When you think of the dreaded Urquan - what comes to mind? Some sort of giant squid? Or maybe some type of beetle with claws? A reptile, maybe?
I just came across my old, original Star Control II book from '92. And as I was reliving memories and leafing through the pages... I came across the description of the Urquan:
"Physically, Ur-Quan resemble the predatory CATERPILLAR native to Earth's Hawaiian Islands, only grown to over 10 meters in length"?!?!
WHAT?! Did anyone here picture the Ur-Quan as 30' long caterpillars???
There's what an Ur-Quan looks like, folks. And be honest: is that at All what everyone imagined (if you never read the description in the book)??? A long snake body? A 30' caterpillar?
