Also, if you're working on a ship and plan to submit it once its done, feel free to post and say so!
Hi, I'm Commander STARSTRUCK, and this is my favourite thread on the forum!
I'm working on a ship for the Limited Realism category right now, but I've always sucked cocks at using the Kae_shn section pack so it's going to take some time.
I'll try my best to not suck at it. Maybe it'll be good. Maybe it'll be bad. And I still have no idea what to build for the fanships category. Maybe something from Babylon 5.
The pressure is... hyperbaric in here, oh god.
EDIT: Limited Realism
entry is done.
Iris-class Beam Cruiser
Far from a mere solution, the Iris carries the be-all and end-all of beam weapons. A fresh ripstar held in place by two specially-designed arms is all it takes to set this vessel above all others of its class. But-- and this may come as a big shock to you, Chairman Volk-- an enourmous amount of energy is required to placate a ripstar, while surprisingly little is required to send it off the hook and into some poor Ardarian captain's freshly painted hull. Fear not, for we at the Cronus Capacitator Company are fully committed to providing all of your energitudinous energy needs.
Moving on. The ship's hollowed-out, skeletal structure allows it move suprisingly quickly on a pair of thrust-vectored engines that military critics have described as "asthmatic" and "severely underpowered". On the flipside, the exposed underwork gives it a radar signature equivalent to that of a small planetoid moving on a particularly offensive trajectory. Nevertheless, trials have shown that when the Iris is around, enemy trade in the area tends to stall for several weeks out of sheer terror. Enemy fleets wait for the large, heavily-armed ship to pack up and leave before before calling it clear. This ass backwards fear factor-based blockading has earned the psychotic Iris-class vessels a firm place within the Balteran Navy's military arsenal.Armament:1x Ripstar Beam Projector

this doesn't break the plagiarism rule. Technically. I built it all by myself
. And all links to the old ship it resembles are dead, so...
