Those Breen's make pretty cool ships
But it actually looks as if it was put together with junk parts

Grown Cujo.. grown.... We've known Breen ships to be Biologically-based since Scorpion I. My guess it that she's run into some trouble in the past and the ship is busily regenerating itself on the ends of the nacelles and tail of the main hull.

And it doesn't look like an Onion. Suck it, Vorlon .

BTW, I guess we can assume Boussch's ship looked like this

Nice, doesn't look all that biological though.

Why would it necessarily be grown? And perhaps only the inside of the ship is organic/biological or whatever.

Cujo: Good Point. But I won't have you going around calling it a hunk of junk...

I had forgotten about the biological aspect of breen ships, did the PTB remember?

THAT ship does not look bio-organic at ALL... It's far too bulky to be organic, and I think I se hull plates, etc, not skin on the hull. I'd gladly take a Vorlon GARLIC ship over that any day. (Suck it, Tom). =P

the bussard collectors look like lemon lime icy-poles

also, didn't they give the Ferengi Warp drive - I would have assumed some similarity between the Ferengi ships and the Breen ships, but of course not!

Also, why couldn't we see some Ferengi D'Kora class ships in the last episodes? huh?

*sigh*

'nother thought - are these breen ships going to suffer the same murky appearance as other CGI based ships? i.e. those ships that have never originated from a physical model - those look the most fake - case point Annorax's time ship...

where as CGI ships that have already been physical models, look fabulous in CGI case point - the Nebula class Honshu

Andrew: I haven't found that to be a problem. The Akira is certainly beautiful (though that may be because of its Motion Picture birth).

Actually, it is quite likely that the ship was not designed to look organic, as the Encyclopedia is generally the only reference TPTB use when designing ships. Thanks to its publication date, it has nothing about Breen bioships. However, in Scorpion, everyone did seem pretty impressed with the 8472 bioship, so while Tuvok pointed out that the Breen had something similar, the biological intricacy of Breen ships is probably quite basic in comparison.

Well, while Tom and Adam are sucking each other... *ducks to avoid being smitten on two fronts*

Anyway, my guess is that the ships are either biological w/ a regularly-built "exoskeleton", if you will, or maybe they have a biological computer system, but everything else is artificial (like a highly advanced form of Voyager's neuro-gel packs).

BTW, what do you suppose those things are w/ the big rectangular holes in the front? Shuttlebays, maybe? Some sort of really huge torp launchers? (*doubts it, though*)

BTW, the interior doesn't look much like the interior of the 8472-mobile...

*crawls back up those several decks*

*antiVorlonspeak* Impotent!

Anyway, since the inside doesn't look organic, I'm gonna have to go w/ the computer's being a giant brain and nervous system that they grow, and then build a ship around. Or vice versa...

Also from STI. This gives a better idea of what the ship looks like.
