Andromeda Class Battleship

on Thu Aug 21, 2014 2:35 am
~ Start Entry ~

Andromeda Mk. I

Spoiler:


Andromeda Mk. II

Spoiler:

An old classic returns.

The original Johnnyred supercruiser has made its way to the PCG forum.  At long last, possibly what is the most iconic of all of my starships has finally received a refit.


The Andromeda is one bad mamba jamma.  You seriously do not want to mess with the Andromeda class starship.  Speed, power, manueverability, it's like the Swiss army knife of starships.   The "Engineering Hull" is more of a hanger bay/bunker for the fighter squadron and Starquest detachment.  (Though it does have its fair share of weaponry for defense as well as dual deflectors to protect it.  

While escorts for the Andromeda are welcome, it does not necessarily need them.  More often than not, an Andromeda is sent to escort a small flotilla, providing them with the firepower necessary to make it to their destination.  

After the original confrontation with the Spectre, in which the Andromeda was all but utterly destroyed.  It was after this that Johnnyred realized that the Andromeda needed an upgrade.  What had been (at that period in time) the most powerful ship in the PCG fleet was reduced to a smoking hull in moments.  After rebuilding the Andromeda with heaps of scrap that were lying around so that it could take place in the battle with the Spectre, Johnnyred spent months to himself, personally designing and building the Andromeda refit.  Now, it's firepower could trade nearly equal blows with a Spectre and its deflectors could hold up against a Spectre for a decent battle.  And dependent upon who the captain is, it could win against the Spectre.

This is the bane of nearly any other enemy vessel.  

... Also, I've officially uploaded the .Lxfs for the F-114 Phoenix and the F-101 Dagger now.

(Ok, peeps.  No raging about OPness, XD  When I say it can stand up to almost anything... I mean NPC.  Not user vessels, so PXE, Yaka, Cor Redor, Minator, etc. could be equal to more powerful than the Andromeda.  XD)

Awesome ship! It looks like a smaller version of the Arondite. Razz I really like the blue dish detail on the bottom of the saucer and the non-SNOT sections add some contrast. I love the rear section with those blue radiators, so great job there as well. Wink I think that for a battleship, it's a bit underarmed, and kinda small, but you know me. Razz

EXCELLENT redesign, J-red! The warp nacelles are absolutely superb, and the saucer is masterfully done! The turrets and pylons are also fantastic! Amazing job!  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven 

PXR- Technically, saying the Arondite is a larger version of this would be more accurate. Razz

@ PXR and Mighty - See... here's what I've noticed... PXR tells me my stuff is underarmed and Mighty tells me that my ships are OP and everyone else tells me that (for the most part at least) my ships are perfect. Razz Something else I've noticed... Mighty's ships are usually underarmed in my opinion, and PXRs ships are usually OP (Not as in OP weapons, but packed with way to many weapons. XD) Whereas most everyone elses ships in my mind usually have the right amonunt of weaponry. So... My best guess is so long as I keep Mighty thinking my ships are OP and PXR thinking my ships are underpowered, I'm all good. XD

@ PXR - Yes, technically the Andromeda came far before the Arondite. Initially the Arondite was created to be the updated version of the Andromeda (Uploads picture of the Original Andromeda to this topic) See that for reference. Also, if the disc things are what you're calling radiators, those are actually Deflector Dishes. Razz But danke for liking the ships. XD

@ Mighty - Danke! Glad you like it! I wasn't sure about it myself, I kinda thought there was something off about the warp nacelles, but I'm glad you like them! I couldn't think of anything else to make them better. XD

@ Dino - Danke! Very Happy

The only thing I'm confused about is whether the Andromeda is a class of starship, with multiple Andromedas in existence, or whether it's just one ship. Sometimes in the description you say "AN Andromeda," but in the backstory you refer to "THE Andromeda." Not trying to sound snippy or anything, I'm just wondering which it is. xD

And yes, basically you just average PXR and Mightyman to come out with the perfect starship. xD

Ok... lemme 'splain. Andromeda is A starship and a starship class. So when I say "Andromeda" I mean THE Andromeda. When I say "Andromedas" I mean several of the ships of the line. Razz Same goes for the rest of my ships. Question answered? Razz

Hey, you have a point there! Never noticed that myself, but that's actually rather accurate now that I think about it. Razz

Well, considering the common consensus is that my stuff it underarmed, maybe I should step up weaponry?









....Naaaaaaaaaaahhh... Razz

The Andromeda is a beautiful starship. Very Happy

@Tetrahedron: My belief is that you can never have too many weapons places to shoot weapons out of. Razz

@J-red: Oh, a deflector dish, I see. Razz I meant the radiators on the rear of engineering. Razz

@Tetra: PUT MORE WEAPONRY! Razz Actually, never mind, keep your ships like that, that way PXE will have an easier time it looks better. Razz

Bea-UTIFUL refit, Johnnnyred! I love how you added details, weaponry, and more color. You've really spiffed this thing up!

@ Mighty - XD whatever propels your starship. Razz

@ PXR - Oooooooh, those. XD That's the exit/entrance for the hanger bay. Special light shield thingy. Typical sci-fi hanger bay tech. XD

@ Scare - Danke! Very Happy
