I have thought of this as well.  It is a great concept.  You don't need
to have pics like what you suggested, but perhaps pictures of certain key
people, special weapons, and such.  However, in keeping with the fun of
MSP, you could also do !!MOV() for short clips (say a ship taking off) or
even quicktime MIDI music.  :)
