Frankly, I don't think she's really a cruiser. She looks more like a Combat Replenishment Ship, especially considering all the hatches along the three hulls and what appear to be cranes on top of them. The size is an estimate based on the observation that she's smaller than Galactica. As a result her guns are quite tiny compared to those on Galactica. There is some conflict as to her size. In the Ghost Fleet she's clearly smaller than Galactica, but at the beginning where Adama is arriving aboard Galactica she looks like she might be much bigger as the Gemenon Traveler is passing over her hull. That's only one scene though so I went with the preponderance of the evidence and went with the smaller size. The name location is pure guesswork since no name is visible anywhere.

She is an interesting ship to be sure.

I have to agree with you - she has way too many hangar hatches to be a Gunstar (IMHO). I could go with some kind of Landing or Assault Ship - maybe even an early Fighter Carrier of some type. But with all those hatches (again, IMHO) she would have too many weaknesses to be designed to slug it out with another large size warship.

I could also easily see the Replenishment ship as well. To work with a Fleet she would have to be pretty large as well.

As always, Great work on the drawing Boss.
:thumbsup

Well drawn from available imagery there!

Don't you think the that she's a little odd, in an in-universe aspect in using engine bell style exhaust nozzles a la space shuttle, the series artists could have made a little effort to make it look similar to other ships engine wise.

Maybe an older carrier-type warship called up for frontline service?

Or, if it's serving with the "Ghost Fleet" of supposed lost ships, it's been re-purposed from another function.

That's a pretty good point, 50Stone.

I would have to go with UNREPStar as well I am afraid, She would make a poor carrier considering the the use of such tactics as mass launches and emergency landings are somewhat standard in this universe.

Its a good bit of work on a poorly designed ship for this universe. A decent design, just one that seems almost...Andersonish in nature really.

Loki class mobile shipyard. Used to repair/produce large amounts of medium and light cruisers, and fighters. In the days before the battlestar these ships were vital to the colonial tactic of swarming basestars with dozens of cruisers, literally burying them in sheer numbers.

Like?

I can seee this being a cross between a mobile shipyard and unrep vessel. It might be designed to grab a disabled ship and jump it out of the combat zone.
