            Plays much like any other W:ET derivatives, from what I understand. But it did have this weird thing where the default game mode was player team vs bots.

            It was a bunch of half-baked ideas tacked together and rushed out the door. If they had focused on just a few aspects instead of trying to do everything at once, it might have succeeded, but they were lazy and thought that they could fix it after launch.
            >cool story in a unique setting with a singleplayer campaign... which is just the multiplayer mode with bots
            >(also the setting is mostly elaborated on in the laziest possible way: audio logs)
            >dynamic objectives that change as the game progresses... which is too difficult of a concept for most FPS player to understand
            >interesting map ideas with lots of visual details... except most of the maps are horrible to play on, some have near-insurmountable chokepoints, so people just play on the two least imbalanced maps
            >body types with different mobility and health to take advantage of the parkour... except the medium and heavy bodies are the only ones people use, which means the parkour is largely ignored
            And then they launch it with, like, six or seven maps. No surprise, the game flops in a week. I'm still bitter about it.

            Splash Damage are terminally incompetent. They can't code and they have no idea how to design or improve gunplay so none of their 21st century vidya have ever been more than a standard deviation or more below industry standards. Not to mention the scope of content they try to deliver has never been what either OG W:ET players want or new players so they've been making dead projects their entire careers. Somehow keeping employed because talent bankrupt mega-publishers keep destroying good studios and that means others that can just make a half-baked game in a reasonable time seem fantastic. SD are dogshit.

      This whole game is some of the biggest "what the actual FRICK?!" I have seen in this industry in decades. There is not a single actual decision in it that makes any semblance of sense, it feels like a parody of actual game development, like if the fricking Minions were in charge of making the game.

        >Shoddy mocap
        I actually have a strong suspicion that they didn't use mocap at all. It would explain a LOT of the issues with the cutscenes. I think this is hand-animated, and that is why it's so bad.
        They clearly struggled with this before, mind you. DoK has this really strange real-life footage conversion tech that looks awkward as hell too, though it is amazing compared to what HW3 does.
        But the movement and even the emoting is so fricking off, so bizzarely unfitting the obviously otherwise face-scan provided models, that my only possible conclusion is that it's a result of people who don't have very good basis of how people move, trying to animate static models literally by dragging the skeleton around manually, and using some expression reference book for emoting, not realizing that the expressions in that book are exaggerated to all hell and back.

        This really feels like an american 3D cartoon, where larger-then-life expressions are integral to the visual language, and are created by hand, not via mocap.

            The uncanny effect comes from relatively high-fidelity models moving incredibly unrealistically. E.g. the models were facial capture but the animation was not.

      The animations and modeling for the humans simply aren't very good. Small errors in faces add up quickly unless you rely on style to keep you out of the uncanny valley, which is why it's so common to see faces be ultra-simplified or covered up in lower budget projects.

      The only character with a decent face is the ops guy. You want to know why? He's got a beard that covers half of it so his chin and cheeks don't look weird. But even then his actual movements are awkward, which ruins the illusion.

            To be fair, HW1 already introduced the idea of Kushan society to be heavily matri-focused. There is even a fight between an old-fashioned male general and a progressive-thinking female warleader in the HW1 manual. It has been always heavily implied that the tribal Kushan society puts a special emphasis on women in leadership, which isn't that strange if you ever studied societies like the Iroquez league societies.

                I am absolutely not disputing this, or defending HW3's writing. I'm just pointing out that emphasis on female characters is not the source of the problem - as this was done in some way in every HW game so far. People saw the reveal of Khagaan's face in DoK extremely favorably.

                It's the bad writing that is the problem, and the story would be equally as fricking moronic if the protagonists and villains were male. The fundamental failure of HW3 is that it was written by an alien who has never talked to a real human in their entire life, not to mention has no fricking clue what made HW stories good. Frankly, I doubt they even knew what previous HW games were about.

