Yes, but those were 100% CGI*, with bone white skullmasks and BIG glowing red eyes, not a guy in a costume. The Drakh Emissary's face was not bone white (IIRC, it was greenish-grey.), and the eyes although BIG, were dark, not glowing red.

Man, I wish we could redo CRUSADE, and make it all right, fixing these annoying problems.


OOPS!!! Forgot about the Drakh footsoldiers IN the ship. The white skullface guys weren't ALL CGI.

Yeah, I didn't think all of them were CGI, though some were obviously so. Either way, the "Lines of Communication" "emissary" was far better than any of the Crusade ones, and I liked the "emissary" better than the actual Drakh. For me, the actual Drakh were just another actor in a face mask, but the emissary, specifically because of the blurring effect, were cool and new and not something I expected.

At first I only remembered the ones from War Zone that:
  • Shot down Jensen when he stupidly did a tight turn in the atmospheric shuttle right over top of the Drakh with those shoulder mounted beam weapons.
  • Trace saw in the binoculars.
  • Gideon's Thunderbolt Starfuries blew away walking along the cliff face and not even getting off a shot at the Starfuries.

The blurring effect was cool.
