Defender Class Starship, Part 6

Like every good Starfleet ship, the Defender gets her own dedication plaque.
Because I used an older 23rd century design for the ship’s overall look, I did the same for the dedication plaque. Therefore the Defender’s dedication plaque is based on those as seen in Star Trek: Discovery.

Just for fun I designed a LCARS system illustration for the Defender-Class, which contains some background information about the ship.


These are the Defender-Class development patch from the prime and mirror universe.
The patch for the mirror universe is inspired by the mirror universe symbol seen in Star Trek: Discovery.

Defender Class Starship, Part 4

The starship Defender is now finished and ready to go to its maiden voyage.
Just for fun, I also created the Mirror Universe version of the ship. For its symbols, I used the Terran Empire symbol from the Star Trek: TNG – Mirror Broken comic series.

Defender Class Starship, Part 3

I finished the aztec hull pattern of the Defender. I also added/changed some minor details of the ship – addition of the ship’s name and registry on the aft “sensorpod”, addition of a glow effect to the sensor dome & I changed the alignment of the bridge window section – the “walls” are now more closley to the window.

In the last few days I put some color to the Defender. The major part of the ship schould be done by now. All what is left is some shading and the aztec pattern to the hull, for a more cooler look.


Defender Class Starship, Part 1

The ship’s overall design is based on the Shepard class “U.S.S. Gagarin” from Star Trek: Discovery. Since I saw the ship for the first time on screen, it was – for me – one of the most likeable designs of all the different Starfleet vessels. Even if the look would have fitted more in the 24th century era.
So I took the Gagarin and designed my own late 24th/early 25th century Starfleet ship. The basic layout is almost the same as the Shepard class. I also added some details from other ships – e.g.: Sovereign class escape pods & saucer impulse drive sections, Miranda class sensor elements and the hull plating is based on the Akira class.

This is the concept art for the generic Phase I clone troopers of the “169th Attack Battalion” for my Star Wars: Destiny comic project.

Star Wars: Armada – Custom Ships, Part 1

In addition to my custom fighter squadrons, I now finished the repaints of my imperial capital ships. I gave them all a black color theme, to mark the ships as members of the same fleet. I also added some windows to the ships, to make them more “alive”.

BSG Shipyard, Part 1

After I found one of my old drawings of a shipyard from Battlestar Galactica, I decided to redesign it. This time I try to give it a more unique look, because my first version was nothing more than the “Scporion Shipyard” (seen in Battlestar Galactica: Razor) in another arrangement.
To get a feel for the scale of the shipyard, I first created the different ships that I will use.

This size chart is now the first step to my new shipyard.

From top to bottom: Battlestar – Mercury Class, Battlestar – Jupiter Class (fully armored), Battlestar – Jupiter Class (Galactica type), Battlestar – Nova Class (original Battlestar Galactica), Light Battlestar – Valkyrie Class, Cruiser – Berzerk Class, Cruiser – Defender Class, Tylium Freighter, Pocket Battlestar – Orion Class & Passenger Liner.
