As many allies of the Great and Mighty Scythian Empire will have no doubt have known by now, since the Immortal War began - Scythia has been searching for allies to take up arms against this extragalactic menace, offering advanced technologies and favourable trading rights to anyone willing to take up arms, and offering exclusive use of their Rigel Kentaurus shipyards to any nations without the capacity to build spacecraft for themselves.

The Genoan Republics where one of the many pre-space flight races that the Scythians approached with such an offer, and they accepted with open arms. Over the course of months and years they have been given a crash course in modern galactic technologies and combat applications, essentially making over 500 years worth of advancements in as little as 4 years. Today, their first space worthy battleship, the "Trident" class has moved out of their production lines.

Its ethos in Scythian technologies is obvious by its hull design, along with its tri-barrelled laser turrets - its missile systems and antimatter generators and engine systems, the true jewel of the class is its armour and shield generator systems, which the Genoan designers poured their heart and soul into making a ship capable of taking any beating at any range - the Trident is built to outlast any conflict through sheer force of will.

The first few models of this class are only just rolling off the production lines, how they will fare alongside their Scythian cousins remains to be seen.

Seems a little under-armed, but I like the sleek lines and color scheme.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

That was the point of the design, it's under armed but over-armoured, with heavily redundant shields and bulkheads.

One thing I forgot to add to the initial post, mostly due to being in a fucking rush - those barrels at the front are meant to be part of a fucking huge rail gun, arcing back to the Genoan history with projectile weaponry, keeping a part of their heritage in the design.

I like the shape, it looks like something heavily influenced by th Scythians, and still with it's own feel.

I like the sleekness and the color scheme is decidedly attractive.

That doesn't mean it won't be effective, it can probably take a volley from all those fancy immortal weapons and lol the enemy fleet to death
