In Response To: Re: Ponderings on the Drinnol rebellion (Forrest of B.org)

: I rather don't like the idea of a whole bunch of cyborg Hulks, though; partly
: because the whole reason Hathor came back to here and now was to grab this
: one Hulk cause he is a Jjaro cyborg. I did just have a rather interesting
: notion though. I know people who are very intelligent, but so shy and
: introverted or emotionally unstable that you would never guess it.
: Borderline autistic, basically. What if the Drinniol as a race are like
: this? Actually a very bright species who's just so caught up between fear
: and anger (probably both tied to hunger, as the Drinniol have such a
: strange metabolism, see M1 terminals) that they can never think straight?
: Then one of them is granted the clarify of a view from Outside, and shows
: the others what they are all capable of. Thus no implantation is
: neccesary; it's just a sweeping social change. Once other Drinniol see
: what these apostles to the first one can do, and they rebel as well.
: Pretty soon the entire empire is in turmoil as rogue Drinniol emmisaries
: flit between worlds, inciting whole planets to uprising. They're only put
: "back in their place" again by the ultimate act of terrorism by
: the Pfhor - glassing their own worlds or destroying their own stars by the
: dozens or even hundreds.

I agree, a cultural revolution of sorts makes more sense; if this was in fact the Pfhor's first major revolt agsint them it's likely that their slaves may have had more social freedoms at the time, especially if they are as sheepish as Forrest submits (again, while in servitude; they can get nasty in battle...remember little Johnny?); such a climate would make the spread of self-realization through social change pretty easy.

Also, there is mixed evidence that beings implanted with Jjarotech seek to implant others as an intrinsic function of the implant; we as the player contain Jjarotech but it is not our mission to spawn further cyborgs. The S'pht are the exception to this, needing implants for sentience, though it can be debated whether their implanting system was a "gift" form Yrro and if Yrro was actually Jjaro...
