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.

Very impressive! It reminds me a little of the ships seen in "The Fifth Element," but more pleasing to the eye. The idea of a ship capable to carrying an orbital station ready for service gave me a 'Why didn't I think of that?' moment. Clap

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!

It's a Vulcan CLASS colony ship, not a Vulcan colony ship. It has nothing to do with Star Trek.

The design is very good but I think that the "Vulcan" is not very adequate name for the colony ship. Better name would be, for example, "Settler" or "Voyager".

It feels as if it was heavily influenced by Star Wars's Super Star Destroyer ship.
