I changed my mind, and the thing from the previous post is now the torpedo launcher (I moved the accelerator coils further into the barrel):

Working on the Xortek cruiser, "Ifrit". It is armed with a number of plasma mortars (nee plasma capsule cannons) and a big plasma beam cannon. It's almost done, just need a little bit of detail in the rear. The ship is 275 m, top to bottom. https://i.imgur.com/v9j1WrZ.png https://i.imgur.com/1Sn0lKy...
Two ammo types, plasma torpedo and plasma capsule (torpedo being the larger/powerful variant). Both are magnetic cages encasing a blob of plasma. The little red lenses are sensors

Interesting point about the 'corvette' designation. I was thinking more of Homeworld corvettes which are not particularly large (just fatter) compared to fighters in that game, but I see in Transcendence a corvette is something like the Minotaur which is 4x as large as this ship... I'll adjust it.
I've set out on a little project to add some ships/stations to Transcendence, under the umbrella of 'Xortek Corporation'. Thematically, the corporation and its ships focuses on heat management: there'll be lots of radiators, plasma based weaponry etc. I plan for the stations to sell custom weapons a...
