Now Carlos Relva, a fellow Brazilian of the Enigmas da Humanidade website just sent me this huge find: apparently on the “X-Men: Evolution” animated series there was a ship extremely similar to the CARET “drones”.
And the important thing is, the episode featuring that ship,
as far as I could check, was aired in August 2, 2003 “Target-X” was aired on September 13, 2003. The original “Chad” drone images were published in May, 2007.
Check below a short clip of the ship:
Relva tells me he watched the episode and noted the similarity, but also says that he remember having read about that on some other place he can’t remember (can anyone find it?).
Regardless of who first discovered it (and as far as I know, it may have been Carlos Relva himself), it’s amazing to find such similarity.
It seems that this ship in X-Men was from the secret and rogue government group that created Wolverine, related to the “X-23” character introduced in the episode, so it also fits. Could it be that the CARET drones are indeed a viral, but for X-Men, Wolverine or something?
Given that it was originally thought that they were a viral for the Transformers movie (or even for the Halo 3 game), and those weren’t confirmed — and so far, have been pretty much disconfirmed — we may also doubt again that it’s a viral for X-Men… whatever.
But at the very least, the hoaxers were inspired by this ship, from the concentric ring, to the spikes above it, even the arms, which in this “original” are folded down (more similar to the “Big Basin” drone).
You could already tell the hoaxers were geeks from the fact they tried to mix ufology with Sillicon Valley culture (PACL-PARC), but who would have thought they were fans of “X-Men: Evolution”?
UPDATE: I watched both episodes where the character “X-23” is featured, and contrary to what I assumed first, the ship was featured on his second appearance, episode “Target-X”, aired September 13, 2003. Good thing is, I captured all the scenes with the ship:
The similarities to the CARET drones are obvious. A basic disc, or even ring, around which there are lower arms, and topped by spikes. Even the natural landscape background for the X-Men ship is similar to those where the CARET drones were featured.
Once again, considering the CARET hoaxers are very probably computer geeks, capable of creating quite nice computer models; and who also tried to mix ufology’s conspiracy theories with Silicon Valley culture, it just fits that they would be inspired on an nnovative design by an animated TV series like “X-Men: Evolution”.
