I quite possibly imagine it drove every single last one of them completely insane, and utterly altered their mindset towards other species (as they state) and changed their society's outlook completely. Even newborn Kohr-Ah would be indoctrinated into the 'hate-other-races-from-birth' outlook.

...and I still retain my inner belief that FRIED is a psionic blast that is triggered by a strong current fed directly into the Kohr-Ah's pain center.

That's why I never leave the house and wear tinfoil on my head. It keeps them all out.


Lies! Propaganda! THEY are using the tinfoil hats to get to you! Why do you think it's at a point, hmm? Why is it made out of conductive metal, eh? BECAUSE IT IS AN ANTENNA!! THEY know people will try to put on metal hats and that's when THEY will get them! You have bought into THEIR propaganda machine!

Somebody has been watching "Fletcher's Vision" one time too often, huh?
They do not exist.
Let me assure you that they are just an imagination.
They cannot look into your head, even if you put a copper cable right into your brain stem...
And they will not use Excruciators on you, unless they think you are an Ur-Quan possessed by a Dynarri...

(And stop posting the truth here, or somebody might get into trouble with them - not saying that they really exist!)

Being a bit of a masochist IRL, I wonder what the long term effects of having an Excruciator (with a significantly reduced power output) would be.

Itching.

Lots and lots of itching.

I think the lasting effects would be devestating.  A child exposed to the effects of the excruciator might result to violence and crime because of his brutal upbrining.  It would scar someone for life...

Well not only the child, but the society in general.
With the only role models being creatures totally insane from years and years of constant pain, I imagine a lot of their sociological behavior would permanently be altered to reflect that impact that the Dnyarri war had on their forefathers.

Well, that was what I was basically saying before, anyway.

Well, that and constant appearances on Jerry Springer...

*nods* You can trace back all alien races' antisocial tendencies back to child abuse.

Quote
We welcome you to our space, perversely misguided spirits of hostile intent that you are.
Perhaps it is simply that your species does not comprehend such subtle concepts
as the unification of the inner self child with the universal love stream.
So sad.
Perhaps if we put it in terms you could understand
Killing bad, bad.
Is that better?

My telepathic sensors are telling me that you are repressing something.
Repress, repress, repress. What is it? Come on. What is it? I see a smile.
You're smiling. Tell Pkunky the secret. Come on, nasty alien gonna tell Birdy Pkunky big secret?

I sense that you are cautious.
You feel that you are not yet ready to enter into the fullness of our compassion.
I say to you, Let go!!
Travel to our planet of love at the star you call Gamma Krueger
and share the brightness of your soul with us.
Unburden yourself of fears, become as a child once again
release yourself to tears of joy!
Go. Go now, young one. Go quickly!

See? All you need are the Pkunk to end all alien wars!

Imagine the Pkunk trying to negotiate peace with the Kohr-Ah...  "We come in peace.  Let us be one.  Together we can live in peace as harmonic brothers in the galactic family."

Kohr-Ah: "You must die now."
*BOOM*

No more Pkunk...   Cry  This sort of reaction to peace and love is obvious proof as to the excruciators' true effects.  Like a traumatic moment from childhood, I'm sure the Kohr-Ah are haunted by their enslaved past just as the Ur-Quan are.  Who wouldn't be afraid of psychic brain-frogs?

Oh, I have faith that the Pkunk would survive their reunification---er, annihilation with the Kohr-Ah.

...actually, I don't. The Kohr-Ah are pretty thorough.

Damn psychic brain frogs. Actually, to be honest, I'd feel quite violated after being brain-raped for thousands of years and years. Destroying every living thing that had even the remotest -possibility- of reducing me to such a -humiliating- state ever again?

You'd be damn right I'd be all for it.

(The Syreen...would be first on my list.)

What's wrong with the Syreen?  What did they ever do to you?  They can't help it that they're blue, beautiful and have perfectly-sculpted bodies!  We can't hold it against them that they're creatures of perfection!

It's what makes them my favourite, after all.   Cool

Ignoring the SC3 Syreen, yes, I'd have to say Talana (the only other visible example of a Syreen we have) is quite a physically beautiful being.

That having been said, that whole psychic-enslavement technology of theirs puts them first on the kill-list.

The Melnorme would probably be second--after all, any race who managed to get away from our killing grasp is going to be especially careful in keeping themselves safe from us long enough to develop mind-control technology.

This -cannot- be tolerated. The filth -must- be cleansed.

Are you sure you haven't used an excrutiator before?  I think you too have been warped by the pain and suffering it causes!  Your mind is warped... don't go into the light!

I'd say your choices of races to slaughter is good, but I'd beware those sneaky Utwig...  with all their bombs and precursor devices, they have tricks up their wrinkled sleeves.
