  • Following are four shots of the Krell's immense underground machine complex. This complex is powered by the planet's core, and is self-repairing.

    This is a conduit for energy. To get an idea of the cavern's size, the brown platform is a walkway, slightly wider than a catwalk.

    This is an underground transport vehicle, sort of like a subway or monorail. It was used by Krell engineers while building this space, and is used by humans to explore it.

    This is another section of the complex. You can see the men standing on a platform in the lower left hand corner.

    This is a section of the complex dedicated to computer power (I think).
