Are you tired of Spore yet? That publicity campaign was hard on all of us -- but it turns out that the amazing Sporepedia is actually fairly amazing. Case in point -- there are Kilrathi everywhere! Some 326 at the time of this writing which you can study here. They range from truly outstanding to truly what-the-heck-is-thatish. Some samples:
Protip: To see even more Kilrathi, just search for 'Kzin'...
This is the eighth set of Feng Zhu "concept" ships, commissioned for an unspecified Wing Commander title following the release of Secret Ops. What we have here is one tough little image that didn't fit anywhere else -- it's not a blueprint, it's not a categorized concept sketch... it's just: something. In fact, that's all we can say, since it isn't labeled, either. More Confederation fighters? Multi-roles? Another elaborate freighter cargo storage system?
A personal note: when I visited Origin back in October, 1998 these Feng Zhu pieces were arranged in a huge grid on a wall. Mike "Boomer" McCoy proudly showed them to me, but barred me from taking any pictures (not that my protoplasmic digital camera would have resolved enough detail in the first place...). He said that his favorite was of a medical ship designed for Wing Commander Online -- if it exists, we haven't seen it yet! Still, it's absolutely amazing that this artwork which I assumed lost forever, could appear once again.
Thanks to Captain Johnny for both archiving and providing this material!
