Gryphon Class Runabout Completed


She's finally done! The Gryphon Runabout is complete.

Added specifications to the attached image. She turned out bigger than I expected. Was hoping to keep her under 30m, but oh well, 40.5 m is just as well. We'll have to expand the Legacy Class Bay by 2m to fit this baby in :)

Next Project: Orcus Class Fighter redesign.

FFX-32MR "Orcus" Specs

To go along with the runabout here are the fighters specs and info.

FFX-32MR ORCUS


In Roman mythology, Orcus was a god of the underworld.

Model Number: FFX-32MR
Code Name: Orcus
Unit Type: Multi-role fighter spacecraft
Manufacturer: AKG Engine Systems
Operator: United Federation of Planets/Starfleet
Accomodation: Pilot and Co-pilot
Powerplant Type: FNX-815-D-16 Compact Enhanced Matter/Anti-Matter Reaction System. IDX-108-HP Mk II Compact Mass Drive System x 2.
Speed: Cruise: Warp 7.5; Maximum Speed: Warp 9 (Controlled M/AM Overload)
Armament: Mk VIII Compact Pulse Cannons x 2; Type-VII Phaser Array; Mk V Mini-Torpedo Launcher x 2; Hardpoint x 6

Equipment:

Type V Regenerative Shield System: This system quickly analyzes an attacking weapon's frequency and then modulates shield freqency to increase damage mitigation without depleting shield energy.

Mercury System: This system utilises the collective energies of 3 or more fighters shield systems creating a larger, stronger shield bubble.

A-L.S: The Anti-Lock system is a sensor jamming suite that masks the fighters systems from targeting sensors of other vessels.

Cerebus A.I. System: The Cerebus is an Artificial Intelligence utilising three seperate cores working together. Cerebus monitors the pilots and ship systems, it can take over control of the vessel if nessesary.

E.C.S: Enclosed Cockpit System, a fully enclosed cockpit for both pilot and co-pilot incorperating a holographic, almost 360 degree viewscreen. The cockpit area also serves as an escape pod. There are no windows on the fighter. (Prototype Model FFX-00 uses the usual canopy configuration)

The Pilgrim

This is a ship design I have been working on for an animation, its still in the design stages but I have worked out a few specs and features for it:

Diomed Systems Scout Craft
SC-460

-6 Person Crew
-1x Minas Class FTL spin drive
-2x Ion Fusion (I.F) Drives
-Long range directional sensor/comm array
-landing capability
-ARTGRAV anti gravity system
-ECM arrays

arms
2x Gemini ion beam arrays
8x Point defense turrets
1x Anti ship torpedo tube
2x heavy cannons

Originally this ship was built during the 50year war as a scout vessel. The captain of the pilgrim purchased the ship from a junk outpost on the rim 2 years ago. The ships of this type where built during the last 10 years of the war so the pilgrim is already over 20 years old.
