The True History of the Cylons

Posted by Shannon

Probert’s thirty-year career has been wide and varied, although his greatest claim to fame stems from serving as Senior Illustrator for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Do you get goosebumps when you see the Enterprise-D or feel your pulse rush at the sight of the updated Romulan Warbird? Thank this guy.

But before giving Starlfeet a facelift was even a twinkle in Andrew’s eye, he was hard at work whipping the Cylons into shape.

Cargo Lifters <--> AT-ATs

Posted by Shannon

So, it turns out that the AT-ATs in The Empire Strikes Back were inspired by the cargo lifters container cranes in the Port of Oakland. I see those things every day from the BART, and I’ve always thought they look like AT-ATs. And that they look awesome. Makes sense, I guess.
