The Insectoids shall rise again! No, wait, there they go, sinking back into their customary obscurity.
About this creation
In an attempt to counterract a severe economic depression on their home planet, a group of Insectoid investors contracted with The Skunk Works to build "Alien Safari," thus luring the all-important tourist dollar.
Plans for the infrastructure were ambitious. First, a luxury hotel with elevated landing pad(s). Second, a monorail or tram system to carry the tourist group along. And then, diorama after diorama depicting all the strange and wonderful alien wildlife, plantlife, and landscaping.
The Skunk Works founder and CEO Shannon Young looked at how unbelievably much work that was going to be and did what any sane corporate raider would do: he took the Insectoids' money and ran. Alien Safari was dead almost before it was born.
Will the project ever be built? That's for the interplanetary courts to decide. The courts being in the pockets of the huge multi-trillion dollar corporations, don't hold your breath for the poor Insectoids.
The tourist group of eight just barely fits. (Assume they're held in place during flight by a magnetic field or something.) Here we have three humans, one mystery alien, two UFOliens, and two martians crammed into the back.
Everything was to be insect themed, from the hive-shaped hotel to the lander to the centipede-shaped tram. And in realistic colors too, not the garish neons of the official Insectoids of the late nineties. It just got to sounding like WAY too much trouble.
