The Tul'tharian Galactic Empire

Quick n' Dirty Overview
During their late industrial age, a derelict ship crashed on the Tul'tharian homeworld of Tul'thare. Awed by its technology, and the solid evidence of other life in the universe, they began to reverse-engineer the technologies present in the ship. After only two years, the first expeditionary fleet was launched, and a period of rapid development and expansion followed. They have continued to develop at a frenzied pace, locked in an arms race with someone they've yet to meet.

Note: All dates are expressed relative to the start of the First Era, starting at 0.

For the first and second era ships, they've been moved to here to keep this post a bit tidier.
The storyline components from this post have been moved to the Galactic Databank, here.

Nice 'n simple, although some seem a bit too easily made.

Also, I recommend cropping your pictures, it's no use having a 3MB picture if you're showing ships that small. Are you using Photobucket?

Lol, your back story is sooo similar to the one I'm developing for my potential new race... then again there's not much original to come up with regarding sci-fi back stories, lol

I'm currently going for the simple look, since these are supposed to be the TGE's first ships ever in space, and are really my first ships that haven't just been for fun. I am thinking about redoing the mining ship, because it doesn't fit in with the rest.
Those pics are PNGs that I hurriedly tried to upload before bed, and they're hosted in the server space that came with our Telus modem+e-mail accounts. I'll definitely crop them though, to cut down on loading time.
@Wicky: Yeah, there really isn't much originality left to be had, sci-fi or otherwise. The originality comes in the details though, and I'll be filling in the story as I go along.

Got three new ships up, tweaked various stats, redid the Thuron and Kultare, and cropped the photos.
Oh, and the stubby wings on the ships and stations are supposed to be docking ports.

The blue you're using is a little too dark, IMO. Other than that they seem pretty decent. Experiment with the text formatting and image positions so it's more obvious as to which ship is which.

Whoo! Complete re-do of formatting, massive extension of plotline, 5 or so new ships, a little recoloring(colored the side plating on the heavier guys blue), chopped off the prow plating on the Thuron, and halfed the number of nanos on the Felhan.
I'm going to be releasing ships by era, and the First Era is about half done. I've got almost all the ships done, the biggest is already made, and then I need to balance the stats out to each other.
Oh, and does anyone know how to get rid of the ugly in-game glow effect on the colors? It's turning my grays and blues into browns and blue-browns.

Very good, nice and simple, especially when considering they're the 'low-tech' ships of your nation.

Looking good. Some of them seem to have too many weapons for a first generation fleet though.

At the main BSF menu, go to options. Cycle through the colors settings until you come to ship glow. Setting the color to black will completely remove it.

Booyah! The First Era ships are done, and there's a download link at the bottom of the topic post!

The two new ships are the Gelnal and the Gelyut, and I cut down on the missile bays on the Darkra, among other things. All the weapons are now balanced out with custom stats, and some more little blurbs of story have been added.
I'm planning on making a Preserver repaint, to make TGE-Preserver fights a little more colorful and understandable.

Enjoy the download!

Oh, and @Arcanedude and Lizzie, I'm planning on joining the SVE/IVL story with my Third Era ships, would I be able to? Or is it getting a little crowded there, with so many people randomly showing up? First one to respond gets dibs on claiming the alien ship (see Iss'engir Incident at the top of the topic post) as one of theirs.

Download is not working. You should use the uploader on this site, if the file is not too big.

Fix'd.
Typed TSE instead of TGE. Actually, which one looks better? I might switch.

TGE seems fine I think. Your ships are simple and blocky but they're still very nice, good job.

That one's destroyer size, and it's got house colors mixed in with the old color scheme, though I think I put too much of it on.
