Herman Rosy Du Preez recently came across an object and did a double-take. From the right angle, a stray head massaging device can bear an uncanny resemblance to the Nephilim Tiamat dreadnought or dry dock structure. I certainly see the family resemblance! Who knows what really inspired visual futurist Syd Mead?
I just realized.... Nephilim dreadnought looks like a head massager. Inspiration can come from ANYWHERE!
