Stars in Shadow: Human Ship Design Thumbnails by AriochIV Stars in Shadow: Human Ship Design Thumbnails by AriochIV
Concepts from Stars in Shadow, a space 4X strategy game currently under development.

Like the Ashdar and Gremak, Human starfaring culture predates the ancient disaster that caused the collapse of galactic civilization. Unlike the other elder races, however, Humanity's remnants are completely displaced, without a home to call their own. They are found as refugees scraping out an existence on remote worlds, or limping from port to port in their ancient, barely functioning colony ships, trading or offering their services as mercenaries. Theft and piracy seem to come naturally to them, and they are tenacious close-quarters fighters.

You can see finished ship graphics here.

It amuses me just how cluttered and "cobbled together" the human ships look compared to the other species. Of course, i imagine that is the whole point...

I am really taking to the fighters. I get a Freespace vibe from them. :)

Those ships at the bottom are heavily reminiscent of the hovercraft from The Matrix.

Oh so you've made the humans the Turanics in this? :P

I couldn't resist pointing out the similarity. 

Though those ships are working a nice chunky mercenary "cobbled together" vibe that fits the Turanics pretty well too. Solid, blocky. Tough to get rid of.
