Zuul and Space Travel

Post by chris0101 » Wed Nov 10, 2010 5:32 am

I was thinking after looking at Zuul ships - do they ever blow up in accidents or have leaks, exposing their crews to vacuums due to substandard construction? Their ships seem to be kitbashed parts from random ships of other races.

Quality control is indeed NOT a priority amongst zuul and while Master compartments often double as escape pods, the surrounding ship sections for their claw and slaves are not considered important enough for redundant systems like TWO tanks of air.

I'm thinking, even seasoned veteran races like the Morrigi suffer casualties from space exploration - what about the Zuul? They must lose lots of ships due to faulty construction, incompatible parts, etc. Space is not exactly a forgiving place. Not to mention, there are no construction standards as well on their ships.

heh, I'm now imagining a zuul ship coming to an emergency stop and the command section flying off due to inertia.

And you thought their strafe section was bad enough, without doubling up as a planetary missile!

Yes, I use Raptr. Prefer it to XFire.

I'd make a good spy. I always want to know what everyone else is doing. Being cooped up in an asteroid doesn't sound fun though...
