Tux's Terran Empire- Now with more ship poses!

This is the mood music for the fluff reading.

The Terran Empire arose as a result of the lack of collapse of the Roman Empire. The Empire became known as the Eternal Empire and as a consequence, Roman ideals became very prevalent in the world. Tensions growing in the years following the germanic wars meant that Asian powers were now being threatened by Rome.

After tensions between the west and east spilled over the borders, the new black-powder equipped legions fought with Chinese riflemen for control of Eurasia and ultimately asia.

Rome now had grown to the point where mass colonization occurred, and after several rebellions and insurrections, slavery had to be eliminated to appease the masses. Hundreds of years later, the Global Eternal Empire was organized, and an uneasy peace began between the ruling classes and the poor.

That is, until the fateful day that warp technology was tested for the first time. The world was shocked as the existence of aliens was confirmed.

A new ferver gripped the Empire.

A new purpose.

A new manifest destiny.

United at last, the humans of the Terran Empire engineered warships from captured technology and set out to capture the universe. The Vulcans surrendered, seeing as it was illogical to resist. Subsequent wars alongside Vulcans had Terrans respecting and admiring the Vulcans, putting them on-par with humanity. Other alien races were not so lucky. The Andorians, the Bajorans, Breens, and others weren't slaves but weren't regarded as highly as Terrans or Vulcans were.

At this time, the Romulan/Klingon/Cardassian alliance is holding the line. How long they can keep this up or how successfully, no one knows.

But know this.

The Terran Empire will prevail.

Her people are infallible and unstoppable, not because we've improved ourselves in times of peace, but we thrive and we grow in times of conflict.

And as the Galaxy wages war with us, we grow ever stronger.

Victory is already ours.

Long live the Empire!

As you can see, the projection displays our soldiers, ranging from:

Cadet: Almost a simpleton, but brave and loyal to the empire.

Officer: Once a cadet but with ambition and the drive to achieve his own ambitions. Often has loyal bodyguards.

Captains/Admirals: Once officers but weren't satisfied with their achivements of power. Extremely dangerous, as they likely have more loyal lackeys than anyone.

Assault Squad Trooper Cadet: A cadet who has volunteered for Assault Squad Duty. The poor fools. Brave and loyal to a fault, these are usually issued phasguns and attack en-masse.

Assault Squad Trooper Legionnaire: Someone who joined the Assault Squads because he loves close combat. A full-time Assault Squad Trooper, these are also deployed on enemy positions en-masse to steal technology, ships, planets, etc.

Assault Squad Officer: A very lucky and skilled trooper. These men of steel are found leading Legionnaires and Cadets into boarding and invading actions.

This is the Reliant-Class. It has a dual role in the destroyer/scout capacities, and it can serve in both roles equally well. Packing punch and being able to boldly go where no Terran has gone before is a real neat to have, indeed.

[Image: hIoMoz5.png]

This is the Constitution-class heavy cruiser. It has been engineered from the USS Defiant, a ship from another time and another dimension. Naturally, this outclasses everything in the time period, and has been used ever since as a ship of the line.

They have been proven extremely effective in combat.

[Image: xAnPUcu.png]

This is the Proxima-Class Battleship. Addressing the need for even heavier attack ships, the Terran Empire designed the Proxima using the Constitution as a base and upscaled the entire thing to better serve as a front-line attack ship. However, care has been taken to not overspecialize the Proxima, and, as such, has the support systems necessary for exploration and patrol/escort missions.

However, there are even bigger vessels that are highly classified and only enter combat in the Emperor's direct order.

[Image: n10ZhHZ.png]

This is the NX-Class Cruiser. Affectionately called the "Legion" class, these are deployed with phase cannons and proton torpedoes. Additionally, they can use a cloaking method to hide away themselves to perform clandestine missions or surprise attacks, or stealth assault. Stealth assault consists of several NX-class vessels decloaking and attacking, but cloaking just as soon and looping around while other vessels decloak and attack, ensuring a continous cycle of attack.

[Image: kUmON15.png]

These are the prides of the Terran Starfleet, the Galaxy Class. Built to not only hold it's own, but carry an army into combat, negating any need for transports when these vessels are used in planetary assaults.
Long live the Empire!

Well, It's about time I made my very own MWG.
I don't see the point battul of pointing MWG to things when you have MWG of your own.

Heh

I like how you made the multiple angles for the ppw ship that's a really good idea. I might try doing something along those lines soonish.

Re: Pyro's Terran Empire- Now with more ship poses!

But then again this is based on Star Trek (I thinks) and I don't think your is based on anything, and the word Terran refers to the Earth and its inhabitants. Stefman has a StarCraft army representing the Terran faction as well :P

This Terran Empire is modeled after the mirror universe in Star Trek where everything is grimdark and awesome.

Alright, I want to put more ships in it, so I'll turn to you guys. Here's a selection of what I can expand on for my navy.

(See the spoiler for possible designs)
Spoiler: Constitution Refit

Spoiler: Miranda
[Image: 9APl8I1.jpg]

I probably could do all of them but which one is your favorite?

Re: Pyro's Terran Empire- Now with more ship poses!

Honestly the Prometheus is my favorite Federation ship because it looks the coolest and has the best gimmick. Outnumbered? Just split in three!

I always thought that might reduce overall combat effectiveness when you separate from the main power source, even with secondary reactors.

Re: Pyro's Terran Empire- Now with more ship poses!

I've actually come to a decision in my navy that I would focus only on the TOS-era ships. All TNG and ENT have been cut from the sprite sheet and into a separate sprite sheet to expand upon if someone wants to fight ENT or TNG era ships.

But for now, I'll focus on this classic era of Star Trek to work with.

Added The Reliant-Class. Unless I come up with more TOS ships, this'll be the last ship I draw in a little while.
