The first ships of the Drone Collective to make contact with the human race. The drone collective are a bit of an enigma, even to their close allies. What is known of them is that they are all were originally the onboard repair system for an ancient race's armada. They were designed to maintain the ships and continue their operation no matter what. Eventually, crews died off over the course of a war. The repair systems continued to maintain the ships. Soon, the armada had begun to automate itself to continue normal ship operation without a crew. What became of this ancient race is unknown, but their ships continue to fly through space as each ship of the drone collective is built around pieces of one of the ancient's original ships. It seems to be a remnant of their original programming that they cannot command or build a ship if it does not have a piece of their creator's ship as its base. The ships are very different from the original ship; because it does not have a living crew, the ships are stripped of life support systems and other crew-oriented facilities.

The Scout is a multi-role capital ship equivalent to a battleship, though its design is more exploration oriented. As such, it is equipped with a production facility to create Worker-class drones to build and gather as well as the ability to carry and produce a complement of Warrior-class fighters.

Length: 670 meters
Width: 320 meters
Height: 88 meters

8 Collective capital missile arrays.

Other equipment:
-Resource processing and production facilities

This has been one of my first semi-successful attempts at UV mapping a ship. The nature of Collective ships works with this type of texture I found, though I might want to recolor them.
