Great artwork and animation. However, this reminds me of seeing an AT-4 being fired for the first time at boot camp. The damn warhead didn't detonate, what a let down right? The intensity of the beam wasn't quite caught in terms of sound effects (yes, I know space is a vacuum), it builds up and fizzles. Give that beam some bass, shake the screen a little, prove to us that your ship isn't fucking around. Otherwise great stuff!
The design of the ship is pretty cool, but other than that there wasn't much going on. It seems like it should have been clipped with another scene, just to establish some character or motive to make it a bit more interesting. The sound effects were pretty good, but overall it lacked story or anything to pull my interest.
