Because I got an idea as I was drifting off to sleep last night, I had to put these two together...

Originally based off the Budeia class gunstar, which itself was an evolution and expansion of the E-class gunstar, the Fleet ordered several Hermes and Hades class hulls with the armament carried by the parent design, the Budeia. Additional weapons were added that greatly expanded the class' combat capabilities, not the least being 4 seven heavy missile launchers. What isn't visible from the top and side views is the additional pair of turrets and pair of anti-missile systems that are on the ventral hull between the engines.

For completeness...here is the Hermes/Hades evolution tree.

These are the original Earth Union drone ships that Canis drew almost 9 years ago. I’m not sure what his inspiration for the Ba’alat class was, though.

During a planning session at Harvest House Foods' yearly long range strategy conference, one of the directors asked whether it was possible - legally and physically - for an Aphaea's Harvest class agro-ship to host a group of scouts for two weeks so that they could learn how space based agriculture worked. The ships weren't designed to carry many passengers, a couple dozen at the most, and for a small group on an infrequent basis, however, it could be made to work. Legal and Operations didn't have any objections and Marketing saw it as a great way to build some PR and have an expense write-off if the cost of passage was donated.

Once a month, on one of three ships, a two week "field trip" was hosted and became one of the signature public outreach projects of the company. However, others started asking if they could take part and what had been an inquiry here or there soon became a statistically noticeable number of requests. During her refit, Aphaea's Harvest was had her dome supports modified to add two, 3 meter decks under the dome itself. These decks contained quarters, restaurants, duty free shops, a full hospital, and many of the amenities of a cruise liner or long range transport. The plan was to offer gardening classes and agronomy studies both to schools and interested individuals. An urban family could now learn how to garden, learning techniques that would suit high density living, while vocational-technical schools could send students to get hands' on experience.

Within the first year, Harvest House realized that they had a winner. Originally, they thought that it would be mainly vo-tech schools that would form the bulk of the passengers carrier, but it was people who wanted a different vacation. Two more ships were taken in hand and modified during the program's second year, and three more during the third, fourth, and fifth years of operation.

People would sign on to learn how to garden or farm for two week or four week cruises, or longer two, three, or four month "expeditions". One nice perk of being on a cruise or expedition was that those taking part were able to take home some of the food that they had grown since each ship was fully equipped to preserve the harvest.

I was doing some clean up on some existing designs to make things consistent and am looking for some opinions...The Tisiphone (Nemesis) had the oversized launch tubes and I've made a couple changes on the Block 2 (which would be the same on the Block 3, except for the wider pods). The first image is the base Block 2. The second image is the Block 2A with 20 launch tubes for fighters and 1 launch tube for Rocs. The third image is the Block 2B with 15 launch tubes for fighters and 3 for Rocs.

Thoughts?

I’d go with the 2nd design; more fighter tubes would allow for faster deployment, the Rocs can just go out the front.

Cool, thanks!

The thinking with the three tubes for the Rocs is that the Union uses Rocs more aggressively than the Colonies use the Raptor. However, they can use the flight decks as well.
