Dunno, but none of the races, except the shadows, seem to have paint jobs that are stealthy in the big black, with the EA coming a close second.

I just like the looks of the Warlock. Although I do like the Omega too! I've always liked the way the EA ships are for the most part a shade off of Battleship grey. I think that makes them stand out. Although the other races must think EA is really boring with it's color scheme.

Who ever said it was for camouflage purposes?

The Narn's paint scheme remind of those frogs or lizards that have those bright patterns to ward off predators. And they usually have some sort of poisonous secretion on there skin...

What?! She really is licking a G'Quan! Ok she really isn't. I did photoshop it in. Before she was actually licking my.... PSP....ok, it wasn't my PSP.

Truth be told, her name is Jessica Chobot. She is basically known for this picture- but with a PSP. She currently works at IGN.com. A hottie and a geek... a lethal combination.

In "Legend of the Rangers" one Minbari complain, that the humans have no sense for colors, after he sees the new Valen Class Vessel, which where build by Humans and Minbari.

I think the sentence was like this :
"If humans build a ship they discard all colors but gray, blue and green."

Can we get a picture of this?
Once they're finished. They still need touch ups and a clear coat.
They get a Stealth 4 when played on a tan colored Surface. w00t.
The Minbari think they're superior. that because they've been touched by Vorlons, they've the right to interfere in our affairs!
Today we tell them the Lion of the Galaxy is not dead, and shall tear them apart if they oppose us!

I like the Warlock the most.

Not only does the forward facing weaponry kick ass, It also has the Advanced Jump point trait wich makes it even sweeter. (It allows you to use all of the forward facing weapons before you get grinded to spacedust.) I also find it the best protected EA vessel.
