Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak has a cool land-based aircraft carrier

I’m calling it the Kharaktopus

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak is set to come out in less than two weeks on January 20. Maybe you want to watch a trailer for the story before you kharak open your wallet. Maybe I only signed up to write this story because I wanted to make a stupid pun.

Deserts of Kharak is a prequel to Homeworld, set in a dusty desert of a dying planet. An anomaly shows up deep in the dunes, and it might be the only hope for survival. Cue lumbering land vehicles and war.

The voice we hear in the trailer might be that of Chief Science Officer Rachel S’jet. After seeing her name, I’m hoping for Transformers crossover fiction where it’s actually a typo of “Rachel’s a jet,” and she turns into an airplane. Hey, more puns. Two for the price of pun.
