Curious about pictures

Post by Old Man Johnson » Sat Feb 19, 2005 3:26 am

Rhetorical questions:

Why does "The General" have no arms...?

Why is the picture for Critical Mass a "Fear" when it ships really sucks?
(Actually, it's one of the coolest-looking ships, though...)

Just guessing but ..

The General has no arms because it's in the style of a bust.

The critical mass picture is of a Fear as you said because it looks good (and is recognisable to somone who hasn't played CM as a ship) despite not being all that hot.

I always liked the fear, I often use it as my early ship. That turning radius rocks!
Firefight... Those were the days.....

The General has arms, they're just tucked behind his back. The things on his shoulders are his epaulets. It's a traditional French uniform, about late 17th century if I remember rightly.

(Most likely I'm completely off; I'm surprised I even remembered how to spell "epaulets".)

Well, I know those are epaulets, but it just appears like he has no arms. Wouldn't you normally be able to see his shoulders?

And, uh, I appreciate your answers, but it is (well, was) a rhetorical question...

Why would you post a rhetorical question?

New thought; it looks like the General is stretching his arms out towards you, zombie-style.
