits. the Chmmr, while undoubtedly great ships against the rest of the Hierarchy couldn't really defeat the Sa-Matra anyway, so what's the point of merging at all?
