Hello again. There's not much to show this time, but what I have is good, and desired by some fans. Would have finished these sooner, but trouble is ever on the horizon it seems. For Babylon 5 stuff, i had wanted to work my way up, starting with Earth Alliance/Earthforce, working my way around the younger races, then cap it all off with Vorlon, Shadown, Drakh and Interstellar Alliance stuff. But, I know my own habits all too well, and there's no guarentee that i would finish this undertaking, surely not in a reasonable amount of time (I'm only one guy). And, I have recieved emails requesting THIS particular ship. And, I've also had a strong urging to get right to it. So, without further adieu, I give you the ISA White Star Destroyer, a ship of impressive stature and firepower. In games crossed over with Star Wars, this ship could take on an Imperial Star Destroyer or three, perhaps even challenge, if not beat, a Super Star Destroyer, and it could definitely give an actual Death Star a good scare if it unleashes the power of its Quantum Discharge Cannon. To follow up with this, we also have the ISA White Star Medium Cruiser, a light capital ship that, in the right hands and with its special rules, can take on ships many times its size and power, yet is agile and advanced enough to fight other starfighters. Before doing up the destroyer, I worked on the original White Star to give me a basis to start from and expand on. But wait, there's more! There are several other ISA ships that I'm working on, and the White Star is the basis for just about all of them. Thanks to the internet for providing some impressive pictures to use, haha! Also, we have the Hyperspace Jump-Point Engines and Hyperspace Jumpgate listed in "EQUIPMENT" in the Babylon 5 part of Starships D6, and they are also listed in the general Equipment part of Starships D6 for use as crossover material (Hyperspace Jumpgate, Hyperspace Jump-Point Engines). Of note, there have been talks of Hyperspace Gates in the history of the Star Wars galaxy, and the B5 jumpgates would make a good stand in for these. And last but not least, I reworked the Gravimetric Drive Propulsion System in Starships D6 Equipment, fleshing it out and making it a more generalized entry not juyst for the Grobyc. It's a fitting piece of gear for use by more advanced raves in the Star Wars universe! *Later Added*...ISA Valen Cruiser, ISA Snub-Nose White Star Transport (AKA Blue Star), ISA White Star Gunship.

Hello everyone. Today we bring you Babylon 5 Earth Alliance package part 4. Today is a bit of a treat for anyone who loves Corellian ships like the YT series. In B5, there was this space trabsport that kept popping up through the series, and there were several variants to it. After watching the series again recently, i got the idea that this ship could be Babylon 5's version of a YT series of ships made in different modular configurations as needed. So I did some hunting for any pics I could find, and here's a few of the ones I've done so far: Earth Alliance Skylark 500, Earth Alliance Skylark 550, Earth Alliance Skylark 600, Earth Alliance Skylark 650, Earth Alliance Skylark 670, Earth Alliance Skylark 700, Earth Alliance Skylark 720, and Earth Alliance Skylark 790 with more to come. "Skylark" was just a name I found for these transports online, and I figured let it stick as these ships needed a name. For other competeing transports we have Earth Alliance TA-150 transport and Earth Alliance TA-300 Transport, the bigger capital version to the TA-150 (and a handy variant for anyone who thinks the TA-150 should be larger). Also introducing the Earth Alliance Kestrel Shuttle, a transatmospheric transport that was about as common as the crew shuttles and Skylarks, even more so in crusade. The Icarus, the ship that left on its fated journey to kick off the Second Shadow War. The Skydancer, the heavily modified crew shuttle variant made survey ship and owned by Catherine Sakai. There's also the Earthforce Troop Transport, a ship that only made an appearance once or twice in the series. Finding a pic of this one was very hard, as any scenery from footage wasn't very good and this one pic used here was the best i could find online (if anyone can find a better pic, i'd gladly swap it out!). Last but not least, we have the Earthforce Warlock Destroyer, the mightiest ship ever built by the Earth Alliance for Earthforce use (if you don't include the Excalibur and Victory, which were technically Interstellar Alliance property, also coming up in the future!). Except for a few more ships, that about wraps it up for Earth Alliance/Earthforce, then we move on to other races and organizations. Anyone have a favorite they'd like to see first?
So I've been watching Babylon 5 again. It's a show I've loved since it first aired in the 90s. But when I saw it I was a kid and didn't understand the deeper parts of the plot and character development (I was paying more attention to the cool starships, lol). Now that i've been watching it again, I'm also being blown away and amazed by it also all over again. Fantastic series, despite what anyone out there says. J. Michael Straczinsky knows his stuff. So, I wanted to take a crack at some ships from the series. I know we already have some on here, and they are very well done I think. But sometimes I like to take a crack at something myself, do the homework, see what kind of approach I'd take on things. And this way we get more variety in what to use. The different stats could even be variants of that class of ship. So today I give you Earthforce Olympus Class Corvette, Earthforce Hyperion Class Heavy Cruiser, Earthforce Nova Class Dreadnought, Earthforce Omega Class Destroyer, Starfury Space Fighter and Starfury Thunderbolt Transatmospheric Fighter, all for Babylon 5 Earthforce package part 1. Enjoy! *Feb 4* Hopped back on to modify the Omega Destroyer's Fusion Launchers, as well as the Starfury and Starfury thunderbolt, mostly over/under powered balance issues. *couple days later* Thanks to a call-out from a fan of the site, the Nova Dreadnought is fixed!
