    The level of 'alienness', to a great extent, is a function of the difference between levels of technology. An F-117 would seem very, very alien to someone accustomed to a Wright Flyer. Then there's an iPhone compared to a candle stick phone. Yet they both spring from the same species in just a couple of generations.

    In any case - two of my ship designs that were intended to be of human origin:

    you are right about f117 s and wright flyers. those human ships are not in the sort of style i would imagine, either from soft sci fi, hard sci fi or theoretical starship proposals so they look a bit unusual aswell. you've certainly designed more ships than i could before running out of ideas.

    It looks like a funky Frisbee.

    Added things.

    Reminds me a bit of that Matt Jefferies Enterprise concept ring ship, and the Asimov from B5.

    I've been switching over to a new computer, so I haven't got much done on this.

    the markings are quite a nice touch, otherwise i will reserve any judgment of the design as a whole until it is further done. does the structure spin? personally i could see this making a good part for a ship but on it's own it looks like a station, there is no apparent propulsion system, that said i can really see some features much like those form some earth force babylon5 ships. the little "bridge(?)" at 90 degrees to the other circles is a cool element.

    The big ring is the FTL drive coil - and maybe some fuel storage. Drives tend to be rather small in most sci-fi ships, so I sometimes like to make them outsized. It doesn't spin. The red gumball and the smaller rings surrounding it are the sublight drive and power station. The gumball is the reaction containment zone.
