Loki Class destroyer model

This is JTResin's rendition of Jackill's lovely little Excelsior-era popsicle ship. I think it's the prettiest destroyer anyone's ever designed.

I created aztecking decals by altering the downloadable Carlos Zangrando aztec art for the saucer, and made some of my own for the nacelle.

I also made my own name and registry decals - for some reason Franz Joseph's Shaitan has always been a cool-sounding name to me.

Finish is Tamiya pearl white.









In know the megaphaser pylons are supposed to cant inward, but that just looked odd to me. I think it looks more like horns my way (as apropos for a "Loki" named after a devil). I also ditched the "stinger" megaphaser, whose forward nozzle aimed straight into the engine!

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Excellent work, as usual!

I like this design - it seems better proportioned than other destroyer / "popsicle ship" examples. It's actually kind of graceful.

Is that a hangar deck below the "horns?" One pet peeve of mine regarding most single-nacelle ships is the lack of a shuttlebay.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Huh i just looked at the rear mega Phaser on the schematic weird i never noticed it there....

IMHO for a destroyer shes very well armed 0o Id label the design a Heavy Cruiser or Battle Frigate

Has anyone version of this design but in typical Saucer, Secondary hull, 2 Nacelles combo?

I've always had a soft spot for this design.

Interesting that you picked Shaitan for a "horned" variant, since the Arabic word "Shaytan" is the origin of our western word "Satan" (though the devil in Christian mythology is quite a different animal from the devil in Islamic mythology).

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Funny how the 1701-B saucer would have been a better option for the impulse engines, as that's the one nit I have with this.

I love that you went with the coppery engine grilles as opposed to lit ones.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

This may have been one of Jackill's designs, but IIRC, it is predated by the first, less armed incarnation, the Joshua Class Command Cruiser. Cygnus X1 has the original blueprints, supposedly by Shane Johnson. While the publication date is unclear, I do recall getting this set at a con at least a year or two before the Jackills datasheets started producing the variants.

And yes, I always loved this brand of Excelsior-era variants on the original designs. I always felt they really worked, aesthetically.

Not quite. The English word "Satan" derives from the Hebrew term "Ha-satan" which means "resister" or "opposer" and was in use for over a thousand years before the prophet's doings and sayings were recorded in the Qur'an.

However, as both Arabic and Hebrew derive from a common lingual ancestor (Central Semitic) it's possible that the two words share a common root rather than one having been derived from the other.

Wikipedia wrote:
Shaitan (شيطان) is the equivalent of Satan in Islam. While Shaitan (شيطان, from the root šṭn شطن) is an adjective (meaning "astray" or "distant," sometimes translated as "devil") that can be applied to both man ("al-ins", الإنس) and Jinn, Iblis (Arabic pronunciation: [ˈibliːs]) is the personal name of the Devil who is mentioned in the Qur'anic account of Genesis.
So, Shaitan in the context of "Astray" or, perhaps even more appropriately, "Distant" could be a perfectly appropriate name for a starship.
