EVERYONE has little beards. Except Talana. Her beard reaches the floor.

okay, that gave me the sickest and most perverse mental image ever... I'm not going to repeat it on here you can use your imagination on what that made me think of *compulsively bathes*

- There would only be 1 slylandro probe, and it would be out to destroy all sentient life out there, however a glitch in its system would repair any ships it would find. The Slylandro gasbags would have spread out to every corner of the galaxy, procreating widly and contaminating each planet, EXCEPT gas giants, where they are unable to live.

- The ZFP are out for galactic domination as well, spreading death and destruction through the known galaxy.

- It has been reported that the Druuge were the first race in the known universe to abolish slavery.

(The Umgah still have no sense of humour  by the way)

and maybe the ZFP keep Zebranky as slaves. Of course, as powerful as the Precursors were, if they were evil instead of benevolent, they probably would have annihilated all life they came into contact with. They had the technology to do so.

Perhaps they (almost) did, making the galaxy a desolate wasteland for eons after blowing themselves up as well, until the remnants finally evolved into something intelligent again.

The Supox would be carnivorous, becoming space pirates who prey on other races for food, mainly the Utwig. They would be in constant quarrel with another race of space pirates, the Spathi, who do the occasional exploring as well, seeking out new life and new civilizations, to annihilate them and expanding their influence ever further.

-The Terran Overlord Cruiser would be extremely fast and has the best acceleration in the game, but couldn't turn to save it's skin.  It has a moderatly powerful weapon with moderate seeking properties, and very short range.

-The Orz would have a Orz Call, by which they attract other crewmembers into their ship.

-The Syreen would have Space Marines, which board other vessels and kill them.  The ship would look suspiciously like a pair of breasts or a *cough*, and be crewed entirely by men in parkas.

-The Kor-Ah Spinner is a ship that flings itself at the enemey by anchoring itself to a part of space using a giant metal disk;  The disk is dropped, and using magnetics it then uses the disk as a pivot by which the ship is launched at the target.

-Collisions with asteroids and other ships cause damage, but crashing into planets does not, due to advanced orbital navigation systems.

-The Ur-Quan Scout is a small, extremely fast and manueverable ship armed with a short range, underpowered gun.  It's secondary system launches a pair of point defence drones which follow the Scout and shoot down any incoming munitions.

-The VUX Defender is a sprightly and maneauverable vessel armed with a pair of weak homing missles with good tracking qualities.  It's secondary system is an afterburner, significantly increasing its agility.

-The Thraddash Firefighter is a slow and porky vessel armed with a devastatingly powerful, short range gun, and has the ablity to drop limpets.

- The Umgah Queen is a sleek and clever combination of speed, manuverablity, and firepower.  Easily the most powerful ship in the game.
