      Leviathan Class Battle Dreadnought
      Even though the Deadalus class has proven a major success, the dramatic increase of enemies has forced Earth into the need to develop a somewhat more potent ship. The new design is to be deployed by itself and so must be able to handle itself like a real ship of the line. The Leviathan class battle dreadnought is to be used much like the Asgard used to use their Beliskener class motherships-to exert Earth’s power on a trouble spot and handle multiple enemies with ease. (The design I had in mind is something like the human battle cruisers from Star Craft)

      Production run: Lead ship Leviathan-operational
      Andromeda-operational
      Balance of Judgement-operational
      Ascendant Justice-under construction
      Resolution of Hector- under construction
      Foe Hammer -under construction
      In Amber Clad -under construction
      Minimum 3 more ships planned-names to be added

      Specs:

      Type: Rapid Response FTL warship

      Power: Asgard reactor
      Tau’ri Mark II Naquadah generators

      Engines: Tau’ri reverse engineered ion engines
      Asgard hyperdrive(improved)
      Anti-gravity wave generators

      Defensive Capabilities: Asgard shields
      Point defence missile system
      Point defence rail gun network
      Disrupter Wave generators
      12 F-302 Space fighters

      Offensive capabilities: Forward offensive rail gun(x10 the size of a Deadalus Main Rail gun)
      x20 missile launch tubes(10 missile each)
      -used to launch Mark VIII Naquadah enhanced nuclear missiles
      Hellfire II orbit to surface missile system
      x 10 Naquadriah enhanced nuclear missiles available
      x50 Sharpshooter II “Shield Busters” available(prototype)

      Other technologies: Asgard long range sensors
      Standard Asgard transporters
      Asgard transporter wave technology
      Communications Dampening equipment

      Note: The Sharpshooter II “Shield Busters” are non-nuclear missiles which utilise a technology derived from ancient drones which allows them to penetrate shields.

        Midway-operational
        Harbinger- operational
        Prosecutor-operational

          Those are some of my old designs. Will update with more ships soon.

          btw some of the designes u guys have done are awesome-I especially love the Abydos-it's doable, needed and very well thought out. Joshua definately gets green for this-P.S. The drawings were exellent.



          I loved the f302B as well. Section31 also gets green.

            Believe it or not there is another thread on this topic, there are a whole eleven pages of ship designs. I dug up the thread to try to find my old post but got lazy so here: http://forum.gateworld.net/showthrea...th%27s+Defense

              I am aware of that thread, however it's gone on for a veery long time and noone will want to read through 11 pages b4 they get to the actual posting. It's time to start fresh, with new ideas. There have been some very good ones so far.

                ^__^ Thank you, all. I thought that the Abydos might be, well... Too dull, as compared to the bigger ships. But, ship-design is about more than just size, engines, and weapons.

                Originally, I envisioned the Abydos as a space-faring version of the DD(X)-class destroyer, as shown here:


                DD(X)

                DD(X) From Above

                DD(X) At Night

                As you can see, it's sharp, angular design is geared towards stealth and simplicity of construction. It rides low in the water and is built with a variety of radar, heat, and sound negating materials, further enhancing it's low-observability. Since this is a new ship design, and several test hulls have been built by the Navy, it seemed the most likely candidate for the foundation for a space-faring starship built by the USN.

                The "pilothouse" (the superstructure) on the Abydos' final design is supposed to be almost an exact replica of the pilothouse on the DD(X). Rather than having a helicopter hangar at the back of the pilothouse, however, I felt that making multi-purpose bays on the underside of the ship would make the ship relatively cheaper, since you would be able to use the same two bays for everything, from weapons drops to shuttle deployment.

                Upon further reflection, incorporating the DD(X)'s Peripheral Vertial Launch System (PVLS) into the Abydos would also save money on R&D. This new system keeps missile launchers in the outer sections of the hull, and spaced apart so as to prevent a catastrophic explosion if the ship is hit in it's missile bays. If the missiles are not all grouped together in one place, the ship has a better chance to survive a direct hit.

                PVLS Diagram

                The Navy has already developed practical rail gun technology-Nowhere as advanced as Stargate's rail guns, but rail guns nevertheless, which the DD(X) is intended to employ. Ergo, again, the DD(X)'s basic technologies are better suited to being transferred to space-borne use. Obviously, converting a water-based ship into a starship is costly, expensive, and well, stupid. But the basic design and technology can be utilized without having to come up with an entirely-new vessel.

                It would be cool if someone could convert this idea into a 3D model, once the final design is established, as I do not have access to 3D art software. But, that's up to you guys. I would be happy just if someone used my idea for a ship in a fanfiction or RPG (with permission of course).

                Anyway, I'll be posting my revised design and technology of the Abydos in this thread for a while. If anyone would like to make suggestions or submit an idea to be included in the ship's final design, you are free to do so. ^__^ We could make this something of a forum project, if you guys wanted to.

                  Because of the on going threats of the Ori, The Wraith, and Baal, Earth has designed a new class to be use as a mothership. It is dubbed MS-301 Posieden.

                  Two years since the construction of the Deadalus and Oddessy BCs, Earth constructed this ship. It is based of the studies of Ha'taks given to use by the Free Jaffa Nation, captured Hive Ships, and Ancient designs found on the Atlantian Repository of Knowlegde.

                  EM Wave Anti Ship/Missile Shield (all Earth and friendy-ship equiped with shielding)
                  Ancient Shielding
                  Steel Reinforced Double Trinium Hull
                  Offensive Weapons

                    ... Um... Have you heard of overkill?

                    Besides, where could you BUILD this thing?!

                      It is a mothership and all nations on Earth plus the Asgard help in construction. Only a few would be built.

                        Even Gou'ald motherships weren't this big... This is essentially building our own version of Atlantis. Why would we need to build something like that?

                          Because Atlantas got owned by the Wraith in season 1.

                            Bigger does not translate to better. This is a monster. This is simply ridiculous.

                              I disagree. Imagine Earth has to go up against the entire Wraith or Ori Armada with the Oddessy and Deadalus. They would get they're ass kicked. With this, they would stand a chance.

                                Hey! Daedalus was doing pretty well against the Wraith Armada. If they hadn't found a way to jam our Asgard beaming technology, we'd have finished them off.

                                As for the Ori, I doubt we could build something this big in time.
