    Well, then how did you read the translator messages in U1? Oh, wait. You DIDN'T. Had you done so, you'd notice they're called "Sky Demons" "Demons from the Stars" and jazz like that. You didn't even finish Unreal at all -- had you done so, you'd notice that the last levelset is a huge alien (Skaarj) ship that's stuck in there...

    Well, I think Skaarj had their homeworld, planet Skraath in ancient times. But they haven't got it now, it became uninhabitable because of the skaarj-mercenary wars. Skaarj conquered the mercenary homeworld, but their enemies were an advanced race then, and from space bases they massed a great fleet and stroke back hard. In a sudden and unwaited attack, mercenary capital ships jumped out from hyperspace and started bombing the surface with tarydium-based nuclear weapons. Billions of skaarj and the Great Council of the Thirty Old Queens died (I try to imagine their society similar to dark elves' in Menzoberranzan: clans founded by strong queens fighting constantly with each other, but against external enemies, they cooperate effectively most times), and a nuclear winter came, conditions that are too harsh even for this highly accomodable race. Now Skraath is a penalty colony for their most dangerous criminals: first of all, rebels.

    It was a suicide mission: the skaarj space defence finally eliminated the mercenaries, forcing them to became the nomads, pirates and unreliable salesmen of the Galaxy. Losing Skraath wasn't a fatal loss for skaarj anyway (despite demoralized them a bit), as they still dominate hundreds of planetary systems.

    The scare have conquered many many worlds, seeing how huge a galaxy is. They've used bits and pieces from all of these planets and build their own.
