Battlefleets of Sector Six: the Ophelian Imperium
Stuck way out far far from any Imperial focal point, the ships detailed to the defense of Sector Six are the leftovers. Almost every corner of the Imperium has priority over this backwater of backwaters. Thus the ships here are assigned by happenstance, not plan. No thought of compatibility or operational efficiency, just expediency.
The livery of the Sector Six Fleet follows Imperial protocol using color combinations on navigational panels. Central Sectors have single colors (Red, Blue...etc), and as Sectors are further toward the frontier, combinations of multiple colors are used. Sector Six has been assigned a Yellow/Orange safety checkerboard.
Lastly, while the Ophelian Imperium names their main Capital ships as "Cruisers", this study will employ the "Jane's" standard, and classify them as Battleships, and additionally apply this across all classes.
Imperial naval architecture employs a modular methodology, and capital ships are made up of bays that can accept heavy guns, torpedo launchers, or fighter bays etc.
The "Devastator", configured as a Carrier
To the left are the ponderous, but heavily armed "Ursa" class, and the swift "Spectre" class on the right.
This class (and Fighters) are the backbone of the Sector Fleet. Provided in both quality (fast and well armed) and quantity, Imperial Destroyers at their best are swarming vicious attackers.
The "Parvus Pistris"
As with the Destroyers, what is available is good in quality and with substantial numbers.

Most of the Sector's Heavy Units passing the Rentlaw hyper-limit
Battleships are again the excellent "Dark Edge Games" models. The Ursa Class Cruisers are old etsy models, and I do not recall the store. Light Cruisers are GW "Thunderbolt" models from their Space Fleet range. Destroyers are from a comapny called "Vanguard".
Fighters are 3D printed at home from a Thingiverse stl.
As usual, comments and criticism are welcome. Let me know if I can answer any questions.
Thanks for looking,
