The Space Rovers by MetalExveemon The Space Rovers by MetalExveemon
As many of you know, I am one of the hopefuls that "Road Rovers" will come back. And even if it doesn't, I will continue to dream and to write and to draw and create, because I love this series, and it shouldn't die out. :D

Now, some of you might remember the Space Rovers who appeared in the episode "Take Me To Your Leader." I rather resented the way how they just randomly appeared with no background story or introductory or anything else. Not only that, but only their leader, Persia, was given a name and speaking lines, while the rest were just speechless drawings.

In my own personal remake of the series, the Space would be given a story to show how they came to be, and each of them would be given their own name, personality, skill, background, etc.

Unfortunately, because I could only find one screencap that showed only Persia and two other Space Rovers (from the front; there was another Space Rover, but I could only see him from the back), I can only present drawings of these three as of this time:

Persia, an afphgan dog;
Molly, a cockerspaniel (the reason I named her Molly is simply because that's the name that came to mind when I was thinking up possible names, and it just stuck; plus I would have her be a romantic interest for Exile, simply because that seems like such a cute coupling)
Duke, a black lab (I named him Duke because I've seen and heard about a lot of black labs who had that name, plus it just seemed to fit)

Also, I think I would have the Space Rovers be a female-dominated team, as opposed to the Road Rovers and Ninja-ken, who have only one female team member each. The Space Rovers would consist of 4 female dogs and one male.

So anyway, if anyone has any extra screencaps of the Space Rovers, please feel free to share them, as well as any possible dog species and names you think I could use for the extra two slots I have open for the remaining Rovers. :)

Space Rovers (c) WB
Duke/Molly (c) well, their designs belong to WB, but their names and personalities belong to me

I think they need a robot sidekick like Data from Star Trek or R2-D2 from Star Wars.

It's good that you gave these guys attention. However, these guys were introduced in "Dawn of the Groomer," when Shepherd debuts the portraits of five Space Rovers (including Persia) about 12 minutes in before the Rovers leave to put a halt on the Groomer's ritual.

This, however, causes a gaping plothole. If the Road Rovers had affiliates around the world, why do we focus solely on the five main heroes, who are also from around the world? There should have been an episode about the far-off colleagues' life of fighting crime.

MetalExveemon Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013
Wait, what? Really?! ^^ Ooh, I wish they still had the episodes up on youtube so I could go back and check!

How I would explain the plothole is this: have the Space Rovers get an introduction (show how they were chosen and how they got turned into canosapiens) and then have them go off on their own adventures. They could either be recurring characters on the show or get their own spinoff - or both. :D

i think the space rovers job is to protect earth and other planets from evil aliens such as these.

which one looks intimidating to be a main villain for the space rovers?
Reply
:iconmetalexveemon:
MetalExveemon Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013
I'd say the second one, because the first one doesn't look like a main villain type, he's just some monster creating havoc. The second guy looks like he's got a plan...

yeah the first monster looks like minion. i also have an idea for an alien character who is a weapons specialist and lives aboard the space rover. i imagine he would look like this.s.cghub.com/files/Image/306001…

I like this! Persia is cool! Persia inspired my Indian-motif Afghan female warrior Lakshmi, who wields a katana, even though she has Indian blood. I also modeled Lakshmi after Barriss Offee from Star Wars, who was the Jedi Knight apprenticed to Jedi Master Luminara Unduli.

You're welcome. Lakshmi is named after the Hindu deity Vishnu's wife. Maybe I'll do a pic of Lakshmi soon. She has a fondness for jewelry and lotus flowers, and she'll be the other female Inu warrior on the team besides Tora, my first leading lady of my warrior canine series.
