The Melnorme continues:

I believe you call their star Delta Vulpeculae. Their home was a moon revolving about the second planet.


This is where you find the Taalo shield, so it's definitely their homeworld.

That's the Melnorme, not the Orz.  Besides, it's almost impossible to tell whether the Orz are lying, because you can't understand what they're saying in the first place.

I know it was sarcasm, it just doesn't apply here.

Besides, I don't think either the Melnorme or the Orz ever DO lie.

Actually, there are very few liars in SC2.  I'm sure the Spathi lie occasionally, the Orz and the Arilou are impossible to tell, the Ur-Quan and Kohr-Ah consider lying to be beneath them, and most of the others have no reason to.  Even the Druuge are remarkably straight forward in their dealings with you--the descriptions of the useless precursor artifacts don't contain any actual outright LIES, do they?

The Trident or whatever it was... A friend of mine gave 100 crew for that piece of malconceived syreen 'ceremonial weaponry'... ::sigh::

Yeah, but they never say "This is a Precursor artifact with godly powers."  They say something like, "What mysterious power will you hold in your hands when YOU have this holy artifact?  Buy it and find out!"

Despite the horrible things that the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za have done to people all across the globe, NEMT pointed out that almost ALL the races enslaved by the Ur-Quan were very happy with their status.  The Yehat, Ilwrath, and VUX were fighting all they wanted.  The Syreen are blissfully happy on their new planet.  The Mycon are hard to tell, although it seems they had plans to overthrow the Ur-Quan later.  The Androsynth and Shofixti are pretty much gone, so there's no knowing their opinion on the idea, and the Thraddash are very pleased to be battle thralls, despite their lack of action.

Seems like only the humans and the Chenjesu/Mmrnmhrm were upset about being enslaved.

Yes, that's all fine and good ... but let's not forget what happens if you DON'T take action.  Battle Thralls or Fallow Slaves ... the Kohr-Ah doesn't care.  Let's face it, you're doing all sentience a favor.  (Especially with the handling of the Dill-rats/Fat Obstreperous Jerks solution.)

[...] so they ordered the remaining eleven races of the Milieu to attack and destroy the Taalo home planet.
This planet was one of the few Milieu worlds located in this region of space.
But i`d like to know who the other sentient milieu races wer who once dwelt here?
Apparentlz, the Taalo were the only ones from this region, who were well known throughout all sentient mileu space. The others were not that well known, but anyway, who and where were they? Were the Keel-Verezy one of them and developed in the time until now their invisibility device, because they feared that the Ur-Quan might return after the slave revolt and the beginning destruction/enslavement of the other sentient mileu races? Have they given their hiding technology to other races from that time?

Oh, I'm not suggesting that what the captain did was the wrong decision.  But it's interesting to imagine it that way after you've been thinking of the Ur-Quan as the enemy for so long...
