These 3 images were combined to make a single spaceship pulled by an asteroid.

The combined ship looked as follows:

The little lights on this warning beacon turned on over time. If they all turned on, the alarm went off and bad stuff happened. There were separate light images for the four sides and corners.

The ball fleet was originally called the grey fleet. I have renamed it to better reflect its most notable characteristic.
There are more ball fleet spaceship images under Miscellaneous Images.

Minion Fleet Spaceships

Many of these spaceships were intended to carry minions. The ring spaceship is animated.

The ring spaceship was intended to carry two rings of smaller spaceships that revolved counterclockwise around it. It can, of course, be used for other purposes; I have just included this because I find if very annoying when I find an image that obviously was designed with something specific in mind but cannot work out what that purpose was. Both rings had room for the same number of minions (8) and revolved at the same speed (45 degrees in 20 frames).

The dark flying saucer does not look good on a black background. The disk mostly disappears, leaving only what appears to be blue beams coming out of a floating blue blob. It might look better with a more interesting top.

Animated mine with blinking lights - actually quite easy to see on black background

A wormhole. It looks quite good on a black background. There is also an animated flash effect for when something falls in. The flash should be centered on the middle of the wormhole, where its final size covers the circle on the wormhole. Flashes of different solid colours work well with different things falling in.
