Though I would say that the general shape of the Medium Lifter is just as symbolic.

It was the symbol robot on the D1 cover art.

...with the Diamond claw being D2's. Sadly, D3 didn't get such a treatment. :-\

Well, the title does say Descent 1 and 2.  Although, neither the Medium Lifter nor the Diamond Claw are among the choices.

Most Descent 3 stuff I've seen often had the Tailbot, or the Frag missle firing version of it.

Again, not in the choices.

Out of the choices given I voted for the shield orb. My first choice would have been the Pyro-GX, but hey, I am kind of biased  ;D
There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow s--- up.

Nah, the Tubes was pretty memorable. First a scream, then you get sent flying.

The GX is the universal symbol for all things Descent, and it cannot be argued with. Ever. The powerups, however, are a different story.
This is kind of a poll-slash-debate.

lol, never thought about that!  But there are other ways of cloaking without bending light.

I finally played Descent last night and really liked the extra life powerup the most. I just think it's cool.

Wait, you've never played D1 before?
