* Remember that the Orz referred to *playing* with the Taalo in *Pretty Space*? Given [[{{EldritchAbomination}} the nature of the Orz]] *Pretty Space* very well could have been a dimension that was some kind of FireAndBrimstoneHell RecycledInSpace (think the hell-dimension in the movie ''Film/EventHorizon'' and you have the idea). Somehow, maybe the Taalo would return ''[[UpToEleven even more traumatised than the Ur-Quan]]'' for that, changed from (likely) peaceful-looking rockmen into jagged demon-like things similar to the Pyroviles from that Pompeii episode of Series/DoctorWho, except with some weird, dark, likely sickly green Hellfire type energy liked to PrettySpace animating them, and looking very much in their shape like demons due to both their forced adaptation to *Pretty Space* and its hazards such as the Orz and others? Most likely agenda would be to pull a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum first by escaping back to TrueSpace and then pulling at least a Class X-3 if not a Class X-4 or even trying for a Class Z on the ApocalypseHow scale, due to having basically had to avoid extinction by in a sense fleeing down to hell. Even if the Orz later abandoned the New Alliance, the Taalo would find out, and then decide on a FateWorseThanDeath for humanity for the Captain having blindly thrown his lot in with the Orz. Oh, and did I mention the Taalo would have abandoned their pacifism in order to survive and they've got weapons all the way from simple tools of destruction (energy weapons etc) to weaponised BrownNote things like that tentacle effect the Suul'ka from SwordOfTheStars used at the nastiest. Even if not, feel free to run with the idea if you like. Still, if that were the case, talk about NiceJobBreakingItHero...

[[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.

[[WMG: The JakAndDaxter trilogy is set in the same universe as StarControl]]

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.
