Despoiler

on Wed Feb 25, 2015 11:16 am
The Despoiler is a class of space vessel known for its extensive cargo capacity, fuel economy, and space pirate use.

Stock Despoilers are armed rather minimally, with only four dual turbo-disruptor cannons and one forward facing torpedo launcher.

On its original nacelles, the Despoiler can maintain a speed of Warp 7.8 nearly indefinitely.  It would take a healthy Despoiler warp core half a century to burn a full case of Dilithium while running continuously at Warp 7.8.

The Despoiler features a large loading area in the rear, behind its shuttlebay, both of which are protected by a swinging blast door.

The Despoiler is built with four surface skids, making it capable of surface landings and takeoffs should such a thing happen.

Originally my intentions were to build a ship around an SNOT experiment, then I decided it would be a Ferengi ship like the Marauder. In the end it's just a generic space pirate ship, maybe even a civie like Tetraman's ships. Either way that is the behind the scenes story of the Despoiler.

If it were a civie ship it'd need a much nicer name, maybe DV-12. Something boring like Lincoln MKS MKZ MKX MKT MKwhat.

Nice! I like it a lot! As some have already pointed out, the dark orange hull and dark gray detailing makes for a junker look, as do the landing skids. (Another touch that I absolutely love!) The design of the turrets are also really cool.

I'm glad you like it. Smile

I did a bit of experimenting combined with various techniques I already know to build this ship and I think it turned out well too!

I must say, this really is the perfect seedy, hot-rodded "beater" ship. 

The overall design is VERY pleasing to the eye, and as others have already said, the color scheme and landing skids work perfectly on this ship. I also really love the nacelles, although I think the pylons could be wider (from fore to aft of ship) and use a touch of dark stone gray to help the transition from nacelles to hull. 

I think this ship just works really well as what it is. Well done!
