Excalibur by Eclectixx Excalibur by Eclectixx
I haven't done an industrial concept design in a while. The brief for this piece stated that it must be a futuristic knife-shaped weapon, but didn't specify that it had to actually be a knife.

Named for its superficial resemblance to an ancient bladed weapon, Excalibur carves right through planets, asteroids, moons, and even small stars.

Using revolutionary and highly covert technology, Excalibur creates a sort of quantum "shield" around itself; in layman's terms, it warps physical space to create a sheath that is protected from physical objects. Projecting this space forward it can slice through any physical mass in its path, protecting itself and any other vessels within this field. The only physical obstacle to this ship occurs in super dense objects where the laws of space and time are affected; thus it must avoid such obstacles just like any other vessel.

Not only useful as a weapon, it also allows interstellar travel without the need to navigate around obstacles. Manufactured with a 24 karat gold skin to flaunt the exorbitant wealth of the civilization which designed it, Excalibur is the undisputed superpower of the entire charted galaxy.

It's interesting to see you take on something inorganic, yet use a similar amount of thoughtful consideration into it's design and background. What are the smaller 'ships' about, they almost have a drill-like design?

Thank you. I added more descriptive text to clarify because there was some confusion elsewhere as well; the ship projects a sort of quantum blade which does the actual carving, and any other smaller vessels near the ship are also contained within this protective field.

Cool, thanks for elaborating. I can't imagine this is a terribly peaceful race. :lol:
