    Very pretty and vaguely floral and organic. The symmetry is very satisfying. They are interesting even if just as graphical elements. :techman:

    Would be interesting to see how you imagine other perspectives.

    They look like ornaments, and I mean that as a compliment.:mallory:

    I updated the first post with 3 more dorsal view hulls...

    Thanks! I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks :)

    Atolm, I love these! But they're not like the original straight-line CATamarans, so I have to hate them. But the originals are bland and boring, and these look so alien!

    Have you done any Kzinti yet?

    LOL...thanks.
    I did keep both the trimaran and catamaran concepts, but I tried to make it more exotic... Or as you stated alien ;)
    I also opted a single hull design philosophy on their smallest of vessels, but kept it uniform by implementing the hour-glass overall hull shapes of the fleet.
    As for the Mirak... I've been thinking on it (I do have a couple of older designs...but I might have to do some updating). I am thinking that they would be another offshoot of the Kzin(ti).

    As always, I look forward to all the work you produce. Your designs are always fascinating and so clean. And inspirational, too! In thinking about my own approach to doing hypothetical Lyran ships, I came up with a new way to model some of these shapes in Blender. I might have to dust off my old SFB miniatures and start a thread of PsionVerse SFB warships!

    Here is my attempt to reconcile the enigma of the Kzinti of TAS and the Mirak of SFB fame.
    (I believe I can work with this compromise)
