Free Stars... Children of Infinity?

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Free Stars... Children of Infinity?

Post by Frumple »

The sequel to Famous Battles of the Ur-Quan Conflict Volume IV and The Ur-Quan Masters has an official name...

:!: Free Stars: Children of Infinity :!:

First, it seems like an amazing way to reference the first two games as the protagonists in those games were the Alliance of Free Stars and the New Alliance of Free Stars. Suffice to say, I'm glad it's not The Ur-Quan Masters 2 or something to that effect.

Second, who or what is Infinity? A place to go or visit? Powerful precursory beings that call themselves that? Related to time and stories? Dan G. referred to all 3 of these games as containing a multiverse in the Free Stars name announcement blog post!

Hmm...

hmm...

hmm...hmm...hmm.

Please, read further about more recent happenings...
Your insight into the ineffable Juffo-Wup is encouraging.

Perhaps, if we were to plant spore sacs in your brain organ

and let its tendrils spread through your flesh

then you would truly understand Juffo-Wup... become part of Juffo-Wup.

You WOULD be happier and more fulfilled. Consider our offer.

I swear I almost named this post's title,
    "Would the real Star Control 3 please stand up?"

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    A whole kindergarten of Lk, Exquivan, XChagger, Humans, Ortogs, Vux,.... would stand up and consider themselves the real successors of the Precursors...
