Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters

Made by Accolade, released in 1992

The Supox



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2006! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




Those little green things are Supox Blades. Supox Blades have a forward firing shot that has a fairly fast rate of fire and good range. It doesn't do a great deal of damage, but it can do a pretty good amount due to how fast it can fire. The fun part about the Supox is their secondary ability. It's kind of hard to explain. Their secondary ability lets you float in weird directions. Like...you hold down the key, then press a direction and your Supox ship flies off in some weird direction. Press forward, you go backwards. You can go straight sideways, diagonal, backwards with this. It's lots of fun to play with because it's not as jerky and disorienting as the Drone's teleporting ability, and sometimes it can totally screw up your opponent. It takes some practice to get used to tho.

There we go, the Supox! A race of sentient plant creatures. I've seen some people be pretty harsh on them and say their only purpose was to give you the broken Ultron, which I GUESS is strictly true but I think they're a fun race anyway! They have some thought to them and I like their ships and their music, I like them. Their music is really upbeat, happy stuff.

Original MOD
Mp3, matches pretty close
Shake Yer Rootz is the UQM remix which has a nice synthy reverb sound and a fun guitar

Animated!

Hee hee. That name. Try saying it out loud.

Vlik is also a fun word to say.

I swear, the Captain really sounds like he's faking interest most of the time.

Thus the copying thing.

Hee hee hee hee.

What, weeping and sighing?

Heh, a little.

I can't picture that at all.

AND YOU ARE CORRECT AS WELL

I have trouble believing they weren't BEFORE they got the Ultron, but okay.

Someone needs to call a suicide hotline!

Hahaha, and fix it I will.

Hee hee hee hee hee.

HINT HINT

I actually already have one of the pieces I need. Do you know what it is?

Alright, Druuge it is!

Anyway, that's pretty much it for them. Let's go!

Oh woah I have like no fuel. Woops. I better get back to Starbase pronto.

Oh boy!

Haha, that was quick.

Crew was 3, but now it is 1! There are various factors that will change how much crew costs. More on this when we meet the Druuge.

I wonder what AIQR stands for.

HMM.

Hahaha what are the other possible domains for it to go into? Outgoing Friendly? Hmm.

Hee hee.

IF YOU SAY SO

Ooo, just wait till I fix it! You'll see then, boy howdy.

Frigging Drones. When the heck am I going to use a Drone.

Actually, now that I have a Shofixti Scout, I'm gonna hit the Yehat next. WOO.

Let's see if there are any Supox quotes I missed...

Hello, Voyager. May the light always reach your leaves.

Welcome. May you always stand in the Great Green Sunlight.

Greetings Gentle-being. Come fix nitrogen, drink deeply
and bask in the warm green sunlight.

So it is you, the blockers of the warm green sunlight
the water poisoners
the heinous uprooters of flowering shrubbery.
Begone before our wrath overcomes our peaceful nature.

You diandrous, malefic vegetarians!
Your visage darkens our skies.
May your rotting bodies provide nutrients for kinder generations.
We ignore you, as we ignore the pale, tasteless light of your wan home star.

Hail, Fellow and Well Met. We trust that your seed distributes widely.

Be Welcome, Friendly Allies. We hope that the Good, Green Sunlight warms you.

Greetings and Salutations. May the fertilizer flow on your roots.

Hello there, Good Folk. May your flowers always be pollinated.

Captain: Why thanks. You know you remind me of Broccoli, and I'm rather partial to Broccoli with a light cheese sauce.
Supox: Arrgh, you hideous monsters, vegetarians, defilers of the leaf!
Begone, or we shall uproot you!

There are actually more, but we'll probably run into them later.

Next up, the Yehat!
