Type: Destroyer
Description:
A scout ship managed to get within sensor range of a huge insectoid and made a detailed analysis of the beast above: -A huge beast, close to the size of a cruiser just appeared in the sensors. A preliminary scan reveals that it has an extremely robust armour network, and judging for the size of the wings, it has a good mobility. The huge horns also mark a great threat, close combat is not recommended. The beast itself looks very dangerous and hard to stop, threat level - DAKKA OVERLOAD.

Description:
A civilian ship retrieved information from an exploration group that fell into the claws of the new entity. The "black box" of one of the frigates of the destroyed group revealed that it shooted at a fast and agile target with values of speed that were not matching with the size of the attacker that the deceased crew named "Blobby". The audiovisual records revealed that a strange bioship was using some type of gas-based propulsion instead of the usual glowing "wings" of the entity. Also the close range scanners managed to reveal a heavy armour in the front of the lifeform shown above, but also that the rest of the body was lacking both of defense and offensive capabilities. The logical deductive protocols of the AI of the destroyed frigate revealed that the possible reason of that lacking of combat capabilities compensed by an uncommon moving speed is that the lifeform evolved to steal the "food" of the already opened ships hulls before other bigger and slower insectoids get close. Threat level - HIGH.

Description: This fighter-sized barnacle clings parasitically to larger creatures to travel long distances. It likes the challenge of cracking metal containers (like ships) to get at the chewy meats within. It is tough and packs strong weapons, though it is light in the speed department.

Description: Surprisingly delicate for a vicious monstrosity, this frigate-sized critter kills more than it eats. It can't hold up under a lot of punishment, but is fast enough to avoid a fair amount of what's thrown at it.

Type: Hive
Description: This is the mother of all fighters, literally. When you see one of these approaching you in space turn your flack guns on and your repair systems as well. As fighters start to spew out of those purple hatcheries.

ENTRY #7

Type: Seeker
Description: With tough skin and scales, this tentacled horror is the perfect predator for tiny fighters. Which is good, because it likes its meals in bite-sized pieces with lots of crunch. The strange gas sacs on its rear provide plenty of propulsive force to drive this beast through space, chasing its crunchy little tidbits.

ENTRY #8

Description: If the buzzing of little wings could translate through vacuum, fighter jockeys everywhere would know horror at the sound of swarms of this little bit of nastiness. A simple bug that is dangerous through numbers.

ENTRY #10

Type: Hunter
Description: A tiny and agile drone, cheap and quick to produce in order to swarm the enemy and distort their sensor readings with the sheer density of said swarm. These are basically infant class ships that were outfitted for kamikaze attacks.

Description: A tribe crew transport was attacked by a new enemy, they managed to send a data burst with a short description and some images of what was attacking them, this is the last transmission from those coordinates, only audio: -A strange insectoid just appeared in the sensors, we heard that they were dangerous and tried to start the FTL drive but...

Description:This guy is the backbone of the beast's wall ‘a death tactic which involves masses of these guys in a wall sucking up damage and anything stupid enough to get close. Although there slow don't underestimate them because while you’re laughing at one trundle its way towards you there’s one trundling its way to you from every other angle!

ENTRY #13

Type: Destroyer
Description: A rebel battlefleet encountered a group of big, heavy insectoids. Half of the rebel units were obliterated in the brave battle, their battle experience revealed that those new cruiser sized beasts have a heavy armour and a large variety of offensive weapons, none of the fighter scuadrons that initiated close combat standed a chance, the counter offensive capabilities of the new entity compensates its lacking of moving speed. Also, several of the rebel frigates were pierced by a completly new kind of weapon, the eyes of the creature have the never before seen ability to emmit powerful beams. Do not engage close combat at any cost!.

Description: A refinery ship that was traveling to a minning operation was attacked and destroyed by unknown enemies, but a scarvenger found the black box of the ship with information about the attackers. The majority of the information was vague and based on stipulations of the crew, but a photo taken in battle reveals that the new threat has two huge claws with some kind of appendages. Also in the photo appears an object that looks like a spine in flight. After some research and judging for the huge ammount of holes in the destroyed ship, the investigators determined that they were made by some kind of natural version of a rail gun.

