got tired of drawing small ships. no sense of grandness involved with those. this one's based off the old circa 1912 Imperial England dreadnoughts that formed the spine of their navy.

The Bastion class Battleship is one of the most feared capital starships ever created. Although nearing a decade of service, this exceptionally well designed battleship still serves in the NTG Navy as a frontline vessel after several small refits. Primarily designed for ship to ship combat, the Bastion is also capable of planetary bombardment with its 14 Titan cannons.
The battleship is also capable of boarding action. 4 Grappling Cutter utilities on each side of the ship can latch on to a target vessel, bringing it alongside so the cutting lasers can drill a hole through the armor, allowing the marines to board via 4 extendable armored airlocks.
Weapons and Marines aside, the survivability of this ship is the primary reason why it is still in service. The ship was termed near invincible when it was first introduced. Thick Titanium/Neutronium armor surround the entire superstructure, while the interior of the ship is a mass of honeycombed titanium beams, leaving no useless empty spaces. The hull is further strengthened by self sealing foam canisters that fire off extremely dense and hard foam into unoccupied sectors of the ship in case there is a hull breach.
With no real weaknesses, the Bastion will probably remain in service until an extremely advanced frontline ship is introduced.
