Should the Wexxians go out with a “Goodbye friends” RP, or should they just fade from focus of galactic politics.

Bye Robots… we got it covered while you guys are away! Bon Voyage. (RP)
No way… an inactive Wexxian is still better than no Wexxian at all. (No RP)

//As the floating Wexxians enter the Vessel of ours we try of course to do our best to impress them. At first we take them to the Garden, it is a very interessting garden, it holds plants from over 200 different planets. Then we show them our cockpit. Our cockpit is semi-plantbased, semi-machine. The plants are there to do the processing while the computers do the calculation processes. Then we show them our altar. We have a pretty well-made altar, it is rather complex as it is made of 7 different woods, and the ancient words are carved into it. Our priest teaches the Wexxians about our history, about our beliefs. The Wexxians seem to understand, and they seem to like our words. I see greatness in these metallic people. They have the heart of Gjah. They too seem to honour all life. At the end of their visitation I hand them a Gilphy, a horn like instrument made of Hijah wood. It is more a representation of friendship as they probably wont be able to use it. They seemed to like the Gilphy though

Get a job you lousy hippies!

Seriously, the Gjah are getting more nauseating by the second. How did they even reach the iron age? Wouldnt burning wood be awfuwy bad fow the enviwoment?  :P

Quiet, you ViS are a disgrace for the face of mother nature. You are genetically engineered abominations, and we do not aprove your dullness. Simplicity is not a bliss it is a cancer. Furthermore, we have thermal wells on our homeworld that are hot enough to forge iron.

//How convenient. So every species which developed on a planet without these magic vents is condemned to a life of stone age savagery?
Youre just lucky  you came from a planet where nature is lovey-dovey nice. I would argue that the ViS embody nature much more than you do. We compete, and fight, and strive against this cruel universe. We have elevated ourselves to the stage where nature can not touch us. And before this elevates into the inevitable war I remind you that trees BURN. Just think about it.
Ta-taa for now. I look forward to our next little discourse//

Hmm that is actually a tuoght decision. the entire Wexxian military is based on space-air supremacy. there is no ground based military whatsoever! this is quite understandable since it is only few years since Azuron was Terraformed, before that all Wexxians where concerned about was space! It never occurred to the Wexxians that ground combat might be something they would face!

The other issue is that the Wexxians don´t like war. Ground combat is much more difficult to keep from being lethal. but It is true that mechs and battelsuits would be usefull in situations like the one on Durl...

I will have to think about this!  :-\

Not Actually!

The Wexxians tactic is that they use Ionic disrupter's to pierce through the enemy's shield and disable the ship systems, then while the crew of the disabled ship is getting life support back up and running, a small delegation of Wexxians land on the hull of the ship and destroy the weapons and shield generators! After that the ship has two options, float through space until they get hit by something, or surrender!

On the ground, that sort of tactic is useless!... Anny Ideas?

The wexxians become pioneers of exotic non-lethal weapons perhaps?

That would be cool. Since they are hippies and all wouldn't it be within their style to want to incapacitating their opponents without hurting them? Man, just how pissed a Torpal would be if you  incapacitated them. They would probably try to kill themselves before getting captured.
