So I am at a crossroads and I need your help to decide.  Right now I am not certain which direction I want to go with CoM.  Part of me wants to make it more of a Space Opera - Star Wars and the old Battlestar Galactica for the modern age.  Another part of me wants to go the direction of harder scifi.  Redesign the capital ships with large rotating sections, more modular and "stacked" designs that invoke ideas from 2001 A Space Odyssey and 2010 its subsequent sequel along with other great hard scifi series.  

I am not certain, and in this case I want to leave it more to you all to decide as CoM is as much yours as it is mine.  Any thoughts?

Sneak Peak: Daedalus-Class Coalition Destroyer WIP by ChroniclesofMan
Sneak Peak: Daedalus-Class Coalition Destroyer WIP
I don't often post WIPs this early in the design progress (i.e., with my sketches still as part of the base art), but I am quite excited about the new direction I am heading with the Coalition (who are far more advanced in CoM 3.0), and I figured I'd give you a early look at the first stages of my artwork.  

Hope you enjoy the WIP.  -Josh

CoM 3.1 Ship Redesigns and Re-Detail: After Careful Consideration I've decided I am going to work on some major redesigns and re-details of the ships (superseding the work I've already done). So now its your turn to weigh in on the direction CoM could go 

55%
98 deviants said Futuristic Realism - Ships would have a decidedly advanced look and feel with a focus on ultra-high tech look (Think Mass Effect)
25%
45 deviants said Modern Realism - Ships would have a modern feel, with the technology of today morphed to serve the functions and feel of a futuristic space navy. (Think Wing Commander)
6%
11 deviants said Future-Past Realism - Ships would have a retro-ish feel. Think things like wired phones and manual hand valves (Think Galactica)
4%
7 deviants said Futuristic Cool - Disregard the technical aspect of the design for the sake of sleek and epic looking ships. Add giant fins and towers with a high tech feel. (Think Tron)
4%
7 deviants said Modern Cool - Disregard the technical aspect for tough and modern inspired ships. Hulls would be complicated but advanced with a homage to modern ships.

7 deviants said Something Else...Please Comment.
2%
4 deviants said Future-Past Cool - Disregard the technical aspect for rugged and retro designs that border on the steam-punk-ish.

So, my question is whether the CoM ships have any method of close defense beyond the counter-missiles? I understand that the main armament of the ship in CoM universe are missiles traveling at a speed of 0.X c or mass drivers/las cannons  depending on nation doctrine and armor>shields>counter-missiles seve as ships defence , but what about light craft or boarding shuttles? Not equiping ship with weapons capable of engaging such targets simply because lighter fleet vessels can is not wise idea (same reason why modern naval vessels still have HMG mounts) and shooting them down with CM-s is...well like trying to kill a fly with a cannon.
P.S. Sorry for prying but i'm simply curious.

Oh there are many types of defensive weapon types.  There are rapid fire rail guns, laser batteries (turrets and arrays), and even plasma flak and burst fire weapons for more "wide area" point defense against smaller vessels.  In addition, CoM 3.0 will see the introduction of the importance of small craft and anti-small craft weaponry.

Hope that helps.

Adam and I are acquaintances actually. He's been working in the CoM realm lightly for some time.  Great guy, and yeah he does wonderful 3D models.  Thanks for the tip though!
