Here are some LDD renderings of some fleet vessels for brikspace. I've broken down to using LDD since my own lego collection is pretty wimpy. I know there are several versions of brikspace floating around, but these ships were drafted with Olonothontor's in mind.
The first ship is the "Broadsword", name chosen to be a pun on "Broadside." As is apparent, the weapon batteries are mounted for starboard combat.
The Broadsword boasts a large laser battery, 2 medium laser batteries, 3 small laser batteries, Extra Plating, and a squadron (12) of fighters/bombers. Here, a fighter docks on the port-side:
Second for the evening is the "Crossbow" class cruiser. I haven't totally thought out the armament, so here's the base design:
Comments welcome; I have some smaller frigates on file that I will post at a latter date.
