Colony Ship by Orpheus7 Colony Ship by Orpheus7
The Vulcan class colony ship was developed to carry entire human colonies through the skein and deposit them, along with their orbital habitat, in systems to be colonised. Able to carry about 100 000 people and all of their equipment, these vessels were huge and were the work horses of the corporate colonisation effort. In fact, it was estimated that almost 30 billion colonists were moved from the core system to the colonies using the Vulcan class over a 60 year period.

Colony ships carried no offensive weapons to speak of, although they were equipped with self-defence guns and carried several frigates and fighter wings that equipped the colonial militia.

Excellent. To me, it has battlestar overtones, what with what looks like the launch bay.

Wow! What an awesome and gorgeous design. Was this for a particular project?

The orbital station addition is downright genius.

I can't help but see the influence of a star destroyer in your design, something I have always been found of. Very nice looking ship!

Perhaps. I guess nothing is truly original (my excuse anyway). Thanks for the comment.

Great design and your drafting skills are excellent, I really like the idea of the detachable orbital station as well, its a well thought out feature.

Nice, reminds me of the Phoenix colony ship from Halo.

Thanks for the comment. Never saw a Phoenix colony ship before but now that I have, I guess it might look a little similar.
