I'm happy there's interest to make this happen.
I'll help out where I can.
Here's a few that I've done for Reddit lately. (hmm, this theme trims wide images... edit: now using imgur thumbnails, and edited some.)
I havn't drawn many spaceships or futuristic stuff since I was little though. This will be fun.
I also dabble in python, c... played with building little games and some level design for various games.
But I'm more confident I could help more directly in the art department. I also really enjoy KSP.
I'll be looking for good descriptions of how this game should work/look like for inspiration. See you in the art and design section. I'll start outputting some images.
