The Best Defense by Drell-7 The Best Defense by Drell-7
Backstept's practical and well-designed Cygnus Defender, based on the design sensibilities of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, accompanied by a combat patrol of stalwart Viper Mk II's, beautifully modeled by Treybor. I did the background nebula and various FX.

Lightwave 10, Photoshop

Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I'd kind of like to see the same shot in 'TOS' mode. (Not Star Trek TOS, mind you, but Battlestar Galactica.)

I'm working on a TOS Viper model now--so, maybe soon?

That'd be cool! Plus, the Cygnus wouldn't even need much modification, other than (perhaps) hiding the 'ribs' on the hull to make it look more 'TOS'-like. Design-wise, it looks--from this angle at least--like it'd be right at home with the TOS battlestars. (I suspect that the aft end might need a little back-dating to make the engines look older, but whatever...)

Sorry... I completely forgot to mention how cool this composition looks, regardless of which version of the show we're looking at. Also, blacklion68 is right: this DOES look like it could be box art for a model kit!

Looks like one of those old school 70's art for a model kit. Nicely done.
