Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist I love this ship. Great use of a small assortment of parts to make a brilliantly cohesive build... And that guy might want to go the the doctor and have a private checkup. ;)
Captain Daddy is fine. He's just a bit frustrated with the 'Tres Marķas' (in more ways than one). LOL!

Quoting Michal Hennel Great sense of humor :D Aside from that, many parts were use very uniquely, and an idea to use orb is great :D Also, mounting those minifigures into such part is great ... Thing I like the most are skeleton legs on rear part :D
Thanks for noticing the skeleton legs. It took awhile to make that section look a bit interesting.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Ah! So good to see the Phoenix Militia back in action...WITH Captain Daddy and the kitty! What is up with the SWOOSH pic? Was it taken in an art museum? Love the use of the sphere and the wrap around outer structure. Definitely a unique approach. Attack!
Thanks, Mr. R! The cross stitched background was a graduation gift.

Quoting Tim C Wow! Great work, Master Shifu. Great use of the planet piece. I love how you tucked a cockpit in the middle of it. The weaponry is also excellent. Not only does it have that distinct sci-fi look, but also very believable. Great work, and good luck in the contest.
Thanks! I have not built a spacecraft for a while and the contest is a good excuse to build one + feature the P.M.S. occasionally. XD

Quoting Keith Goldman I applaud your choice in swooshing background, the artistic b@@bies will no doubt increase your score. Very original ship dude, not just some elongated Star Wars fighter or re-colored official set. Way to rock it.
Thanks Keith!

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga Excellent use of the sphere! My only critique on this is that the sphere seems disjointed from the rest of the ship. Perhaps if you made parts of the arms the same grey as the sphere, it might flow better.
Thanks! Unfortunately, it's the only planet I could steal, er, borrow, from the kids' collection since I do not own any Star Wars set.

Quoting Alex Sonny Awesome little design! Where is the orb from? Is it a star wars set?
Thanks! It was from LEGO Star Wars Republic Assault Ship and Planet Coruscant (75007).

Great use of the planet pieces. I love how the frame wraps around and also hinges the ship open. I never realised that there was so much room inside! It would be great if you'd add your ship to this group: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/21377
