I think the Chmmr are more likely to be psychotic than brilliant.  Hey... they could put that in the sequal too!  The Chmmr weren't in the oven long enough, and now they are losing their minds and attacking everyone.

I dunno where that psychotic behaviour would come from... neither the Mmrnmhrm nor the Chenjesu showed any sort of hostile personalities.  The Chenjesu were diplomats who seeked to make alliances not war, while the Mmrnmhrm withdrew from contested territories in Spathi space when they wished to claim them as their own.

Even if they do get a little wacko and cook too quickly in the oven, there seems to be no calculable part which would change the Chmmr during the process.  Since they are Chenjesu and Mmrnhmrm, and nothing else, I am led to believe no additional part could change their inherrant natures.

Well, the Chmmr would blow random stuff up and talk to themselves, but they mean well.  They might be too crazy to be controlled by the Dynarri.  They might not be so useful due to paranoia and scratching at bugs under their skin.  That just adds to the challenge of the game.

Just my opinion, but this type of plot twist is unbelievable, unexplainable, and wouldn't be fun to play IMHO...  I'm referring to 'psychotic Chmmr', of course.  If anything were to interest me in a real SC2 sequel, it would be getting to know the real Chmmr, and being able to see the Chenjesu and the Mmrnmhrm sides within them...  it would be neat to see the new role they play in the Alliance, as unofficial leaders as they did before.  They're not the kind of race that would just switch sides or go wacko...  I don't think rushing the process like that would explain your storyline.  I'd rather see the Chmmr be developped as unique and intriguing allies, personally.

Now, the the Zoq Fot Pik as enemies would be intimidating...  Grin  I could see that happening.

we could have the dynarri bring back the zebranky and use them as a motivator to fight harder. Grin

i still think the ultimate conversation would be with a vux that was compulsed to have plastic surgury to look like a human.
he keeps on talking about the knowing the pain humans must have too look soooooo uuuggllyy! Grin (get some super model to play as the vux)

The Chmmr themselves said that the process was incomplete.  Something as complicated as the fusion of two entirely different races (one robotic and one crystalline) has got to be a sensitive process.  Side effects could range from trouble adapting to new anatomy to having 2 or more personalities in the same body.  

You would have to find some way to find some way to seperate them and have them do the process right.  They could pop out in time for SCIV.

I agree with Sudo_Nym. The process was a complicated and delicate one. If something went wrong, we really have no idea what happens, just because they were peaceful to begin ith doesn't mean that a trauma of that magnitude couldn't make them somewhat... erratic.

I must say this is a good idea.. the sequel should NOT be based mainly on the Chmmr, but that could be a good side-story.

Rather make them mysterious and excentric than suicidal / on a killing spree

how about this.. they should always be in a hurry, as if they have found an answer to a question they never shared with us........ sounds familiar? Tongue

Maybe they break down, and get depressed, and we need to give them an ultron.

Then we discover that the Utwig are really crystal-machine hybrids, and the Ultron expands the consciousness of such beings.

Why would a VUX get plastic surgury in order to look like a human unless he liked humans like that per...asthetic General ZEX?  If it was an accident like that episode of the Twilight Zone, then the guy would probably kill himself when he finds out.  Short conversation there.
