The Ice Mantis, LukeClarenceVan's newest starship. It is a Rendili StarDrive prototype with an advanced shield lattice energy dissipater covering the hull. Armed with two short-range laser cannons and two powerful long-range ion cannons the Ice Mantis is not suitable for long confrontations and flees if threatened. Its sub light engines are sluggish but hyper-space is an incredibly speedy class 1. This may not seem like much, but hyper drives were a lot slower 2000 BBY. The ship is best for long voyages with its large interior and LukeClarenceVan often uses it on diplomatic missions.
About this creation
An overhead view of the Mantis
The five engines
The entry hatch’s mechanism, also view the smooth shield lattice
You can see the shield lattice here as well as the ion cannon mounted on the side
The hatch opens…
…And reveals LukeClarenceVan!
He levitates on a compact repulsorlift that allows the crew to exit and enter the hatch, as it is difficult to jump ten feet onto the roof. The unconventional placement of the hatch also deters thieves.
The repulsorlift can adjust its height to the terrain
The interior of the ship
LukeClarenceVan at the helm
The compact repulsorlift is stored here, Tavaria watches life support and other non-combat systems, and V6 K0 observes the long-range sensors and comm system.
The galley, also includes a storage container at the edge by the window
The table with ultra-modern lamp
The engine room
A side view of the engine, also shows the tool bench
The sink, stove/grill, plates behind force-field, glasses and more plates
A better view of V6 K0 manning the sensors and comm, notice the high tech holo-comm
The armory, complete with grenades, shatter-rifle, sniper rifle, Tavaria’s heavy blaster rifle, vibro-axe, vibro-blades, needle-beamer, ion blaster, blaster pistol, electro-binoculars, and LukeClarenceVan’s disguise kit. (No one would ever recognize him with a wig).
Close-up of the engine
The force-field lowers to allow access to plates
LukeClarenceVan stows his lightsabers in a food storage drawer, no officials would search there!
He stores a krayt dragon tooth and a durindfire gem in the other drawer
The bed folds down

Overhead view of the cooking appliance
V6 K0 fries something up, what it is, no one knows.
LukeClarenceVan and Tavaria wait for their meal, notice their hover-chairs
And for those of you who read this MOC to the end, I reward you with this rare shot of LukeClarenceVan in his disguise kit
very interesting character development! i like your structured organisation, your ship is very reminiscent of the LIU corp, white and blocky, but, with beautiful and realistic interiors, are you sure you did nt steal their blueprints...? lol!
