STELLAR-CLASS SUBSIDIZED LINER

Now let's try to recreate the work of the master of Traveller art.
This painting was drawn in reference to
William H. Keith: The Traveller Book, Game Designers Workshop, pp.65, 1982

The owners of subsidized liners receive assistance in meeting the construction costs for their ships, and in return a portion of the ship's revenue must be paid to the subsidy provider. A wide range of ships meet the standards for a subsidized liner; one specific type, labelled the Stellar class is dealt with in detail here.

STELLAR-CLASS SUBSIDIZED LINER

This painting was drawn in reference to
Steve Venters: CT Adventure 13 Signal GK, pp.18, 1985

The Stellar class subsidized liners feature a sleek hull with pleasing lines to appeal to passengers, it is streamlined and the ship is capable of entering atmosphere and has provision for landing on world surfaces. The most striking feature of the ship is the large saucer located forward; it serves as a passenger lounge.

STELLAR-CLASS SUBSIDIZED LINER

The ship's single launch is carried slung beneath the lower deck. The launch dock holds the launch when the ship is in motion. With the launch absent, access is possible through the air lock which services the launch. Even with the launch present, access is possible through the maintenance air lock located to port of the launch socket.

20dt LAUNCH

The launch is a 20-ton vessel intended for small, routine errands and communication from orbit to surface. A launch allows passengers to be ferried to the surface of a world, or act as a life boat in emergencies.

Only Sivva-class. I am now researching Zhodani capital ships in the FFW.
The only Zhodani capital ships that ever had any semi-official visual designs were some from the game "Power Projection: Fleet". These miniatures were made for them:


The ships are, in descending order of size, the Viepchakl class battleship, the Kefchenzh class armored cruiser, the Zhdavldlits class light cruiser and the Zhdiak class destroyer.
The visual designs were (very) loosely based on the crude silhouette drawings I made when originally contributing the designs to "Power Projection: Fleet".

I've attached the silhouettes and the High Guard design files to this post (also including one other ship, the Vrapkenchkinj class light battlecruiser). I think I also had some fluff text for them (should be present in PP: Fleet) which I can't find atm.

P.S.: The pictures are not to scale, obviously.

The only Zhodani capital ships that ever had any semi-official visual designs were some from the game "Power Projection: Fleet". These miniatures were made for them:
Counters in CT-era Fifth Frontier War were done by GDW.
 
The counter silhouettes in FFW were the same for Imperial and Zhodani forces, so arguably they do not represent faction specific ships. (And to my knowledge, no counter on either side was ever associated with a specific class of ship.)

Also, I think most if not all of the silhouette designs were re-used from previous GDW games such as Imperium.

AFAIK, the largest canonical (due to its appeareance in TNE's "Brilliant Lances") Zhodani warship to be described in detail before PP:Fleet was the 2000-ton Vlezhdatl class strike cruiser. Unfortunately, its original HG design (like several of FASA's designs) was illegal by the rules (far too many weapons.)

STELLAR-CLASS SUBSIDIZED LINER

The ship is a standard design which is widely available within the Imperium. Its class name indicates that its members are named for stars or star-connected items. Some ship names come from major stars (Castor, Pollux, Deneb), minor stars (Wolf 359, Dreesen, Fonteyn's Star), or stellar phrases or foreign language terms (Per Aspera, Ad Astra, Gwiazda, der Stern, Morning Star, Iruud).
