 I'm sure the Kra'Vak clans would combine against the humans,
 but in some? many? cases it may not be any more harmonious than
 the NAC and ESU! "Once we've dealt with these disgusting hairy
 creatures your entire clan are history pal!" "Oh yeah?" ...

 As for telling them apart, IMHO the centre line designs DO look
 quite different to the current Kra'Vak. We've already got five
 'official' human fleets and more on the way, each with their
 own characteristics. I know it's a science fiction cliche (for
 television anyway) that aliens are all homogenous and unified,
 unlike the diverse humans, but it's not compulsory :-)

 I just got back from a convention and my imagination is running
 in high gear. This was an idea I thought worth throwing around.
 (Expect a few more!)

 Will give it a go, but first I've got to finish my B5 Shadows,
 and then some modified NAC...
