Anybody got any pics. of a voxyn? Jasca Ducato 08:19, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Added a picEdit

The pic I added is from an NJO japanese bookcover. Unsigned comment by Jed-eye (talk • contribs).


Uhm this is a little to strong. I don't think hundreds of body threatening viruses could co-exist in just a slime layer. Nor Can scales be as hard as durasteel without being insanely thick. Unsigned comment by Lord Sariel (talk • contribs).

  • First a the Voxyn are carriers meaning their imune to the virus them selvessuch as snakes and lizards even monkeys for example can carry hundreds of virus without being effected, also Virus's only affect cells and as such do not attack other viruses.
    • Secondly That's not so if the scales contained metals or crystals such as Durasteel, Phrik and even Diamonds or lightsaber crystals they could be insanely strong much like crocodile skin/scales are so strong because it contains iron so small arms don't work (well), yet crocodile skin is only a few millimeters thick. -- "Awar 05:59, 25 October 2007 (UTC)".

This is ridiculous. He who created this needs a reality check and a bonk on the head. I hate how they decide to create this insanely superpowered monster beastie just so they have an 'oh crap, our favorite jettise are in trouble' moment. I think that Star Wars has generally done a good job of following real biology, but this one just blows that out of the water. This creature could never exist, not even if you got some insane crazy bio-genetisist to patch it toghether. Are we supposed to run around screaming because something evil and impossible to kill is coming? Please. If you want someone to destroy beasts of this crazy caliber, call Master Chief. Don't make the Jedi stick their head in this lions mouth.--"FullmetalWookiee 03:07, 10 April 2008 (UTC)"

  • I'm inclined to agree with you. It's like Mary Sue-ing a beast. The movies have shown us that normal critters can give Jedi a good challenge, so why didn't they stick with that formula? Just 'cause you mastered the Force doesn't mean you're immune to having your arm bitten off. All that amounts to is that you have a better chance of defending yourself than the regular non-Jedi schmoes out there. Even the most-expirienced animal wranglers get maimed. The same would hold true for Jedi. So, such an improbable freak of science wouldn't be needed and is utterly ludicrous.
But, the author wanted to write up some freak, and what the author wants, the author gets. Doesn't mean we hafta like it, though. Things like this throw a wrench into the works of all my xenobiology theories. There... must... be... LOGIC! Trak Nar 03:17, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm glad that someone else thinks so. Look at the acklay. It nearly ate Obi-Wan and it didn't have any evil 'retrovirus slime' or 'durastell hard scales' and it wasn't able to 'hide in the Force.' That right there, *points at Mary-Sueish abilities* is called, well, Mary-Sueing. Hasn't the author every roleplayed in his life?FullmetalWookiee 03:21, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
    • Prolly not. Perhaps the author's just not an obsessive nerd and just wanted to write the ultimate beastie to go with the wacky Yuuzhan Vong with little regard to what's plausible and what's utterly ridiculous. I mean D'harhan is a guy with a cannon for a head. Yet, I can accept his plausibility more than I can this Voxyn creature. Trak Nar 03:27, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
      • D'harhan is easier to belive because he can't spew acid. Only blaster bolts. ^^ The Yuuzhan Vong by themselves border on Mary Sue in abilities and sadism. Then their beasts... well, I can believe some, because you see parallels in biology to things like the Thrall. There's funguses that can do similar things. And the author, in my opinion, wasn't just a nerd. He or she probably had some sort of inferiority complex that he/she made up for by writing out monsters that killed a bazillion Jedi. But then the whole Yuuzhan Vong war has been completely OVERDONE. "FullmetalWookiee 03:33, 10 April 2008 (UTC)"
        • Definetly. Granted, the Yuuzhan Vong are interesting with their biotechnology... but they were just a lil too powerfull. That and they seemingly created stuff in a very, very short amount of time. While there was growth-acceleration used with the creation of the clone troopers, it was used in a plausible way. The length of time was still acceptable as they were given the growth rate of dogs or cats. The Yuuzhan Vong, however, seem to have just made stuff appear within days or weeks, mebbe months. That's a lil too accelerated. I could be wrong, I haven't really followed the Vong War very closely as it really didn't interest me much. Though, it just seems that they're doing all this in a very short amount of time. I can't wrap my head around it. It's just not plausible. Trak Nar 04:02, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
          • I gave up on the New jedi Order a long time ago. It didn't make sense then, and it still doesn't make sense. It's not plausible, it's at least semi, if not compeletely impossible, and everyone's Mary Sue-ing like it's the end of the world. Jacen Solo as a being of light... come one. It's like they took a series of books and decided to make it a contest of who could make it more and more redonk. And the voxyn win second prize, with terraforming entire planets in a matter of weeks at first. "FullmetalWookiee 04:06, 10 April 2008 (UTC)"
            • Wait... A matter of weeks?! Okay, that's... That's just ridiculous. I don't care what galaxy this is, there must be at least some logic behind things. Suspension of disbeleif only goes so far. Trak Nar 04:14, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I belive that that was the usual timeframe for these things. However, I might be off by a few days. However you pu it, it's redonk. "FullmetalWookiee 00:03, 11 April 2008 (UTC)"

voxyn Edit

these things are awesome.

  • Cool? Yes. Overkill? Also yes. They where a hybrid of Vornskr and Freo Xyn. It was hard to make them but the attempt was successful. The shaper responsible did not die at Myrkr. So my question is this: Why not simply create another after the death of the queen? Or is this just cognitive bias on my part? Deadwook 21:20, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Appearances? Edit

Weren't there voxyn in Star Wars: Legacy?WIERDGREENMAN 17:23, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
