The attack on the Tobermoon in Oort's Cloud is not mysterious, SvdB. The "deep burns" and damage inflicted on the crew exclusively are signs of a probe attack. Its electric arc created such "deep burns' through which it entered the ship and incinerated the crew (like lightning), without dealing much damage upon the ship's systems. 16:44, 18 March 2007 (CET)

Since when do Slylandro probes kill the crew and leave the rest of the systems intact, and then just leave? — SvdB 18:05, 18 March 2007 (CET)
Since when do they just attack ships, kill only the captain, and leave (as it happened with the Tobermoon in HyperSpace on the way to Sol from Vela)? 19:37, 18 March 2007 (CET)
That would be another interesting mystery. But back to the original Tobermoon thing. Assuming the ship was attacked in 2135, as Chi was just leaving the Vela Oort Cloud, then it predates the appearance of the Probes (bought by the Slylandro 200-300 rotations prior to SC2), the arrival of the Orz, and the Androsynth destruction (who also disappear leaving no bodies). And the MO, specifically the lack of bodies, doesn't seem to line up with typical Hierarchy tactics. So, I'm putting it back in as it still is a mystery (who knows, could have been the <best Fwiffo voice>Ultimate Evil</best Fwiffo voice>). --Fyzixfighter 23:26, 18 March 2007 (CET)
Well, yeah. 14:53, 19 March 2007 (CET)

As to the Supox specifically, I think it did not effect them at all - they only got it AFTER it was broken, and give it to you BEFORE you fix it; if therefore, any effects the Ultron does have would have given the Supox a miss. User:

And what if not? It's still a mystery. Maybe the change was a "discrete change" as mentioned in the description found on Rigel about the "Appendages of Dawn", aka Ultron: "In the partially translated Precursor text, the device is described as a `Mental Amplifier'

which focuses the mental energies of the holder `for the purpose of discrete change'." Valaggar 14:23, 10 May 2007 (CEST)
