Cloned from a Mutual Zygote #5: The Draconia/Ferengi Marauder

    So, that's why the shape of the Ferengi ship seemed so familiar! The Draconian flagship from Buck Rogers was one of the most impressive models to ever appear on a tv show. The level of detail is incredible. It even has little domes like that on Russian Orthodox churches. It's far grander than the similar Ferengi ship.

    The insectoid design with 'ant' mandibles so impressed me as a kid, that I drew many similar spaceships with mandibles. Of course, it's not the only great spaceship design inspired by insects. The Eagle from Space:1999 is the most famous (and best).

    I remember the first time I saw the Ferengi ship, and I was shocked at how similar it looks to the Draconia. It's like a streamlined, simplified version, with the pincers, and the sloped back, and the long middle-neck portion.

    And, of course, Eagles are the most awesome spaceships ever, I agree...
