Earth and Beyond Online

Westwood Studios announced that Doug Chiang, an Academy Award Winner best known for his work on popular films such as Back to the Future II, Death Becomes Her, Terminator 2, Forrest Gump, and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, will join with the Earth and Beyond Online project as a consultant and to provide conceptual art for the game's spaceships. Chiang commented that the Earth and Beyond Online universe presents a unique challenge with its three distinct cultures. He explained that each bears its own personality and style that must be reflected in the designs of their ships.

"The warrior Progen have dangerous-looking, well-armed fighters that need to look intimidating, while the scientific Jenqui are more partial to graceful curves and fluid lines. Meanwhile, the Terran tradesman have large cargo holds for holding loot, but being enthusiastic capitalists at heart, still like to travel in style," said Chiang.

Craig Alexander, online vice president and executive producer of Earth and Beyond Online, stated that he is thrilled to have Chiang, who is currently working on Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, contributing to the project. "Doug has done amazing work on the Star Wars movies and we can't wait to show the world what he has in store for Earth and Beyond Online."
