"ALIEN SCUM CAN KISS THE BUTT OF MY RAILGUN. Orders come in from the brass this morning. Tonight, I'll be on the C-30K Marine Carrier with the rest of 101st Spaceborne. A little hypersleep, a couple thousand gallons of rationed I.V. Nourishment, a few hundred light years, and we'll be knee-deep in Strogg blood."
Soldiers of the Quake Empire — Klingon Skins for Quake II, by Kevin A. Geiselman aka Commander Kordite
"The Klingon Skins for Quake II were made using Paint Shop Pro, NST Model Viewer and, occasionally, a scanner. Warriors of the Empire are encouraged to use these skins in Deathmatches. Feel free to switch heads for your own personality but, as a courtesy, don't change the bodies too much. And don't forget to tell 'em where you got 'em. In the future (hopefully) look for skins for Klingon Honor Guard, Feddie skins (ie, targets) and Klingon Deathmatch levels for Quake II. Boarding parties to the transporter room!"
Battle of the Sexes Mod, by Spinoza — Q2CTF Maps Screenshots
"The object of any game is to win. In this mod the objective is no different. To win your team has to score points. To score points you have to meet certain objectives… number one is capturing the flag. To capture the flag there are certain conditions that have to exist: If you are on the female team then your flag is blue. If you are on the male team your flag is red. So if you are on the blue team (female) then you want to go get the red flag."
