Alright, here it is, my first posted moc, evar...

The artillery cruiser Leverage.

Special thanks go to Nannan for the gorgeous photos, letting me borrow a few pieces, and for a little inspiration on the side.

And now, the back story:

The Nubian Design Collective has been in the shipwrights business for centuries, and is well known both for it's revolutionary starship designs and it's high performance engine and hyperdrive parts. The H-770-D Fulcrum-class Deep Space Artillery cruiser is no exception in either category, built primarily around it's huge Gauss unit and the equally deadly plasma cannon below it, and constructed with the best parts NDC had to offer. This particular unit, the Leverage, eventually made it's way into the hands of one Captain Arca Katanga, one of the ranking officers in the Sulon Orbital Defense Command's small fleet. The Leverage loyally guarded the small Sullustian moon for a dozen years, undergoing numerous repairs and upgrades, including a significant increase in the gauss magazine capacity and a restructuring of the volatile plasma containment reactor. Katanga and most of his crew defected to the Rebel Alliance around 0 BBY, when the Dark Jedi Jerec was instated as the moon's governor, and Katanga's long-time friend Morgan Katarn was beheaded by the dark acolyte. The Leverage served in many successful hit-and-fade attacks on Imperial targets, before a well-placed torpedo breached the forward plasma recycler and took the ship out of commission for good.

Not my first moc...just the first one I've ever posted. And, for those of you who didn't know, Nannan and I are both students at WashU in St. Louis.

Very cool; you've got a lot of stuff happening, but it all pulls together quite well. I particularly like the line of minifig hands.

I look forward to seeing more of you models in the future!
