Did you know that, according to one of the Omega's original designers, the rotating sections was originally supposed to have hangars that shot out Starfuries with centrifugal force like Babylon 5, the red hatches were meant to fire, and those giant cannons on the bottom were meant to fire "Gigaton-class mines"?

Well I'm not familiar with the tech of Babylon 5 but it's good to know :) I actually mixed up some elements on my first go at the render :D

Well, I must confess I was not aware of it either until recently - it's even on the Wikipedia page. 

 

The ideas are really interesting and I would have liked to have seen them done.  But the design intention was made by the group who was in charge of animation before the Third Season, so it never got off the drawing board.

did not know that the rotation section was the launch bays/hangars for the Star Furies. 

That makes sense, you want to launch those fighters quickly as possible.

Instead, they used it as a crew & command module as these ships didn't have anti-gravity technology yet.

would love to see one done in this format!

That is what they were originally designed for.

Nice work, i miss the old Babylon 5 Series, one thing though, the particle beams on the omega destroyers were always located directly below the main guns at the front of the vessel (unless in that scene they are being hit by a beam weapon)

Yep it doesn't seem that popular, which is a shame, since they are pretty cool and don't require much of redesigning to fit in with modern vehicles.

Comparatively wimpy to the other ships in the series, actually. Rotating sections for artificial gravity make for easy targets.

Now a Minbari WarCruiser was something to be afraid of. :nod:

Minbari subscribe to a different aesthetic. One of the things B5 did well was give different races different motivations and cultures.

Very nice once again. Well done. Love the choice of colours on the weapons.

I really like how you have a ever so faint blur on your backgrounds. Drags the eyes into the detail.

Thanks :) The whole scene was a lot more vibrant in the base render but I toned it down so that it looks more serious.

Certainly one of your most impressive pieces so far. I'll go for the 3D pieces later, but for now I need 2D perspectives for the codex. ;)

Nice render. Always wondered why'd a warship require such vulnerable structures as the rotating gravity sections, though.

Earth Alliance ships of the Babylon 5 Universe didn't have anti-gravity technology.  they did did try to obtain this technology from other Alien worlds and they refused to sell it to EA.

Its why later EA ships have rotating sections to provide gravity.  I think the Omega class was the first to have this.

I am familiar with Babylon 5 lore. It just bothers me that someone  would include such parts in a ship-to-ship-combat ship in the first place.

Most EarthForce ships don't have rotating sections - the Explorer class, explicitly not a combat vessel, and the Omega, which is the most advanced ship Earth has prior to joining the Interstellar Alliance and debuted after the Earth-Minbari war, are the only two we see. The other EarthForce ships that we see, like the Nova class (an Omega class without its rotating section) and the older Hyperion class, are purely zero-g.

Yes, and they aren't soldiers doing combat and patrol duty in an actual warship where they need to be at the peak of their performance. The ISS astronauts also have to go through months of training again once they're back on the ground to combat the muscle loss and other detrimental effects of long exposure to zero gravity. It's a lot more economical to minimize these effects by a rotating gravity section rather than have thousands, possibly tens of thosuands of crewmembers across the fleet be unavailable for duty for months after deployment.^^

With extensive training and exercise, and not without long-term medical impact when they return to Earth, yes... remember these things are crewed with military personnel who may be expected to fight on a planet's surface or pull high Gs in a combat ship or aircraft at a moment's notice. The Omega class destroyer can theoretically operate for years without having to rotate its crew. It's also canon that the Omega class can be blown to hell with fires on all decks and the habitat section will continue to rotate. Fragile they are not.
