4 Jun 2020 Velox-class Star Frigate new 4K by Fractalsponge | posted in: Capital ship, Galactic Empire, Gallery, Star Wars | 15
I like this much better than the carrack. The carrack looks weird to me. The velox even carries starfighters
This ship looks like it took inspiration from the Halberd-class Destroyers in Halo. It has that sleek, arrow-like shape about it with a classic Star Wars aesthetic. Great work!
Love this design
What with armament of this ship?
6x dual medium TL
6x dual light TL
10x light TL / heavy laser combo
2x triple heavy ion
It seems extremely fast, but it would also take a massive amount of fuel. It’s also extremely heavily armed, and it looks like it would have a primarily anti-starfighter role. Because of the fuel issue, I can’t see it going on long-range missions. With all this, it must be a patrol/defense vessel.
Fuel volume is extremely poorly defined in SW. Even the mass of hypermatter might well be complex mass (hyperspace shifted).
Where can I go to find the biography/ specifications of your ships?
No coherent spec library, as far as I know.
Nevertheless there are places to go look at for that kind of stuff:
Threads on this site are easiest and closest.
SDN thread for somewhat more complete picture as it includes discussions that happened at the time of ship being designed, but it’s very long and can be iffy to navigate if you need something specific quickly.
Poking members of Discord server.
That’s for sure my favourite of Fractal’ design. I would love to read about it background, specs and histories in it in canon, it would be glorious!
You should make a book with all of your ship models in it with their states.
I would 100% buy it!
Sounds legally problematic, unfortunately.
Agreed, especially considering how protective Disney is of their IP. Now, if LucasFilm/LucasArts still owned the franchise, I’m sure it would be possible, and even likely. But now that Disney has their claws in it? Not a chance, sadly.
Maybe it would be possible if they sell the book as Legends content? Idk if something like that is in the realm of reality, would be really nice though
