Yup, a few peeps remarked upon it a few pages back.
Most were in agreement it was pretty blatantly pulled from the Assertor Dreadnaught.

Yeah, but that was from an earlier issue. What I posted is from a more recent one with more views of that ship.

Oh Really? I figured was just more of the same.
Seems like another comic walking tiny fighters disabling a capital ship?

I don't think they actually disabled it or even really intended to. On an earlier page, Han advised them to "nuzzle up against the destroyers," presumably to use them as cover against the TIE fighters.

Yeah looks sorta like a Bellator, but different enough not to be the same ship.

Glad my style is catching on though :)

Well who else can say they went from fandom to Canon twice with their own designs

The frustrating thing is that they never show anything but close-ups of it. Are those enough for you to be able to extrapolate what the entire ship looks like though?

Oh yeah, that's not a problem. No idea of the ventral side or the extreme ends, but the available shots give a pretty good idea what it'd look like. Bellator with more pronounced terraces and greater proportion of volume in superstructure.

That looks pretty much like the real thing. The comics ship is much more divergent but still it's basically a Bellator vibe design wise.

Do you hold any copyright over your designs anymore?

Nope, and never did for any of the obviously SW ships, since that's all LFL/Disney derivative material anyway. True for anyone that tries to sell anything SW as well, including garage model kit builders and such - usually it's just that no one gets big enough to go after. I just stay out of it and do it as a hobby, but there are people that make a living making kits and such sans license. One guy made a cast kit of my released ISD model, errors and all (makes it easy to spot). It was a damn good looking kit though.

Commissioned Tyrant missile cruiser WIPs.

Long and thin to minimize profile and a rotary heavy warhead system. I've taken that concept and developed it a bit, with the main missile battery in a fixed and separate annular compartment away from the hull. Power should end up being ~2-3 ISD, so barely a cruiser, which is fitting given the very thin hull (I expect the reactor to be fully buried). Fast, well shielded, but not a slugger.

Still, more than a match for poor Enterprise.

An intriguing design. Is the intention that the missile ring was essentially "tacked on" to an existing light cruiser design?

I'm not sure, it's pretty seamless, and a big enough alteration that it looks like they'd have had to basically chop the original cruiser in half. Possible if you're starting with hulls still in the shipyard and not quite assembled, I suppose.

What intrigues me is if it's supposed to be rotary, and if so, how does that work considering the two sides are at an angle to each other, rather than at the same plane?

(never mind. I can't read. 'fixed and separate compartment')
It's a strange world. Let's keep it that way.

I should clarify, when I said it was a module "tacked on" I meant that it was a modification on an existing hull design rather than a purpose-deisgned hull. Like how the Immobilizer 418 Interdictors were based on the Vindicator frigate hull.

Maybe could be a possibility of a modular task force Cruiser hull? I see some similarities in design profile. :wink: :D
