History

The mysterious ship, nicknamed Quark but now known to be a Qhire Khartu, had been found derelict and pilotless by a naval recon squadron. Taken immediately to an undisclosed bunker for further study, unnamed scientists spent years trying to decipher and understand the damaged technology.[1]

Development

The Khartu-al (originally known as "Xi’an Scout") is the first Xi'an ship designed in the game. It's distinctive vertical flight mode has become a major design element as Xi'an culture has developed. The ship was first offered as part of the $23 million stretch goal in 2013, which aimed to create both the "Xi’an Scout" and to expand the game’s focus to alien races. The original concept design was developed by Eddie Del Rio (Freelance Concept Artist)[2], with an additional 2015 concept pass by Gary Sanchez (Freelance Concept Artist).[3] The design is in part a reference to the mysterious "red ship," a vertical spacecraft that appeared in original landing zone mockup in 2012-11-19.[4] The Khartu-al became flyable starting in Alpha 3.2 in June 2018.[5]
