I searched Wikipedia for Thargoids and, finding nothing, was terribly disappointed. So, I decided to make up for this loss by writing about them here.

Thargoids were the evil trapezoid buggers from Elite who usually spanked you at every encounter. More annoyingly, newer versions of the game had them coloured pink, just to drive home that you were being creamed by particularly effeminate aliens. Clearly the Thargoids have serious problems, but I'm particularly concerned with the relationship between Thargoids and their Tharglet friends. To sort this, I have now founded the Committee for Understanding the Nature of Thargoids You Might Inspect Near Tharglet Starships. Drop me an email to join.
