That's right I think, there was some mention about them towing them through VUX space. But woyuldn't it have taken forever to make any of those trips in TrueSpace? That doesn't make sense, they must have had some HS capability?

IIRC, they were just trying to get SOMEWHERE, and they had been on the move for a long time (before the start of the war). So, they didn't count on having to be under attack...

Also, it could be a classic case of "Let's ignore the vastness of interstellar distances" like they do in The Empire Strikes Back, where Han takes them to Bespin from Hoth -- at sublight speeds. Of course, this would have the positive side-effect of giving Luke plenty of time to train with Yoda, since they'd be on the move for a year or more... On the other hand, I doubt that the Rebels really counted on taking a year to regroup at the rendezvous point.

If you can call it a Hybrid at all.. After all according to science if two creatures can have fertile offspring then they're of the same species.

Repost from the "This has been bugging me for YEARS !" thread:
I never thought about this, I always assumed that the grandchildren were Talana's genetic grandchildren, but that doesn't have to be true;  Talana and the Captain may have adopted children, or maybe they adopted some Androsynth (found after SC2), and these Androsynth adopted some human children.  Anyone know if there is dialog regarding genetic compatabilities between Syreen and human (beyond mere physical compatabilities that we know already exist)?

Yes there is. I'm pretty sure Talana mention it.
But the PonF are down at the moment, so I can't quote the text.

on a mature side.
|- the reason the arilou favor us is that our genitic code is closer to theirs then the syreens. they could be genitcaly altering us to be guinie pigs for drug testing or something like that.
|- could be that they acidently alterd us and are trying to correct this mistake.
|- maybe they are changing us to be a "super speicies" that when finish will be wise inteligent and still inicent and near indestuctible oh wait that is what the chmmr are.
|- its a fad that has yet to pass
|- we are their version of a ant farm
|- we are the first intelgent speicies they met so they been messing with us first.
|- my before mentioned theory.

Well, that's the best I could find, from Talana's conversation logs:

"Our bodies are very similar, Captain. Ha! ha! Except for... certain parts...I mean
What I am trying to say is that our SPECIES are almost identical
almost too close a match to be just a coincidence."

"Earth is the only world we know of whose variety and richness of life even comes close to Syra.
Again, like so many other things about our two species, our worlds were very much the same
at least before you began encasing yours in concrete and plastic."

And one regarding Syreen tech:
"For the next seventy five years, our people wandered at sub-light speed through the stars
looking for a new home."


BTW BioSlayer, what makes you think the Arilou are genetically similar to Humans? There are tones of Humanoid races out there, and the Arilou don't look that much like us.

BioSlayer has an SC3 icon, I'd say that probably shows why he thinks the Arilou are genetically similar to Earthlings. In SC3, the Arilou reveal that they care about Earthlings 'cause they need our DNA to fix their own which is deteriorating somehow.

the arilou like humans
because i guess the humans in there dimension long ago
before the arilou had space travel the human helped them
and because of that the arilou help othe humans in othe
dimensions
that will make a good story
as for why they did not like the syreen i will think of it later

Arilou said something about changing our *smell* to hide us from THE ULTIMATE EVIL FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION (not exactly the quote but I'm to lazy to look for it).
My theory is that the Arilou are trying to make us completely invisible to the Orz and then they'll use us as an inter-dimensional version of Sa-Matra in the Orz-Arilou war.

Why wont they also use Syreen? Well, Arilou said that ignorance is our best armour, and as everyone knows humanity has more then enough ignorance in stock. Unlike the Syreen wich are intelligent and reasonable.

*tries to say this in the most diplomatic way possible*

Erm... captainkirk person...
Your posts read like they were written by an 8 year old (I was going to say 10 year old but even the Orz make more sense).

Could you please try to use proper capitalization and punctuation and spelling in your writing?

And if you're going to state an idea... could you use complete or at least *semi-complete* sentences?

I mean, even a broken up sentence like, "I think it was the Arilou. They do that kind of thing. Kidnap earthlings."
Is a million times more readable than...

And I just want to make sure you also know I am not in any way telling you what actual material or subject matter you choose to post or not to post. (and believe me I have some criticism on that matter as well)

And the Primat is back, with full force!

Back to the topic, maybe it's just a question of convenience? After all, one of the Arilou holes in QS open close to earth. The syreen were on the move for a while, and before that, they were in a region that (and this may be rememebring completely incorrectly on my side) wasn't as close, and maybe not as isolated as the humans?

As demonstrated by the Skiff special ability, the Arilou can get to QS and back when and where they want.
