    The classic Confederation star should be familiar to everyone... but this Kilrathi logo is a bit more unusual. As far as I can tell it has only ever appeared in Origin's Official Guide to Wing Commander Prophecy!

    Undoubtedly, the Confed star was used as the background in the ICIS manual, but the other time I've seen that obscure Kilrathi logo is nearly three years ago.

    Would we interpret this as a symbol of the Kilrathi Empire following the war, then?

    I always thought the logo was a representation of the assembled clans, with each glyph representing a single major clan - makes sense that it changed after the imperial family were killed when Kilrah went up. Weird though, WCPedia lists the Assembly of Clans as being post Kilrah-destruction, but I'm sure I read that definition in Claw Marks (which technically was printed before in game continuity yes?). Though I usually defer to the wisdom of WCPedia, can't help but think this might be an oversight...

    I don't know--I believe it appears next to the story of first contact between Confed and the Kilrathi in the guide.

    I think the Prophecy material is the only place the Assembly of Clans is mentioned. IIRC, Claw Marks actually predates the idea of Kilrathi having clans at all... it wasn't until Super Wing Commander that they went back and added clan names for the various aces (I remember being SO excited when we learned those!)

    Yes! Which explains why I mirrored it in my SVG (I'd forgotten about that little detail).
