Drone 'n Corvette by Daemoria Drone 'n Corvette by Daemoria
Small scale fleet assets.

Drone is used in a interceptor and long-range precision role, while the corvette functions as a long range missile platform. While equipped with 2 siege beams, it lacks the armor or heat capacitors required for extended capital fleet combat, and is better suited for convoy escort and pirate interdiction.

This is not part of any particular universe, just some insomnia sketches that might turn into something.

I have read your works and the general armaments of the ships you do seem to be multiple missile barrages and siege beams - err "superlasers?"

Siege beams are superlasers I suppose. The require a large capacitor charge or something, and as such require targets to be relatively motionless.

This is not part of Bright future by the way, Laser weapons are something that is more of a 'fantasy scifi' trope, that I avoid in that setting.

Okay - I go with that - so the stuff with the laughing swarm and psicomp (I assume Bright future) - they use autocannons and missiles right?

Additionally, there is the use of directed energy based Close-in-weapon-systems. These are the purple beams seen in some of the sequential images.
Some of the capital ship based weapons are demonstrated here. -> < imgur.com/a/1Ernl >

A parasite is any craft larger than a drone that has its own life support system that is carried by a much larger craft.

Some vessels have internalized parasite bays, such as that corvette, while others have points for parasites to attach to the hull surface.

homeworld is really the only good example of spacecraft in a very advanced future.

halo comes close to getting it right with the covey ships, but the human vessels just look like flying guns most of the time.

Actually, I suppose the USS Saluco from the Alien films is the originator of the Human ship designs, but that's actually a decent spacecraft.

Oh Sulaco, you and the thousands of dreams you spawned.

But yes, Homeworld is so far unmatched when it comes to spaceship and space combat design. EVE comes close but it's not the same.
