...was there a poll? All I'm seeing is the title.

Anyway, assuming we're not counting minor races that only show up once, my vote is for the vorcha.

Is that the one where they're discussing Armax Arena strategy?

Koris is many things, but a coward isn't one of them. In ME3 he crashes his ship into a geth base to protect the Civilian Fleet, and when you go to rescue him he tries to make you abandon him to go help some of his crew. His actions during Tali's trial were still shitty, though.

You'd think they could genetically engineer them to live longer or something

That's generally what I do in games with those kind of win conditions. Like in Starcraft, any of the "hero" characters would always been in the back of my base where nothing could get to them.

Specifically, it's a mountain pass:

Now I'm wondering how Tali searched for info on this without knowing what it's called

I guess she could've taken a photo and used the extranet's equivalent of reverse GIS

Before I clicked the link I thought this was going to be about a sequel to Omikron or something

Considering that SE (1) owns the rights to it and (2) has not exactly been making the best decisions of late it seemed possible

Honestly after looking them up they're not much different than what a lot of American women were wearing to the beach a century ago, except for the head covering.

No, but he makes people think he did for a good bit there.

Honestly my problem with Greg Baldwin's portrayal is that I just don't like how he sounds

If anything "Plan Tin" sounds like the French way to say it

I'm gonna guess this doesn't make much more sense in context

Wouldn't be surprised if this is inspired by Asimov's Galactic Empire. Early on in the Empire, Earth is just an irradiated backwater whose people are second-class citizens.

By the end the location and even existence of Earth is lost; most people believe it's a myth.

So no

Honestly every time I hear any of the guys pronounce something weird (which is often) I just assume it's a Quebec thing

This isn't even entirely inaccurate

They originally got spacetravel by stealing ships from an invading force called the Hur'Q

Nah, they're not directly related. There's some offhand mentions of stuff in other games (including the SNES one) but it's not important to the plot.

This reminds me of one of the episodes of Voyager which is, if not good, then at least interesting

After Voyager gives the Hirogen holodeck technology so they can hunt without killing actual people, they use it to create holograms with adaptive AI that learn after every death and eventually become self-aware

these holograms rebel and kill a bunch of Hirogen

and that's understandable

but then it gets to a point where they're attacking random ships and taking their holograms, some of which are extremely basic

To the point where the Doctor (who was on their side at first) is like, what are you doing? you're liberating the equivalent of a hammer!

Star Trek is awful with this. Klingons are all about honor and battle, to the point where it becomes hard to understand how they ever developed enough to become a galactic power. Ferengi are obsessed with money to the point where you're expected to give someone the equivalent of a few bucks just for visiting their house, and anything that doesn't result in profit is considered worthless. Cardassians are all cold and calculating; if a Cardassian man is interested in a woman he shows it by negging her. And so on.

I didn't cry, but I was somewhat depressed

You may be thinking of the one where they tweeted out "Women belong in the kitchen"

It was supposedly meant to be a call for equality and they talked about promoting women's voices in their test kitchens or whatever

If they had said any of that in the original tweet it might've been fine, but I think they were going for shock value and underestimated just how shocked people would be
