Basically, share whatever funny or WTF moment you have gone through in the game.

I will start with myself:

I just spent many hours playing a game with 3 other AI's on a small galaxy. And yet I was confused because even though I had sent exploration ships all over the galaxy I found nobody. Then I turned the game editor on to see what was going on and it turned out that all of the other races still had just their homeworld and nothing else. "The heck???" I thought. Then I realized that the AI were set to start with pre-warp tech and expansion, while I started with a more advanced start, so I had basically messed up the entire game and made hours of effort pointless.

My empire was dominating the galaxy and while I was waiting for victory conditions to apply I sent out some attack fleets on a genocide run to clean up some of those smaller empires on the edge of the map. Just as they had finished refueling after wiping out another civilization the Shakturi spawned in the system right next to it, planning to conquer and enslave the galaxy. Too bad for them that I called dibs on the whole conquer and enslave thing first.

Were the Shakturi able to threaten you in-spite of your power?

Not sure this is that funny, but during one game, a foolish ally of mine with whom I had a mutual protection pact declared war on an insectoid race, which caused me to get sucked in as well. After that happened, several colonies of the insectoid species within my empire declared independence. After an armistice, I left the newly-independent colonies alone, as they weren't a threat and I didn't really need them, and they were still within my sphere of influence. I noticed they were getting ravaged by pirates, so I roleplay-reasoned that factions on the independent planets were petitioning for annexation and welcomed my troops once they landed to suppress the planetside pro-independence forces. Man can I nerd-out with this game. Awesome :)

Hmm... Once upon a time... In age long, long forgotten - people call this ancient time as "Vanilia Distant World" - empires did not had any sphere of influence. In that time I played as Securans, and managed to colonise around one third of galaxy. My empire was kind of isolationistic, so I did not put my nose into other empires, nor did I cared about their affairs. And life was easy and good. But one day... One horrible day something really bad and wrong has happened. Something that changed everything! Hakonish empire had luched massive colonisation effort into MY empire. And they were succesful to the point that I had to put isolationist policy into rubbish bin. And war broke out. I won war at space quite easily, but could not take their colonies (beside those recently colonised that lacked any major defence forces) due to Securans fragile troops. In the end I justwiped out most of their minig stations, space ports and anything that was in space and belonged to them. Than I build in their systems my own mining and gas mining stations. I also managed to take two or three well developed planets of theirs (they were not very big so it was major blow to them). Afther that we sign a peace tready. They started to rebuild, I even sent them around 1000000 credits to help them rebuild faster... And then - guess who earnd milions on selling them literaly every possible resource and fuel? Of course they build their own mining elsewhere, but still - mine was in their systems, so it was to much closer :D But that is not all - there was many more good planets in my empire still uncolonised, so in return they again lunched colonisation fleet, and managed outrun me. Since then we had very, very strange relationships :) On one hand they hated me because of all my mining stations in their systems and I hated them because they managed to colonise most of hi quality continential and swamp planets which I wanted, but on the other side - income generated from mutual trade made me unable to declar war on them. I guess we end up lock in hate-love relation for all ethernity :)
