quick question about umgah.
« on: March 24, 2003, 01:01:04 am »

allright, after you leave their world by using the escape device for the last time, (when u recieve 4 of their ships) what happens when you go back?

Do they just attack you on sight or what?

I'm not entirely sure if these two bits of dialogue are from the Umgah patrol groups or their homeworld, but they're a good read in any case, and I'm positive that they're after you take the Dnyarri.

Well pop my pupae! It human Earthling again!
It just doesn't learn, does it? To Arms! To Arms!... wait a minute! Don't HAVE any arms!
AIEE!! MY ARMS!! WHO HAS STOLEN MY ARMS!!! AIEEE!! ARM THIEF!!!
Har! Har! Har!... Never HAD any arms! Har! Har! Har!

Look, we all decided that our treating you this way and by that mean, attacking you without mercy all time well, we decided that it just plain unfair.
REALLY, after all things you've done for our people!
So we decided to make you our honorary KING! Congratulations!
Braankk!!
What that sound, officer Flubbo? It was? You sure? King-Killing Horn?
Har! Har! Har! What a sad coincidence, eh, Captain King?

The Umgah give you there ships for freeing them from the Dnyarri...  then they immediately attack you, saying it will be "fun" to play that "game".  After that, they will just attack you, although they still call you the human savior, funny enough.

You gotta love those little guys. there may not be a way to get them on your side, they attack you with malicious intent, but at least they smile while doing so.

The Umgah are the party animals of the galaxy.  I love their constant justifications for battle.  They openly admit that it would be a joke just to attack you, so they do it.  Their sense of humour is never-ending.   Smiley  It proceeds into war and combat (serious subjects), turning such things into farce.

I hope they have a psychically mediated collective consciousness, or else I can't see why those captains would fail to foresee the fatal consequences of their actions. Joking is one thing; killing yourself for the funny aspect of being shot at for a few seconds is quite another.

What's funnier about their intent to use the Pet to order the Spathi to attack the VUX? The idea of ordering the cowardly race to attack the relatively vicious race or the idea of said cowardly race slaughtering said vicious race by the millions with negligible casualties.

I think he was referring to the Spathi slave shield/battle thrall selection incident, anyway.

I like the noise the Umgah ship makes when it scoots backward

I doubt the Spathi would be able to exterminate the VUX. If you're pretty good at melee, you can beat a Spathi Eluder with an Intruder. Plus, Admiral ZEX (assuming he's still alive) would think up a brilliant strategy similar to an Umgah prank that involves scaring the Spathi so badly that the entire Spathi race packs their bags and flys away from the quadrant because they won't fight the VUX and sure as hell don't wanna stick around after disobeying the Ur-Quan.

The all-time greatest Umgah prank has to be the switching of the two rods, which led to them picking to be battle thralls instead of slave-shielded.  It was so funny to hear the explanation for the whole thing, because its obviously a challenge to determine why a cowardly race would want to patrol space in hopes of blowing up enemy ships.  They did a good job explaining it, hehe.

Second-best Umgah prank is the whole Ilwrath-Pkunk thing.  Those poor birds...   Sad

I don't think the Umgah need to have a psychically mediated collective consciousness, in order to appreciate the joke of getting blown up. I mean, we don't know what they might be saying aboard their ships just before they blow up. Maybe they believe that anyone who dies through joke participation goes straight to prankster heaven? They might simply not value the physical exitence as much as we do. Or they might have soem sort of backup for their conciousness at homeworld, they are masterrs of biotechnology after all...