                We literally already had the story being about two "strong female leads" in DoK and it was fine, at times, even great (dumb plot twist towards the end, and the general complete lore rape not withstanding). It's not the problem, it's just...
                The writing, the presentation, the direction, all of it is SO. FRICKING. SHIT. In HW3. It's just mindboggling incompetence, horrifying lack of even most basic standards, absolutely deranged direction decisions at every step of it.

      It's how narcissists write. They write a story about themselves, with literally no capacity to consider how it comes across to people around.

      Both Imogen and the Queen are just projections of the author, and both are exclusively about (undeserved) validation of their unquestionable superiority and coolness.

      The author wrote the queen the way she is because she herself resents everyone and everything, believing herself to be actually superior to everyone, and justifying that attitude to herself by declaring herself being a victim of evil society that just didn't validate them enough.

          Because arrogance, activism and minority status have became considered most important qualities in selections for prominence in media industries due to very-long history of western academic thoughts and beliefs per-occupied with idealistic notions of revolutionary social improvements.

          If you are narcissistic enough to believe yourself qualitified by default, if you are shameless enough to exploit your unrelated "minority" status to gain leverage, if you are completely unscrupulous in politics on the workplace, and if you display resentment to the "old values and old society", you simply have advantage in the hiring and promoting process. Meanwhile, if you are humble, mild-mannered, if you believe your work should be more important than your social status or edgy attitude: you simply won't get anywhere, you'll be reliably outcompeted.

          It's a system inherently predisposed to serve narcissists and opportunists, which is also why it spreads like a virus: it enables untalented people to shut down competition per-emptively, and once you get into that position, you are going to make sure it stays in place so that the threat is neutralized for as long as possible.

              Again, whenever you manage to succesfully frame yourself as a minority - or at least, "defender of minorities" is again, matter of your arrogance and shamelessness. The whole point of the endless identity labels is to make sure anyone and everyone can frame themselves as a poor oppressed minority - or at least defender of some minority - if they are just assholish enough.

              I agree with most of your shit, but canon is important. It brings consistency to the lore and universe, and allows people to be on the same page when talking about it. Also as long as you get good writers on board and not the hacks that seemed to work on this, canon helps them not frick up too bad, but when you have nebulous canon and write an "everything goes" story, then you will just split the community.

              >It brings consistency to the lore and universe
              It demonstrably does not. Again. Cata is non-canon, HW2 and 3 are canon. So is DoK.

              Despite the fact that DoK contradicts HW1 and HW2 and 3 are literal gibberish. Cata - the only non-canon entry in the HW universe, is the only one that does not completely contradict the original game.
              Consistency to lore is only created by writing in a way that does not contradict other titles. Again, the "canon" status - as proven by HW2, 3 and DoK - does not prevent massive contradictions and inconsistencies. If anything, the notion of Canon is being used to OBSCURE the settings consistency and thematic continuation. We have seen that done a dozen times. How many times we have seen the concept of "Canon" works being used to render good fiction irrelevant, and enforce dumb new unwanted directions on a franchise? Star Wars, anyone? The recent shitshow that was the Amazon Fallout (property of BethesdaTM)?

              I love the idea of world-building, I think it's an under-appreciated form of narrative art, and especially interesting in context of videogames. But I'm going to say straight up that the concept of "Canon" is holding it back, not contributing to it.

          Writing is considered the "dump department", along with marketing, design and auxillary management (ie. HR etc.). These are the dumping grounds for all the undesirables, and are never held responsible for what they do, even though they absilutely can tank a project. It's also positions with the highest exposure (outside of leads/managers) to the MBA morons at the top. An art designer can show "this is what our game will look like", a writer can say "this is what it's about". The gameplay designers can't show "this is how it plays", none of the suits enjoy games and the people actually making a game can't show "this is how it's coded"

      When you have a stupid worldview that sees the locus of power and evil in the white man, therefore only allows white men to behave as moral agents. You then write stupid narratives where all women and brown people are children who take no responsibility for their actions since they are apparently in a unique position where they didn't create or have responsibility for their surroundings, no matter how powerful they are.

