Why did the Space-Spawns kidnap the eggs of the Liberty clan? For what reasons did they want the eggs?
I have a question about the Space-Spawn. Specifically: When did they evolve (or come into existence)? We know that they're much younger, as a species, than the N'Kai species, and that their rapid technological development contrasts with their relatively recent origin, but not whether they're older than gargoyles or humans as a species.
You've revealed that on Earth, the now-extinct "Lost Race" evolved first, then gargoyles, then humans, and finally the Third Race "evolved" last. And you have said that the N'Kai evolved billions of years ago. So the order of origin/age for these species is:
2. "Lost Race" (actual name unrevealed)
5. Oberon's Children
Will you please share where the Space-Spawn fit into that "timeline"? Roughly how old is the species, compared to gargoyles and humans?
Thanks for all you do.
I don't think I want to reveal this at this time. Sorry.
It's me again. If you are planning to continue the saga of Gargoyles, would we be able to see the Space Spawn and see what is going to happen in the future?
This day in Gargoyles' Universe History....
Earth surrenders to the Space-Spawn.
This day in Gargoyles' Universe History....
In Avalon, Angela, Gabriel, Ophelia, Boudicca and thirty-two other gargoyles and gargoyle beasts hatch out of their eggs.
Mace disappears with a fortune in jewels to become a full-time operative for the Illuminati. He writes a letter to Dominic Dracon, taunting him with false clues about the location of the jewels.
From around the globe, human heads of state and all twelve Gargoyle Clan Leaders come to Queen Florence Island for the hatching. The Space-Spawn attacks, abducting the gargoyle eggs and the human and gargoyle leaders, including U.N. Secretary General Alexander Fox Xanatos IV. And in Antarctica, Earth's Master Matrix Computer is stolen. The Space-Spawn invasion has begun.
1. Are the Spacespawn a single race or an alliance of different species? (Like the Galatic Alliance in Lilo and Stitch)
2. When Nokar uses the term Spacespawn it sounds more like a curse word then the actual name of the species. My question is: Are the Spacespawn actually named Spacespawn? (Just curious, so I thought that I would ask)
1. The Space-Spawn are a single race, which is not to say that they haven't made "alliances".
2. To him it is a curse word, but that's their name for now.
Will Samson search for his allies (Demona, Macbeth, Noka, etc.) or will they come to him?
a)Will his biological siblings join the fight?
b)Or gargoyles from Avalon?
You wrote that there are actually many races fighting against the Space Spawn, are they losing(or simply have problems), because the Space Spawn.
a)is the physically superior race in the war compared with the other races like most gargoyles are to humans?
b)has the better technology? (like the Vorlons and Shadows in B5 to the other races)
c)increases faster in number and thus a bigger population overall? (Like the Invid in Robotech)
d)are masters of war? (Like the Klingons in TNG who are just good at it)
e)are simple crueller and without mercy? (Like theYuuzhan Vong in the Expanded Star Wars Universe)
What are the goals of the Space Spawn? I mean okay the want to win the war, but what want they do if they win?
a)Kill all other races?(Like the Yuuzhan Vong)
b)Making them to slaves like the Centauri from B5 to the Narn and the Cardassians from Ds9 to the Bajorans?
c)Making them to dependent colonies(under direct or indirect controle) like the Dominion from DS9?
a)Are there still governments on earth?
If yes are they:
a)Relative indipendent if they don't oppose the Space Spawn's rule.
b)Directly controled by the Space Spawn(by a representative perhaps)?
1. Some of each.
2a. One way or another.
2b. One way or another.
3. They're winning. That's all I'm in the mood to reveal.
4. Mostly to expand territory.
5abc. Think Vichy.
1.If they are adversaries then which one of the space-spawn gods are stronger or are both equal in strength?
2.Are both gods worshipped by the space-spawn?
Is one more popular than another or are they equally popular?
3.What are they gods of? Do they represent some concept?
With the comic coming out, I'm choosing not to answer these at this time. I'd rather not scoop myself down the line.
Okay out of curiosity are the Space-Spawn solid flesh and blood like gargoyles, humans and the yetis from your Roswell Conspiracy thing or are they like energy or a mixture of energy and flesh like the children of Oberon or the Sidhe from the Roswell Conspiracy Show or are they something else entirely?
Given the way you've phrased things, you're sort of forcing me to choose (c). But had you phrased it differently...
Some of it came from a natural bio-chemical affinity for certain types of technology. They were literally born (forged) to travel in space, for example.
Much of it came from the spoils of war and an efficient and frightening ability to mobilize a war industry to back their war machine.
Good question, though.

On the question of Space-Spawn technology what exactly do you mean by "biochemical affinity"?
It has to do with their biology, their anatomy. But I'm not gonna go into details at this time.
