Normandy Infographic WIP by nico89-fx Normandy Infographic WIP by nico89-fx
Well, I am trying to convey as much info as possible in this one without it getting all crowded and 'mass-effect-less' on its look, so bear with me on this one. It's just a WIP, so it'd be awesome to get some feedback, especially on the data and such, most of which I've double checked.
The SSV Normandy, if you don't know it already is your ship in Mass Effect 3.

Caught my eye the minute it was unveiled, both times. Especially this one, still remember the music gaining strenght and Joker saying "they only told me last night", gives me chills :)

Yeah It was the same for me. I still get that feeling every time I see her. She is one of my favorite ships.

Ignore these fools. Shepard actually is a Lieutenant Commander. He was never promoted through-out the trilogy.

You wouldn't happen to have its size width and height, would you?

The ones in place on the infographic are estimates I have taken, but are by no means accurate, as there are no official measures for the Ship. You only know it's about right because of its being a large enough frigate that cannot land on any planet.

I think those are the fusion torches, not the antimatter drives.
Antimatter engines are used sparingly, due to the damage caused by exhaust in the millions of degrees.
The big blue engines are used all the time.

[link] Check "Propulsion and power": The Normandy's main propulsion is provided by four large antiproton thrusters with both aft and forward exhausts. Yes, they are damaging, but not to the SR2 itself, but to any ship unlucky enough to try and stay behind it. There's even a picture of it.

And that's a fan-operated wiki. I'm basing this on the codex, canonical reference material by Bioware.

So you are saying that the Normandy SR2, the most advanced vessel in the galaxy save for the reapers uses "commercial fusion torch" (as described in the Codex) as its motive power? It sounds weird to me

AgentTasmania Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012
I recall reading what I'm basing this off in the ME1 codex, if that helps you track it down.
Fusion torches are standard on most types of ships and warships have antimatter thrusters as supplements for hard acceleration in combat.

Except the engines marked are used in atmosphere, pointing right at city buildings in Nos Astra for example. The antiproton thrusters would destroy half the city.

This is great. Any chance you'll do an SR1 version?

I've never actually modelled the SR1 (did like 4-5 SR2s tough, until I finally liked this one), but I'm planning on doing so in the near future. It might take a while tough, it's got loads of moving parts.

I like this and the Cerberus SR2 infographics and just thought it would be cool to have the complete history of the Normandy

One tiny prblem. Shepard is a full commander, not Lieutenant (Lt.) Commander.

I've been told, it was a copy/paste kind of mistake. It'll be among the final version's fixes. Thanks for the tip anyway! =)

PS: Is Liara really named first officer on the SR-2 during ME3? Or is this just an assumption?
Reply
:iconnico89-fx:
nico89-fx Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, no, she's not. But since she took Miranda's office and she answered to (or worked alongside) Hackett, I only assumed it.
My only other option was Garrus, seeing as the Virmire survivor doesn't cut it for me, and I would have had to choose one of them that way.

:icongodzillagspb:
GODzillaGSPB Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Mhm...speaking of the Virmire survivor though, I think he or she would make for a better first officer, especially since they have an official rank in the Alliance navy.

But it's only a suggestion. ;)

nico89-fx Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know, but then I'd either have to pick one or make two entirely different images just to please everyone, and then someone will complain that they didn't let the virmire survivor aboard the Normandy again.. You get the idea =)
Might change a few things up or remove the entry altogether for the final version, though.

GODzillaGSPB Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Yep, since there has never been an official command structure apart from Shepard being the boss :D ...it's probably best to simply leave it out. ^^