      This is the result of a writer whose brain is operating 80% in twitter space and 20% in the fictional realm. Either it's stupid, clumsy propaganda or they are just unaware they are narcissistic children and she is an unintentional expression of this

    So... what the frick is up with the hyperspace core exclusivity again?
    I did finish HW2 once, long time ago. I don't remember almost anything from that game.

    Did they actually ever fricking explain how the frick are there only handful of hyperspace cores, when literally EVERY FRICKING SHIP BIGGER THAN A FRICKING CORVETTE CAN HYPERSPACE JUMP?!

    How the frick is that supposed to work? Also, why the everloving frick were Kushans allowed to fricking keep the most important fricking artifact in the galaxy, on them when they were sent to an exile. An exile that had an underlying, EXPLICIT treaty, that they are not allowed to ever use hyperspace ever again, under the penalty of genocide.

    This whole plot-device seems like the dumbest, most straight up nonsensical retcon I've ever seen in gaming history. Why the everloving frick did HW3 decided to actually fricking follow up on this story that literally everyone absolutely hated?

        To be fair, the most talented writer on HW1's team was also actually relegated exclusively to manual duty. David J. Williams, a well established professional sci-fi writer, mainly wrote the manual, while the game's script was written by one Arinn Dembo.

      I think the idea is that hyperspace cores are ancient technology that all the various civilizations of the galaxy can replicate, but hardly any of them actually understand. Which feels like a massive asspull that Imogen can just make synthetic cores when as far as I know, not even the Bentusi were privy to let anyone know how to produce homegrown cores or they didn't know themselves.

      It's another "we didn't bother to read up on a primer of the setting" instance right next to the black man mocking the Galsians when the Galsians were 100% right about their world ending prophecies.

        To be fair: this is an asspull that was introduced in HW2, not HW3. In fact early on in HW3, it almost feels like they are trying to move away from the idiotic story of HW2, with Imogen understanding the hyperspace tech and being able to replicate it freely, purely based on science, as opposed to the OG HW2's "it's space-magic" homosexualry.
        They immediately fall into the same trap, even make it worse later on in the story, which again makes me feel like this game was written by fricking Minions or something, but... yeah, this idiotic aspect of the story isn't HW3 exclusive issue.

          To my understanding, the events of Cataclysm are still of dubious canon when it probably had the right idea of where to go after Homeworlds journey to go home after losing your last one. You have the bottom of the barrel mining clan shake up the order of things by being the only ones willing to take the risks to stop and ancient, alien horror. If Homeworld 3 really wanted to move on from 2, just expand on that idea with the Hiigarans slowly falling into the same pitfalls as before being a menace and the Incarnate Queen is the despotic rule of a now waxing Hiigaran Empire with the player being a breakaway faction or some shit.

          If 1 is about going home, Cataclysm about change, then 3 could've been about the sins of the past. The Sins of a Solar Empire, if you will.

            Actually they have been explicitly declared non-canon, though at this point I'm starting to fricking hate the concept of "Canon" more than anything else. Who gives a frick what is canon, DoK completely ruining the story of the Kar Toba discovery didn't "Ruin" the glory that is HW1's manual, it's still there, it's what HW1's story rests on, so who cares if it has the *canon status or not.
            With all that said:

            Yeah, I cannot begin fathoming why the frick did they decide to continue from HW2, whose story was universally absolutely hated. And yeah, there always was a massive underlying implication in the actually good HW games (HW1 and Cata), that Hiigarans may have very much fricking deserved their exile, and that their society may have always been tiny-tiny absolutely FRICKED UP.
            They could have not created a better fricking foundation of a story in which we see the Hiigarans (at least part of them) become the fricking villains again, it's absolutely what the story was building up to.

            But no, we need to watch some moronic literal fanfiction b***h who is the bestest at everything go on a magical journey of self-discovery in which she learns to overcome her self-doubts, because being the bestests at everything is not enough, everyone needs to also loudly tell you how you are bestest too, otherwise it's not enough.

