Spaceships That Became Other Spaceships

So how did a Corellian Corvette become the Millennium Falcon? Graphic and visual effects artist Gavin Rothery has been chronicling how ships across our favorite SF films and shows like Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars inspire the design of each other. His first installment (and our favorite) visualizes how the Corvette in the beginning of Star Wars eventually became the Millennium Falcon we know and love today.

Check out installments two and three, which deal with other ships. There’s also a lot of great stuff to look through in regards to his work on Moon and the upcoming Prometheus.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of and used to look like Seaquest DSV before it grew up and started dressing itself better.