Type: Seeker
Description: This slow beast may look weak, but do not be fooled, many Amateur pilots have attempted to engage in close quarters combat, only to have his starship being dissolved by potent acid.

ENTRY #18

User Posted Image
Type: Destroyer
Description: This monstrous abomination is a floating nightmare for fleet captains. Being a massive blob of bio-mass this creature is immune to all but the most powerful attacks.The front contains a massive maw, capable of swallowing entire ships whole. upon death the corpse of this creature releases a very toxic acid, stored at the back.

ENTRY #19
User Posted Image
Type: Hive
Description: This huge bug is incredibly slow, both physically and mentally. Outside of combat, it drifts aimlessly and consumes the leavings of its fellows. In combat, its overwhelming toughness makes it a useful distraction; the smarter critters toss one or two of these out front to draw the attention of attacking ships (since they're tough enough to shrug off attacks and too stupid to realize they're being used as bait).

ENTRY #20

User Posted Image
Type: Hunter
Description: This malicious hunter does not seek slaughter on the level of it's companions, rather it is aware of the artificial atmospher econtained in ships. It uses it's pincers to puncutre the hull, then drains the area of oxygen, using an unknown sensory organ.

ENTRY #21
User Posted Image
Type: Seeker
Description: A small frigate-sized insectoid that hunts in packs of up to eleven members and favours grappling onto similar sized and larger entities. Once latched onto the hull, these bugs either skitter about disrupting communications and fire control by destroying antennas, sensors and gun turrets or settle into place and chew through the hull with their over-sized mandibles. Easily swatted away at long range, these critters spell doom for any ship whose gunners fail to keep enough of them away from the hull.

ENTRY #22

Type: Hunter
Description: A small sluggish beast carrying a deadly payload of extremely corrosive acid, these creatures tend to stay away from mainstream combat, creating burrows inside the husks of fallen comrades in order to grow.

Description: A mature version of it's larval state this beast experiences many changes. It's fleshy pinchers have been replaced with teeth covered in a thick, dense chitin. it's ventral sacks filled with acid have expanded and now compose more than 70% of it's body weight. it is a much more aggressive being then it's predecessor and caution is advised when engaging it.

Description: This guy has allot of eyes on the front. You know what that means... it’s a predator. This guy looks to be made up of multiple types of creatures all banding together. Allot like penguins... Except they’d be penguins with chainsaws and devil eyes D:

ENTRY #25

User Posted Image
Type: Seeker
Description: Among the smallest of the seeker-type beasts, this critter numbers among its strengths neither size, nor power, nor toughness. Numbers, on the other hand, it has in spades thanks to a reproductive drive just short of a rabbit on Spanish Fly. Where there is one, there are many, and your boot may not be big enough to squash these roaches before they devour your face.

ENTRY #26

User Posted Image
Type: Hive
Description:This tentacled horror is referred to as "Mom". Its multiple egg-laying sacs allow it to lay the foundation for the next generation of AIIIEEEE! In combat, it sticks to a support role, soothing the hurts of its hunter babies and finishing off the enemy wounded. Remember, mother knows best.

ENTRY #27

User Posted Image
Type: Seeker
Description:This bony creature is an armored torpedo with brains. Its gas bladder and winglike membranes give it remarkable speed, which it uses to smash its way into the hulks of smashed spacecraft looking for the sweet meat lurking within. A speedy menace with hefty natural plating.

ENTRY #28

User Posted Image
Type: Hive
Description:The orifices that dominate this huge ponderous bulk are nests for all kinds of hunter drones. It "swims" its way through space using its tentacles, resulting in a speed and maneuverability that would insult a glacier.

Thanks for your time ^^

i have the feeling that starcraft is missing its textures and wants them back

Those textures were created using as base the textures of starcraft, but the author DID NOT copy pasted the original SC textures, anyways he gave the credit to them for begin a really good source to make this pack of sprites. Do not worry about the credits issue, they were already given, remember that this is just a mirror of the original contest ^^

The great ending =D
