“The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.” – Carl Sagan

The stars are vast and wars are long. Carries and Battleships require massive amounts of time and resources to build. The need for large cheap mass produced warships were needed, to bolster fleets and expand the Union’s sphere of influence. The “Pikeman” class system Cutter was designed for that purpose in mind.

Hull:
The hull is a reinforced version of the “Nomad” class merchant vessel. It was chosen due to its efficient balance of space & size. Also, the design has been around for a number of decades and has proven itself to be one of the most reliable hulls ever launched.

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=353591

Engines:
1 Kruger & Hogan M-717 Hyperspace Engine
2 Dolmer Sublight Engines

Power plant:
One of the most expensive parts to a ship is its power core. Due, to most core’s having to be uniquely designed for new hulls. Since a commercial hull was chosen, a commercial power plant was used. The Mark 23 “Phoenix” Fusion reactor was chosen for it’s high power output, and it’s design compatibly with lvl 4 commercial hulls.

Crew: 10
1 Commander
1 Weapons Officer
2 Pilots
6 Marines (2 Assault Team’s)

Armor:
The cost & time to manufacture thick multi-fused heavy armor plating was too slow & costly. To minimize the cost & still provided more than adequate protection. The “Pikeman” uses a spaced armor outer plate with a moderately armored inner hull. The outer plate primary function is to diffuse (by direction & intensity) both kinetic and energy weapons fire to minimize damage to the inner hull.

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=353590

Shields:
Military Grade Muti-Phase Shield

Armament:
Armed with an array of weapon systems, the “Pikeman” is capable of engaging a squad of fighters to engaging most but the largest of SHIP’s. One of the smallest spacecraft to carry a heavy weapons system, the 407mm Railgun Cannon is capable of dealing significant damage to most SHIP’s.

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=353597

1 407mm Railgun Cannon
2 2x165mm Railgun Turrets
8 2x25MW (Megawatt) Ion Cannon Batteries
3 Phalanx XVII Anti Missile System
3 4x “Sparrow” AFM (Anti Fighter Missile) Turrets
2 2x “Lancer” ASM (Anti Ship Missile) Racks
2 10 Kiloton Atomic Torpedoes (Dry launch from Railgun Cannon)

Compliment:
The P-23 “Hog” Battle Pod was chosen for it’s versatility, as a transport & gunship. With it’s similar armored plating, the “Hog” can take enough punishment to get it’s package/boarding party to where ever it needs to go.

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=353596

Crew: 3-4
1 Pilot
2 Passengers (Seated) or 3 Man Assault Team (Standing)

Armament:
2 25MW (Megawatt) Ion Cannons
2 MRM (Multi Role Missile)

With it’s simple design, and standardized parts, these ships can be built within 4-6 months. Thus, making it possible to build a sizable fleet in a fairly short amount of time. And designed to be less than 100S(the “Pikeman” is 96S long) and classified as a Cutter, this ASHIP(Almost SHIP) is not restricted to the Galactic Convention of weapon to size ratio and the class maximum build limitations. One of these ships is powerful enough to take on most SHIP’s, but in large enough numbers, nothing much in this universe would be able to hold them back.

That is teh niceness! You've definitely fixed the 'plate-ey' look.

I think we now have a competitor to match Natalya's SHIP skillage! Who will win?

Yeah I noticed that.. but she could still win. You don't have to be here for people to vote for you in a poll!

Why can't she do both?

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Natalya seems to bounce in and out of posting on a weekly basis. I bet shes lurking and is gonna post something soon...

Like I said before, AWESOME ship. 10/10 stars. I still have no idea who i would vote for though...

Thanks everyone,

Yeah, hopefully it's decent enough for some of the other entries. I think I can do better next time. I'm gonna go for a smoother sleeker design. I need to work on my greebles too. Never did them before but they look like a great accent.

I hope Natalya does enter, I found an old string and her corvette is about 2 years old. I want to see what's she's learned since then.

I don't like his tiled counter and light-coloured wood, but the beveled mirror is nice.

Yeah it's cramped, gives the guys more incentive to get out of there and fight for space in someone else's ship! :twisted:

The green tile makes me gag sometimes, if I had a say, I'd rip it off and be happy with a concrete counter. But I'm a renter, so, not much of a choice in the matter.

Just to let you know, since I'm sure you were all crying without me, the reason I haven't been able to post recently is because I'm in Israel, and still will be for another week or so. Still wanna do SHIP contest though. Be back soon. Hopefully won't die.
