Space Ship thread?
how do you feel about vertical ships like the sexy myrmidon?
>>17140336They're great when as well designed as the Myrmidon, but they've never been as aesthetically pleasing to me.
How is The Orville as a show, anyways?
>>17140336I just hate the idea of having to take elevators/stairs all the time to get anywhere ships like that.
>>17140574Create your own thread for that.
>>17140574In compensation for the off topic, I'll post some more ships.
>>17140583I suppose I could. I'll make it later, so everyone disregard >>17140574Still posting ships though.
>>17139517I love how Orville and Andromeda look like they could live in the same Roddenberry fleet.
>>17140574Better than it should be. The humor isn't very good, but it's a decent Next Generation knock off. And happens to have many of the same writers. >>17140583If it doesn't get deleted.
>>17141153What a goofy looking ship. I love it.
Still think the orville ship looks like the enterprise knocked up moya after a one night stand.

we can build this dream togetherbut only if you reply with "nothing's gonna stop us now"
>Small corvette size spaceship>has firepower comparable to a dreadnought.
>>17141462That supposed to be a bad thing?
>>17141477No. Just a thought.
>>17141462Defiant-class is for edgy faggotsThat scene from First Contact where the Enterprise-E had to save its shiplet ass was the best
Anyone read this series? How is it? I was half interested from the blurbs until I realized the description was basically > Aliens wiped us out but not really, then they left because reasons.> We spent the next era preparing in case they came back> They came back and smashed everything we prepared> Except this old ship that's now our saviour
>>17140728I'd never realized that before but god damn they really do.
>>17141730I like how Picard just kind of stared at it for a minute until enough Starfleet ships exploded (presumably one of them being the Saratoga).
Interplanetary patrol rocketship of Commando Cody, Sky Marshal of the Universe.
>>17141797Picard's a shit bitch. Nancy boy spends every encounter spreading his french english ass open to whatever alien wants a piece that week all in the name of "fostering peace for the federation."
>>17141797Saratoga was when he was still Locutus.
>>17142019There's a lot of Saratogas. I think it's in the Starfleet Charter that one has to suffer some sort of catastrophe every X years.
One day I will be bored and autistic enough to actually play it.
Reminder not to post any Star Trek related posts or threads on /m/ or the mods will bring the banhammer down on you, because they don't know what /m/ is for.
>>17142328Thoroughly ridiculous. I miss the old mod that showed up once every three years but knew what this place was about.Also, the nacelles look weird in this image.
I think y'all forgetting the real best-of-the-best.
Cloak, additional torpedo tubes, dorsal phaser cannons, and a ventral phaser lance that can rip through a Klingon battleship's shields.
>>17142297I know /v/ shills his videos a lot (because he clearly posts there), but Mandalore did a pretty good review on the state of the game in 2016https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ui7ZTlfNngcListen to what he says, don't mine. Just don't.
>>17143618Does that even still exist? I mean clearly the future we saw in All Good Things no longer happens.
>>17143414Crest/Banner of the Star have amazing design and good combat.A shame we can't have those sort of anime anymore, if we did they would just load it with all the elf fetish they can find and 3D spaceship ruined with bright shit color.
>>17143717Yeah. After LOGH, I don't really want to see 3DCGI Ahb ships.
>>17143771There's worse, imagine what they would do to CotS character design.Spoor would get a HUGEboobs fetish for sure, you'd have a pedotrap elve somewhere and they would manage to make Lin Shu Rock Yalulug Dril Hydal Jinto even more bland to serve as the audience surrogate.
>>17143609>>17143611>>17143618I maintain that the fiddly bits by the bridge look silly.
>>17143693"Parallels" taught us there are infinite timelines, so it still exists in some universe, or another.
>>17143783>>17143834I love warp rings.
I want to crucify Alex Kurtzman.
>>17144088The Vulcan ships were good designs in general. Also the Andorian ships.Enterprise, despite its many, many issues, had some pretty cool mechanical designs.
>>17144088I care less about warp thingy than the way they enter warp of do any other form of FTLAlso, let it be on record that I consider all Star Trek design to be utter shit with no artistic sense.
>>17144152Congratulations, Anon! You passed the test, you may now enter the Halls of Superior Taste and get high off your own fumes.
>>17144226Thank you, I will cherish that honor even if I'm saddened that others have yet to break free of the social conditioning that require to pretend Star Trek didn't outlive its relevance and it's not time to move on.
>>17144313Spindly ships are great. I've seen enough jet planes in space to last me a lifetime.
>>17142285The Galactica looks gigantic, but how much of that is actually habitable space?
>>17144090The final Crossfield design grew on me after a while, but those super long nacelles are never gonna not be ridiculous.
>>17141153I like her dumpy little brother, too
>>17144669The final design is certainly not STD's biggest problem(s).
>>17139958Have that game on my nightstand. Is it worth investing my time in to play. Seems a little bit suikoden with its characters and they’re recruitment. I’m afraid I’ll miss out on someone vital and have a diminished experience.
>>17140336One of my favorite gallente ships. The megathron is pretty nice though.
>>17145114holy shit some one else who played suikoden
>>17145051>Someone actually modeled Spaceball 1I'm not mad, I'm impressed.
>>17145135That's deliberately suppose to look like a giant guitar right?
Starships crewed by cute girl aliens
Have some Star Ocean
>>17145255Maybe a second one that looks a bit clearer
>>17141732Isn't that basically the plot of David Weber's Dahak series?
>>17145406Somehow, I don't think that plot is a pure, untouched jewel of originality.
>>17144408Already built a test ship. They really are going fast with this thing, I'm so used to NASA deadlines of "maybe 50 years in the future", this creeped up unexpectedly.
>>17145499isnt it sad that both duck dodgers and the orville are more of a proper star trek series than STD?
>>17145114I'd say it's worth it. Don't worry about missing out on something the first time around, because a major portion of the fun is getting things just right via multiple play-throughs.
>>17145051Long ship is long
>Yamatofags with their one Big Dakka>Not having TWO Big Dakka
>>17145474NASA would go faster if their budget and their plans didn't depend on whoever is the current president.president 1 : We'll go on the moon in 2020 and Mars in 2030!!president 2 : Nope, there's local priority first, I'm gutting your budgetpresident 3 : What? Sure we'll go back to the moon, but you only need 50% of that budgetpresident 4 : What matter is cheap access to orbit, stop anything beyond thatpresident 5 : I don't care about space at all, just make sure no astronaut ever die of anything and I won't fire youpresident 6 : Let's make a Space Force!! (that's for military budget btw, not yours)Also NASA design are safe, redundant and would get science done.For SpaceX it's almost secondary. It's all PR stunt and trying to come up with solution later.Elon Musk : I'm rich and irresponsible, build whatever you need to make me look like Tony Stark!
>>17140027What ship is this? It looks like a Klingon Warbird fucked a Battlestar. .....I like it
>>17146538I think that's one of the Ent-era Klingon ships
>>17146541Yes. Klingon Raptor-class scout.
>>17145944I never understood Star Wars' penchant for off-balance ships like this. Quite a few of them have cockpits off to the side or are otherwise made asymmetrical.
>>17146991Most of the Rebel and Imperial ships seem to be at or near symmetry, but ever since they turned a burger with an olive pinned on the side into the Falcon, I guess they kinda just go with wild asymmetry to denote underworld contractors.
ARC-170 early concept
>>17142385Nice. I found a local collectables place a few years back that had the model kit of this. They wanted £200 for it. They also had a Japanese thunderbird two kit, but I figured it's be too depressing to find out how much that cost
>>17146991Anon, I don't know how to say that to you but Star Wars design never made sense, the little verisimilitude it had was washed/destroyed as talentless artist and script writers added their touch to milk the franchise.And James Cameron didn't cared much for practicality in the first place.Take your ship, what's supposed to be the original reason for the Falcon offset cockpit -also explaining why it's a freighter with a powerful/wide engine- is this picture.Years later they are desperate to have any variation that count as original and fit World War 2 in space aesthetic.You should search for asymmetrical WWII plane btw, some of them are really surprising.
>>17147028I've never liked this solution. The cargo train would eat up half of the pilots field of view making him reliant on sensors to pilot at which point it doesn't matter where the cockpit goes
>>17147043This. The crew has no view of anything forward and to port and the YT-1300 has no other viewports. Hell, they have almost no port side awareness anyway because the cockpit is set so far back and the "forks" would be in the way. I guess it's mitigated by the cockpit being set a little higher than the rest of the hull, but it's still kind of messy. The Solo configuration has the same problems.
>>17147043>>17147108Pushing is easier than pulling and a good field of vision is not a requirement for this job, unlike what Solo do with it, the ship job is to push thing from A to B through a relatively safe space. IRL huge ship are helped for mooring maneuver. And with the way it's built you could have a second YT-1300 on the other side of the train for maneuvering, assuming Tractor Beam technology didn't exist.We all know a realistic spaceship would be controlled through sensors and computers. The only reason's there still bridge on ship nowadays is for redundancy, old design and because it's cheaper than sensor (especially when you don't need airtight hull).If you know a better solution, I'm all hear but my requirement are very high.- it need to justify the powerful engine, bonus for wide engine- it need to justify the offset cockpit- explain why it's a freighter with the worst internal space you could ever imagine- and of course it's shape at the front. the escape pod idea was retarded and shit, just like the movie.
>>17147043>>17147108When you're in an area as big as space, you're relying on computers for visual, not direct sight.
>>17144652Kill zone ISA cruiser. A fine choice.
>>17147585Thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJLBVyz4GBsIf there's a part of your ship you can directly see out of, it's a weak point.
>>17147592I always liked how it sits more like a space station than what we generally envision for a spaceship.
>>17147597Speaking of weak point...>making your station and ships without all band sensor for the off chance an enemy ship make itself invisible in the range they know you use>believing STEALTH is possible in space>>17147632speaking of space station ship
>>17144689I love Red Dwarf vehicles and naming conventions.
>>17142383They went to all that trouble but they couldn't even be bothered to put an agro ship in there. You know, the reference made back in '78
>>17144152That needed a OVA or a series.
>>17142138this movie is super underrated
>>17149118I like your style.
>>17144017They're ridiculous looking and completely pointless. You already have that wave-motion-gun-tier superphaser that punches through hulls and shields like wet cardboard and can apparently fire continuously with zero recharge/power penalties. Why even bother firing anything else let alone adding stupid shit like that? The ship looks infinitely better without them.
>>17150690Do you know what they actually do then?
>>17150791This raises questions,Is there a reason for the design? Its kind of like a Final Fantasy airship if the boat beneath the gasbag had become entirely superfluous.
>>17150717Did they ever do anything in AGT?
>>17150797Yeah, I won't deny it's one of the odder leijiverse designs.
>>17150791I need the webm of them launching flying saucer.>>17148285>>17148289I've always hated Stargate ship design.They clearly backed themselves in a corner making the first one, trying to make human ship recognizable, utilitarian but inferior. Except they didn't have the gut to thread away from Battlestar carrier-battleship so it had to be gigantic and overpowered.They should have gone with small frigate and dropship, that would have fit the themes and gave them more room.
>>17150960>space zeppelinsIs this fron Iron Sky?
>>17151560They really should have explained that the Narada was reverse-engineered Borg tech gone mad or used an actual Romulan-looking ship, but I guess they wanted an intimidating looking "bad guy" design.
All else aside, can we at least admire the fact that a RKKV depiction has occurred on film?
>>17151802As stupid as I think the scene is, it does look really cool.
>>17151715Yes...the Finn's can at least do some things right.
>>17151885All they had to do was have a moment where the shields were disabled in that section, or whatever, and they needed to use that opportunity right then and immediately.Of course, that wouldn't even come close to fixing that mess of a film.
>>17152684That wouldn't solve anything, it would still acknowledge that every single spaceship is capable of genociding planet.The Empire didn't need death star, just to mass produce 1000 FTL drones.They ignored the most basic rules of all science fiction, to not make common device that double as weapon of mass destruction.
>>17152972Also the Rebels didn't need to bother with the trench run and stolen death star plans, they just needed to 9/11 an old freighter into the DS.
>>17151748>They really should have explained that the Narada was reverse-engineered Borg tech gone madIsn't this the actual STO explanation?
>>17153005pretty sure that's the real explanation in a few thingsI think it also appears in the Prime timeline comics that establish the setup for FlareTrek 1 (which also feature Data's personality having commandeered B4's body because fuck B4)I always expected that was setting up for the Borg to be the big bad in FlareTrek 3, especially with bald background bridge guy with the cybercrap saying there was some stuff about his character that couldn't be revealed yet. I wonder if it ran afoul of the "stuff that the tv license owns vs stuff that the movie license / Bad Robot owns" issues.
>>17153011I hope it's not a rights issue. Beyond was enjoyable enough that I'd look forward to Flaretrek 4 having Borg, but Discovery doing it would be... just please no.
>>17152990Yes...but would it have gotten the same penetration? Probably...the real problem is the chain reaction.
>>17153169>Ent S1 sucked>Ent S2 sucked>Ent S3 sucked less>Ent S4 had potential, looked like the series could get better>Cancelled>Star Trek sucked>Star Trek Into Darkness sucked>Star Trek Beyond had potential, looked like the series could get better>Indefinitely suspendedWhy does this keep happening to Star Trek?
>>17153352CBS and Paramount have no fucking clue what they are doing. The fact that they let Alex Kurtzman be in-charge is clear evidence of that.
Not enough Homeworld ITT
>>17153458>objectively correct side AND ion array frigatesGood taste, anon.
>>17153585What are some settings with ships large enough to have their own lakes? Obviously, the Culture. The only other one that comes to mind immediately is Weber's Fourth/Fifth Imperium, though I'm not as well read in big ship SF as I'd like to be.
This will always be my favourite block-ship
>>17153594Macross Frontier...and the image limit have been reached. Fuck you! It's not like I was going to post the best pic known to mankind. Your loss!
>>17153598It's a gun, anon.It's straight up a gun.
>>17153761And guns are basically penises.So its a giant space penis.
>>17153765THE GUN IS GOODTHE PENIS IS EVIL
>>17153787The penis shoots lifeThe gun shoots death
>>17153636>...and the image limit have been reachedWell done /m/
>>17154458Almost all pic are spaceship, so I guess this thread is a success?Maybe we should just make another one, link it here, and continue as we should.
>>17147585Perhaps, but everyone is looking out the windows-"oh look! Star destroyers!"
>>17147043>>17147108Are you stupid?When you pilot a mobile suit you aren't looking out a window.Even today we have ways of viewing things remotely despite the view there from the MK1 eyeball being obstructed.
>>17156505The things you're talking about literally don't exist in Star Wars. Even capital ships are piloted from the bridge looking out a window.
