How or where do you get the Dark Star?
Once you've researched Shadow Chasing, research your Codex again.

It's somewhat counterintuitive that spaceworthy vessels can't reach a space freighter (until after you get the prompt). Prepped a Prospector full of gals to take on one, am disappoint :c
You need to have at least 3000 speed to catch up to it. You think it's just gonna wait for you? ;)

what ist *Zubrin ? ?
The Zubrin is the "low" tech Mars assault vessel.

cwould be able to go also to Cydonia, Mars..
(and has got Armor at least 15, not only 6, as now..
Dragon shouldn't be able to go to Cydonia as that's reserved for special crafts. Also, the armor's fine from my point of view - they are not meant to solo a Battleship.

Kraken can't catch Space Freighters if I remember correctly. The Dragon, however, can. You'll still need something else for Air Races, though. A Codex craft with STC speed upgrades (either Fusion or Ethyr Drives) does nicely for that.

I got a Goblin Zaxx Mission on a sirius temple. Got it done (Everyone stunned), but gained no trophy.
The Old Coins can be turned into tokens.

What's the point of Expeditions?
Free research and the associated (rather small) infamy boost from it.

Rest (metallo, kraken and dragon) are too slow to reliably catch most targets.
Dragon can reliably catch almost any craft (Sentry on a Crackdown mission and Hotrod are the only exceptions).

whats are J3, Jx, and "MT"
and "PSoL"
From the context it's:

Jx = Game version (0.99J8)
MT = Mysterious Tower mission
PSoL = Pink Ship of Love vessel

I will try to find how I can get rid of the stun damage then. must be somewhere in the files I guess.
Replace STR_MOONSHINE in Piratez.rul with (or make a patch file):

    costSell: 100
    weight: 5
    bigSprite: 975

Chryssalid + human = uber? (chryssalids are fast strong and containhellerium in their bodies, unlike other aliens)
Chryssalid + human = Chryssalid + Chryssalid + dead human. Mating with them is lethal - a few minutes later a fresh one pops out of your body.
As others have said, Ubers are more-or-less random mutations.

If you really want to look for possible proto-ubers, then the Luchadores from The X-Com Files are a potential candidate (we've briefly discussed it with Dioxine once). They are a subculture/sect of people who eat zombie flesh and can somewhat metabolize its high energy content, though it's not a pretty process and tends to make them cuckoo (though they certainly weren't very sane in the first place, they eat zombies).
Sounds like that's where the Cannies came from.

When I look at my hits using ctrl-h to chech for damage does damage to shields not count because I'm just getting 0's
Yes, damage to shields is displayed as zero in the hit log.

I've gotten all of those, so obviously the caster exists in the game somewhere.
Well, I've gotten Plasma Blunderbuss and Light Plasma Gun because I've continued playing from an earlier version. Is it the same for you or did you start fresh with 99J7?

Well that would prevent one form breaking into plasma weapons wouldn’t it? I am fairly sure the plasma blunderbuss depends on plasma caster.
It does, but Plasma Weapons doesn't depend on Plasma Blunderbuss. They depend on Broken Academy Provost, Arcane Interface, and Magischen-Motors.

Plasma Caster locks:
Plasma Blunderbuss
  Light Plasma Gun
  Armor Piercing Lasers
    X-Plasma Weapons

Is it possible to obtain Plasma Caster in .99j7? I don't see any mentions in Piratez_Factions.rul
I think the followingweapons are currently unavailable, but I could be mistaken:

Sonic Cannon
Marsec Mega-Cannon
Marsec Multilaser
Marsec Mega-Flamer
Homing RPG
Plasma Caster
Plasma Eliminator

Was . . . was TROLLIUM ever meant to be researched? I've only found one way to get it so far, and, well . . . it requires something that is technically "cheating".
It was not. Changes in OXCE (if a required tech does not exist, it is not considered a requirement) mean that it becomes available, though.

Am I missing something?
Stun recovery is based on current health. If you can, rough 'em up a bit before sending them to sleep.
