SciFi Villain Chess

Tell us about this design.
This is the set-up to an epic, franchise-combining intergalactic cerebral battle. Once I started thinking about the various chess pieces the individual characters pretty much assigned themselves - the Alien Queen would be the fast moving, brutal killer of the board. The Emperor would be like the King, fairly slow moving and fragile, but deadly if you get too close. The Predator/Knight would move unexpectedly suddenly being right on you. Cylons and Daleks would move fairly mechanically, their moves slightly restricted...
That's basically a lot of talk, for what I thought, was a cool geeky design. One day i'll get around to doing the good counterpart version - if anyone want's to see it you can follow me on twitter at @Seven_Hundred or my facebook group - http://www.facebook.com/groups/110289168995871/
Where are you from?
How would you describe your style?
If you could collaborate with anyone else, who would you pick?
Hmm - not sure, someone with a lot of time on their hands... I've got a lot of ideas rattling around in my head.
What historical figure do you most admire?
The caveman who discovered burnt twigs are excellent for making marks on things...
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
Probably playing my Xbox.
Would you rather fight Darth Vader or the Borg?
Darth Vader easy. Even if I lose, which I suspect I would, I get to have 'Struck down by Darth Vader' on my grave.
Good vs. evil: which would win the battle?
Evil probably, good would get hung up on morals, and what's right blah blah blah... Plus, look at that ensemble above, evil is just cooler.
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
It's very rare I wear a plain t-shirt.
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
Tokyo - it was like visiting the future, can't wait to go back. To the future.
