Mystery ship from Star Wars Uprising

Recommended Posts

Looks like an Ebon Hawk met the Millenium Falcon in a bar, got drunk and then .... well you know the rest. Ship is ugly.

 

 

 

edit: It's an ugly child of two nice ships.

Shoot, it's possible to make something pretty out of that.

There's a whole lot of lazy ugly in that artwork. I mean, does every game HAVE to have a Falcon clone of some kind?

You know, that was my first, original complaint about Rebels, aside from it being yet another story about Rebellion Members, was that it was yet another to have a freaking CEC ship as their home base / main ship.

I got over that pretty quick though, The Ghost is certainly different enough to excuse it.

But this thing is just ugly as hell.

But then, people like the AWESOME 5-wing Alpha-class xg1 Starwing Assault Gunboat Adonis of all starfighters, so (smiles).

Fixed that for ya.

Also, yeah we do see a lot of Falcon clones...making a ship smaller or larger than that range puts it out of scale with fighters and other small transports and also out of the firepower range that should be available to a small rag tag band of rebels/pirates.

But then, people like the stupid 5-wing lambda gunboat abomination, so (shrugs).

 

It's a rule of Star Wars games/series... must have Falcon clone, must have Han Solo analogue, must have R2/C-3PO analogues (though HK, well, he is technically a protocol droid), and must have some token alien companion.

 

The assault gunboat on the other hand is the 2nd most amazing thing to come out of the TIE Fighter game, beaten only by the Defender.

S**t I'm guilty of all of this from some standpoint.

But then, people like the terrible"I put wings on your wings! 5-wing gunboat flying mistake of a design.

You're right, I hate that lousy excuse for a ship too. It wangs chung. Hard. Like calling an english muffin "sophisticated breakfast cousine." or a Gremlin a "great, safe car." It's like the designers just gave up and the art director was blind. I mean, what the hell were they thinking? You can't put 5 wheels on a BMW and call it a Lamborghini. That's just stupid. Holy hell, if everyone did that the world would be so full of badly designed crapola our eyeballs would melt out of our sockets out of sheer disgust. Luckily there are things called standards now, and garbage like that doesn't escape any self-respecting design studio worth its salt. 5 wings. What a joke. Had to wash my brain out after that one by watching six hours of Rick and Morty. Anyhoo, back to my posting.

Also, yeah we do see a lot of Falcon clones...making a ship smaller or larger than that range puts it out of scale with fighters and other small transports and also out of the firepower range that should be available to a small rag tag band of rebels/pirates.

 

 

Re-fixed it for myself. Fixed yours too. Thanks, though.

You know, that was my first, original complaint about Rebels, aside from it being yet another story about Rebellion Members, was that it was yet another to have a freaking CEC ship as their home base / main ship.

I got over that pretty quick though, The Ghost is certainly different enough to excuse it.

But this thing is just ugly as hell.

Mate that Ebon Falcon of yours is a thing of beauty! Where can I get one? FFG this should be in wave 9!

It's the Smuggler's Starship from Star Wars: The Old Republic. Most of SWTOR's ships feel like homages to one or more film ships. The Imperial Agent's ship is Queen Amidala's Shuttle meets Maul's Sith Infiltrator. The Jedi classes' ship is that republic shuttle from the opening of the Phantom Menace with a hammerhead. The Bounty Hunter's is a Firespray. The Trooper's is a giant B-wing. The sith's ship looks like a Tie Advanced mixed with Maul's Infiltrator again.

 

The XS Freightor  and X-70B Phantom are very much sucesses. Some of the others, well, I leave that for you to decide if you care to look.

 

When dogfighting (as opposed to the rail shooter the game was released with) was released, you got a lot more variety in ships especially since each system you equiped changed the look (This was particularly notable with the engines on bombers). I can't actually find a compilation of the starfighter's appearances on the site, or I'd link that as well.

I have always argued that this game needs a non-combat shuttle-like ship much like this.

 

Now hear me out. A small base, plastic model ship that can be utilized for all 3 factions. Rather than 4 pilots, it comes with 4 "versions" each with a different stat line. A ship that can be used for narrative missions, like escorts, rescues or kidnapping. Basically, a fully realized "senator's shuttle."

Played SWOTOR but never the smuggler so I'd forgotten about this ship, there were a few cool ones in that game.
