SHIPtember 2017: Naja-Class Missile Corvette
My entry for SHIPtember 2017.
About this creation
My SHIPtember 2017 entry - a Naja-class missile corvette.

These ships are small and fast, but pack a surprisingly large punch. With 36 launch tubes, each containing an Illudium Q-36 missile, and a pair of BFG9000 plasma cannons, they are well-suited to their primary role of supporting planetary invasions by the Imperial marines. Their weapons can also be used effectively in an anti-ship role, if necessary.

To allow for their oversized weapons and warp drive, their defensive systems had to be kept to a minimum - just a pair of shield generators and few point defense weapons. That compromise was considered acceptable given their typical "shoot and scoot" attack profile. The real Achilles heal of these ships, though, is their unreliable warp cores, which while having a remarkably high power density, have also led to a number of unfortunate "accidents," leaving a trail of unintentionally created worm holes strewn across the galaxy.

The Naja-class ships also have a hangar for a small shuttle and storage for 20 reconnaissance drones (several of which are usually popped out as corvette jumps out of the target sector, in order to perform bomb damage assessment remotely). Best of all, the ship's galley features a bar with more than 80 premium brews on tap, because a well-lubricated crew is always the key to success.

As some have noted, there is a definite Klingon/Romulan influence present in the design of this ship, but I also drew on other sources for inspiration (consciously or unconsciously), including X-wings, and even the Planet Express ship (with the fins on the tail section).















And here are a few shots of the SHIP in space dock, where it can be re-supplied with everything it needs to stay combat ready, including, most importantly, beer.







Much better pictures can be found in my Flickr album.

Quoting Seaman SPb Good design! I liked how you showed the missile salvo.
Thanks. It took me a while to figure out how to make the missiles look right -- I didn't think that the typical "ice cream" trick for the exhaust plumes wasn't worked very well.

Quoting Doug Hughes Wow, this is super cool, I love the ship, and I agree that I can see all the influences on design you mentioned, though it is still solidly your own. Plus, what a sweet resupply station! SO MUCH BEER YUMMMMM!!
Thanks. You can't have too much beer. The only substitute for beer,... is MORE beer.

Quoting BATOH rossi Attractive and realistic design, as well as the re-supplied station. I suppose the beer is served cold ... nice job!
Thanks. The beer is definitely served cold,... and frequently!
