Kirkland Krakka aka - Mad Kirk and his Incom G19 Hound Class Fighter:

Kirkland Krakka is a brutal, violent and totally insane Trandoshan Bounty Hunter operating out of the Al Passa VIII Mining system. His reputation for being bloodthirsty and the trail of destruction he frequently leaves have led to his services only being called upon as a last resort or to take on jobs other Bounty Hunters are unwilling to tackle. The Local Garrison Commander on Al Passa witnessed "Mad Kirk"'s antics first hand when the Planetry Council hired Kirk to rescue a party of officials captured by pirates. Kirk successfully tracked and massacred the pirates, however, in the carnage blasted 3 of the officials to oblivion and the only survivor was eaten by Kirk when his ship experienced technical problems and he got hungry awaiting his own rescue. The furious Council initially placed a bounty on Kirk's own head but after loosing countless men trying to bring him in they decided it was wiser to use him to their advantage and now use him whenever missions require reckless bravery or mindless violence. On several occassions Kirk has completed missions only to fail on collecting his bounty because nothing could be salvaged from the wreckage or scraped from the walls to proove his success but he doesn't seem to mind too much. He does have moments of brilliance however, one such example was on the moon of Trion where there were 14 wanted mercenaries holed up with a healthy dead or alive bounty on each mans head. The problem was that his G19 only had cabin space for 2 prisoners/passengers so his solution was to rip out the cabin and cargo section entirely and replace with a crude cage structure. This way the resoureceful Kirk managed to cram all 14 of the dead and dying men into his craft and was able to deposit their remains in a bloody pile on his employers doorstep!

Mad Kirk's ship is a Incom G19 Hound Class fighter/scout vessel. It has been heavily modified from a standard scout ship to a design that reflects Kirk's brutal personality. The light canons on the factory vessel have been removed and placed with a move devastating arsenal of 4 linked Taim and Bak KX9 Laser Canons. The biggest modification is that the bog standard engine has been ripped out and replaced by a far more powerful Incom GBK-585 fusiel thrust sub light engine - an engine that is far too big really for a ship of this size, resulting in frequent overheats or powercuts. Kirk himself is armed with a prototype BlasTech "Devastator" heavy blaster rifle.

Very good entry Dan, I love the very detailed description/backstory and the vehicle itself looks like a great fit for a Transdoshan bounty hunter (reminds me of the Transdoshan hovercrafts shown in the CW series). Very well done and good luck! :thumbup:

Thanks Kieldaman. Funny you should say it reminds you of the CW hovercraft as that was what my original plan was to build but it gradually morphed into being a ship!

Lovely ship with a ring of space police in it.
At the least you deserve an honourable mention for the background story. :thumbup:
