Starship Concept - Kerberos by MK01 Starship Concept - Kerberos by MK01
A little frigate. Lightly armed but heavily armored, she glides through space on her extraspacial drives along the patrol lines of the Terran League...

Quick little something, somewhere between 2 and 3 hours, Photoshop 7, Graphire 3. The concept came into existence during a particularly long lecture...

Very sleak design.

No idea what the Terran League is or what extraspacial drives are but that design is excellent in my opinion at this time.

I love the design.

You should build it, and we can be space pirates XD Ah, how cool would that be?

Yeah, maybe. If I add color, I'll take some time and put some nice background there, as well.

Nice. I like the HW influences with the sensor wands, and the gun on the hull. :D But at the same time, I can tell flat out that it is not Hoemworld-oriented. :D I really like the curved shapes here.

Although...one gun? That looks like someone could shoot it off with a lucky shot, and then your frigate's crew had better hope the armor holds while they jump to hyperspace... :evileye: I'd suggest at least one more gun somewhere, just to give it the sense that if one gun's gone, it can still shoot.

But since this is a quickie concept, I'm probably just nitpicking. :D

The shades, and mood are nice here. I get the sense of a very lonely patrol, maybe an eccentric crew...

Well, they still have their missiles (in the lower parts of the side pods), and the first concept also had twin beam cannons... but I guess a few more turrets won't hurt.

Definitely a few eccentrics, or outright maniacs, on board. I like to compare space warfare to submarine battles, so there's a lot of running silent, days of waiting in the dark, with only life suport turned on, and the certainty that one direct hit could be the end.

Nice. I could see you writing a few stories about this crew. There could be some very interesting characters there.

Well, the turrets might be better for defensive stuff, while your missile/beam systems could be for attacks? Of course, I get the feeling your ship's captain probably grumbles about the shipyard having either pulled one weapon too many or didn't add enough when they designed the thing. :XD:

(Bleh, you'll have to excuse me, this is what happens to my brain on too much Honorverse. If you like the submarine-type fights, you might like David Weber's Honor Harrington series. There's stuff on RB about how to get into it...might give you some ideas.)

I've indeed started working on the characters... one of the main females is to be found in the next newer deviation. :) There might indeed be a few nice little stories in there.
