Sweet looking Dominator. I can only imagine the work you could do in pen and ink.

Are the three holes at the tip of the ship (under what I’m assuming to be a secondary bridge of some sort) missile tubes? Or do they serve some other purpose?

What is the purpose of the added superstructure beneath the bridge tower? Is that to replace room within the ship that is now being taken up by the gravity well generators?

Looking at the side-by-sides with the standard ISP it looks like that bit of superstructure is all that’s left of what’s been taken away rather than being added.

Please, make Venator-class Star destroyer

Fantastic. New render and lighting setup looks very good. I’m really liking the new engine glow. Looks way better than that geometric shape you used some time back.

What’s next, boss? Another redux? Another murderwedge? I’d love to see more smaller ISD’s. Demolisher…Harrow…

But, whatever you want to make is fine with me.

The next redux I think Fractal is going to do would either be the Procursator, Altor, Impellor (And Compellor after that), or Secutor. I doubt that the Assertor will be next, but it will happen much later.

Would be interesting to see the Demolisher/Gladiator. Not sure about the Harrow.

Your work never fails to impress. Very nice redesign of the traditional Imperator to make room for the gravity well generators. However, I can’t help but wonder if the next logical step for the Empire might be to design a craft specifically for interdiction. Perhaps a small warship built around a single gravity well and featuring weapons emplacements only for defense. It would be the central vessel of a wolf pack with a few other support craft to do the fighting, such as a few frigates and maybe a single light destroyer. Another possibility is a sort of mobile battle… Read more »

I suggested something similar for Fractal’s Modified Imperial Customs Corvette. Instead of a dedicated hanger, you could have a series of plug-and-play modules for different mission configurations, like a mini modular task-force cruiser.

Arguments for/against multi-role vessels vs. specialized designs aside, one of those mission configs might be a gravity well projector and dedicated power supply.

Warship with gravity well and defensive armaments is practically this ship and to a lesser extent in regards to defense, the Immobilizer.

This type of design with a skeleton superstructure has been around for 20+ years, but this is the best one yet

I wonder what the tactical advantage of having multipe gravity well generators could be.
Would they work in unison to create one four times more massive gravity well? Would they spread out the mass shadow to form for example a line of four gravity wells? Or would they be used to cover different firing arcs?
And while whatever is being emitted from the generators obviously isn’t affected by the hull of the ship (at least not by the domes), can one generator aim through another generator?
Still working on a concept of what could be under the domes: https://countvertex.tumblr.com/

each sphere is a single hyperspace interdictor. so each ship of this type, can block 4 targets

Excellent work on this one as usual. In universe however I would have words with the designer. Sacrificed heavy guns, limited arc on those it has, and the Grav Well Projectors take up most of the hanger space. Basically wasting an ISD hull instead of making a purpose built Interdictor. Do you think that in universe this was more an early prototype for proof of concept or a regular ship they built multiple of>>
