              Here is something I threw together just to show that I am not entirely gone.

              It hearkens back to what I was saying about the Homeworld RTS games and my idea for a slightly different ship. This ship is meant to take advantage of the Linking and External Ship Building technologies that were presented in the game Homeworld: Cataclysm.

              Spoiler:
              These first images are of a rough version of the Component Frigate when it is by itself. The blue areas have to do with ship construction.




              This is seventy component frigates linked together to form a very nearly mothership class vessel with massive construction capabilities. As before the blue areas are where ships get built.




              What do you think? Good idea bad idea or just something that should not be pursued?

                  I quite like the idea.

                      Update on my Tauri long range science ship, I have called her the Athena as Athena was the greek god of wisdom. I plan for the ship to have extreamly strong shields to protect on long range missions, while it does have offensive systems its main tools are the vast arrays of sensors allowing the Athena to detect fleet movements and detect weak points in an enemies defence.

                      I created the vessel with the thought that the Tauri would probably send ships to search through the Ida and Pegasus Galaxies to search for Asgard and Lantean technology.

                      As ever I have produced exclusive renders for CASF.

                        Really liking this design... as i do all your ships....


                        Been fiddling with the F-303 again.... removed the back two missile racks and the wing cannons... replacing the latter with a radar dome and a comms spire..i've also shifted the tails a bit towards the nose of the ship

                          looks good as allways but i get the feelig that its huge it almost looks to be the size of an Aurora, but looks good!

                          I still think it looks very simple and i am a fan of the more complex detail designs that are out here!

                            If i'm honest... it's not meant to be a complex design... just something i bashed out over a few hours... then expanded on.

                              Oh, do you have any suggestions, or does the entire concept not interest you?

                              Thank you. Do you have any helpful suggestions to improve it?

                                Well, the conection's might go smoother with some joining arms on either side (like robotic hydrolic arms) And the blue glow would be better with a sort of pattern in the centre. The actual idea for what it is, is the reason I really like the idea.

                                After ten minutes of science homework, I decided to try and make a substance that would be good for starship hull surports. The result: Nahquidah/Merc./Iron (merc./iron is already a very strong substance (manganese steel) with Nahquidah melded to the partical structure I thought it might increase strength and flexibilty (smart metals, but smarter) So an impact of heat, would make the metal reform into its original structure.

                                (I also feel rather, smart arsed )
