Is it just me, or is that a Sovereign/Eclipse-Class star destroyer in the background?

Sure looks like it to me. I tried setting the picture as my background, but it was out of proportion and was even harder to tell. Maybe someone with a good image editor could check it out?

Or, maybe you can tell from what that picture alone gives you.


This is the picture I got when I trimmed and zoomed, then reduced some graininess. Sure looks like one of them to me... sorry about the white dots- Adobe PhotoDeluxe decided to throw them in for some reason.

It most assuredly is. RS3 is shaping up to be a fantabulous game.

That's definately the Eclipse, without a doubt, I just checked my old Dark Empire Source Book for verification, and it matches the silhoette, almost perfectly. The bridge section in back is a little off, but that is definately the same ship.

The detail made me think it might be a bulk cruiser at first - some of them have a similar silhouette - but it does definitely look like a sovereign.

The Sovreign class has a different style front end. It's definately an Eclipse class SSD.

Been watching a bit too much of the newer Star Trek movies, have we?

That's ok, I've been watching ]Nemesis so much everyone seems like a younger clone to me...

I think it looks more like a soverign to me...

The Sovereign-class Star Destroyer has more or less the same hull. It's just a little smaller. I believe only two were ever produced and one remains un-fitted around Fondor to this day. The other was destroyed? Probably. Nobody's using them, anyway.

If you look at page 91 of WEGs Dark Empire Source Book , it has Silhoettes of the Capital ships, including the Eclipse class, and Sovereign class SSDs. The profiles are completely different., especially in the front end. The ship in the picture definately has the front end of the Eclipse
