id like to see the shofixi defending there homeworld in a great battle and then detonationg there sun in a super nova. then the out going shockwave takes out the ur-quan in a very dramatic sequence... im telling you that would be the best commercial preview to bring in the people. what do you think?
there is a short story i wrote a long time ago when i first found "ponaf".
[/glow]


I like your idea. However, I've always viewed anything surrounding the Shofixti, expecally thier suicidal nature, as more comical than dramatic. If I were to do it, it'd be something like this: [insert dreamy transitional music.]

A lone Ur-Quan vessel drops into real space go to the bridge and he's reading a map, trying to make sense of it. He throws it to the side and asks helm for a bearing reading.
Suddenly 20 shofixti ships charge him.
Ur-Quan, "Never mind. Battle Stations."
The attacking shofixti report that a "Ur-Quan battle fleet" has attacked and they are engaging.a "Death and Glory!" is followed by hysterical laugher and "kieees!" all around.
A junor officer arives at the command bridge where the shofixti high commander is chatting with 6 or 7 shofixti females around him and relays the report of the attacking Ur-Quan "fleet."
Return to a shot of the Ur-Quan getting rocked as suicide bomber detonate all around him.
The commander rises and asks "Where are the Yehat."
"No where to be found, sir!"
"Finally," He sighs. "Arm the 'Final-Glory-Device'!"
"Sir, that will destroy every shofixti..."
"Death and Glory for everyone!"
"...except (what's his name in SC2)"
"Oh. Death and Glory for everyone but him!"
"Very good sir."
A rather large bomb is launched from the shofixti station and travels to the sun.
"Final-Glory-Device launched, sir."
A view of the Ur-Quan's bridge reveals that his crew count is down to minimal and he begins a retreat.
"Sir, the Ur-Quan fleet is getting away."
"No they're not. Look!"
The bomb hits the sun with a splash. A moment later the sun throbs. A moment after that a shockwave travels out decimating the inner planets.
At the star base, the captian is looking stary eyed at the oncoming destruction, a shofixti maden on each arm. "Isn't it beautiful?" The madens sigh peacefully.
Then the base and fleets of shofixti ships are overtaken.
A shofixti scout drops into real space and sees the oncomming wave of destruction. He does a take, then yells, "Wait for me!"
Flying as fast as he can at the Ur-Quan vessel and the shockwave, he's yelling "Deathandglory, Deathandglory!"
The Ur-Quan is overtaken and ripped to pieces like so much tissue paper.
Then the edge of the shockwave hits the charging scout, knocking his vessle a bit and crippling his glory device. (Is that accurate?) With a "Kieeee!" he hits the switch expecting to die, and nothing happens.
Alone he sits in space, unable to destruct, and cries a mournful "Nooooooooo!"
Fade to black.

Except for the fact that a third of the Quan fleet were destroyed there, and not just one, it's a great story.

I have to agree, I've alwys seen the Shofixti as more of a furry side-gag than anything else. I mean ,after talking to Tanaka, you can't help but laugh...

Spathi?  What spathi?  You're imagining, hunam.

Capt: "Why didn't you use your glory device against us?"
Tanaka: "The switch broke."

But you know, the whole scenario would probably work better from a yehat perspective - quite possibly put in when you ask the yehat about the shofixti.  Waiting to stand side by side against kzer-za at Gorno, then the order comes in......the withdraw from a distance, watching the battle from a distance, seeing the little scouts blow themselves us....then bang.

I'd really like to see an animation of the final battles between the chenjesu/mrmnhrmn and the sa-matra.  preferable with the sa-matra so far away it's just a dot, and just seeing the weapons vaporizing broodhomes and x-forms.

It would be amusing to see, perhaps as a bonus, an evil one actually eating a spathi.  Preferably after a rather comical chase.  Even more preferably, with several other spathi running away and refusing to lift a finger to help.

I second the animation of the Chenjisu/Mrrmhrrm encounter with the Sa-Matra. A huge fleet of Alliance ships, holding the line... when along comes this dot on the hyperspace radar. A massive Ur-Quan invasion force...? NO! It's only a single ship and a dozen Ur-Quan support vessels! And then the carnage begins.

I'm surprised no one has suggested a short 'Adventures of the Black Spathi Squadron'. I see it as a sort of Battlestar Galactica/Buck Rodgers teaser short. But with Spathi.

from a game stand point, humor took the edge off of scan, land, pick up, repeat. from a movie stand point, there would be humor, ie tanaka, but as a whole, the shofixi race i see as fearless warriors. the movie would have a much more serious overtones. makeing a game into a movie or even animation, there would be finer points left out, while others added in to make the story flow. id love to work on a screen play or script for sc movie. but to the point, id like the movie to be more serious in nature. ages umm...13+. that way i could appeal to a wider audiance. after all, if it doesnt go boom, or someone doesn't get shot, or its rated G, it never gets watched. the people want action, sex and violence, its whats wrong with america, but if peace sells, whos buying? i guess ill go with the flow, make it action, sex and violence. watch it sell... ~DEFIANT

Especially since it is mostly action and violence, with a small dash of sex...  Wink

Orz!
« Reply #24 on: May 05, 2003, 07:26:53 pm »

The Orz!

I mean, these guys are terrifying...

I'd love to have a movie where you see an Orz ship blasting away at an enemy craft... maybe a superheated Mycon ship, or a VUX Intruder, or perhaps even an Ur-Quan Marauder or Dreadnaught...

Then you see inside the launch-bay of the Orz ship, where a large team of massive space-suit wearing Orz marines are standing.  And with cries of "GO! GO!" they leap from the back, trails of ionized gases behind them as they roar towards the enemy ship, dodging fire from both craft before slamming onto the hull...

Then you get an interior shot as the Orz blast a hole into the hull and storm in, weilding sizzling weapons and having masses of gunfire simply bounce off their armour.  They storm through the ship, slaughtering alien troops left and right, eventually breaking through the secure bulkhead into the cockpit... taking out the captain's bodyguard... then the captain himself...

Lastly, they walk up to the control panel, input something... then blast out of the ship, which explodes into a huge fireball just behind them.

Now... just try and tell me that wouldn't be cool??

Damn there are some ideas that I hadn't even thought of!

Just a point, I'm an amatuer and I've only recently started figuring out character modelling and animation so some things right now I'm having a hard time figuring out, like the shofixti.  I have NO idea how I'm gonna do all that fur!

But seeing the Shofixti blow up their sun I'd probably do a bit more serious.  I just don't see massive suicide as being particularly goofy, even if it is the Shofixti. Tongue

How about the Thraddash attacking the Kohr-ah to 'show off' their new ships? that would be insta-carnage...

Ilwrath vs pkunk: a group of 3 pkunk fury's fly towards a planet (reason?Huh) then out of the black darkness an Ilwrath avenger uncloaks, too close, and burns the little blue ships. then cloaks...

how about things like this a-la-masse??

the precursor factory roaring to life, and putting together the service vehicle. all the while, the tiny humans, carry on there lives underneth the massive ship. pans to maybe the "captain", up on a hill, over looking the valley where the ship is being built, just at twilight. ~DEFIANT
