(description by commissioner)

Pictured above is the SSV Busan, the lead ship of the line in a new class of light attack cruisers, during a shakedown run past Jupiter in 2197.

Devised to eventually replace the aging Geneva-class workhorse of the Alliance Navy, this new cruiser was designed to serve alongside the fleet's heavier Norfolk-class and Veracruz-class ships as the mainstay cruiser. Like the Veracruz, the Busan-class's primary armament consists of the latest Thanix-based Mjolnir cannons instead of conventional mass accelerators.  Additionally, its designing heavily incorporates technology reverse-engineered or based on Reaper remains.

Though smaller than their elder Geneva cousins, the Busan-class ships have improved maneuverability and acceleration.  The intention was to make these as fast attack cruisers with greater numbers than the larger Veracruz-class dreadnought escorts.  The first planned batch of these ships were named after port cities including the Murmansk, San Francisco, Sevastopol and Ho Chi Minh City.

First off, I am a massive fan of the Mass Effect series and to see a new generation of Mass Effect ships created so nicely, and professionally, is very nice. I don't even really know where to begin really, I love everything about this ship... it's quite clearly a Systems Alliance Cruiser, so you nailed that, obviously. Am I wrong or do I detect a few things inspired by the Normandy? Notably the Engine design and the conning tower. I also like that to the fore of the ship there is, what appears to be, either a hanger bay or a hidden weapon emplacement, in my mind a quad barreled rotating (spinning) Thanix cannon. (all 4 projectiles spin together for increased accuracy, speed and, power)

I have seen many renders of Mass Effect vessels and most of them... fail to capture the style of the Alliance's designs, often having a lot of rounded edges and the lilke. This is great, and I look forward to seeing more like it in the future.

Glad to hear you like it :)
I'd love to return to this universe and do some other ships as well, so perhaps I will try something soon.
