Re: A Veritable Cloud of Ships

The design of Vorlon and Minbari ships is incredible, without any cubic shapes or 90 degrees angles.I also like the Star Furies.They are not very powerful but their ability to manoeuvre is impressive.

According to Ron Thornton, his inspiration for the vorlon ship design was actually based on garlic.

Re: A Veritable Cloud of Ships

Yes, Garlic!

I followed a link i found on another thread that has a lot of info on the ships of b5. Some really neet stuff. But i forgot to bookmark it. I think the thread was Need Episode Suggestions.

The designer for the Narn ships said his first idea was to have them made of wood.

Re: A Veritable Cloud of Ships

My favorite B5 ship is one of the First Ones ships in "Into the Fire." It's big and it's apparently in pieces and it glows, and it seems like when it fires its main cannon, run for cover... preferrably to the next galaxy over.

This one?




It's a bit too Mr Potato Head for my tastes.

I think one ship I really do love, is the First One ship that looks like a bunch of almonds glued together. It's primary weapon seems to be a rapid pulse firing energy projectile:

Cool pix Galahad. Both of those look cool, but neither looks like any description of a ship to me.

Eh? But those were the ships from the series!

Here's a clip I find a youtube that show them kicking butt to the sound of Queen.

Re: A Veritable Cloud of Ships

Yeah, that first one is the one I was thinking of, Galahad; I mean, the flare of its main gun is almost as big as the whole ship! How can you not love that?

Re: A Veritable Cloud of Ships

Sorry, my bad, I wasn't specific enough in my former post. I know they're ships from the show, but they don't look like ships to me. Not the way the ships of the younger races, even the Minbari, do.
