    Original Starship Design Thread

    It's been a while since I've seen a ship thread on here. So anyone who has designs/ideas for battleships, support craft or fighters post them here. Common sense rules apply. I don't want to see anything like this:

    "My ship will be 10km long. It can carry 300 Death Stars in it's hangar(or 3 Billion f302s and 500 000 jumpers). It's equiped with 4 million Trinity cannons and 5 Gazillion drones. It's powered by 500 ZPM;s and 5 black holes and 1 Hamster in a threadwheel. It's captained by Captains Kirk,Picard, JAneway, Sisko, Archer, Hunt and Keys. It is also captained by Vin Diesel. It has two A.I.'s-Romie(from Andromeda) and Cortana.
    It also carries 1 million Spartan II super soldiers, 3 million tanks and 11Billion nukes. It's shields can withstand the combined force of 10 supernovas every second. It's hyperdrive allows it to get to Atlantis from Earth in exactly 0.00004 nanoseconds. ANd naturally it's main weapon can destroy the UNiverse. "

    Please in the name of all that is holy,logical and scientific-don't post things like that!I've seen way too many.

    ALso I'm thinking more about ships in the near future than say 30 years from now.

          Why not???

          Just kidding.

          I kinda thought are ships were similar to Asgard design (without the ion drive thingies). I was thinking a ship more along the lines of Starlancer...

          The A.N.S. Washington



          But maybe it's just cuz I'm a fan of the Starlancer and Freelancer games.

              My ship will be able to kick your ship's ass!

              Why?

              Because it's named the USS Chuck Norris.

                      ~Historical and Technical Notes

                      Commander R. Doyle Gillespie had been retired from the United States Navy for nearly five years when the job offer was made. His expertise in nuclear engineering, submarine and naval operations, and covert ops experience had made him the ideal candidate for a new, secret program, code-named Abydos. The commander, briefed by General O'Neill on what the program would entail, thought this was a long-overdue retirement prank.

                      Until he saw the Stargate. After that, he was more than eager to take the job.

                      With the USAF beginning construction of the new BC-303 class starships, the United States Navy and Army began to lobby Congress to get in on the action. Why should the Air Force be the only service helping to defend the planet? Naval contractors were already involved in constructing new Daedalus-class starships, but the USN wanted their own space project. While the Navy received a contract to build and manage their own F-302 squadrons, the President felt that the US submarine force was ideal for starship operations, and authorized the US Navy to begin work on a new, small, stealthy-class of starship that would function as a relatively cheap counterpart to the larger, more powerful and expensive Daedalus.

                      Using technology developed in the USN's DD(X) program (which was building a new, stealthy destroyer to replace the Arleigh Burke-class vessels in the future), Project Abydos designed a simple, stealthy starship, largely with existing, Earth-based technologies. Trinium, being rather difficult to procure in large quantities, was mainly directed to the BC-303 program. The Abydos project, instead, used a trinium-steel alloy for much of the first ship's construction, and reinforced several key areas with trinium itself. The addition of reactive armor, developed for the DD(X) program, would grant the new ship nearly the same survivability as a BC-303, but at half the cost. With access to Al'kesh cloaking devices traded from the Free Jaffa Nation for tretonin, the ships would serve well in hit-and-run attacks against hostile forces and ambushes, as well as covert surveillance missions.

                      Crammed mainly with weapons, engines, and supplies, the Abydos (or X-308) had slightly more internal space than a Los Angelus-class attack submarine for her crew. Still, the vessel's accomadations are excellent, owing to the small crew compliment needed to run her. With engines and reactors taken directly from the BC-303 program, the Abydos is a very over-powered starship in real and hyperspace, easily capable of keeping pace with an Al'kesh at sublight speeds, and WAY faster than any Gou'ald ship in hyperspace.

