To begin with, it's a gorgeous design, thru and thru. Lots of nice little details that are both pleasing to the eye and capture the imagination of any scifi fan.
The unfortunate departure in the design however comes not from the design itself, but the chosen point of existence in the timeline. Certainly a ship of this size would be welcome to the SW's universe, but the silhouette is a striking departure from anything of the era. The 45 degree swoop of the wings are sleek and elegant, and the rounded turrets look fully functional and deadly, but neither of these elements hint back to a unified and functional fleet design. To elaborate, the wings were perhaps meant to be reminiscent of bombers and interceptors, but again, lack any design element that would bind the two together. Similarly, Imperial turrets are bold and blocky, while these bear muted planes.
The pallet used and defining lines are clearly Star Wars, however this is a design I feel is better suited to the likes of the Old Republic.
What do you think?

I love it but would't the upwaard wings reduce the arc of fire? Unless you balance it with greater manoeuvrability of course...

Thanks :) The wings don't really go upward very high, and turrets only have a 90 degree arc of fire, so it's more helpful for defense against lower-positioned units.

I think it fits into the timeline you mentioned and I think it fits in line with the Imperial Customs Corvette and the Customs Frigate ([link] & [link])

What's the scale of it?
AdamKop Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I'm not sure exactly, but it should be around 500-600 meters in length. Surely smaller than the typical ISD :)

Still big, still powerful. :D

This looks more like a design from the Great Galactic War (The Old Republic) era, particularly the Sith Empire.
Palpatine's Empire prefers brute force and menace in appearance, while the Sith Empire incorporated these and a sort of elegance very present in this Corvette.

Hmmm yeah I guess that the Palpatine's Empire is more about controlling things with fear, but it's actually surprising that there were no other ships introduced, ones that would bet able to take on all the medium-sized Rebel units. Hell, the Blockade Runner should be an indication that something's wrong with their defences :D
