I.N.S.S. MacArthur in orbit around New Caldonia – From Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s novel The Mote in God’s Eye.

This is my own visualization of MacArthur, an evolved representation of the ship I saw in my minds-eye on my first reading of the novel – for detail on my design see my image: I.N.S.S. MacArthur

Yuo have a whole bunch of smaller turrets on the nose, all in groups of two. Are those point defense, or some kind of sensors?

Also, extremely nice remake. Fits modern esthetics a lot better than the original, and I hope you do more of these Mote pictures.
