Hello.


This game is really awesome, and even though I didn´t finish it yet, (last time I played I got the Chenjesu to modify the vessel but didnt win that last fight) I´d like to know about similar games that are just as good (or at least tries to) and sci-fi books which goes along the same lines.

By the way, is there any official explanation of the true nature of the Orz ? Is there any race in some sci-fi book which resembles the creepy nature of these creatures?

Thanks.

Masters of Orion is kind of a similar game. I don't think there was ever an official explanation of the Orz, although there's tons of discussion about them here.

Starflight is something StarControl is based on, I didn't enjoy it as much though. There is a remake in progress, called Starflight: The Lost Colony, you can Google for it.

Thanks.

I searched the cafe and there are a few threads that talk about this. I think it´s worth a read.

I remember it being strongly implied, if not outright stated, that the Orz are some kind of extra-dimensional creatures who were drawn to our dimension by the experiments the Androsynth were conducting.  Beyond that and their somewhat shady-seeming intentions, there isn't much in the way of official information.
