From: The Briar Patch Nebula
I would love to see a modification to the Shakturi's arrival, to make it a little more mysterious and a little less predictable. Suppose once you trigger the beacon, 3-5 refugee races show up, claiming to be fleeing the great Shakturi menace. All but one of those races is actually telling the truth, and the remaining one is the real Shakturi race, which only reveals itself later. Keep the player guessing for a while!
The game could even plant some hints as to which one is the real Shakturi, which the player could uncover by espionage, exploration, etc.
Sorry, didn't mean to derail this thread.
Very good idea Cauldyth! Please post this in the Master Wishlist!
Shields are useless in "The Briar Patch"...
