Praemos station from above
great work! how big would, say, the saturn battlecruiser be next to this thing?
HA! great question! Thank you! Hmm.. If I remember correctly the Saturn is about 2600m long, while Praemos station is "only" 1200m in diameter. I think it would dwarf it. I was very much into ww1-2 battleships and cruisers back then and I think I made the saturn longer and sleeker than the Jupiter (2,4km) The idea was that the Saturn was like the HMS Hood of the Royal Navy. (Bigger than most of the same era battleships, but classed as a battlecruiser bechause she had less armour and greater speed.) I wanted to give the Saturn a similar feel about it. Lots of firepower, fast looking and not so heavily armoured.
This one reminds me of a Goa'uld mothership(stargate), to be exact looks like Anubis' flagship.
He he, you're absolutely right! I've never seen one before, but I looked it up and the resemblance is striking. It was an armed orbital station I designed for a theatre group in Hawaii called Theatricus and the big buttresses are there because I needed a platform to house fighter launch bays and raised weapons, so the shape kind of grew out of requirement, but it looks just like the Anubis ship, he he. Still it's not really a unique shape, so the fact that it looks like something else isn't that strange I guess.
