Everything is better in black/orange color.

Had it only been slightly brighter, it would have helped. Otherwise the design is quite believable and appealing. Good job, holmes.

Not up against the new Celestial-class. I'm not one to strike my colors and run, but . . .

I would not, I probably use those thick shields and ram the dread into oblivion at the highest speed I can reach.

Does kill me an my crew, but I am certain they put a plague up for us somewhere to comment our heroic action.

I must say this one is just more up my ally big guns, screw missiles and stare the enemy down. Feels so much simpler than fancy missiles and the stuff, just get in aim and shoot, whit a nice grin on your face.

No one you would manage to make it through to hit a Celestial. A celestial's mass drivers alone would rip a battlecruiser to shreds. In fact, it could gut an entire squadron of battlecruisers with ease. You would end up being dust in the face of my flagship. :D

And though the big guns may be simpler, the Alliance's missiles are advanced and capable, they can engage well outside the typical range of Imperial warships and while Imperial warships might bite hard when they get within gun-range, a modern alliance Vanguard-Class battlecruiser could probably soften a Empyrean Sovereign enough so that when they get gun-to-gun, the Vanguard could still do its job

Wow, I must say your CoM designs are trully sexy.

So these guys are the 'nips' of your universe eh?
Too bad the engagement speeds you mentioned are so crazy, guess that means no Kamikaze-Space Fighters doesn't it?

A thing of beauty. Bridge design reminds me of Starship Troopers, though this monster'd eat whole fleets of Roger Young [link] - class ships for brekfast.

Wait. They're evil? But I thought "The noble empire has maintained a strong friendship with the Alliance..." [link] ^^;

i saw this ship and thought "dang, the only option i would have left in a bad conflict would be evacuate my ship, set her on auto pilot and ram her down this one's throat"

Then what would you do with the 5km long superdreadnought that makes this thing look like a toy? :D

if i was in command of a superdreadnought i Would Turn this puppy's hull into swiss cheese, but if i had a Winter Dawn Class, no way would we make it out without ramming

Well you really can't ram in this universe. These ships are moving at 2.5% the speed of light in combat and are arching pass each other at high speeds and firing like mad. Ramming really won't work. Sorry :D

what if it was in a situation where FTL wasn't possible, like say near a planet?

I'm not talking about FTL. Near a planet they are still going 2.5% the speed of light. Even massive ships like this, the other would simply be able to juke and dodge.

Absolutely awesome. I really like it. Quite frankly I prefer this design to the designs of the Alliance Navy ship designs. The color, the lines, everything is good.

::shrugs:: I prefer the Alliance designs. We each have what we like. These guys are evil though, so it must just mean you are evil :D

LOL, I'm not evil. Ok, well technically I could be considered that, just like the rest of humanity... BUT anywho, I'm not that bad, I just think the design is great.

Evil. E. V. I. L. You wish to conquer. The Alliance is for defense of freedom!

No really...everytime I look at this ship and the vanguard next to it the thing that pops into my head is simply:

"Take evasive action! Green group stay close holding sector MT7."
"Admiral, we have enemy ships in sector 47!"
"Its a trap!"
