Legacy / Scout Thargoid Ship concept

Game : Elite: Dangerous - Horizons
Studio : Frontier Developments

A couple of years back I got to design the new version of the original Thargoid ship that existed in the very first Elite game (1984) and make it fit to the actual Elite : Dangerous universe.
It's a very old ship / creature which is less evolved and more primitive than the new species that players have encountered in game. It flies like a saucepan while rotating on itself instead of flying front facing and vertically like the new species. It has grown more symmetrically, yet hinting towards what the new species has become.
