I drew these pictures a long time ago, since I've always been interested in Space and the Future, so that is in fact the part of the Spore that I'm looking forward to the most.. One of the thoughts I've had since I first saw the possibilities of this game, was: "I wish I could build the ships that I drew.." So here they are.. They're inspired by Starship Troopers, StarWars and other Sci-Fi shows/movies..

This is the USS Gettysburg.. Everything's fine.. It's just departed from the Homeplanet on it's way to explore the galaxy..


This is the USS Antietam, the sistership of the USS Gettysburg.. The last recorded transmission received from the ship was: "Homeplanet, we have a problem.." After that, all contact was lost. The Antietam is believed to have been destroyed by an unknown alien race.

Hmm, maybe recreating the old Mars-ship concept.

Or a lunar lander like on the apollo missions.

Or maybe just a plain Saucer.

Mines going to be kinda s squahed curvy triangle shape, kinda like the strafleet badge in start trek.
But add a bubble on the top, and small verticle fins on either bottom boint of the triangle.

ill post a pic later.

I can see the Starship Troopers inspiration in the drawings - it's basically a more "square" version of the ST ship that Carmen flies (Man she really can't act).

How's it making sound if it's in space? Pray, have you invented a new kind of sound that travels through vacuum?

It's a nice drawring, but I just find something wrong with everything.

Who says the ship was in space when it blew?  ;)

Well, thanks for the compliments everyone! As for the sounds in space.. Well.. Having a drawing (which was actually meant for my own Sci-Fi comic) with a spaceship being blown to smithereens without a single expression of sound or death and destruction would make it kinda dull.. But, just to ease your mind, I am as much of a nitpick as you are though..  ;) I usually find tiny little grammatical errors in other people's work.. Very irritating..  ;D

By the way, what I loved drawing the most was the little stickpuppets that are flying through the Bridge windows of the Antietam going 'AAAAH!' and 'AAAIE!'  :D

And what's her name, Denise Richards, she can't act at all, but hey.. When looking like that, who cares?  :)

I think it looks good! It looks very sleek and fast! I'm pretty sure my battlecruiser will blast it from space the moment we come across it, but it'll give us a good laugh! ;D Nah, that's cruel..

I have NO intentions of doing this, but you KNOW somebody will make a painfully exact replica of the Enterprise, and it's various incarnations.

haha, if I see one enterprise ship flying around space I will hunt that race down, destroying every one of their planets...
;)
Seriously though, movie/tv show based space ships will be common I suppose.
I guess we should get ready to see a ton of star wars ships flying around...  :-\
