Do you mean their copyright covers even the very concept of a large cubic ship? :roll:
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

Well, if they use pyramids, then clearly they couldn't be inspired by cubes! :)
Plus, I think you'll find that Torgs and Sorgs are quite wrong! Worgs is clearly much better! :D

'We are the Bawg. Counteraction is fruitless."

I like the idea of this. The thargs could use a little competition.

You can distribute it as long as you make no profit from it. Otherwise there would be no star trek mods for games and no trek fanfic.

We already have an enterprise somewhere...

Interesting... this OXP could go somewhere. I'm thinking about totally replacing the 'Goids, currently the two coexist happily. Not exactly Borg or Thargoid conduct. Maybe the bugs got assimilated? :twisted:

Remember, this is oolite. They are called the "BOorg!". "We will educate your hi-tech toasters!". Imagine pitched battles with the BOorg vs. Thargoids slinging bad english at each other. Make some popcorn and watch the fun. :)

"We are the Boorg. You will be assoomilated. We will add your technological and sociological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is fOotile."

"Eat monkey soup, turgid poet!"

"Ah, crap, it's species 841! Quick! Run away!"

If only Riker had realised that bad English was the way to defeat the Borg, then Wolf 359 would never have happened.

OT: does anyone else think that the real (undocumented) reason that the ST universe went slowly downhill into war and backstabbing is that everyone was suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome?

Don't forget OoCheat's limited invulnerability so you don't die in the process. :D

I've been messing about with some terraforming recently, and this is my Waterworld.

Ooh, pretty. :)

How much money to terraform Cesousla? I'm hoping to get back to G5 after the Constrictor and Nova missions, so I can do Xeptatl's Sword.

@Selezen yes.

@Smivs Nice! :D Can you make all the planets look that good? If so, that's your calling. Carpe Diem and viva oolite, etc. 8)

Ha, they must be somewhere as the 'Aquatic space-faring races' are the main users of the Moray StarBoat according to the Wiki :wink:

Edit:- I suppose the Lobstoids are 'Aquatic space-faring races' aren't they, maybe it's them. Perhaps there are fish but they fall into the same catagory as the Cows and Dogs - food! :twisted:
