Nothing like a Honor Harrington Superdread.

Yeah.  These suckers don't quite fight broadside to broadside and are more VLS style like modern ships.

And I thought the Admiral-class was big. Talk about an escalation. Does the Empyreans even have anything close to this?

Brilliant. I like your designs; they feel much more realistic than a lot of ships out there. Much more self-contained. I love the fact that you've thought everything through a lot better, as well. Makes it all feel more realistic. :)

I'm new to your work. (I love it BTW) But where are the command centers on these ships? Is it BSG style with it in the middle somewhere?

There are in fact a series of command centers especially on a ship this large. At the core of the ship are the CICs as you mention. These are where senior weapons and tactical officers coordinate fire control, battle space information and track combat situations. However, the senior officer isn't usually there. Instead, this is where you will usually fine senior commanders (Admirals or Squadron Commodores). The Captain himself is on the bridge which is (if you go to the large view) located just forward of the forward underbelly turret. Here, the Skipper gets a command view of the battle-space (protected by some of the heaviest shields on the ship) and can keep his attention on ship action and direction firing missions with the senior weapons officers located there (who take info from the CIC and turn it into fire control information for the main guns, missiles, point defenses, etc).

This is an impressive bad ass of a vessel. I could imagine enemy leaders soiling themselves when coming across a squadron of these vessels. With all those missile batteries they could let out enough firepower to glass a planet most likely.

A single destroyer could glass a planet given the yield of weapons in this series. That is why there are treaties against the un-restricted use of naval bombardment on planets.

*whistles* Youve made some pretty scary ships before, but this takes the cake.

Untill you design a new one. Anyway, I have to wonder, is there a clear distinction of good and evil in your universe? Meaning, is one nation evil, or is this something like Gundam, no clear enemy, just what the people think?

Actually, this ship is going to be the standard for some time. I want to go work on other nations.

There are evil leaders. People who clearly have distorted views and act evil. However, on both sides there is good and bad. Noble warriors and cowards. Trying to show the duality. That even in terrible situations with terrible leaders creating a terrible situation, there are good men and women on every side.

It's a shame that those honerable few work for the evil that lead them. But that's what makes for a good story.

Impressive, a mighty ship indeed.
Good idea puting PDM-racks near the landing/docking bays to provide cover if needed.

well you really don't want missile sneaking into a bay that big. Its already a structural weakness that is counter-acted as best it can. If you get a missile INSIDE it. Well, it would be like wrapping your hand around a M-80. Not good. However, Celestial has some of the best counter-missile protection in the galaxy.

LtCWest Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2011
Agree about that and i also think the PDMRs could provide cover for every frigate or corvette that is in deep need to dock, with something of the same size pursueing it, but is still to far away to be protected by the Celestials own C-G Barriers (if they extand around the ship like a bubble rather then a "secound skin", still haven't figured it out yet).

The shields actually extend out but not far. Probably around 50-100m. More skin like than bubble like. You can't really protect another ship inside them (unless of course that ship happens to be inside the other ship - like docked frigates/corvettes.

But Armageddon isn't a true warship. She's a support ship. A fleet carrier. That's more akin to what the Alliance uses with regards to its starbases and warships. This ship above can pull accelerations up 1100g, can move at 2 light years an hour at FTL, can engage at high velocities, and can roll her hull so fast that the crew inside would start to get motion sick even with inertial dampeners.