              Because no matter what anyone says, canon to a fictional setting is important. It's effectively "all the things that definitely happened" that ensure everyone engaging with it can actually talk about it on an even level, it's also why whenever something new gets added can either break canon with conflicting information or just outright contradicts it. It's also the thing that sells a setting, we care about Homeworld BECAUSE of the canon of 1 and the less well received 2. Without the canon, what's the point?

                It's really, really, REALLY not. The concept of canon has became, quite literally, just a marketing tool, it exists because people form irrational, absurd religion-like attitudes towards complex fictional universes, which can be incredibly easily exploited by the IP holders.

                In reality, a story only matters because of how it connects with the audience on an intellectual and emotional level. There is no "what definitely happened" because it's fiction: none of it happened, it's not real, it's a symbolic shorthand for universally relatable truths and/or interesting and valuable observations contained within the narrative itself.

                To specifically label certain narratives inspired by the core title as "canon" and others "non-canon" is purely arbitrary, it holds no value or relevance. Cata's story is great, and whenever it is considered canon or not does not in any way impact your appreciation of the story. HW2 is absolute trash, and no amount of labeling it canon will change the fact that it's meaningless and worthless in relationship to HW1 or Cata.

                This is true of every "expanded universe" story in the world.

                You're half right, in that people do care about the characters and their trials and tribulations in the story being told. Which is also why lore, or "canon" is so important. Unlike reality, we can make up entire universes with pretend histories and know with 100% certainty what happened in them because that's exactly how it was written, by the person writing it. There are events that happened 4 years ago that hardly anyone even remotely agrees on even though everyone who would be alive to talk about it would've been also been alive to witness it. Fictional canon is quite literally the only time we can ever truly have someone say "this happened, because of Y story or event" and it would be 100% correct. It's also why people are getting so upset with Homeworld 3 or Rings of Power or whatever new bullshit is being pushed out by Hollywood or the gaming industry. It's effectively ruining an entire setting people care about and enjoyed as a shared space and just destroying it for a cheap buck or worse reasons that I'd rather not get into right now.

                So yeah, it paradoxically does and doesn't matter.

                Not really. In fact the best world-building in my experience stems from ambiguity of truth, rather than it being 100% revealed. Case in point: HW1's very, very unclear explanation of how Kushans ended up in exile, or what the greater political stage actually looks like in HW1.
                Ultimately, whenever the fictional narrative matters or not, boils down to how successfully it evokes certain emotions, which is dictated by how it aligns with our real-life experience. For an example, HW1's narrative is so god damn great because it reflects deeper, more universal truths than the average value system of western society can capture: Kushans are so damn great because they are so different (tribal and cruel), yet still relatable as we understand much of that strangeness comes from their harsh history, and resonates with parts of us that we don't often want to acknowledge. When the infamous "Subject did not survive the interrogation" lines plays, it hits so hard because we know that is morally wrong from our point of view, but absolutely relatable and understandable from theirs, and that realization is enriching and there is a catharsis to be found in it, in relating to that action.

                That is what construes a value within a narrative: it's the act of us finding the settings reflecting or recontextualizing our experience - ambiguity being part of it.
                And that should be the only thing that really matters to us. Clarity isn't valuable if that clarity does not connect to or reflect our experience. HW3's characters and their motivations are absolutely unambiguous, to a point of every emotion being both exaggerated in animation, and elaborated on in dialogue... and see where it leads us to? The more clarity there is in HW3, the worse it becomes as a story, because that clarity only helps to draw attention to how artificial and alien the story is.

                One would assume if literally all of their knowledge of hyperspace is derived from these cores, and if their ability to use them depends on their physical proximity, they would know how to track them. Also, in HW1 it's extremely clearly stated that every hyperspace core has a unique signature, almost like a fingerprint, and this knowledge is used by every side involved in the conflict. Which makes it even sillier: the core is instantly indentifiable to any ship passing through. And it was the acting core of Kar Toba vessel, and was running active for centuries after they landed on Karak, as the source of energy for the First City. And we know that they system was under CONSTANT monitoring, and any hyperspace signature active in the system was instantly discovered, resulting in the Taiidan fleet literally punishing the re-activation of the hyperspace drive in matter of days.

