This advanced destroyer class space ship has many weapon system built into it. Main super cannon is tucked into the bottom front. Side segmented panels hide the super charged missiles bays. It also has 2 additional turbo booster engines attached to each side of the body to provide extra speed and backup engine. There are no visible pilot window. But optics and special lenses are scattered around the ship that provide navigation and viewing assistance. The whole ship has many articulation parts and joints to provide extra flexibility during warp speed space travel or battle situation.
Here is a compilation of my 4 entries for the 'Create a Starship' contest for Eve Online. You can view each entry individually in my gallery.
I have chosen to work on a single ship class with a variation for each of the Eve online races. The classe is 'Escort Carrier'. Sub Capitals ships without jump drives. geared towards drones deployment or maybe even fighters and being mostly thought out for fleet support.
----------------------------Wiki - injection------------------------- Strix (pl. striges or strixes) was the Ancient Roman and Greek word for owl. In folklore it was considered a bird of ill omen that fed on human flesh and blood, a product of metamorphosis. The name is Greek in origin and means "owl" (the name of the genus Strix follows this meaning). -----------------------------------------------------------------------

*And the last one. Next 2 weeks i will be isolated from anything digital. So i wish all entrants inspiration and good luck in the contest. See ya!
Finally, my entry to the EVE Online competition is submitted (at last minute as always!).
My starship, named Daedalus, was based off of the Merlin class frigate (for those of you that are familiar with EVE) and was an attempt follow the design sensibilities already found throughout the Caldari Navy. On top of this I attempted to give it an iconic design, something that would fit its title as a navy flagship.
I'll include the written description from the piece here (due to its small font on the actual work):
Originally conceived as a flagship vessel, the Daedalus was intended to lead auxiliary attack groups against the numerous Gurista incursions along the Eastern Rim; its imposing and recognisable visage intended to intimidate the comparatively smaller pirate navy. After a large number of successful engagements, the Daedalus-class battlecruiser, having proved its worth, was transferred to the much larger primary fleets, filling a fast-attack turret based offense role.
By YC106 however, the Daedalus had fallen out of use, in part due to the surge in production of the Ferox and Drake class battlecruisers. Their upgraded missile systems and tank-based role in battle, by this point, were favoured over the offensively capable but defensively weak Daedalus. In time it was almost completely absent from the Caldari Navy, with the few remaining vessels left fulfilling political roles as private, diplomatic transports.
After the Gurista involvement with the Innovaatio Varustukset Corporation in YC109 and the resulting kidnapping of one of the coporation scientists, it was recognised that Nugoeihuvi's Internal Security division were deploying a number of Daedalus-class vessels in their search for the missing scientist and his pirate captors.
Recognised by the Caldari Navy for its high-risk, high reward combat effectiveness, this security operation signalled the return of the Daedalus to active fleet status.
The ship was designed in Google Sketchup, given a simple lighting render and then textured in Photoshop. All space work and graphics were also designed in Photoshop.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my entry and good luck to all who entered.
