Syreen bug? *spoilers*
« on: January 30, 2003, 01:32:40 pm »

Okay, seems I'm screwed. I've gotten the shell fragment (and had it analyzed at the starbase), talked to the Mycon until they talk about the Deep Children, bought the info from the Melnorme, but I still don't get any conversation choices about the Mycon with commander Talana.

Has anyone else run into this with the 0.13 unofficial build? (the one that you can get from this forum) What can I do? I can't fight the endless armada of Mycon at Beta Brahe, and I need that damn Sun Device...

Seems to be my story too...

I've gotten the shell fragment from Syra,

visited a shattered world in the Mycon realm of influence,

let the egg shell be examined by the scientists on earth station ("it's organic!"),

asked the Mycons about shattered worlds ("deep children"),

talked to the Syreens about it (Mycons destroyed Syra),

helped free their ships (need Syreen shuttlecraft),

told the Mycons about a "suitable" world for their "deep children" (Syreen trap),

NOW: When is the best time to go to the Mycon homeworld?!?

Once I only had to fight 5 Mycon ships and got the sun device, but I lost the Zoq-Fot-Pik (no more Frungy... sob!)

When I loaded another game, I had to fight the whole Mycon armada at their homeworld although the Syreens decimated their numbers and talked about a success...

Does anybody else know a hint here?

Well, you've gotten farther than I have. I can't talk to Talana about anything regarding the mycons, the only option i get is 'Goodbye, commander, I shall return'.

Have you visited the Syreen's ship vault? Maybe you need to do that before the Ladies are willing to talk to you about something else?

I just went through that problem yesterday ('cause my walkthrough wasn't specific enough about the order)

Maybe (and hopefully - I'm still stuck... had to back up several months because of the poor Zoq-Fot-Pik - just gotta love'em!), uh...

Ah yes, maybe someone else knows anything that could help us here, please?!?

Kill an Ur-Quan for me, captain ;-)

I'll give that a try, I seriously doubt it'll help, though. On the other hand, ya never know.

Well, visiting the vault did something, namely reset the Syreen so that when I went to Betelgeuse, Talana's opening remarks were from the first time I went there. After that, however, I was back to 'Goodbye, commander'. No dialogue options, no nothing. I'm still stuck.

After visiting a shattered world in the Mycon sphere of influence I could ask the Major-Mycon at their homeworld about shattered worlds and their "deep children"...

I'm not sure whether I visited the Arilou in between or not - although I doubt it since I've only been there once to get my Quasi-Space Ur-Quan Pod refitted...

If anything new comes up, let me know, please.

I'll give it another shot right now, let's see what happens this time...

Good luck to y'all!

Okay,

hopefully you, Unigolyn will come as far eventually...

I discovered my mistake just here and then:

To lure the Mycon fleet away to Organon, one has to go to the Mycon homeworld at Epsilon Scorpii I (629.1:220.Cool,

BUT!

To get the Sun Device one has to go to the shattered world at Beta Brahe I (639.5:231.2)...

If only I could read the instructions properly...

Hope you'll be able to get the sun device eventually!

Good hunting,

You, yourself, don't know the Mycon destroyed Syra just from looking at Egg Fragments.  You need to be told about the Mycon Deep Children by the Arilou or the Melnorme before you can talk to Talana about it, I also think there's a way to get the Mycon to tell you, but I'd doubt it.


I bought the info from the Melnorme, and I've gotten the Mycon to tell me about Deep Children by fighting them several times at Beta Brahe and Gamma Brahe. Guess I'll try the Arilou, but they haven't been talkative lately either.

Woohoo! Problem solved, I had to talk to the Mycons at their homeworld, not on Beta Brahe (the special place). Damn off-the-cuff walkthroughs.

Well then,

hope you enjoy the game as much as I do  n o w  since we're getting there ;-)

Oh, and I could save the Frungy-Championships by visiting their homeworld first, before I set off to get me that Sun-Device!!!

Yehaaaaw! Come and get it, Ur-Quan Scum...

I got a good laugh outta that one  Grin

But to be honest, I really chose the "old" new name for my little adventure - it is a lotta fun though to listen to the replies of the starbase commander when chosing another name...

Actually, when I named the alliance "The New Alliance of Free Stars" I got the impression that he thought I was a little dimwitted.

Maybe, but it's funny when he says the same thing to reply to "The United Federation of Worlds!"
