's great ideas.
I had a struggle with this because I wanted to convey a medium looking hull but with the stylings of the Alliance. I also wanted it to again look like form, fit and function. It was the adding of weapons that made her look more credible and realised I had a good design on my hands.
commented well on this "a shark in the stars" and yeah! The strange pattern is an improvement of the pigmets used on other ships.
