An Avalon class battlecruiser named Sekhmet after an ancient Egyptian solar deity, daughter of the sun god Ra.
She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare.
In a myth about the end of Ra's rule on the earth, Ra sends Hathor as Sekhmet to destroy mortals who conspired against him. In the myth, Sekhmet's blood-lust was not quelled at the end of battle and led to her destroying almost all of humanity, so Ra poured out beer dyed with red ochre or hematite so that it resembled blood. Mistaking the beer for blood, she became so drunk that she gave up the slaughter and returned peacefully to Ra
Sekhmet -A Lion headed Goddess of Egypt, she represented the destructive qualities of the suns rays causing drought and famine
So a sun deity and a warrior goddess amongst other things, with the destruction ability to create drought with sun rays sound about right for a ship with a huge frickin´ laser...
I painted the heat sink on the Viper super heavy laser as metal that have had colour shifting due to heat.
The "Eye of Ra" is represented by the "Viper Super-Heavy Laser", with this weapon all enemies will be burnt to cinder.
"...The Eye is an extension of Ra's power..."
