Ornithopter Class Starflyer

Rare marbles adorned the walls and floor of the small hanger bay.  The bay doors were guarded by golden panthers, and between them sat the starflyer Uzra.  

"Pardith, make sure no one follows us through those doors.  Ezra, take CeeBee and make sure we can fly that thing." The blue skinned girl and the rolling trashcan headed for the hatch, while the hulking Weren kept watch, his massive flintlock pistols at the ready.

Kanar headed over to the hanger bay contols, and began to override the bay doors.  His concentration was knocked away when a pair of gunpowder explosions blasted out in rapid succession.  

"We've got company!"  The Baron Bharaputra's black clad guards were in the corridor, their las-blasters humming.  

Kanar drew his fletchet pistol and shot off a couple of rounds before entering the final commands into the panel.  "Into the ship!" He ordered Pardith as he sprinted to the hatch.

Barely larger than your average starfighter, this unique shuttle manages to cram in a surprisingly large amount of luxury.  It's interior was crafted with the finest materials at the direction of Baron Bharaputra, who while being a thoroughly despicable person, has the finest taste.  It manages to come right up to the edge of being garishly opulent, yet still remaining an elegant means of transportation.

It's severely limited cargo capacity and personal accommodations would make any extended trips a rather uncomfortable experience in spite of the luxury.  It also relies on speed, maneuverability, and deflectors to protect it from harm, as it has sacrificed any armament in favor of it's FTL drive and various luxuries.


  1. oooh nice, is this papercraft? If so where can I get one?

  2. It's a 3D render, and I've edited the post to show the place I snagged it from. It would be a cool papercraft project though.