                      Her considerable missile armament allows her to fire a barrage of 16 missiles in one salvo, giving her a great "knock-out" punch capability against even Gou'ald supermotherships. However, in a pitched battle, without reloads for her VMLS cells (like the BC-303), the Abydos suffers the very real possibility of running out of ordance in the middle of an engagement. Her rail gun armament, though impressive, is geared primarily towards engaging ships in her weight-class, again, like the Al'kesh. Though new naquada-tipped shells for rail guns are available, the Abydos is simply not capable of engaging large enemy forces on her own. The tactic, therefore, is to engage in shoot-and-cloak attacks, whittling down an enemy's fleet until reinforcements arrive.

                      Given her size and purpose, the Abydos does not carry fighter support of any kind, though she can refuel and re-supply a few F-302s in an emergency. Her lower bays are reserved for small support craft (such as a Tel'tac), additional weapons, or soldiers. She can deliver a sizeable force of troops into combat, her ventral-mounted railguns built for supporting such actions, or ring/transport them down enmass, only coming down above ground to provide firesupport.

                      The first vessel, the Abydos herself, was commanded by now-Captain R. Doyle Gillespie on her first shakedown cruise, shortly following the destruction of the Prometheus by the Rand Confederation. She was soon tasked with supporting SG-8 and SG-4 while the teams were under attack by a Prior of the Ori, and in her first combat action, with her weapons and shields gone thanks to the Prior, simply landed on top of him, killing him instantly. Suffering some minor damage in the attempt, she was nevertheless repaired and sent to investigate the disappearance of several Stargates by Ba'al. She was too far away to render aid to SG-1 when they were captured by the Lucian Alliance, but did succeed in intercepting and destroying a kassa shipment bound for Chulak.

                      With the threat of the Ori, the US Navy and Air Force have switched into full-scale production of both Daedalus and Abydos class starships, with roughly a two-to-one ratio of the BC-303 to the DC-308 (formally X-308). The United Kingdom and France have both been given the plans to the Abydos-class destroyer, and hope to build two vessels each by next year. Russia, preferring the BC-303 design, nevertheless have been given access to the plans in case they change their minds. The Abydos's sister ships, the Memphis and the Delphi, are expected to be completed by the end of the year, while a fourth vessel, the Oracle, is currently being laid down at the Newport News submarine construction facility.

                      (Please note, this is just the first version of the design. I've been drawing and re-drawing this ship for weeks in my notebooks, but as I have no 3D art programs, I'm basically stuck with MS Paint. Hopefully the ship doesn't look too bad...)

                        Should a starship face imminent destruction from a disaster or attack, the crew would flee to the escape pods. The captain would then set a course for the nearest habitable planet if possible and abandon ship. The escape pods are capable of FTL travel but for short ranges only. They are equipped with a subspace beacon to alert friendly ships.

                          Designation: F-302B – “Bird of Prey”

                          Description: My fighter plane is called the F-302B – “Bird of Prey”. This spacecraft is an
                          upgrade of the standard F-302. This project codenamed Project Rainmaker. It is made possible through the collaboration of a dozen different countries including Canada, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Russia, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Australia and the United States.

                          Primary contractors included in this project are mostly American based but English, French, and Canadian aerospace companies were involved in as well. Project Rainmaker was formed in the summer of 2005 and the first working prototype will be ready by late 2012, the purpose of this project is to address original F-302’s weakness – it carriers a limited number of weapons. The F-302B counters this problem with the installment of an internal bomb bay and the Striker particle cannon.

                          Class: Interstellar Fighter

                          Role: Multi-role Fighter

                          Design: 1.75 times the size of an F-302.

                          Crew: -1 pilot
                          -1 co-pilot

                          Hull:
                          Carbon Ceramic 17 – an alloy consisting of:
                          -50% carbon
                          -7 % tungsten carbide
                          -28% trinium
                          -15% Naquadah.

                          Hard points on the airframe are made of solid trinium to sustain hypersonic flight.

