Long Live the Confederation!
You may have heard of Alien Commander, Warren Spector's pitch which ultimately became the famous System Shock. What you don't know is how delightfully crazy it is: the game is set on the wreckage of the TCS Tiger's Claw and has the player face off against Double Helixes! Below are scans of the two-page pitch which is worth a read.

Not specifically System Shock, but it would have been nice, I think, to have found out more about the Double Helix.
