Dnyarri Slave Empire
« on: July 26, 2011, 09:08:18 pm »

This one may be my most perplexing question yet.



We all know the Ur-Quan were easily controlled by the Dnyarri, but how did the Dnyarri cause the Ur-Quan to separate into two different sub-species? Was it genetic modification, breeding, or something completely different?

Quote from: Greenish
By this point, the Dnyarri had used genetic manipulation to split the Ur-Quan into two sub-species
the Green Ur-Quan -- scientists, technicians, and administrators
who were responsible for maintaining the limited infrastructure of the Dnyarri civilization
and the Black Ur-Quan, who filled the ranks of basic laborer and combat soldier.

Taking a cue from insects, it could be done with chemical imbalance applied to the eggs, much like in ants and bees queens.

I think it would be easier to determine this by seeing what the original race looked like before the split was created.

My guess is it was a matter of recoding the DNA is some shape or form (figure similar technology along the lines of what the Umgah use.) Most likely through a combination of chemical and telepathic manipulation followed by breeding the old race out with the new ones.

Didn't the brown Ur-Quan make a reappearance in SC3?  Depending on how much stock you're willing to put in SC3, of course...

No you just got Ur-Quan and Ur-Quan wearing black paint, You never even got true Kor-ah in that one.
