Wow! Just found this site a day or two ago. Simply amazing. The level of detail put into this artwork is unreal. I must admit I’m curious, though. Why only Imperial ships? Not a fan of the Alliance/New Republic ships? I did notice the Nebula and Endurance, though admittedly they’re the most “Imperial styled” NR ships. Not complaining at all, though.

Curves might be harder to do, and Imperial ships just look better, IMO. I think Ansel feels the same – IDK, though.

Plus, besides various Mon Cal designs, most of the Alliance’s capital craft are ex-Imperial & even CIS anyway. Cripes, the heaviest NR ships in use during the now-unofficial New Jedi Order/Vong War era were a pair of captured Executors (Guardian & Lusankya).

I’ll concede that. It’s not as if they don’t have ships though. There are more than a few interesting and iconic ships associated with The Alliance and NR. Mon Cals, Nebulon-B’s (and yes I know they were originally Imperial ships), Viscounts, Bothan Assault Cruisers, CR90’s, Quasar Fires, plus a large collection of snubfighters.

True enough re: more NR-affiliated systems contributing to the fleet later on, though never quite to the same level as Ackbar’s people. Makes you wonder just where & how they socked away sufficient shipyard space to refit & crank out cruisers after openly flouting the Empire. Automated ex-CIS facilities, perhaps? At any rate, that necessity-driven variety’s one reason I maintain a soft spot for the pre-Episode 7 Alliance. Who else lets you visualize a star dreadnought with an MC80 support screen?

What’s she called?

Fractal, I want to call this baby the Legator-class Light Frigate. Or the Auxilia-class, but that breaks the -tor naming convention.

I can’t put my finger on why really, but I kinda wish the upper hull sorta…overhung, or overshadowed the lower hull. I wish I could tell you why, it’s just a good image in my head. That aside, I like the design. Thats seems like a lot of guns for such a small ship. Then again, with SPACE MAGIC power sources you can basically do anything you want right?

Just for reference, this puppy’s apparently a bit longer than a Nebulon-B, albeit with rather more evenly-distributed volume, and trades most of that space’s fighter/shuttle/troop-carriage potential for thrust & reactor power. And according to the last bit of fluff-text I read, Nebulons pack about two dozen guns & the same number of alphabet fighters…somewhere.
