This game is awesome! The graphics are basically the same
for the melee part of the game but the sound effects are
incredible, and the music soundtrack is the best I've heard
of in a game yet (of course you need a Soundblaster to enjoy
this part of the game!). I wasn't even going to write a solve
for it until I played it once and got hooked (and it took
two days to solve). Other than that, this game was pretty
tough to solve since I suddenly found out that there is a time
limit and had to reload one of the earlier saved games to finish
it quicker. This solve is an easier way to finish the game, we
might put out a solve that will tell you how to finish it BEFORE
the genocide starts

Some basic hints with the game:
1. Try to find the Trader early on. He will have most of the info
you need and can give you many improvements for the game. Once
you find him and get the umgah caster from the Spathi then go
find two rainbow planets. One is to the SW of Delta Corvi (the
star system in the top left corner) in one of the two blue stars
in the Pegasi constellation. The other I found is at Beta
Copernicus - I. With these two you will get 1000 credits and
spend everything on technology. There is also one supposed
to be orbitting a large white sun, but I never found it.
2. When fighting the two Ur-Quan ships, you will find that the
Spalthi ship is the best until you can get your ship fully
powered up with the most powerful weapons and weapon-tracking
devices. As for the Mycon ships, the best is the Arilou since
it can keep teleporting and make the Mycon plasma balls hit the
Mycon ship! Stay away from the Yehat, you can beat them, but they
seem to take too much of a toll to be worth fighting. The
Thraddash and Vux are both easy to beat with a Spalthi.
3. You don't have unlimited time to finish the game. The genocide
starts around the beginning of 2059 and the game is over anywhere
between November 2059 to February of 2060. I think it is possible
to finish the game before the genocide starts, but you will have to
wait till later if you want the solve for the harder way to finish
4. You don't need to buy more than one type of each ship, if you lose
then just reload your game! This way you save money, have all
the ships and you can chose the one best for the enemy.
5. Get the warp device from the Arilou then use Quasispace as much as
possible, since it will save you enormous amounts of time and fuel.

Once you find a system then it will show up as a big circle (depending
on the influence of the alien race) on the star map.
The first thing to do is fly to Earth and talk to the base commander.
They won't be able to communicate well till you go to Mercury and get
some radioactives. Once you bring them back then you can buy fuel and
build up your ship. Head out to Pluto and scan the surface for energy
and then land to find the Spathi. Make it talk till it gives you the
coordinates for its home planet. Head there and make friends with the
Spalthi to gain some of their ships. Eventually they will shield
their planet and abadon you but you will get an Umgah caster to call
the trader anytime you are in hyperspace.
The Earth base will eventually tell you about the Zoqpov that are
asking for help. Go to the coordinates they give you and then to
the Zoqpov home at Alpha Tucanae (400.0:543.7). After they join you
then the next thing to do is go to the crashed Ur-Quan ship at
Beta Corvi and scan the planet for energy. Land and get the warp pod.
Then travel to 43.8:637.2 and wait for the 17th to the 20th of the
When the green hole in space opens up, go through it. Travel to the
the planet in the northeast corner and talk to the Arilou to get the
warp device enhanced. You should use quasispace for all long distance
travel in the future. I've included the quasispace map by Beamer so
that it may help you.
The probes are originating from the 2nd or 3rd gas planet in this
system. Talk to the gas being living there to get the self destruct
Go to the Vux Admiral at Alpha Cerencov (422.1:198.6) to hear about
the creature he is seeking. The creature can be found at the Lyncis
system (top north to the west of the Supox) on one of the yellow star
systems. Stay on the planet until a large monster comes out and then
shoot it till it is stunned. Make sure you have the protection from
alien creatures from the Trader or else you will die! Take the
creature back to the Vux Admiral and get the Shofixti maidens. Go
to Delta Gorno (just west of the Yehat) and find Tanaka. Keep
insulting him and then pressing ESC everytime you fight. Eventually
he will realize you are not the Ur-quan and the Shofixti will be
Now is the time to get the Ultron device from the Supox. After talking
to the Utwig race, go to the Supox and get the Ultron. You will have
to rebuild this if you want the Utwigs to join.
Rebuilding the Ultron
The Ultron has three parts, after you aquire each part choose manifest
and choose device, select each of the three parts and the Ultron will
eventually be fixed. Here are the steps to find each of the parts:
1. Go to the Pkunk and get the clear spindle (very easy and
2. Go to the Thraddash. You will have to find them about 10 times
until you can be their master. Then go to Zeta Draconis and
tell them you want to see their artifact. Take the ruby piece
and get out of there (they will be pissed!).
3. Ok, now I hear there is another way to do this but I did it the
the easy way. I waited till the genocide started and then got
the last piece from the Druuge at Zeta Persei I (946.9:280.6).
I hear you can get rid of the Druuge and Mycon by finding the
egg on the Mycon planet and taking it to the Syreen!
4. Once you get the third piece take the rebuilt Ultron back to the
Utwig and they will join you! Get the bomb from Zeta Hyades
VI - B after scanning for energy.
Go to the Mycon planet (again I waited for the genocide to make it
easier) and get the flower looking object in the system at 639.5:231.2.
Once again use scan for energy on the first planet.
Ilwrath Gods (22.9:366.6)
Go to the first planet and use the Umgah caster to move the Ilwrath to
attack the Thraddash. After the Ilwrath have left, go to Procyon and
use the flower object to destroy the red shield. Talk to the Chmmr
and they will give you some of their awesome ships. Before they will
power up your bomb, you must go the Ur-Quan home base at Delta Crateris
(620.0:593.5), and then you must pick up the talking pet at Beta
Orionis (Umgah territory). BUT you can't get the talking pet until
the genecide has destroyed the Umgah (at least as far as I know).
Once you have done both of these, then return to Procyon and the
Chmmr will make the bomb more powerful. After they return you to
the Earth base, get as many Chmmr ships as possible and also a Pkunk
ship (the only one that really worked for me on the last part).
Go to Delta Crateris (620.0:593.5) and choose manifest and device and
then pick the talking pet. He will move the shield away from the
planet. Then go to the planet and enter the Pre-cursor battle ship.
After fighting six Ur-Quan ships you will have to shoot a very hard
to kill ship. Enter the center of it and watch the ending! Can't
wait till the sequal!
