If you are like me, your eyeballs still hurt from looking at the Buccaneer, and you hoped that it would be the worst they had seen for the rest their lives.
Unfortunately it looks like Drake Interplanetary isn't done pushing the boundaries of bad taste. Just recently they did unveil their newest abomination to the public market - The Drake Kraken.
From the looks of it Drake got a discount on some decommissioned space stations and a Hull D filled to bursting with duct tape and then went to work taping some landing pads to second hand caterpillars.
But lets be honest, Drakes hallmark is that it makes the most utilitarian ships in the 'Verse. And as long as your understanding of utilitarian is the absence of escape pods and that some mad man with a wilding tool went nuts trying to fit as many oddly shaped surfaces on your ship as humanly possible - then yes drake probably succeeds with this goal.
A tasteful Kraken?
Now, taking a step back and ignoring the aesthetics or rather lack thereof, of the Kraken the ship is not completely unless. If you are not worried about spending some extra cash on aftermarket work there is a use for this ship!
To see just how useful a Kraken could become under the right command the Monocle Times has partnered up with some other enthusiasts to find.
I'll ignore the changes to the interior and jump straight into what matters - making a better use of those nonsensical landing pads.
Now look at this! Finally something that doesn't want you to make claw your eyes out.
So let's talk about this. And it's going to be exciting.
First of all we replaced all four small landing pads with swimming pools. Given they have some issues. Without air, the pools do require a space suite enjoy it, on the bright side dryingoff will be easy! Just be careful not to touch the floor of the pools as the heating required to keep the water at temperature can melt some materials.
Second and more important the large landing pads have been replaced with something much more useful! A golf course to spend time away form all the troubles of the universe. It almost makes you forget how ugly the ship you're standing off is and in many cases prevent you from trowing up in your helmet. But be warned due to Drakes flimsy build quality, a badly placed ball could lead to catastrophic integrity failure on the vessel.
