This article seems strangely...familiar... ;-)

Are you interested in using the image of the Oresrian cruiser I was working on a while ago. Also, when I finish the sketch of the Thargoid shall I do an Oresrian variant too? --Selezen 17:40, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

yes I thought it was appropriate that there would be a ..near identical ring to the apearances there ;)
please do continue the parallell work, I'm interested to see your interpretation. DW leaves a lot of possibilities open ;)
and that O. cruiser was definitely on to something. have you come further along with it? --Murgh 18:20, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

No, not really made any progress with it, what with the manual and the other stuff. I'll get back on it though... I'm doing more gfx stuff these days than anything else, so shouldn't be a problem. --Selezen 00:54, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I hope it's near the top of your list. the Oresrian presence should be elaborated on and find it's way into Oolite. the only reason it wasn't in og.Elite, far as I reckon, is down to the tiny available memory of the day.. --Murgh 09:01, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I'll bump it up the priorities just for you, Murgh. I'll finish off the design for the standard cruiser and do another couple of ships just for variety. As soon as I've drawn this week's comic... --Selezen 10:38, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
cool. if there's room for me, maybe I'll join in when I get a good idea of where you're going ;) --Murgh 11:13, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Heehee, same thought here. Maybe you could slightly rejiggle it, so to make it sound like the scientist are in fact at a loss, and barely got away with merely plagiarising older research (an endnote or something from 'Interstellar Nature' or 'New New Science' mags or so... Hm. Come to think of it, who would copy who? The scientists that examine Thargoids or the ones that examine Oresrians? What would be the most plausible scenario: science getting access to Tharg. bodies (from destroyed Warships, via military) or granted access to dead Oresrians... I'd argue Thargs being slightly easier to get your hands on, the Military undoubtedly being eager to fund research in what makes them tick (and stop ticking! ;) ) Oresrians OTOH, being 'barely' on friendly terms w/ humans, but they'd probably won't want to give bodies to those weak-fleshed, smelly mammals for hacking 'em up, science or not. OTOH, them being insectoids, hive-minded, an induvidual body might not have much 'reverence' for their dead, like some bee-species do when summer ends: they just throw out their workers, still alive, and they die outside the hive, because they can't feed themselves... In such a case the Oresrian homewords would be piled w/ bodies for easy investigation (If humans are allowed to land there; if there are no dangerous scavengers (would be very probable, such a readily available foodsource... ) Or maybe they just throw the old'uns out of the airlocks etc. etc.--Rxke 21:19, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

sure I could change it. I just thought it would be funnier if the description was identical.
I think you're right, they would just drop off dead individuals--Murgh 23:11, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Leave it identical, I say. It gives it a tongue in cheeck feel! --Selezen 00:54, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