        Yeah. Because Kharak was technologically on par with 20th century real world. Of course the detailed nature of quantum tunneling was beyond their technological understanding when they discovered Kar Toba.

        >assuming the taidan were what they were, a slave uprising.
        Actually HW1 heavily implies that the decision to exile Hiigarans was made by the Galactic Council (the same one that enforces no atmospheric ignition device policy). Which implies the situation was far more complex and political than hiigarans being imply ousted by slave uprising. And by the way, remember that cutscene in HW1 that shows the convoy of exile ships slowly falling apart?
        What are the odds of the only one that made it to Kharak System happend to be the one who somehow held the most important mcguffin in the universe that nobody noticed going missing, while they were LOADING PRISONERS TO THESE PRISON BARGES.

    The decision to put a face to every character is mindbogglingly stupid in context of a Homeworld game.

    The decision to also go for INCREDIBLY cartoony over-animation actively emulating style of western 3D cartoons - AND to combine that with non-idealized facial models is what moves this away from bad decision making, to completely and utterly surreal.

    Like: You can absolutely imagine and understand how an idiotic executive backed up by souless marketing charts could go and say: "The chart says people want personal drama, so make it more personal, everyone needs a face and personal dillema to overcome!"

    But the same idiotic exect DIDN'T say: "also while you are at it, make them MORE like cartoons!" That decision, that was made by someone on the development team, not by Gearbox suits, and that is what fricking baffles me. That is why it feels so fricking bizzare.

                The setting was already flanderized when Yuri got his own faction of mind controlled slaves with hyper gatling turrets or the Soviets getting cloning technology to pump out even more conscripts, or the first Soviet mission in Yuri's Revenge having you go back in time to the dinosaur age by accident. The setting was already camp, which was part of the charm. I won't defend the greater emphasis on naval combat, I didn't much care for that one or how damn near every unit had an ability of some sort. Can't a dude with a gun or a tank just be a frickin tank?

                Ok, RA3 was flanderized... I mean sure you can have that opinion, but RA 2 was a complete carricature already. The only difference is that RA3 was now a caricature in 3d which is probably what bothers you more. Unless you will tell me that yuri and the whole tesla soldiers, desolators, psi commandos. Shit was absolute cheese and I loved it.
                Also casual piece of shit? Having multiple units with abilities was the exact opposite. RA 2 was as casual as it got, nobody played RA for its deep involved strategy or high octane micro requirements, there was no huge competitive scene. RA 3 tried to at least make it a slightly more complex game, for better or worse.

      Trust me, that is a question that any HW fan is asking himself, and finding absolutely no answer.

      It sure as frick was a long chain of frick-ups and failures though, likely related to blackbird being essentially a gearbox front at this point. One thing to note is that the HW3 team literally lost more than half of their staff back in mid 2023, meaning the studio has been literally falling apart for a year now at least.

      It is hard to imagine the actual chain of constant frick-ups, employee turn-over, changes in direction... the game has 15 different credited writers at this point, the lead designer was the guy who previously literally only did the ship art design, and the woman who spoke most in-depth about the story, the pinkhaired abominatio? Well she literally isn't even part of the Blackbird studio, she is literally just a Gearbox employee.

      I think it's fairly safe to assume that HW3 has been sabotaged from the start by Gearbox itself, which by now has become just a embezzlement front.

      Somewhat unrelated but do you think the guy that came up with the unbounds in cataclysm is okay right now ? If I were him, between HW2 quietly using the concept as to why Karan is around and 3 rebranding it to make it a stupid spurned UberFrauen plotline with the queen, I'd be pissed.

            The thing is - between DoK and HW3, we also got Hardspace, and that shit should have indicated some problems way before the deranged pinkhair b***h even started giving away interviews about the epic girlboss vibes of HW3 story, and way before the news of most of the team being sacked, and way before the very very questionable demo.
            I absolutely can relate to how DoK left you hoping for HW3 to be at least... decent, but there were so many red flags happening before HW3 was released... if you still bought it on release, you kinda do have yourself to blame.

