Imperial Null-ship
Electronic countermeasures ship
About this creation
First prototype of an idea for an Imperial Electronic Warfare Ship. Got the idea from looking at a pictures of the E6 Prowler (a cool looking plane in itself) The role of the Prowler is to both passively monitor enemy communications and also jam/distort their comm network. Why not design a version for the Star Wars universe? I had a look in Wookieepedia to see if their was anything already existing but couldn't find a dedicated Electronic warfare ship. (If there already is a EWS let me know. There's now shortage of other Imperial craft in their navy tho..."Dungeon ship" anyone?)

2 things I try to bear in mind when doing Imperial ships: Blocky angles and grey, LOTS of grey. Oh, and I wanted to get away from all the TIE fighter variations too. But really it's just an excuse to indulge my liking for tower/vertical spaceships.

I envisage this ship being escorted by a couple of TIEs, maybe in an orbital pattern, as the Null-ship does it's sweeps.

I do have some misgivings: It is still a bit too curvy I think. Also having one pilot take care of both flying and all the electronic workload is silly, but I don't have enough grey bricks yet to do a 2 or 3 seater version.

   Grumpy pilot. You would be too if you had to sit for hours in this thing!

Nice MOC! And, I hear you're from Australia? Maybe you'd like to see my "Road Train"!

Well, Null is definitely the right word for this unimaginitive piece of trash (for those not paying attention, this is a joke and Shannon is well aware of my posting these types of reviews. You'll notice he gets 5's on all of them.) Later ~ Chris.

Don't know here you get such original ideas... Very cool ! I love in particular the little 2x2 round parts under the cockpit, it looks very good on this design !

great job, and good idea too. i know about some star wars dungeon ship, it is all black and very boxy, maybe you could make it. although i wish i remembered more about it...

That's pretty nifty. The shape is unusual for a spaceship. I think it might look cooler if you put a bunch of antennae and radar dishes all over it, and maybe one of those Imperial symbol pieces (visit this website to see what I'm talking about: www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=4150ps5). Plus, it would be great if you did a 2 or 3 seater version with a more detailed cockpit.
