: You know, that's a really good point. We're told that the Pfhor have not
: suffered a defeat like the S'pht rebellion since the Nahk revolt. The
: Pfhor Empire is SACKED by the S'pht rebellion - does that imply that the
: Pfhor empire was sacked by the Nahk too? And since the Drinniol rebellion
: is called the worst slave revolt in Pfhor history, what did THEY do? Maybe
: this is another reason why the Pfhor empire isn't as advanced as one would
: expect an empire that was blowing up stars 6000+ years ago to be - every
: few thousand years, they get knocked back to the stone age by some client
: race.

I don't think this would be the case; for all practical purposes, a rebellion stops being a rebellion once the oppressed have thown off the opressors and begin offensive actions that do not fall within the realm of self-liberation. The Nahk revolt apparently did not escalate into war (nor the Drinniol revolt, it was put down with the trih xeem), whereas the S'Pht revolt did. Indeed, the S'Pht revolution was their convenient entry into a war that was already technically being fought between the U.E.S.C. and The Pfhor Empire...
