Designed very well. The overall scale of her is imposing- throw in the main cannons and you have a ship that can decimate a fleet, conquer a world, and fly away without a scratch on its hull. Shape is very ultra modern and able to support the weapons systems without looking awkward or bulky. By the profile itself it seems almost aerodynamic. Minor criticisms- the top fin above the Bridge seems added on, and I see no visible purpose to it; perhaps add a smaller ship to this photo to provide a sense of scale. Still a magnificent display of elegance and power.
holly hell man great job. I have to ask tho is this ship overpowered compaird to everyone one. Especially in a squardrosn of five and at 7.5 kilameters else I mean I would just surrender when I see theis ships in orbit.
She's 7.5km long and she can pick up a top speed of around 5,500km/min. She's much faster than the equivalent Alliance ships given that much of her hull and power can be devoted to propulsion thanks to a unique system of propulsion and her huge power plants.
zooming in and viewing the recess with viewports really helps convey the staggering size of the top-of-the-line warship. I like the small colored lights on the smaller turrets. As someone else mentioned, I would love to see other orthographic views of the ship.
772 meters long energy cannon turrets , I would only say , Y E S ! It kind a makes me think that when size still, does , matter . It only serves one purpose , and that is ... just to get all the wild funds of money , resources , men power alien power slave power to pour into this kind of majestic mega battle cruiser just for the sheer looks of her . Another terms just to satisfy those a few power hungry top commanders . Cause I strongly do believe , with the fraction of the money and men power with sizes ,a lot smaller you can achieve more powerful battle cruisers .
Love the scale ref with the A380. So.... guns the size of about, what, 30, 40, 50 A380s? Yeah, sounds about right :-D Would love to see a video of a small ship (say, Star Trek shuttle class) tootling alongside the hull of this thing, just to get a sense of the massive scale.
Jesus, that's big! Main gun looks like it could cause an extinction-level event if used against a surface, the main batteries look like they could tear smaller battleships to shreds and the secundaries look formidable, too. Looks like it'd take at least three... no, FIVE of my battlegroups to even challenge this thing!
You know, one question I've had on these monsters: On a ship this heavily armed and armored, is there any sense in having the main guns retract? Seems like it would take a lot of space/mechanicals that could be better utilized and would also be a potential weak spot in battle. Those batteries appear to be about 1/9th the length of the ship, even with the tech involved, that's a lot of mass to have to retract back into the ship. And given that they are designed to be in a raised position when fired, I would assume that they are heavily armored as well. So...reason for the retraction? (Assuming something to do with the streamlining of the technobable technobable space field during technobable technobable drive )
Otherwise....WOW!!! Nice work. The detail is wonderful and the thought you've put into your universe is great. Love these monsters and look forward to more!
