** The game also allows you to impersonate their gods, and while there is a serious use for this ability, it also allows you to mess around with them, like making them rename their species the "Dill-rats" or replace the word "you" with "yuubuu". The resulting quotes are a laugh riot.

** When you confront him with the Taalo shield and defeat the death squad of Umgah he sends after you, he weaves a hilariously fake story about how the fight somehow knocked the evil out of him and conveniently removed his psychic powers, which he claims he didn't even want, so there's no need to pursue him or even keep the mental shield up. The Captain doesn't even bother to say anything, but just glares at him.

--->'''Safe One''': Yes, your vessel is unique, and here is the crux of the problem. A 'unique', meaning 'singular', starship is equal to the task of destroying the entire Ur-Quan armada. If you had, say, ten thousand similar ships, we could take your boasts more seriously.

--->'''Captain''': Yes - I - want - to - talk - about - flowers.
--->'''Dnyarri''': Yes, flowers are nice, and smell very good. Now, '''''Leave me alone!'''''

--->'''Captain''': Come on. You can see my ship, right? Is it not uniquely powerful?
--->'''Safe One''': Yes, indeed. And therein lies the problem: your ship is "unique", ie, "singular", and thus not an effective weapon against an entire armada of Ur-Quan Dreadnoughts.
--->'''Captain''': What do I have to do to prove our strength? Destroy your entire planetary defense fleet!?
--->'''Safe One''': Well... yes, that would probably do it, but I have a better idea...
