Two pieces of old news but both worth mentioning on the main page. Firstly Gholsbane <> in a Story forum post noted an excellent piece of Marathon inspired artwork by the artist John Wallin Liberto. You can see it here. The piece is very similar to the work of Craig Mullins and was probably influenced by it. You can check the rest of John Wallin Liberto's work here.

For more of Craig's artwork check the following sites:

Spotted just before Christmas is this piece from about a screenshot from the upcoming LucasArts game RTX Red Rock. Note the upside-down Marathon symbol on the chest of the bespectacled character.

What's in a Name? If you are up to the challenge poena.dare #CP# in a Story forum post wants you to come up with a name for the Tau Ceti colony. The colony itself not the planet obviously. He claims that the name he came up with is logical, at least to him. Any idea what it could be?

Quick update

Wow we haven't had a Quick Update in a long time. Alfred Mordeir <> writes concerning a Marathon-like symbol spotted in the 1970's movie "The Dunwich Horror" based on a book by H. P. Lovecraft:

These are Pics that were sent to me by Gherri7White. On them are screen shots from the 1970 movie "The Dunwich Horror," featuring shots of Dean stockwell's hand with two rings, One of which is a dead ringer for a marathon symbol.

You can see the pics here, here, and here. See also the Story forum here and here for some discussion.

And it's in the last spot you would expect...Pokemon! Taking a look at the preview for Pokemon Advance, I came upon this picture...

Look at the guy's head. Perhaps the Unified Earth Space Council has dropped the Mjolnir in favor of...Pikachu?

I was just surfing the Starwars Website when I saw an ad for a Lucas Arts game that contains something "oddly familiar". The game is called RTX Redrock and the main character has a synthetic eye that looks a lot like the BOB's ocular implant in M2. Here is the RTX Redrock website: Here is Craig Mullins great picture of the BOBs:
