Feast yer eyes on the nimbly-bimbly-est starship the the whole galaxy. Yeehaw!
About this creation
This ship is only 6 months old or so. 'Twas a quick little build that was lots of fun, though it's not as swooshable as I'd like. The wings have this obnoxious tendency to fall off, and those arrays of binocular-pieces are quite annoying to line up correctly.
The Taeraesis-class Fast Destroyer represents the last word in starship agility. Endowed with the Empire's most sophisticated warp-stabilization systems (the funky binocular/bar arcs at the ends of the wings) and an incredibly powerful elastic drive, the Taeraesis can accelerate extremely quickly and maintain incredible agility at the highest warp speeds. (Larger ships such as Battlecruisers can attain similar linear accelerations and speeds, but warp instability sharply reduces maneuverability at these velocities.)
While not exactly blistering with weapons emplacements, the Taeraesis has just enough weaponry to make a dent where it counts: a heavy slicer beam GMP on the nose of the ship is complimented by four disruptor pulse GMP's on the wings (two face forward, two face backward), a belly-mounted turret, and missile launchers.
A specially modified Taeraesis, the Amathion, is Phoenix Queen Myonel's preferred personal starship, and she has on occasion led fleets into battle in person. A skilled Taeraesis pilot can fly circles around fleets of more sluggish ships, dealing needling strikes that can soften larger enemy targets.
