The same goes for the supox, utwig and druuge.

Most races lacked depth.
But then, many races already had a background story, which they did not expand upon.

And I really missed the Supox in that game.

Good luck with the game.
Remember to keep multiple save games with some time apart, don't overwrite too much, because bugs sometimes prevent events from triggering and that would make the game unwinnable and halt all progress. In that case you'll need to revert to earlier save-game and try from there. If not - go even earlier...

I've just built another ur-quan colony even though I know the kohr-ah will come from it...simply because I want to see everything the game has to offer.

Is there a time limit in star control 3?

I think so, but it's hard to tell because time passes in such a lumpy way due to the time controls.

As far as I remember, yes and no, but full answer is a heavy spoiler.

At the end-game once you defeat the Ploxis, they detonate a beacon bomb, which causes the EternalOnes to come. Once this event begins, there is time limit til game is lost / measures are taken.
There are also several time-based events that I *THINK* player can miss...