    The craziest thing about HW3 is that it's not some wholly owned corporate subsidiary studio, it's a private developer that has every possible tie to Relic that is going to go down in flames over this. You usually assume it was a bunch of corporate guys that let women writers do what they want because they're working for EA or Microsoft and they just want a peaceful paycheck and don't care if the game sucks at the end, as long as they can point to the part they did and say it was good.

      >Unless Gearbox (Embracer subsidiary) just completely took them over during development
      They very clearly did.
      The sheer amount of control over the studio was pretty damn obvious even back when DoK came out, and the god damn manual for the game was sold for 6 dollars extra. And after what happened with Hardspace, even if they fired the b***h directly responsible, should have let you know the leadership in that company is beyond weak, and way too entangled with Gearbox's bullshit.
      Also, during the process of development, the studio changed owners TWICE, as far as I can tell. First by Embracer, then by Take2. Again, people seem to forget this, but last year, Blackbird lost more than HALF of it's permanent staff as part of embracer's implosion, before being unseremoniously sold off to the most ville and evil publisher in history, Take2.
      This seems to also coincide with the game's biggest re-write, which apparently has happened only about year ago, if people datamining the whole case are correct.

        it is clear that the rewrite happened because the delay occurred not long after the ping haired b***h got inserted into the studio

        True. They did fire the b***h responsible for that however. It was a huge case actually, as the b***h (who was very specifically hired to supervise Hardspace, as the studio didn't want to relocate core developers away from HW3 development) was later charged with multiple lawsuits regarding psychological and physical abuse of her team members. Which was particularly funny considering how she was the author of the "evil abusive corporate leaders" story, and also because she was highly esteemed member of one of the biggest "women in gaming" advocacy and activism groups in the industry.

    So what’s the official party line for all the discord/gaming circlejerk/resetera trannies who constantly try to post “woke isn’t real” shit on here for this game? What’s the non-woke reason it was so bad?

      >What’s the non-woke reason it was so bad?
      Complete lack of direction and strong leadership in general. The directional role of the game was handed to a guy who was previously only responsible for the game's technical artwork, there were two publisher take-overs while the development happened, half of the studio was sacked 1 year before release, the game was delayed internally for years, there are 15 writers credited under this, including numerous people - most notably the woman seemingly responsible for a lot it as she did accurately sum up the story for us six months ago - who literally weren't even members of the studio, they were people from Gearbox's upper management.
      I don't think a single thing went right in the development of this game. "Woke" bullshit barely explains the process of hiring some of these anti-talents, and the game's issues run a lot deeper than just the absolute comedy of it's story, which again - in itself seems to literally be a patchwork solution after the last COMPLETE re-write happened maybe less than a year ago.

    It sucks how after HW, there were two possibles routes: HWC, which was a scifi horror tale that expanded the political galaxy, and HW2, which threw all that away in favor of a mystic emotional nutrek fable. I wanted to hear more about the Taiidan republic, the Galactic Council, all the things HW2 tossed aside. And I hate that HW3 doubled down on the mystic shit that was previously only reserved for the Bentusi.

      Yeah, that is always the funniest thing: the uncanny ability to consistently directly contradict their own point.
      This a game about "strong female protagonists" who are all without exception insufferable, over-emotional, irrational pussies uttrerly incapable of handling any form of difficulty without the male supporting cast coddling them the whole way through (or if they don't, literally becoming genocidal maniacs... but "you totally have to sympatise with them, because they were feeling lonely!")

      It's fricking hilarious that the worst case of most redneck misogynist could have could have not come up with a story more fricking demeaning to women, than the one they ended up landing on.
      Kinda like when you see only really ugly black characters in games these days, because... blacks can't relate to them if they aren't ugly, right?

    I'm going to try and sketch out a better story real quick.
    It's a story about a small Kiith Gaalsien fleet, who have been allowed to, as a show of good faith, rebuild themselves at last. A tutorial mission explaining the basic mechanics of the game hunting pirates ends with the majority of the Gaalsien fleet destroyed by a Siidim sneak attack, leaving behind only a single ship - the Saju-ka and its junior commander, the young Gaalthan, as the effective Kiith-sa of the Gaalsien.

