Interplay had to rename them Mirak and change a bit of history for that race.
People said the Kzinti would come no matter how many examples how difficult the legal situation would make it I mentioned.
I also said I want to be wrong but it's not that easy.
And unfortunately I was right.
I hope I'm wrong this time but when the ship was previously published somewhere else and not published as part of a contest for the first time I think it's going to be very difficult...
However, that race you speak of was tied to other money making projects.

But regardless, it is a cool design and if nothing else might inspire others.
