    I have a starship idea, it's not a human ship, and not particularly original, but here goes. It's an Asgard light cruiser. It uses the same hull configuration as an O'Neill class, but is only about a quarter the size of an O'Neill, so around the size of a Daedalus class ship. Because it is so much smaller it only uses one neutrino-ion generator. Obviously the weapons and shields are not quite up to the power of an O'Neill class, but are sufficient for most engagements. And like most Asgard ships it has fancy doohickeys and gizmoes.
    With the Beliskner class reaching its operational age limit and the defeat of the replicators, the Asgard high command realized that a new type of ship would be needed to patrol their territory. Obviously most conflicts could be resolved without the enormous firepower an O'Neill could bring to bear, in fact usually the Asgard simply needed to make an appearance and resistance ended. So the Asgard decided to go small (but not too small, we all know the Asgard need their legroom). Being the pragmatists they are, and also a rather uncreative bunch, the Asgard simply took the specs for an O'Neill and sized them down, the design process took all of 30 seconds. Thus the Walter Harriman class light cruiser was born. Why name a ship after Walter you ask, well why the hell not?
    Not taking the threat of the Ori seriously, and being otherwise engaged in fixing their pesky reproduction problems (of course it's a problem, how do you tell a male Asgard from a female Asgard? They have no idea either!), but still needing to offer token assisstance to their Tau'ri allies, the Asgard high command dispatched a Walter to take part in the battle at the supergate. Having not told anyone of the Tau'ri that they had designed a new starship class, the Asgard commander of the ship had to field fairly annoying queries from both humans and Jaffa. Questions like, "why is your ship so small?", or "Isn't an O'Neill class ship supposed to be like five times the size of a Hatak?" Unfortunately before the Asgard commander could answer these queries the supergate opened, and ..well you know the rest.
    Hehe, I like this, made me laugh. Though am I the only one who thinks Camelot's scalling was actually pretty accurate?

              I like the med ship but have no idea why its that big, unless we are planning to give full medical care to every galaxy and every person simultaneously..

                  Spoiler:


                  A Lucian Alliance Ha'tak gives the Thor a bad day. I know you shouldn't be able to see the shields like that, but that's the only way I could do it. And it looks pretty cool.

                      Thanks! You can download the Ha'tak at scifi-meshes.com. It's in .3ds format, so while in googlesketch you go to file, import, and select the file. If anybody wants me to I can ask the creator of the model if they mind if I put it on 3d warehouse, since when you import it it comes without textures, and I've done textures in googlesketch.

                      As for the shield, you go to materials, library, assorted, and select pool water. Then click edit material, set the opacity to about 40, and change the color to whatever you want. Then make a sphere and apply the edited pool water texture.

                          I can also put the shield on 3d warehouse, so people can just download it and edit the color and size and stuff.

                                the daedalus took an obscene amount of time, feel free to edit it as it could be improved on the exteriror.

                                i'm currently working on a aurora class to similar standards if u want to help out here is an older model
