....In LDD

It was just another day on DS12 when out of nowhere came a fleet of alien cruisers, they began attacking the station,backed up by two war-birds....

Maybe more to come

how nice i like the ships farthest back , they look a little klingon bird of prey"ish"

heres a little tip if you want the ships to look like theyre turning build a stand in ldd with joints on it then attach the stand to the ship and use hinge tool to "pose"the ship once your happy with the pose you can delete the stand and move the ship around in the same "pose"

One of the smaller frigates, the H.M.S Venture, is already fueled and has her crew on board, she un-docks and proceeds to engage one of the Hives...

Image

The Hives turrets fire ferocious energy blasts towards the Venture but she stands firm, fighting back with all her might....

Image

Unfortunately the hive is too powerful and the Venture is torn in half, but her valiant effort has bought enough time for the other ships to prepare to launch....


Should I continue??

Heck yes.
This is an interesting idea, btw. I didn't know you could export images from LDD (I'm new to the program). You might want to try finding a star/planetscape background instead of just black, if possible.

If you click view model, you can choose different backgrounds, then click snapshot, ther is a planet background, but for some reason it doesn't work.

The Fleet Launches from the station, led by the Dreadnought command ship,

Image

Seeing his opportunity the dreadnought H.M.S Valiant, charges his subspace disruptor cannon,

Image

"All Hands brace for cannon recoil!" shouted the captain, "fire on my mark, 3...2...1...MAR.."

Image

The Cannon fires with the power of small sun, ripping through the material of space and time, obliterating the enemy hive...

Image

the remains of the hive are burning and venting atmosphere...

Image

Undaunted by there comrades grim destruction, the bird-of-preys begin an attack run on the station..


Don't know when/if i'll post the next part, do you lot think it's worth continuing?

Again, heck yes, this is getting good :D
I do think you should do some actual explosions instead of red dots, or laser beams instead of those color streaks. Up to you.
I tried photoshopping your earlier pic, the background came out a bit bright:

Unfortunately I only have MS Paint, and i'm not spending long on this, it was only because i'm bored, if you know how to do better stuff in Paint that doesn't take too long, I'd love to hear.

Sorry, I'm not trying to nitpick.
The main recommendation I would have, then, is using blaster bolts like this instead of color streaks:

But you're doing a great job anyway, so feel free to ignore me.

Seriously good use of LDD, so keep going. It has potential, if nothing else it'll make an excellent dry run for something even grander. The Stars are a bit too... dazzling, if you can use less stars.
