How come the precursor stylization is so differing between the Vindicator and Sa-Matra? They look nothing alike. I probably glossed over the explanation in my most recent playthrough, but it just dawned on me. I am paying 120,000 credits to the person with the enlightening response.

Perhaps one was built in a time period before the other. For example, with human technology, the computers of today look nothing like the computers of ten years ago. Maybe the sa-matra was built with older tech or vice-versa.

There's also the simple fact that they're intended for *very* different purposes. It's like comparing a cargo helicopter to a stealth bomber, or a tugboat to an aircraft carrier. They do different jobs and are designed accordingly.

Another theory is that because we know so little about the Precursors, it's possible that what we consider their technology was actually created by several different races with different design senses.