1.Are most of the worlds conquered by the Space-Spawn pre-interstellar flight worlds like Earth? Or are they a variety made up of pre-interstellar flight worlds and worlds with interstellar flight?
2.How many races aside from the ones native to Earth do the Space-Spawn control? Do they control any N'Kai or former N'Kai worlds? Are there any N'kai willingly allied with the Space-Spawn?
1. A mix.
2. I'm not delving into this at this time.
1.Are the space-spawn better warriors than the N'Kai or the other race involved? If so why? Are they just physically stronger or do they just have good morale and are fanatical about it?
I decline to go into details about this now.
Are the space-spawn planetkillers large?
They haven't been designed.
How large is the N'kai fleet? The space-spawn fleet?
Both are large enough. (Did you really expect me to have hard numbers?)
1.You have said that there are less than 20 races involved in the war and that life bearing planets are few, but can give birth to many races so does this mean that this war is being fought by a handful or two of planets?
Dude, I have reread your question three times and I still don't know what you're asking. But I'll take a shot ...
Prior to humanity and the gargoyles getting involved in the conflict with the Space-Spawn, there are three main races involved in the overall war: the Space-Spawn, the N'kai and another race that I haven't told you guys much about.
There may be a few other races out there, but as I think you noted, I don't plan on making the Gargoyles Universe resemble the tavern scene from Star Wars.
1.Of the races in the galaxy are any of them as long lived as Nokkar?
2.How long can one member live? Any one of them older than human civilization?
1. As the N'kai, you mean? At any rate, I haven't defined the lifespan of individual space-spawn yet. They may also be very long-lived. I haven't decided. Otherwise, no.
3. One member of what? And how are you defining "civilization"?
About the Space-Spawn were they suppose to be an organic race or energy based like the Children of Oberon considering that they were born from a super nova?
Why are the space-spawn winning the war when the N'kai are older?
What kind of government do the N'kai have? A Democracy? A dictatorship?
What about the space-spawn and this third race?
The closest Earth-equivalent to the Space-Spawn's government is a militocracy.
I'm intentionally not revealing anything about the N'kai or the other alien race.
How many major powers are there in the galaxy? Are the space-spawn, N'kai and this third race considered major powers in the galaxy?
2) Yes. (Keep in mind that the third alien race should not be confused with "The Third Race" a.k.a. Oberon's Children.)
What is the lifespan of a member of the space-spawn race?
Does it vary? If so could you tell us the general average?
If you can't tell us that then is it less when compared to a gargoyle? How about when it's compared to that of a human?
I haven't made a decision on this point yet.
What is the religion of the Space-Spawn?
I'm not getting in to this at this time.
More Space-Spawn questions for you…
1) What kind of anatomy do you see the Space-Spawn having, considering they were "born amidst the fury of an exploding star" I doubt they would be humanoid? Now I know you don't do character designs for very good reasons but I just wanted to know if you had any ideas on this subject.
2) How do the Space-Spawn communicate with each other, vocal chords being useless in the vacuum of space since there's no sound?
3) Would a Space-Spawn be able to survive in earth's atmosphere unaided by technology or magic?
4) Lastly, could you please give us just one part of the reason why the Space-Spawn war started? Some teaser? Some little opener? Some hint? Something?
1. I have very specific ideas, but as you mentioned, I'm not an artist, and I don't feel like tieing the hands of whatever future artist winds up (hopefully) designing the characters.
2. See above.
4. The Space-Spawn started building their empire without asking for volunteers.
First Greg let me say how honoured I am to by the first poster in the new Space-Spawn category. One of the reasons I'm so fixated with the Space-Spawn is that the more I learn about them the more questions I have. A perfect example of this is the revelation that the Space-Spawn have two gods. As soon as I heard this dozens of questions started popping in my head. The key one being would the Space-Spawn gods be subject to your 'all things are true' policy? If so then the implications are mind boggling, I mean you said alien magic would be a sophisticated concept but alien gods that's really something. Now on with the questions…
1) Do the Space-Spawn gods actually exist?
2) If so did they come into existence before or after the Space-Spawn themselves?
3) What's their opinion of the war?
4) What's their opinion of each other?
5) If you decide to use them, do you predict any S&P problems? I mean Anubis and Odin are okay cause they are real mythological figures (hey I made an oxymoron!) and you can claim educational value but I doubt the folks who accuse Gargoyles of promoting devil-worship will take too kindly to the Space-Spawn gods.
1. I'm not saying at this time.
2. The legends say before. That's all I will say now.
3. I'm not granting the premise of the question, though I'm not disputing it either.
4. In the legends, they are adversaries.
5. I don't understand why I would have any S&P problems creating two fictional gods for a fictional alien race. (You do know that the Space-Spawn are fictional, right?)
I meant "religion" not "religio". (I am such an idiot).
I got that. But thanks for attempting to correct. It is appreciated.
