BattleStar Galactica Strikestar AGENOR by AdamKop BattleStar Galactica Strikestar AGENOR by AdamKop
Concept drawing of my custom battlestar galactica-themed ship.
Compared to the Galactica, this is a much smaller vessel with the main focus put on being able to strike unalarmed enemy and retreat before it can be damaged.

Thanks :D It should be finished now, as I won't add point defense turrets, since the resolution of the original file is too small to add them with good details :P

I can see the fighterbay and the launch tubes, but no other point defenses?
I mean it's prolly too fast for bigger guns but it's a easy target for the fighters.

Other then that, a fitting design.

I wanted to include small guns but it would require a lot of drawing over small area so I just decided to hide them in insets on the side - they're right under the ship's name :)

I really like this as I can easily imagine it on a video screen next to Galactica and Pegasus. It "feels" the same on a variety of levels.

However, I'm wondering about the kind of fast strike and the relative size of the propulsion section of the vessel to the rest when compared to those two warships.

Is the fast strike supposed to be FTL or sublight? If FTL, I think it fits, as apparently an FTL drive can be quite small. On the other hand, if it is intended to be faster in sublight, shouldn't the proportion of the ship dedicated to engines be at least as much as the Battlestars?

Is it finished now or do you still need to add the guns. (or do they pop out of the hull?)

Oh yeah, didn't see those at first. Are they double barreled or four barreled? (that's probably the wrong term for it. :XD: lol)

I guess it would be something like quad-barrell, but these are only doubles :)

How would it be a quad-barrel if it's a double?

Interesting design, and going by the size of the hangar opening I'd say it's about half the size of one of Galactica's flight pods. Though I'm not sure what the point of a hangar on a strike ship of that size would be. It isn't large enough to carry much of an offensive Viper complement, and every fighter it carries takes away internal space that would be better spent on guns.

I hate being so critical because it's a beautiful design, but right now it strikes me as one of those (pre-)WW2 designs where somebody tried to mate a cruiser and carrier with the result being a ship that carries too few airplanes *and* not enough guns. :(

Yeah I understand those problems :) There will surely be enough guns on the ship, but fighters are an absolute must for me, as they would be vital to a lot of missions, as Cylons always use a lot of ships and weapons, and suicidal fighters would be a problem. Vipers could always take care of the small vehicles and provide clear path for bigger guns of the Eos. Since it's sci-fi, I can put enough firepower on the ship and keep the additional carrier features to a required minimum that will actually help in missions by providing more flexibility.

Yes, I understand the reasoning, especially within the setting of BSG. That being said, I've always been more of a "battleships in space" type of guy, so I just can't get rid of my bias against fighters. :p

I would preferred it on the underside of the chin

I understand :D It's hard to make everyone happpy I guess :P
I prefer the hangar on top, because the ship is rather flat and will have some weapons on the underside, with point defense turrets on top. I will make a Cylon design soon and that will have hangars and docking ports on the underside, so you might like it a bit more :D

I'm guessing, what, around eight Vipers and a couple of Raptors?

Cool looking ship. Is it mostly a strike carrier? Will we be seeing anything in the way of flak guns or anti-ship weaponry?

:iconadamkop:
AdamKop Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah it will have a small fleet of fighters, as it would rely more on the hit and run tactics. It will have some weapons though, I will add them later on.

Always good to see smaller designs also been made for BSG. This looks like quite a workhorse and the details on the front of the ships shows where you will head to with this ship. Looking forward to seeing more.

Yep I always like expanding the less popular areas for ships that would prove vital for a fleet to actually work. It's a fun design to work on but I guess it will take me at least a few hours as I want to make it look its size.