    With the Siidim doctoring evidence to make it seem that the Gaalsien struck them first, the Gaalsien remnants are banished from the Homeworld and must find their own way for desparate survival. They face assaults by their fellow Kiith, Incarnate remnants, opportunistic pirates. Over time the young Kiith-sa grows from a young commander out of his depth to a warlord who holds his people together with brute force and a necessary cult of personality.

    It ends with the young Gaalthan starting his own bandit kingdom and with tooth and nail fighting off a combined Hiigaran assault to create the Gaalsien Ascendancy, who will soon strike back against their betrayers.

      that wouldn't make for a very satisfying story. People who aren't HW lore geeks would have no clue why they should care about Gaalsein in the first place, branching of to make your own little country with hookers and blackjack isn't exactly satisfying conclusion, and from a standpoint of one of the lore geeks - it does not make sense either, because the whole Gaalsein thing really, REALLY should be water under the bridge by literally the third mission of HW1, and does not make sense they would be ostrakized in the first place.

      I could see a story being buld around what frankly, the franchise always logically build up to: Hiigarans becoming the villains. They were always a fricked up society: the history of Kharak is fricking insane, and it's heavily implied this isn't just a product of the harsh life on Kharak - there is a reason why they were exiled in the first place.

      But I really don't think Gaalsein should be the subject of this, they have long, LONG since been pardoned.
      I could see a lot of potential in the idea of S'jet specifically becoming drunk with power. In the lore, I'm pretty sure S'jet worked with Naabal on developing chemical and biological warfare, which was something that admitedly saved the society during the Heresy wars, but still... they are not above getting their hands really fricking dirty.
      It would also be a nice way to dig themselves out of the HOLE that was HW2 story. They could reframe all the magical bullshit core nonsense as S'jet ideology, a quasy-religious belief system that actually - fricking paints the "Unbound" as actual fricking gods. That is fricked up when you think about it, you could work with the idea that S'jet has been building a cult of themselves, and have the story early on depict S'jet ships massacring largely harmless people who just deny Karan's claim to goodhood at this point.
      Nabaan could be used as the people forced to rebel against S'jet's growing power hunger, now that I think about it.

        TA, no, no he's got a point.

        I am kinda right now infuenced by re-watching the story trailer for HW3 and realizing how STUPIDLY they push the Karan as the SOLE protagonist of the story, and it really makes me think about how that could have been an actually clever way to introduce conflict, if the team had any self-awareness at all.

        The trailer just unapologetically says "It was S'jet that found Khar-Toba, S'Jet that build the Mothership, S'jet that realized the threat of Vaygr, and S'jet that will save the world again."

        And I'm really thinking... what would other Kiiths think of this interpretation of the story. Especially Nabaan is getting shafted hard here: all of the space tech that lead to discovery of Khar Toba, and the vast majority of the industrial force needed to build the Mothership was Nabaan's doing, S'jets only provided Karan. And Karan wasn't the LEADER of The Exiles, she was just a human interface to integrate info from the ships vast and complex A.I. and sensors system. She absolutely was a in that story, but actually saying it was all just her doing is fricking wrong, and fricked up, goes against the whole fricking idea of the Kiith being UNITED.
        Nabaan were also actually just the largest population, by sheer numbers, among the survivors.

        And it really makes me think about a story where S'Jets are slowly but steadily usurping power in the new Hiigaran society and building a religious cult around their national hero's, and the Nabaan are growing in dissatisfaction, both because they are pragmatically losing power, and because they feel their own contribution isn't acknowledge. And perhaps they could find allies in kiiths like Sometaaw, the people who have been eating shit from the start.

        Hell, if they really want to keep the whole "gallaxy is in peril" - well, fricking Karan is the one who gains near unlimited power over hyperdrives in HW2. Using hyperspace as a weapon literally EXACTLY FITS her power in HW2, for frick sake. She IS the incarnate queen.
