[[WMG: The Syreen have been modified by the Arilou, to aid Humanity's survival.]]
The Arilou are very interested with Humanity. The Arilou have had a long relationship with the Umgah-master bio-engineers. If I wanted to preserve a species that might be annihilated, I would make sure that there was something else it could breed with, just in case.

I don't believe that the Syreen's normal growth or history was messed with. I just think that their biology may have been modified at some point so they [i]could[/i] breed true with humanity, if needed. Grab a few Humans, a few Syreen, take them somewhere nice and safe, and let the games begin.

The problem with the above is that many works of science fiction refer to an ancient ancestral race as "The Precursors" (which literally means something/someone who came before) not just JakAndDaxter and StarControl.

* Another way to read the "Enemy of your enemy is your friend... at least for a time" line is that it's a warning about the Orz, who the Arilou are very concerned about the players' alliance with.

**** Their culture rejects giving things away for free. It does not reject self-defense. Sooner or later the Ur-Quan, either the Kzer-Za or the Kohr-Ah, are coming for them. If they had a weapon that could stop them, they would have every reason to use it.

* I always thought they were like the Arilou or Orz - things that don't exist the same way we do and [[EldritchAbomination we can't get our heads around]], but [[DidYouJustHaveTeaWithCthulu aren't immediately hostile]].

*** Also, the probes are not necessarily programmed to try and convert ''everything'' to raw materials (that would be insane). The only reason they try to convert ships to resources is because a bug in their programming causes them to select ships as communication targets and then switch to mining mode. Normally, they just target asteroids; they have no reason to attempt suicide-rushes against planets.

*** They would run out of material before that happened.

*** I was always under the impression that *many bubbles* meant something along the lines of individual minds or souls which if Orz are all part of the same being(which most indications indicate this is so) then they do not have the concept of individual minds and thus they do not have a word for it, hence *many bubbles*. Also I thought *campers* referred to the fact that, from their inter-dimensional perceptive, most True Space beings don't really go anywhere and thus are camping out. Also I do not think *dancing* means just combat, as the computer could translate that. I think it is a more encompassing concept of maneuvering, fighting, dying, living and probably more interdimensional stuff we have no words for(I always make note that they say *IT IS DANCING* not Orz or *campers*, it without any real indication of what it meant). That is the thing about having things humans writing about things humans have not experienced or even hypothesized is that it makes it hard for humans to discuss...
