The Olympic was created by request for a friend who wanted visualization for a ship in a story they were working on. As such, it is my design but not my concept. I was given a list of components/systems that the ship must have, and conferred with my client at several points to make sure that my design was similar to what they had in mind.
This ship is a long-range colonization vessel, carrying some 20,000 colonists in suspended animation. Only a small bridge crew remains awake to monitor the ship. It is equipped with main drives plus maneuvering engines, bays to drop colonization pods to the planet's surface, and long-range comm equipment to remain in contact with home.
Sure does look predatory for a non-military ship. Perhaps someday I should create a 'military retrofit' version of it.
