USS Discovery Battlecruiser Battle Ship Cruiser Turrets Big Battleship Giant

The USS Discovery is a Battlecruiser that is built with combat in mind. Armed to the teeth and very well-armored, it is capable of facing down almost any threat that can be expected in the environment of space.

To be effective in the combat environment, you need to hit hard. Very hard. When it comes to bringing the pain, the USS Discovery brings it in spades. It is armed with seventeen forward-mounted 429-block AMC arrays and two forward mounted 1,253 block SK-BB Missile arrays. Is also armed with six, triple-gun 31-block AMC turrets, and twenty, two-gun 17-block AMC turrets.

Now, being able to dish out punishment does you no good if you can't take any either. The design of the USS Discovery is very protection-oriented, and has 4 lines of defense. The first line of defense are the array of twenty, two-gun AMC turrets which are arranged in such a manner as to give each gun the maximum possible field of fire. The second line of defense is the shielding. The shield rating on this ship is 857,726 with a recovery rate of 14,693 s/sec. The Third line of defense is the hull itself. The ship is encased in solid hardened hull all around, with very few areas that aren't covered. Then, the final line of defense is really against infiltration. In order to prevent someone entering the ship and wreaking havoc inside, the ship has an extensive series of bulkheads that divide up hallways and staircases so that, even in the event of a hull breach, the ship can still be protected. Also, to prevent griefing through the computers, the faction block and the weapons computers are separated in their own, sealed-off room with no doors to prevent them from being accessed by individuals with malicious intent.

Now, outside of combat you might face a situation where you need to go somewhere, but you aren't able to take the USS Discovery all the way to your destination (Such as to the surface of a planet that lacks the facilities needed for the Discovery to land there). To face this issue, the Discovery is equipped with a small, lightly armed, shuttlecraft so that these small runs can be made.

Aside from this, the USS Discovery features 34 wardrooms, 2 mess halls, an officer's lounge, a conference room, a brig, a science lab, a dedicated Command & Control Center, a Navigation Room, an Engine Control Room, and a series of internal passageways that go throughout the ship that lead to the turrets, so that you don't have to go outside the ship to activate them. Also, the lower superstructure has a completely flat bottom so that the Discovery can land on the surface of a planet without the need of a docking port (provided that the surface of the planet has been adequately prepared for the Discovery to do so).

That's all I really have to say about the ship, other than that I hope you enjoy it and please tell me of any ways that this ship can be improved. This is my very first submission, so, be gentle. Hope you have a great time, see you in space!

Hehe, i love your ships but this one gets me the most, how do you get into the actual control room? i found a control room at the top of the ship but it doesn't move the ship, if you could tell me it'd be great! I had seen the pictures but i looked through the ship and nothing, and i do't want to break into the hull to damage the ship(s).

For some reason the chunk around the core isn't there upon loading it...

Even without the ship, your 5/5 description made me NEED to have it. There are a couple of things I want to address
(constructively) however:
You have a lot of small doors and the layout is kind of disorienting and tedious to navigate and find the core.
The reactors form a giant wall which isn't very efficient and could be improved.
The shielding system is no longer functional with the update (I can't remember which), so shields are now two part.

The fire and forget missiles are on their way out and need replacing. (The new module systems make this possible, there just needs to be a few tweaks.)

Just a personal preference, some of the ship and turrets look a little blocky, but I feel some diagonal half blocks could help.

With these I believe this could be an Eleven out of Ten.
