I think it's time to Make the Extension of Crystal Clear Iocrym official as an upgrade
to the In Game Iocrym, being as there seems to be a hint of Upgrading going on anyway.

I like the concept of re-purposing old ships, such as :
the Old Penitent ships going to the Sisters
The Old Sothos going to a low funded faction
The old freighter image being redeployed as an Auton
( since it looks like a modern "Mule" anyway)

There is also a station image :

The Old Iocrym ? Ship Museum in STK to go along with the Iocrym Monument.
Say : move the Monument and encircle it with the old Iocrym ships and a station with a dockscreen to explain to the exploring player that these were the Original Iocrym that were met and since had been inactive since the accord was struck and I think this should help the player appreciate the New Crystal Clear Iocrym & the fact they have a history with space explorers and simply aren't something they have to deal with in Heretic : it also might help with understanding the Archives better to see the Iocrym aren't the bad guys...they just have business...
( if they never actually met the old version in battle or played older versions of the game, I think it would be great to give them that piece of history. )

I would support changing over the sprites to the clear version.

wow, i'm really happy that other people are actually enjoying my renders.

For this to go into the main game is a bit far fetched. Unfortunately I used Bryce to make the renders, and I think, for the sake of consistency, the new renders must be done in Truespace so that George will be able to update and reuse the materials to make new stuff.
