Megalopolis City Station and Vortex Ship by TenebraesRising Megalopolis City Station and Vortex Ship by TenebraesRising
Presenting two of the largest Civilian spacecraft utilized by the Tenebrean empire and its Sub empires. The Vortex Class Debris Compactor Ship, and the Sprawling Megalopolis Class Orbital Station. Both with a length or diameter of 210 kilometers. the Vortex Ship being 221 kilometers in length.

Some line-art.

Both Vessels are utilized in Extensive colonization efforts of new systems by the Tenebrean government, the Vortex class Ships often being sent in before the Megalopolis Stations in order to Clear away debris and Asteroid fields or individual bodies of Rock or diamond that might serve as a potential risk to future colonies.

Retired vortex ships are often re-purposed as Salvage vessels by scavenger fleets that roam outer regions or sites of ancient wars fought in the void. their Powerful gravity wells often being re-purposed to pull in Derelict Craft and wreckage.
Among the most prominent Vortex ships is the ERVO, which was the only Surviving vessel of the Natza Kartania incident, and the VORTEX, which, along with several union craft. was present at the Discovery of a second dimensional crystal on the tenebrean Home world of Tenebris-888

Megalopolis Class City Stations, are among the Largest Civilian Orbital habitats used by the tenebrean empire. At over 210 kilometers in diameter and possessing onboard agricultural and food processing facilities, entertainment and trade centers, transit systems, and even Fully functional Shipyards. they can handle populations totaling in the tens of millions, and being totally self sufficient, can actively serve as semi-independent City states or as capitals for young colonies or systems as they develop. as they are often put in orbit with smaller city stations [link] around worlds in the process of being terraformed or colonized as a center of operations, or to house colonists until planet side settlements are ready for occupation.

among the most prominent Megalopolis class Stations currently in the Ancerious galaxy, is OBCASIO city, a frontier Capital/Transport hub that was the closest to the Natza Kartania incident and was the first to receive the doomed Facilities distress calls. its shipyards are currently servicing the ERVO via shuttle and long range work platforms in order to preform and cleanup and re-fit of the vessel.

Another few examples of this class of station that made themselves well known in Ancerious are the "Spartan five." Five Megalopolis class stations, heavily modified with spartan style Architecture and infrastructural systems, which were given to the spartan Empire as a sign of thanks for their aid of the People of the Exceion system in helping to rebuild following the Raid by the Immortal empire.

(a little more info will be given with the finalized image, but these two shown here are ment to be the ERVO and OBCASIO city, They'll be a subplot developing between the two of them and the obcasio system soon enough.)

Thanks man! it was about time i managed to get a visual of what these ships and locations looked like up! I'm glad you like them! :D Hopefully they'll come in handy later on.

After all, Obcasio does become Nagas city in effect! Once that's all established, it's all yours to use for your plot in all of this as you see fit!
