The Wrath of the Drahk by Colourbrand The Wrath of the Drahk by Colourbrand
This is a fleet of ships from the Sci-fi show Babylon Five.

The sole surviving Victory Class Destroyer, the Excalibur, has received disturbing information that a large task force of Drahk has been sighted near a world not far from the Minbar system. The Excalibur has been responsible for numerous defeats of the Drahk, including assisting in the destruction of a Shadow Planet Killer (where its sister ship, the Victory was destroyed) and finding the cure for the so-called Drahk plague.

All that they know is that the Drahk have massed in significant force. To assist the flagship of the Interstellar Alliance, a combined force of Alna’shok and Minbari vessels have joined them; these include a pair of the mighty Sharlin Class War-Cruisers, four WhiteStar Class Monitiors, a pair of Enfali Class Cutters, and a Valen Class Transport.

On arrival however, the fleet discover nothing. It is when they arrive that the Drahk appear and in the classic quote from Admiral Akhbar “it’s a trap” spring it. Along with their vast fleet of ships, the Drahk have brought along their version of the Victory Class, a gigantic five limbed monstrosity that on arrival opens fire with five powerful beams that inflict immediate damage to the Excalibur – including crippling its front neutron blasters.

Despite being few and the flagship being damaged, the fleet prepare to engage the Drahk.

I did this for a friend as well as doing something different, with the hopeful chance that this will improve my skills in doing space combat scenes.

I also did this because I wanted to make the Drahk feel like a threat; after all they were allies to the Shadows so they would/should have learned a thing or two from their masters – the same way that the ISA did from the Vorlons.

Let me know what you all think :D

Enjoy!

I will and look forward to when you get your mojo back. Babylon 5 would have to be one of it not my most favourite series. :D
