This is another concept design for
: a gunship for the Alliance - The Comet Class. It's a high speed, small but lethal vessel. Again I went by the given material below, and again the entire design was left for me to conceive and make but based on specific taste; Alliance ships are more sleeker, smoother, and sports car like. It is their way of showing they are different from Terran ships.
All Comet Class ships are named after famous and discovered comets.
