UES Merrimack CG-137 "Big Bad Merri"

About this creation

Note: The name of this ship comes from a series of novels by R.M. Meluch called Tour of the Merrimack, which centers on an American Monitor-class space battleship called Merrimack. And yes, I know the historical ship Merrimack from the Battle of Hampton Roads was actually called CSS Virginia during the battle with USS Monitor; hence why the second ship of the class is named Virginia :)

A big thanks to Cody G for use of his cannon design!
