My review:

This sleek shipset is really stunning. It has a curved hulls and careful coloured shading which I particularly like. The trasparent glowing areas work well on this fleet, and the is a good level of detail throughout.

I like the way TauCeti has combined smooth hulls with mechanical and beefy cannons.

This fleet supports many NeoStandard vessels, including some very detailed larger/massive versions of the vessels.

Production Notes:

Word from the author:
The hulls were created in Organica. I used Imagine to slice lines out of the hulls (you can see the blue inner hull through the lines) and add texture. Each ship was rendered twice, once for the hull, and a second time for the blue glow. These images were combined in Corel Photopaint. The phased ships were rendered a third time for the phasing.

This shipset was originally designed for Starscape. I changed the names of many of the ships to more closely match neostandard. The phased ships were originally a unique type of ship with a lower effective mass to component mass ratio.

Nice.... Like the set. It has a good futuristic look to it.

Excellent... a race of blue. I had been planning something like this, but kudos to you who designed it. Also, the name sounds cool and futuristic, too. Like some sort of future evolutionary step for humanity or something. Nice job!

Look at the troops, my favorite part of the shipset. They're like the Tripods from "War of the Worlds". I think that the solar panels on the satellites suggest a more advanced human society whose technologies have advanced in some areas but not in others. Interesting overall effect.

Kevin, if you copy AI files from another race and rename them to match the Etherian prefix then you should be able to play against this race.

I see... pacifists. Afraid to use their weapons. Futuristic, sure, but Phong-volnurable. And I know how bad the Phong, no matter how kickass their ships are, suck AI-wise.
