Sparrow class carrier

I win :D
Knew someone'd be me to it. Knew it was the Sparrow when I saw the (for lack of a better term) Master Systems Display.

I love how there's always such a significant contrast between the Cirin and Darani decor and design.

The Cirin tends towards the obvious Russian stereotype of undecorated, dark, functional with an almost steampunk feel while the Daranir lean towards the U.S. stereotype of prestine, well lit with a well cut and polished feel almost like a hospital crossed with a church.

I remember my Grandad (a Scottish Engineer for the coal mines) commenting that they once asked a U.S. and a Russian company to provide a design for a car system that would go up and down a steep mine shaft. The U.S. company designed it as close to their estimates of exactly what power was needed with all sorts of little bells and whistles added in, but there was no room for error and it would constantly break with small problems in it's complex and delecate design. The Russian company just slapped together some monstrosity with about 3 times the power they roughly estimated to be required and it worked like a charm, performing the job effortlessly.

I caught the Sparrow class carrier on my second glance. I may not be in the supporters club but I also remember the character Stardust as Kari's wing commander from chapter 2 page's 18 and 19. So far that is a known pilot and possibly the same Sparrow that was at White-Rim. The thing that has me looking forward to the next chapter is to see if the Sirius, the carrier Kari was flying off of at White-rim, will be be at Farhaven. Also glancing back at the end of chapter 11 I noticed the news report about the United Terran Coalition saying they would take action. I am thinking may be who the Cirin Alliance fleet was waiting Admiral Novois was waiting for.

The RAF pilots said they were attached to the R.S. Sirius(panel 5 of 12:11), so I'd suspect that the Sirius is around somewhere, not too far away.

I really like how the sun illuminates the bridge and brightenens everything up :)
Not everything is dark and gloomy... like this contrast.

But what's that glow on the planet?
Some pithy statement goes here.

Trouble.

Did not spot it when I read the page the first time. It could be a hunter killer but it unlike any crimson dark ship technology we have seen before if that the case.

Thanks javcs I don't know how I missed that. I am hopeing for a rematch of all the players from White-Rim Except with Kari on the opposite side.

I think that glow is merely the reflection of the nearby star.
I am not sure though if it should look like that. I'll leave it to the experts... :)
