october 20: beta version or reject design for the warden. Well hi there David Wain! I didn’t think you’d make it in here XD after finding out about his older design I just instantly thought of the voice actor because they heavily influenced his design on him, I’m so glad this exist.
One little thing that I really liked about Beta / Earthlings was that it sort of resolved a weird situation from earlier in the show.
Waaaaay back in The Return, when Peridot was coming back to Earth with “reinforcements,” I always though it was kinda weird how all the backup she got was just one other (admittedly tough) Gem. Now, though, we know that Jasper isn’t just some Gem enforcer– she is, in Peridot’s terms, “the ultimate Quartz” and likely one of the strongest soldiers Homeworld has ever had.
So they didn’t send Peridot back with “just one” bodyguard, they sent her back with thefucking Terminator.