                          Sensors:
                          -Active Radar
                          -LIDAR
                          -FILR

                          Shields: None

                          Cloak: None

                          Propulsion:
                          Ramjet Air Breathing Engines: This engine is a cousin of the Scramjet Engine used by the Aurora Hypersonic Bomber, it has a maximum speed of Mach 15 (17 874 km/h).

                          Scramjet AeroSpike Engines: Fueled by super refined mix of hydrogen
                          and methane, the Scramjet AeroSpike engines sustain a maximum speed of Mach 25 (29 790 km/h)

                          Generation 2 Hyperdrive: This Hyperdrive engine is almost identical to the one on the F-302, except this B variant allows the spacecraft travel 11% faster and stay in hyperspace 65% longer before shutting down to recharge.

                          Power Source:
                          The F-302B is powered by a Mark 2 Naquadah Generator

                          Armaments:

                          Most F302B are armed with the following for multi-mission roles:
                          1 30mm Rail gun, 400 rounds

                          2 Striker Particle Cannon, located on the tips of the craft. Shortly after the fall of the Goa'uld the Free Jaffa donated a small fleet of 24 Death Gliders, 15 Tel'tak cargo ships and 3 Al’kesh to the SGC. Scientists estimate that they will be able to reverse engineer their own version of the Death Glider’s disruptor cannons by 2010.

                          4 Foe Hammer Air to Air missiles, Two of these missiles are located under both Aerospike engines. It has the firepower to destroy a F302B and inflict moderate damage to an Al’kesh.

                          The Following are installed inside the Bomb bay:

                          4 Foe Hammer Air to Air Missiles

                          2 Foe Smasher HE Missiles, this missile contains a high explosive warhead that is designed to severely damage an Al’kesh

                          1 Ground Hog Penetrator Missile, As the name suggests, this hydrogen propelled bomb is used to destroy bunkers, a single Ground Hog released from 100 000ft can sustain enough velocity to punch through Cheyenne Mountain, into level 25. Also this weapon can be inflict moderate damage to a Gou’old mother ship if its shields are disabled.

                          Electronics: -20/10 Dual Core Terabit Processor, the 1st one is used to regulate normal ship operations, while the second 10 TB processor is completely devoted to the hyperspace generator and used to calculate jump calculations.

                          -Electronic Counter Measures
                          -Electronic Counter Counter Measures
                          -Digital Interface: There are no analogue gauges or meters, all monitors are LCD touch screen displays.
                          -Secure Encryption link

                          Other Features:

                          Inertia Dampeners: This new and improved inertia dampeners can
                          compensate for 98.7% of the G force sustained when in hypersonic flights. The Inertia Dampeners will compensate for all maneuvers executed during a dogfight, however the pilot will feel the G forces if the pilot makes any extreme turns once the throttle is pushed past 98%

                          Quantity in UTF (United Tauri Fleet): 58

                          Incremental Upgrades:

                          Adaptive Camouflage: Plans are being made to outfit the F302B with Lightweight optoelectronic systems built around advanced image sensors and display panels render the fighter craft transparent and thus effectively invisible to the human eye. This would give Bird of Prey pilots a distinctive advantage against enemy pilots, especially in a dogfight. Unfortunately the 302B can still be tracked by conventional radar, and since Adaptive Camouflage takes up a majority of the computer’s processing power, it can only be sustained for 20 minutes and requires a 5 minute cool down time.

                          Mk. II Intertia Dampeners: The International Committee is currently looking into reverse engineering Goa’uld Inertia Dampeners, when perfected, it will be 100% effective and enable F302B pilots to maneuver without restraint.

                          Mk II Energy Shields: Scientists are researching the possibility of installing a human designed energy shield to repel projectiles and absorb energy weapons. The new shields will be skin tight, exactly 1cm from the hull. A second more power Mk 1 Naquadah generator may need to be devoted to power the shields. It will be designed primarily to defend against fighter craft fire.
