Whitestar Fighter by Amras-Arfeiniel Whitestar Fighter by Amras-Arfeiniel
"The Prototype Hybrid Fighters were a small batch of fighter sized prototypes, built in mid-2259. They were secretly developed by the Minbari Religious Caste under the supervision of Ulkesh and were used to test the hybrid Vorlon technology that was being developed for the new White Star class warships.

The hybrid fighters were single-pilot ships, similar to Earthforce's Starfuries but much more powerful and maneuverable, able to match the capabilities of even a Shadow Fighter.

Though only slightly larger than a Shadow Fighter, the Hybrid fighters are similar in configuration to the White Stars and the later Snub-nose Whitestar, featuring a central cockpit flanked by port and starboard mounted engine nacelles. Also like a White Star, the fighters feature a Vorlon organic auto-repair system. The fighters' cockpits were pressurised and equipped with full life-support systems, however, Entil'Zha Sinclair decided that like in Earthforce, pilots should wear full pressure suits as a backup precaution.

Only three examples are known to have been built, all of which were deployed under the command of Entil'Zha Sinclair on a mission to Sector 14.
(-To Dream in the City of Sorrows)"

JMS wrote in the introduction:
"To Dream in the City of Sorrows is not simply a licensed book set in the BABYLON 5 universe."
"While most of the Dell books to date have contained some elements that are considered canon, this is the very first one that is considered canonical in every small detail."
"What you hold in your hand is an official, authorized chapter in the BABYLON 5 story line."
"This is the definitive answer to the Sinclair question, and should be considered as authentic as any episode in the regular series."
– J. Michael Straczynski Executive Producer/Creator BABYLON 5
19 February 1997




I made this model for the B5 tribute contest on Foundation3D
There are a few other very nice models in this contest:
