This I would call a C.A.M.P.P.S. (Colony and Military Permanent Presence Ship).

My idea is that they are built for a one way push to some new area where they are parked and parted permanently.
I imagine that the 16 pods (the chain of chambers in the cut-out corners) are the essential living areas: greenhouse, med bay, barracks, etc. which can be set individually or strung together with connecting tunnels in an atmosphere where full time cover from the environment is a must.

The ship contains a large supply of essential foodstuffs, medicine, weaponry, and heavy equipment needing to establish a new home.

Ever bit of it is broken down for use. Every nut and bolt. Every coil of wire and tubing. Even the engines are converted into fusion power plants. The plating and heavy guns are used to build and arm the fortification wall erected around the new settlement.
Home sweet home. Tell your girl goodbye, or convince her to come too, because you ain't coming back.

Yeah that's a good idea. Similar thing was done with the Conestoga in Enterprise series (season one but can't recall the exact name of episode) - the ship was built in a manner that made it easy to disassemble and then form a settlement out of it. It was nice seeing actual parts of the vessel as houses, hangars and such.

This I had to say is one of the best space combat vessel designs I have ever seen, in terms of practicality that is:

A single, cigar shaped hull design instead of modules connected by joints or wings, no windows (windows are structural weaknesses, as Legion from Mass Effect series would say), and if I'm guessing it right, a very cost-effective weapon system with a giant energy beam cannon at the nose and what appears to be four railguns/coilguns at the sides, and I presume lots of missile silos, rather than countless small guns and turrets, making this command vessel similar to the historical dreadnought. Last, but not least, no visible command bridge unlike Star Trek and Star War vessels (which could be blown off and decapitate the vessels in one go). And this thing is a battlestar to boot, too, if those openings next to the beam cannon are hangers and short runways.

The only issue I could find are the inward facing angular surfaces, which could become shot-traps for missiles and kinetic weapon projectiles that would enhance damage to the ship, but due to the relatively small number of them, it's a minor problem.

Have I got any of this wrong?

Thanks :) As for the build of the ships, there is no beam cannon on the front - it's a sort of trek-like deflector that opens up hyperspace "windows". There are tons of big cannons though, and they're equally powerful. Beam weapons were on a different ship, but it was much smaller and needed extra power to handle bigger threats (it actually fits in one of the four frontal bays).

So the FTL system is also modified to become a defense system? Interesting, it's just like some of the ships from the Perry Rhodan universe.

No no, FTL is just FTL :) Defense systems are mostly big cannons that blow up stuff before it hits you.

Yeah, that was the commissioner's idea and it seems to work in such big ships - it seems bigger and more complex that way.

Very nice, it uses the zero g of space to allow multiple starting strips around itīs core. Crafty :D

Thanks :) At first I didn't even think about it, but somehow that came in naturally once I started adding details.

In zero-g, wouldn't strips be redundant? A single rcs burst would let you take-off. I like that this design isn't based around some imaginary plane, though, and that there's no real "up" to it, unlike Star Destroyers and such. It looks like it could really take off the surface of a planet like a rocket.

Adding onto Herry's statement, they can also assist in a launch with a catapult launch system, or secure an incoming vehicle with a magnetic bearing hook.

The strip serves more as a measure for traffic safety, giving starting and landing ships a direction, an orientation.
