Just when I thought the Chronicles of Man universe was getting a bit stale on the designs, seeing such a unique shape is very refreshing.
Without a doubt it's one of the most original ships I have seen lately, but at the same it all seems cohesive and fitting. The bright color of the hull and orange highlights make its shapes defined and pretty memorable.
There's not much that could be considered as a downside to the image, but I think that it could be a little bit more detailed. Just a few more panel lines could do wonders to the shape, along with small position lights on the tips of the extrusions.
However, overall it's a very detailed drawing with thought-out shapes and nice twists such as the rounded intrusions located before the vertical wings. It will be hard to continue with a lineage on this vessel because of it's uniqueness, but I hope it will become an inspiration to more CoM ships.
What do you think?

Thanks for the praise. It was a simple design but I consider it one of the better I made. Lots to learn I guess :D

I would thing it'd be spelled as Karyu in Rumanji. Still pronounced the same.

I like how Orson Scott Card did it in Xenocide and Children of the Mind, especially with the Japanese. Basically, the culture had gotten so far removed from historic Japanese Culture - as it's starting to already - and the people tried so hard to return to it that they overstepped and got it right, if not too strictly so, in some manners, but completely missed the mark or ignored other aspects.

Then again, this is XXXX number of years in the future. Culture changes.

Was actually thinking about a ship of similar design for a while. Problem I came across was docking, and, even if landing flat, would take up considerable space unless you wall-mount dock them.

They can always upgrade the bridge, that's cool. But could it module detach in an emergency as a escape pod?

I love the way you made the front. Does the bridge eject and act like a lifeboat? Because it looks like it might.

well noticed it is indeed able to be detached yet I was thinking more into modular designs so when upgraded a new module can be added

I love this design, It kind of makes sense to me.

From the fact you said "Found on Battle cruisers" I have One question, how are they carried. Usually vessels carried internally are fairly compact, with folding wings or shapes that make them easy to store.

I actually had an image in my head of thee being carried attached to the outer hull with special docking collars/launch racks.

Superdreadnoughts (that carry them) are quite big and in this case they are dropped sort of speak. Like you said launchracks

like this one alot. has a kind of nautical vibe, like a sailing vessel, have you seen that building in dubai, the burj al arab? it reminds me of the huge ship found at the bottom of the ocean in the movie sphere. cant wait to see her finished. more awesome from manos.
