During this period the Umgah abandoned their practice of painting their ships the same color as the Ur-Quanís, having found a much funnier prospect in impersonating their enemies, the Humans. The Umgah went to great lengths to disguise their Drones as Earthling Cruisers, even to the point of hacking into Star Controlís databases and altering records to include their fake ID signals. Only when Alliance ships were within range of vision, and the Dronesí anti-matter cones, was the punch line revealed.
Going forward slowly is pretty funny in and of itself, but going backward quickly? A laff riot! The Umgah equip their Drones with an anti-matter cone to add that oh so piquant touch of tragedy to their comedy. Or is it merely pie in the face?
