    Post Cut Away Spaceship

    I thought this might be of interest here. It's a cutaway view of a spaceship I found on scifi-meshes.com.

    Here's the original context:

    There's no such thing as too much weaponry.

    Too much is never enough. If yer gonna kill it, overkill it Seriously, though, that's some nice work.

    Confucius say: "Do not use a cannon to kill a mosquito."

    Obviously Confucius has never encountered typical science fiction enemies.

    Dark Lord Weapons and Munitions say

    "Confucious was 89lbs of mostly water. He couldn't even take one minor Gauss Energy Gun hit. Who you gonna believe?"

    I could have sworn I put a comment in this thread about how if when you fire a full volley of all your weapons, and your ship Doesn't feel like it is about to shake itself apart, then you don't have enough weapons.

    I don't see room for any fuel. How does it get anywhere?
    Strap-on rockets?
    Launched out of a rail gun itself, to be picked up later?
    Zero-point energy cells?

    Easy! Point gun backwards, shoot gun. Insta-propulsion!


    Also, in browsing deviantArt tonight, I actually came across this very image coincidentally. Here's the page of the artist on which I found it: http://paul-muad-dib.deviantart.com/gallery/

    Still trying to decipher the signature to decide whether this is the originating artist or not, but I think it might be.
