Not the most accurate models, but still nice looking.

Hence the word "inspired".

Some nice artwork indeed. I like the first one especially, it's almost close enough to pass as a Cruiser. :)

I like the second one...It looks top me like the Earthlings backwards engineered the Precursor tug. I like it.

One small change though, make the front bay doors an open launcher for missiles like the first picture or similar.

All in all, great job...adding to my collection.

Well, the landers gotta land somewhere...

What!? No transporter technology....*grumble**grumble*

I forgot about that. Disregard change request. It's fine the way it is. Carry on.

I think these are awesome. Plus there's nothing saying that all Earthling cruisers have to look the same either.  Do all boats look the same? Do all jets look the same?

My favorite is actually the second one. To me, it feels more realistic.  Like an older Earth ship. I see those yellow tanks as fuel or oxygen tanks. You could even have a crew pod rotating to create gravity. I'm never sure how all these ships have gravity, but it would be theoretically possible that those 'graviton emitters' take up a bunch of energy. Keep up the good work! I want to see more :)

Looks great!  I like them both, but if it was a choice of owning one or the other,  I'd go for the second.  It just has this several compartments and and bays and stuff.  Love them!
