I present the Triton:
Image

having seen this ship languish long in the abyss of time on SFM, I had the idea of seeing her fully realized when Luc volunteered his time on the Columbia.

she was brought to a state of partial completion by her original artist, Skeletor, and badly pixelated when I found her, and restored her original frame.

packing 24 main guns of a NAC rating of 5, and 8 main guns of an NAC 6 rating, plus numerous point defenses and anti ship/fighter missiles, this ship packs a potent punch, even when operating at long ranges, unsupported.

the Triton class has had a long storied history in the fleet, almost as long as the Galactica class battlestar.

sharing the same technology base, the Triton class is notable in having been modernized throughout the years, and the Triton herself served as testbed for the unique and quite potent networked computer systems on the Intruder class.

she carries the prototype version of Celestus class jump system, and it was on a routine endurance test that something went wrong, reports broadcasting from the ship indicate some kind of malfunction, while others indicate the ship being boarded by hostile forces, whatever the reason, her sudden disappearance left many shocked and confused.

her current whereabouts are unknown.
her status: presumed lost with all hands.

Wowwee!
Fantabulous!
Specfracktactular!
Amazing!

Just like in the movies or something.

Fighter and bomber launch tubes, lots of guns and missiles, a distinctive split between armored fore and aft hangar pods with a ribbed center, and in a larger scale too.

Two things:

How long did it take to do (or redo)?

Are the pod arms too thin for the size of the pod?

the redraw, if I remember correctly, took damn near 3 months, mind, this was in the midst of a bunch of computer problems, and the dial-up connection certainly did not help matters.

she was my very first re-draw, and as such was a gods damned royal pain, that said, seeing her here is an absolute joy, and the realization of a half-@$$ed idea.

she's actually at the same scale as the galactica, note her tubes, please.

I've had this ship for close to a year, and, without the timely assistance of Luc, this ship would have remained lost to the reaches of time.

Damn she looks frakking awesome. So she is the same size as Galactica. Wow I thought that she would be at least a little bit bigger than Galactica. Well great job, this ship looks frakking amazing.

FRAKKING AMAZING!

dont worry, at some point, she will receive an up-armor treatment.

shes the long dormant one on sfm guys, and she's finally done too.

if not for luc, she would have remained lost to the abyss of time

I've been lurking here for some time but now I've started to post, and I just felt I had to say this.

My first impression is that this ship is beautiful, but once I saw the bomber launch tubes I realized, it's so cool it's sexy. That is a SEXY ship! (... to far?) lol, Anyway I love it. I was on a role play and while I don't have a ship that this could work as just yet, I would love to use it eventually (with your permission and credit to you of course.) It looks like a Dreadnought to me.


A thing I was thinking about for the 2 arms holding each pod, because the pods do look heavy. Maybe instead of adding a third regular arm you could add 2 smaller support struts at the front and back. These would retract just like the large arms but wouldn't hold any halls or anything like that, they'd just be for structural purposes.

I do plan on instituting a refit, and the pod arms are on the list of planned retrofits.

those big tubes were meant for the MK VIII viper, and were installed on a number of older ships, easier and cheaper to retrofit an older ship with new technology and test it out, than a newer and more expensive ship.

with regards to the rp,
you'd need to secure permission from the original aritst on www.scifi-meshes.com, his name's skeletor. dont see why he would refuse, just ask first.

a sexy battlestar?! :shock:
now, thats the first time I've heard a battlestar called sexy, thank you.

note to all, dont forget to give credit to Luc, if not for him, this ship would never have been completed.

Long live the TRITON!!!!!!!!!!
