Level 63 : High Grandmaster Caveman
829
No dictator... No invader... Can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand. The Centauri learned this lesson once. We will teach them again. Though it may take a thousand years, we will be free.


From the Babylon 5 Universe, here comes the G'Quan Heavy Cruiser, backbone of the Narn Regime military.

If I said how amazing this build is there would be an insta-ban's worth of profanity proceeding it, due to the fact this is overwhelmingly well done. Diamond and favourite, my subscription is already there!

The Narn Heavy Cruiser is probably my fav ship from B5. Not because its one of the best looking ships in the game, but because of its series history and use in the B5 universe.

The G'Tok for example, managed to escape the Centauri / Narn war in tact, later to be protected by Babylon 5 as repair and resupply was provided. One of the best episodes in the series, and why I like them so much. The G'Tok later entered into the Army of Light to fight against the Shadows.

Giving a ship a little background and history can go a long ways towards connecting with viewers, and re-creating it here in MineCraft allows us all to enjoy it in yet another fantastic way! I only wish I could give more than one diamond :)

And you're right, I should be a little less lazy and write an actual background on the ships I build :-)

Sweet, what I said wasn't a dig though in any way! I was just explaining why I liked it so much, JMS gave the ships a little background in the show I meant :)

Not to forget that Narn G'Quans were the first to destroy a Shadow battlecrab in a battle (even if it took 3 of them :-p)

Thanks a lot, I'm flattered! I'm trying to do a tutorial on how I build my ships for the contest, maybe you can learn some useful tips there ;-)

Don't be. :/ Have you seen my work? Extremely intermediate. And yes, I'm sure I will learn something from your tutorial(s).
i am going to download this and make a video of me setting a nova bomb off on it from explosives+ :D (btw i love it!)

Very cool. Will be updating my Babylon 5 either tomorrow or Saturday. Have an MCEdit pic of your 2 ships and Momentaneously's and Sylergcs shadowcrabs for size comparison with my Babylon 5. Even with a 1024 long Babylon 5 your battle cruiser is huge. 1100 long is about as big as my computer can handle on binvox (length of my V'ger).
dose it have a inside you can walk in???? :?

Although I have the deck plans, the scale of the ship is 1/2, so I think that the interiors would not look too good if I were to build them... So no interiors (for now, but if there is an overwhelming demand from the community, I might give it a try some day...)

Given the level of detail I was thinking it could have been a 3d model loaded into a voxel converter. That's just how good it looks! Amazing job!

No, I haven't done the interiors. I have the blueprints but the ship is not to scale, therefore I wouldn't be able to build some of the decks...

I've never tried the mod, but I imagine that given the dimensions of the ship, the lag would be awful :-)
the mod lets you fly anything you can build, i think they have a wiki to help you, i have a imod installer well actully its not mine its very handy
maybe but it would be fun to ride maybe considering a cockpit
a diamond is worth a whole ship :)
