This is from the second episode of a TV show I've been working on for a while now. Since I haven't animated anything in so long, I figured I might as well do it now.
The show takes places right after my book concludes. The main plot follows the engineer of a small cargo tug on a very strange journey, and the Alliance is simply a sub plot. Still, I love animating explosions.
The ship in the distance is the ANS Glorious, and the closer one is the ANS Brilliant. In TWBTW, the Glorious took a lot of damage and both ships are docked at the Excelsior repair station for (duh) repairs. When the Merczateers invade Alliance space they destroy Excelsior and a good deal of the ships docked there, but not without a fight. Captain Errol, of the Glorious, tells Sator that the Glorious is too damaged to make it out, and he will hold off the Merczateers as long as he can while she gets her ship, as well as the Admiral who was on board at the time, to safety.
