I don't think that they whould split up, and if yes, what for? Also that plot is kinda cheap. That activity is far more typical to humans.
Also note that the aliens left at the end of the game.
WAAAAA!!! WHO ASKED YA ANYWAYS!!!
Heh, it was just a half baked story that i made up in like 1 min anyways. Just to try to add some flair to the forums thats all.
I appreciate your constructive critizism tho! Heh.
However, following your logic as stated above, I disagree on a few things.
The aliens do show some human qualities. After all they did blow up their home planet because of wanting to control a power that was above there ablity to control. Sounds pretty human to me.
Much like whats was goin to happen at the end of the game to us humans.
Most wars are started and ended between humans because of power stuggles.
They did say they wanted to be like "GODS" Wanted to have some degree of control over lesser beings.
If not by just sharing there new found energy source, and labeling it as there discovery.
And they tryed to stop us humans from making the same mistake they made with Military force because some humans did not listen to there warnings and chose to be independant. Sounds familar? USA and Iran for example.......Sad but true. But thats another topic worth debating.
I was lead to believe that they have a collective consciousness. Not a single one. The is a difference. Central Consciousness means they all think the same. There all "ONE"
Collective consciousness means that there are a variety of consciousnesses
imbodied at a single point. All of the consciousnesses maybe thinking the same thing, or not. We wouldnt know because most humans are not telepathic.
It would seem logical to me that if they had a Central Consciousness, then there would be just one alien there. One body full of consciousnesses, instead of the Many aliens that were in that final Room. All of which had a seperate capsole, with a seperate body.
They were also many other ships sent to different parts of the Universe. Probaby reacting to the energy crisis in a manner Unique to the circumstance. If they had a Central Mind, then they would be taking Miltary action to other besides just us humans.
This is not a very smart thing to do. And could lead to the overthrown of the Aliens, by other aliens, through sheer numbers of disagreeing Lifeforms.
So there is no certainty here about this. Just speculation.
So all in all, its not too unrealistic and untrue to the original plot, that some of the aliens might have different fews on how to handle/live with humans.
Judging by how most of there actions, are so simliar to what we humans would do, if we had the same mental capacity.
Does any of this make sense?
Trying to make sense of speculations isnt easy.
Thats my 2 cents!
