If you search the fields near the Hoe of Destruction shed, you'll find a crashed Kilrathi fighter (a Dralthi) from Chris Roberts' Wing Commander series. The locals have some tales about a strange creature that wandered the area after the crash, although I was never able to track down any actual aliens. It's a nice homage to one of Origin's other major software lines of the day, and an entertaining easter egg for players who go about exploring in a serious way.
