Tensions Mount by zarla Tensions Mount by zarla
A sneak peek into the amazing interworkings of an Ur-Quan Dreadnought, right before that Umgah met its untimely demise. IT REGRETS NOTHING.

YOU ARE AMAZED AT MY BACKGROUND AREN'T YOU actually I had no idea what the inside of a Dreadnought would look like, and I am bad at machinery as you can see by the ridiculous panels everyone is working at so I didn't even try to fake it. GRADIENTS FOR YOU.

STARCON2 IS LIKE THE BEST GAME EVER AND I LOVE IT SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH AND YOU SHOULD PLAY IT RIGHT NOW - [link]


Originally a pencil sketch, inked/colored digitally.

The Ur-Quan Kzer-Za, the Umgah, the Spathi, the Ilwrath, and the VUX are (c) Star Control II

I've favorited this, but haven't left a comment?  I'll have to fix that now!

Yes, there's no background, but that's hardly the point of the picture.  It does, however, illustrate why the Ur-Quan prefer to work alone.  This picture stands the test of time, good job. :)

I like how you remembered that Ur-Quan ships are primarily crewed by battle thralls with only one actual Ur-Quan per ship.

About what the inside of a dreadnought would look like, it's been close to 20 years since I read the SC2 manual, but the passage describing the Ur-Quan ship gave me the image of something scarier. I'm imagining it something like a Charles Dickens Victorian mill with a monstrous Ur-Quan looming over its various slaves.

Either way, props for SC2 fan-art. :)

Don't do it Umgah! D:

You know, now that I really examine this piece, it's great how accurately you did all the aliens. The Ur-Quan's holding his rod thingy, and looks really annoyed, the Spathi's terrified, the Umgah, just having fun (not for long), and the VUX has a look of total disgust, likely at all the other races around him.

Far better than I ever thought when I faved it.

oh, and it's quite accurate that the Ur-Quan has none of its brethren on board helping it. It's really amazing how territorial those creatures are. 1 per Dreadnought or Marauder, the rest are enslaved races or robots. I'd guess on a Marauder, they're all robots.

Needs more SNES-type controls.

Also, the VUX looks too short, and the Umgah probably needs a few more tentacles (unless it lost them in an "unfortunate accident", HAR HAR HAR.)

The Spathi as always baffle the hell out of me.

I absolutely love the expressions here. VERY fitting to the races involved. I LOVE the Spathi (SURPRISE AND TERROR!!!), but the 'Quan and VUX are also EXCEPTIONALLY awesome. xD

Gotta love Star Control 2. Oh yes. ^_^

Awesome! Star Control II does indeed rock my socks! I checked that link in the comment and saw a lot of text! You do know the game is freeware/open-source now, right? You can save yourself a lot of time just by downloading it here. The game has to go by the name The Ur-Quan Masters, though, because the creators don't have the copyrights for the Star Control name. But it's pretty much the exact same game.

Plus it has voice-overs and remixed music. Both of which are optional, by the way.

I can just hear them thinking:

Spathi: OMG OMG OMG don't kill me
Umgah: Man, I even crack MYSELF up!
Ilwrath: I wonder what that VUX would do if I just popped that big ol' eyeball?
VUX: This working with other races is SO demeaning. Ugly bastards.
