EVE online_Samalah by David-Holland EVE online_Samalah by David-Holland
My entry for the EVE contest. I decided to do something a little different :D

The Samalah is a repurposed derelict. Much of it's outer hull has broken apart giving it a fractured appearance, its strength and integrity remains despite this. It's suspected this vessel used to be much larger but due to the damage and age of the ship the exact size or shape cannot be determined.

I had lots of fun designing this! Any excuse to draw a spaceship :D

Yes I know this is an old sub but I was wandering Deviant Art and came across this.


A pirate carrier. Theres a concept that CCP should really put in. Something like this should cost around 3/4 of a titan and there should be no perm blueprints for it. Maybe design some pirate fighters to go with it?

a re-purposed derelict? That is freaking awesome. I would think that if it was bigger, then this concept is only half to 2/3rd's the original size. I would think that it'd either make a very large Battleship or a small Capital... seeing as how it is something from ancient times and it's somewhat unknown as to what earth used to have.... the universe of idea's is overwhelming. For all we know Earth's BS's could've had the capabilities of New Edens current Capitols. O.o

Great concept!!!

repurposed derelict, so it might have belonged to one of the 4 known ancient races :)

I have this creeping suspicion that this was totally inspired by the Collector ship from Mass Effect 2...

if so... YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHH

otherwise, it looks like a srsbsnss BAMF

Great ship, it's fantastic.
I only have one suggestion: if the ship is broken, and that's why it has that appearence, it shouldn't be symetrical :)
