The Baron's Hangar by DanBrownCGI The Baron's Hangar by DanBrownCGI
The average visitor to the Aster Space Port and Hangar Facility on Koranna IV might never realize that it houses the private hangar of the famed star fighter pilot, nicknamed the Baron.

If one were to explore the sprawling complex of squat, round hangars and landing bays, semi-submerged in the sandy ground all around, they might chance upon an unassuming structure toward the south, where three ancient D-1 Space Superiority Fighters sit, relatively unattended. The three craft were all owned by the Baron, and were used by him and his flight team during their incredible combat missions against the Trisst Empire some fifty years ago.

Now, they are museum pieces, preserved by the Thrassi War Heroes Conservation Association, for future generations to appreciate.

The Baron who flew these fighters, whose real name was never released to the public, was reportedly killed by falling from a ladder in his home just three days after the war ended.

Really great work, Dan. Reminds me of the cover art from 70's sci-fi novels.

Thanks! I grew up reading those old novels, so that's probably where a lot of the look came from, actually. :)

at first sight I thought it had to do with the Harkonnen's Baron from Dune

Absolutely Awesome!   As a fan of 50's/60's USAF aircraft these really catch my attention.  Wonderful write-up too.

Looks great. I like the backstory to go with it, and the scenery visible outside the hangar.
