Since I started playing in EVE I've noticed that a lot of the ships in-game bare resemblance to quite a few real life vehicles, characers and or every day items we might find around our houses. Here are some of the comparisons I have made.



The Maller's forward hull bares a very odd resemblance to the new model of Cylon Centurian's face plate.

Maller

Cylon

- Evil sideways eye included.

The Crusader/Executioner looks familair to the new model of Cylon Raider.

Executioner] - Cylon Raider


The ORE Rorq looks somewhat like an Earth Alliance Omega Class destroyer.

Rorqual-
Earth Omega

These are all the comparisons I can give at the moment. Feel free to add your own.

You know EVE's 2003 release date predates most of those pics right? That and you can hardly call Battlestar Gallactica "Real Life"

Minnie shuttle is a tie fighter

Minnie battlecruiser is a Star Destroyer

Nothing is new under the sun man. Everyone who creates gets inspiration from somewhere.

Some big ships.

Hurricane = 580 meters long (according to overview)

How big is that?

Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier = 340 meters long

Star Destroyer = 1600 meters long

Big ship. Cool

Iteron, Armageddon, and especially the Thorax.
It seems to be a trend.

In that you (and others) are comparing eve ships to cylons, star wars ships, and other assortedly similar things - I think you're using a vastly different definition of "real life" than I am.

Quality isn't great, but the most accurate one I could find.

Rupture

nail gun

Honestly, who doesn't see the similiarities, before now even.

The Iteron has already reminded me Mr. Hanky. Coincidence, I think so!

I take it that you're a lonely 40 year old something virgin as you have nothing else better to do than come in to the thread and knit-pick.

No. The new Battlestar Galactica is not real life. It is not even real Battlestar Galactica.
