"and then a shivan comes along!"
Allright, I aint much of a scholar on Shivans, but tell me, where do you think the Shavans come from? Was it just evolition, or was it an awful experiment by the ancients gone wrong? I go for the latter, how else would an insect like society grow a cannon for an arm?

Oh geez, we have two thunders and now we have two black aces.    

This post serves no other purpose.    

Edit:  Ok, dark ace, black ace... still pretty close.

Wherever they came from it was definately NOT the ancients.  If you remember the cutscenes from FS1 correctly it was specifically stated that the Ancients encountered the Shivans in the same manner that they had encountered many other races.

Whatever they are and wherever they came from it was definately external to the Ancients.
I told you that It would be done by November, well, mostly anyway...

I'm working on something new... shhhhh, it's a seceret.

I had this really massive acid trip one day... and thensome joker plugged me into a Neural Image Projector and made a Shivan. True story.

Personally, I still like to hold to the theory that the actual Shivans are like us humans, fragile and whatever, but the Shivans that we see are actually suits. What if an alien saw an astronaut, complete with white space suit and EMU? They'd probably think we were constructed too...

But when you did an autopsy on the astronaut you`d soon figure out that it was just a suit.
 The GTA did capture shivan ships and almost certainly captured shivans (dead or alive). The only way they could be in bio suits is if the GTVA knows it but hasn`t released that fact.

Yeah, but we just know it's not: Volition themselves told us that what we saw were actual shivans and they really looked the way they are. So...
For where they come from... They come from very far I bet

I believe that he is Dark Force(Dark_4ce... 4=fource Dark Fource   )


Back on topic: I hold the theory that they are the Cosmic destroyers (and also the great perservers), so they maybe came from cosmos itself, or they came from another place... they just act too weird to be some planet like species... they seem to the personification of the Universe.... well that's my humble (and crazy...) opinion  
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?


Raven is a god.

Unless they transformed their home planets into a spaceship (i.e. slap on some bloody great engines).

Cosmic garbage disposal? Yeah I can see that, much like that Stephen King Mini series where that airplane flies through a tear in time and they land in a stranded airfield. Then from nowhere come these flying cannonballs with teeth, chewing up all the past and useless stuff.

Yeh... the first FreesSpace is apparently about how they are some kinda race assigned to punishing those who leave their chosen role in space (at least I gather fron the Reference Bible). The second is devoted to- "hey, they ain't so tough after all". 100 Sathanases v. a Hecate is nothing compared to the difference between, say, an FS1 Orion and the Lucifer.

You mean Centerpoint? I think I know what you're getting at, but wasn't that some sort of interdiction field generator? Been a LONG time since I read those books.

That ain't scary, try getting up 4:00 am in the morning to go to work and coming home around 11:00 pm and only having another 5 hours of sleep before work again. Thank god I quit that job.
