Official vs. Unofficial[edit]

Val, I'm not sure I catch your meaning in saying the Spathi alliance is unofficial. As I've understood it, we've used official to refer those races whose ships can be built at the Starbase. This only happens with races that formal enter into an alliance and send captains/delegates to the Starbase. As such the Spathi qualify. This is opposed to the unofficial status like the Pkunk, Arilou, and Yehat who merely provide ships on occasion, but do not give you the ability to construct their ships at the Starbase (no formal alliance). Also, the lone spathi you encounter refer to the alliance as a "mutual assistance pact" - sounds official to me. I'm guessing that we're interpreting "Official" differently, so what was you're reasoning for saying the Spathi alliance was unofficial? --Fyzixfighter 16:13, 12 May 2007 (CEST)

Oops. I used the data in the The Safe Ones article (which seems to indicate that the Spathi never actually join the Alliance). THAT article needs editing. Proceeding. Valaggar 16:36, 12 May 2007 (CEST)

Alliance largely contingent on player actions[edit]

i removed the daggers and this reference from the list of allies because all of the plot is contingent on player actions. the Orz and ZFP will ally with you if you visit with them, but maybe you never cross their space. certain alliances are necessary in order to attack the Sa Matra, like the Chmmer and i think Syreen, maybe the Utwig (which includes the Supox). i think that if we want to distinguish types of allies, it would be more useful to denote the ones who are integral in beating the game.
