Behemoth-Class UNSC Frigate "The Desert's Spirit"
Built August 2012.
About this creation
Note: This backstory is completely from my imagination.

The Behemoth-Class Frigate, "The Desert's Spirit," began its lengthy term of service around 2549. It fought victoriously throughout the remainder of the Covenant-Human War. It was constructed at a dry-dock on the high desert of California. Its name was derived from its ability to maintain a semi-invisible status similar to a Spartan's Active Camo. In 2612, it mysteriously disappeared while investigating a Forerunner installation.





"The Desert's Spirit" was one humanity's greatest feats of engineering - at 23,550 ft. long, this ship was truly massive! A Covenant Corvette is shown for comparison.






The front of the ship was equipped with a stunning array of armament: 2 heavy coilguns and a behemoth-class coilgun (inside and at the back of the ship's front grooves) and a nuclear warhead launcher. Other armament includes additional warheads, hundreds of ODST Drop-Pods, and thousands of .88 - .379 mm cannons.






ODST Drop-Pod bays (each stud represents approx. 10 Pods) and observation deck/science lab (on bottom of ship).



Docking bays and bridge.



Yuuuummmm, greebles! :P









The engines. Also, I wanted to make this clear, but I loosely based this ship on a UNSC Frigate, so I used some artistic freedom. The "wings" on this are supposed to be where they are.



In extreme circumstances, the entire bridge can deploy from the main ship.





Thanks for looking! :)

this is a great build, but for that size in comparison to a covenant corvette, it should actually be a cruiser. Frigate is a naval term for any ship smaller and weaker than a destroyer but larger than a torpedo boat. covenant corvettes are larger than unsc frigates, so a ship larger than than must be a destroyer or cruiser. most destroyers are similar to frigates in size, being at most 30% bigger, so your creation would be in the cruiser size area. other than that, i love your creation and give it 5 heads. continue with the good work.

Looking at it from the side or front, it looks like a gun with a scope,but it's a great build though. I challenge you to make this ship in minifig scale. For example, if this micro version were 50 times the length of a micro minifig, take it and make a normal size ship that's 50 times the length of a normal minifig.

Quoting Brixwhiz . I'm not one to comment on spaceships, but this one really deserves it! You put a lot of work and details into this one. I do have one question though. Surely you don't own all those tan parts, so may I ask which (Bricklink?) store you got those pieces from? Thanks, and keep building!
Actually, I didn't order any bricks from Bricklink. All of those 1x1 cheese slopes are from the Tower Bridge set. I highly recommend it!

Quoting Tim C Ah, crap, Elliot. Sorry about the faux pas there. I was just looking at Andre Benjamin's works before I switched over to your frigate. I'd love to say that never happens, but I get names mixed up all the time. Well, I came back to this build to congratulate you for your spot on Across MOCpages, and to see if you would mind if I featured your ship on the My Current Favorites spot on my page sometime in the future. That's when I noticed my brain lapse. My apologies, sir.
Be my guest! And no worries on the whole name thing! :D

Quoting William Vandyk Very good, like the greeblies, although is that a bit of structural failure in the close up shot ;-)? 5*
No, it's held together by a few technic pins, but it has to be pulled out slightly to connect with something else that you can't see in the picture. Good eye though. :P

That is an epic ship right there. The color is amazing; the grey and tan go perfectly together.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Does the frigate have all those gears and fan belts?
Not really. But it's still pretty intricate. Here are a few different versions of a UNSC Frigate: http://images.wikia.com/halo/images/c/c3/FRIGATE_SCALE_COMPARISON.jpg

Quoting Michael Rutherford It's a good looking ship. But it does not look very "Halo-ish". The giant gears and fan belts are a bit distracting. They must be more than a thousand feet across. It's very punkish, and that in and of itself is not a bad thing, but it just doesn't mesh with the Halo style. The ship is photographed very well, and your pics illustrate the details quite effectively. I like the MOC, but it doesn't fit with your text. Just walk away from the whole Halo cult and build your own theme. If you stick with this style, it would be a very good theme indeed! Attack!
I think if it was all grey it would look almost exactly like a regular frigate. I just didn't want to do that because it seemed a little bland. I'll take your feedback into consideration for future builds though. :)

Quoting Prehistoric Echoes Very cool, but you do realize that this "frigate" dwarfs the largest UNSC military ship class (Marathon-class cruiser) by 19,640 feet...
Heh heh heh, yes. Ah, the joys of fan fiction...

Quoting Tim C Goodness, Andre, this is phenomenal. One of your best works yet. I love the greebling. Repeating the circular features there really adds something to the build. The coloring is the perfect pick. The thrusters look good, though my favorite part is the front. Well done!
Andre? Oh well... :P
