Asari Starfighter Concept 2 (Lucen class) by Euderion Asari Starfighter Concept 2 (Lucen class) by Euderion
Second attempt for an Starfighter or Shuttle for the Asari Race from Mass Effect. My first try is here: fav.me/d7pre9c

I
've wondered for a long time, how the asari fleet may look like.
All we see ingame is the Destiny Ascension Dreadnought and the Cruiser. So I have developed a concept for a fighter/shuttle of the asari Navy.

I oriented on the main body from the Ascension and the Cruiser with a E-Zero core in the center. This second version looks more like a whaleshark or Manta-Ray because i wanted an more organic style for the Asari.

Named after Lucen, one of two servants of the Asari goddess Athame who sailed to the stars and teached the Asari mortals the ability to spacetravel.


Build and rendered in 3d Max 10
Mass Effect is (c) by Bioware & EA

Tell me what you think about!

I like concept 2 over the first one. But, to mee, that is I expect their frigates would look like, not their fighters.
Remember the turians fighters were differnt from their crusisers, so I expect the asari would be differnt, like a bird of prey, a fulture to swood down and attack. Well, good job anyway.

Thanks for comment.
I wanted to create a recognition value for the asari. It should be apparent at first glance, with what kind of ship you have to do it.
I think i make a frigate version from my first concept.

My first thought when I saw this was "this Romulan Bird of Prey looks weird", but then I saw that this is supposed to be an Asari ship...
So, where are the weapons, and what weapons does this fighter have? Also, what's the purpose of that huge mouth? Does the ship double as an atmospheric fighter with SCRAM jet engine?
Finally, the colour scheme seems un-Asari. Proably a good idea for a space ship, but the Asari seem to like light colours, if the DA is any indication.

The weapons are on the front of the ship. The two spikey things there. It use near-ultraviolet frequency lasers with six times the range for anti-fighter purpose.
The huge mouth is the element zero core, the energy core in the Mass Effect universe. I use the hole in the same way we see the Destiny Ascension from the game.
Thus, there is a recognition value.
Why do you think the color scheme is wrong. I use the texture from the Destiny Ascension from ME3 to make the textures for the fighter. So it is the same.

I don't recall the DA being black. To me it always looked either white or light grey. Or maybe a very light blue.
As for the big hole in the front of the DA, that cannot possibly be the engine. Why would there be a hole? To collect interstellar hydrogen to power the engine? Airplanes have air intakes because they need the oxygen, but what could the DA, or this fighter, want to gather in the vacuum of space? Human and Turian ships don't have such openings either, and they fly just fine.
No, this opening must serve another purpose, and therefore I do not believe that a fighter-class craft would have one.

Nice touch-ups! While you kept the original idea and remained faithful to your original concept, I like how you rescaled the proportions, and replaced the capital ship windows with a much more realistic (energy?) grid. It looks similar to what we see in the comm room in ME3 on the Normandy, however I don't know if you imagined that electricity running around on it.

Thank you! I think this is a better version than my first concept. I have retexture the model, so the windows from the cruisers is now a tech thing. Dont know what exactly it is. An energy grid sound good.

Very cool - it does look like a manta ray too, not explicitly but the lines of it give the impression.  Fits well, the asari ships seem to look a bit aquatic.

Rather bulky vs the Alliance, Cerberus and Turian fighters - I imagine it would make a much more tempting target, and probably be less maneuverable. Which would make sense, since the Asari generally have far more arrogance than actual ability.

Less maneuverable? Why? The ships have a Mass Effect drive. It reduces the mass of an object so it can be more maneuverable and even travel faster than light.
The size i think is right for the Asari. All we see ingame is the cruiser as big as an dreadnought from the other races and the Destiny Ascension, a kind of her own. So i make the fighter bigger as well.

All true, but a bigger object is still going to turn slower than a smaller one, and be easier to hit. Plus, and this is a flaw in all Asari ship design, that big ole ramscoop is going to be a missile magnet.

As I said, it makes sense: the Asari are egotistical and elitist, but they're all talk. They relying on wheeling and dealing and intimidating because in a real fight they'd be flattened. A big, imposing-looking ship which has more bark than bite fits them perfectly.

For some reason, this design makes me think of a manta ray.

Yeah, i want an organic style for the fighter. And with the big hole mass drive, what fits better then the manta ray.

Some of the reasons are probably the curvy hull and the unique wings.

Now that looks hot! I like your designs for asari.

Most spaceship art just don't fit what I'd imagine for their design but you capture it well.
