Blacktron Chamberlain-class Capitulator
When you've finally taken all you can take from those big meanies in the Zargon sector, this is your flagship.
About this creation
The ultimatum from the Supreme Commander of the Zargon Empire minced no words:

"Surrender immediately or your puny planet will be wiped from the face of the galaxy."

Well, he had a point. Your planet is puny, but pointing out that galaxies technically don't have faces wasn't helpful.

Having been surrounded by Zargon Planet Wipers on 4 sides, nothing left now but to send out your civilization's last hope -- the Blacktron Neville Chamberlain-class Heavy Capitulator.



Just pray that the Zargons know what a white flag means.







"Yes, Supreme Commander, we surrender unconditionally!"

...

"But we did come unarmed, Supreme Commander! Honest!"

...

"Yes, they do look like weapons, Supreme Commander, sir, but...!"

...

"But they're just, uh, valium dispensers, Supreme Commander! Yeah, valium to, uh, calm the crew, sir! Surrenders can be pretty nerve-wracking, you know!"

...

"But of course you wouldn't know, Supreme Commander! Well, anyway, no weapons on this ship! No siree, Bob! I mean, no siree, sir!"

...

"Uh, no sir, I'm not familiar with a Zargonian Wedgie. What's that?"




Of course, the Capitulator also doubles as a spinning top.





Warning! Always wear eye protection when working or playing with high-speed LEGOŽ rotating machinery and keep valuables and bystanders (including pets) a safe distance away -- especially when testing new designs.

Quoting David Roberts All your base are belong to us! https://youtu.be/8fvTxv46ano I'm surprised those flags stay so well attached.
Oh, David, that video had me ROTFL literally! It's pure genius (not sure what kind exactly, but genius all the same). And yes, pretty sure the Supreme Commander of the Zargon Empire and the voice-over guy on the video went to the same finishing school.

Quoting Didier B That's a nice one ! Yellow married with black is a very good color choice. Didier
Thanks, Didier! I like that combo, too. To see some really striking examples by some very talented builders, search MOCpages for "Blacktron".

Quoting Gabor Pauler No wonder why the guy was so angry: just spinning, and spinning ang keep on spinning all day can be a boring method of hyperspace travel... For the flags: you can tell the tech-geeks that they are concealed solar panels...
Thanks for the cover-story, Gabor! That's my story now, and I'm stickin' to it. As for spinning in place as a method of travel, don't forget that stirring up a vortex in the subspace tachyon field is equivalent to drilling a wormhole through hyperspace. You just have to know when to stop spinning and dive in.

Quoting Alex TwentyTwo I can't wait to see the minifigure scale. I am currently working on a 9 foot, three story Blacktron battlecruiser. I like how it functions as a spinning top.
So that's where all the black brick went! Thanks, Alex. Maybe I'll make a minifig bridge scene onboard the Capitulator with a scowling Zargon Supreme Commander on screen.

Quoting Oliver Becker A flagged spaceship is really a novelty in universe, Jeremy! Even white flags mean to give up, YOU won't as one can see again lookin' on your new and fascinating creation... ;) Keep on bricking, my friend!
Thanks, Oliver! You know the movie line, "In space, no one can hear you scream." Well, I don't think waving white flags does much good there, either, but I wanted to try a Blacktron-style ship/top. Since MOCpages is already loaded with space ships with fierce, grandiose names, I thought a name that conveys a rather different image might be in order.
