Felicitous salutations!

I started this ship a week or two ago. It's the Colonial Guardian designed by Todd Boyce who also designed the Defender which ended up becoming canon.

    very slick! whats the big thing in the middle?
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    that'll be some sort of reactor at some point :D
    still in the 'lets see how this looks' stage so I'm sure it'll change

    Amazing design... personally I never liked the org design of the Guardian, evne back then when it first appeared as fanboy design! But what you've done so fare has just the right vibe man... keep at it:thumb:

    here's a size comp
    Cygnus is 695m long, but I haven't done the math on the Guardian yet, so I'm guessing it's between 550 and 650 meters :D

    Damn, that's a good looking ship there. I like the way the rounded shapes blend into the flat/square shapes so well.

    I with Larsen in both cases...I didn't like the Guardian either but I sure do like yours. Nice work Mr. Stept.

    respect,

    Ooo, me likey. Are you going to leave the reactor thing in the center open? BTW, I like your new avatar backstept, very festive.

    that's as jolly as Max Payne will ever get :D

    about the reactor . . . you mean have gaps around it?
  • 1of331of330 Posts: 0Member
    I would have thought that this one would be bigger than the Cygnus but its up to you, just my thoughts on it
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    well considering that Cygnus is 10 meters longer than the USS Enterprise E I thought it wouldn't be plausible to have it be bigger than that :lol:
    other than Battlestars I don't think that Colonial ships would be city sized
  • DarthMcWordDarthMcWord0 Posts: 0Member
    Yea.
  • Free-LanceFree-Lance0 Posts: 0Member
    I like what I see but still think your Cygnus ( much) is BETTER looking!:thumb:
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User]2 Posts: 3Member
    like your ship :]
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    *yawn* it's just about sleeptime :D
    here's some work on the reactor thingy
  • DimitriyDimitriy0 Posts: 0Member
    Nice...real nice...but an open reactor? Dude...you are just asking for a KABOOM..arent ya?
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    I imagine that these ships were built at the height of the war. very quickly and cheaply constructed with modular systems, such as the reactor
    maybe it's more of a EW or recon ship than an offense/defense ship
    I dunno . . . at this point I'm more concerned with building it than the fictitious tactical issues :D
  • LarsenLarsen171 Posts: 0Member
    Either way man... It looks super:thumb:
  • Lee80Lee80192 Posts: 458Member
    I think it fits into the "it just looks cool" category...
  • xanthraxanthra0 Posts: 0Member
    I have to chime in and say that th reactor thingy is great and makes this design stand out. That said, it needs some weapons or it's not much of a guardian, eh ? ;)
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    weapons eh?
  • Infinity238Infinity2380 Posts: 0Member
    Cool turrets backstep, one question. Missle or Kinetic batteries? :)
  • backsteptbackstept1865 Posts: 897Member
    those are kinetic, missiles are next :D
