PIRATE CLASS AUTOMATED BOUNTY SEEKING DRONE PC-782 by 


also available as a sticker:

alternate version:

300 years after the “great space race” of the late 20th Century, pirates have started turning the old space junk dumped in the Nebula-9 region into automated bounty seeking drones. This is for two very good reasons; 1) pirates are actually very lazy, so if they don’t need to do the work themselves why would they? Science Fiction writers in particular were very disappointed by this fact. . and 2) it turns out that electronic equipment floating freely in space does not age. Hundreds of years later it’s still as good (or as bad) as when you left it there. The oxygen-free environment means that no corrosion occurs. This also means that the drones tend to keep on working until they are hit by a comet (or another drone).

    Yes it is good my young man……..

  • thanks very much. the rocket was a fairly quick basic doodle. the curved text was a lot more painful and took a while.

    That text couldn’t have been easy…cool design brother

  • text onto a curved path is not too hard, but I still haven’t figured out how to do more than half way around, so this one had to be done in two parts with one half rotated 180 degrees to make the flip side. Thanks for the comment. :)

    Very nice work! I wonder how much junk is actually up there…?

  • thanks Ross. The Nebula-9 region is a massive cloud of space dust, so nobody really know quite what, or how much, is up there. I guess this is precisely what made it so attractive as a dumping ground.
