Overall, this is a great piece.

What I like:
+The separate elements around, but not attached to, the central ship give the ship an "under construction" look.
+Along similar lines, I like the rough, ribbed surfaces. It's reminiscent of the newer Battlestar Galactica, without ripping it off directly.
+The blue glow, and more specifically, its streaking qualities, are very interesting.
+The background is an especially good choice. Planetary orbit makes sense for large ship construction, and the binary star system with two different-colored suns is a nice touch.

Suggestions for improvement:
-The ship and its assembly components is a bit too symmetrical for something under construction. The unattached components are aligned a little too perfectly, too. Rotating and moving these components around would give the image a bit more realism.
-Consider giving some visible clues as to what the significance of the blue glows is.
-Consider varying the material texture and coloring. Without the blue glow, this ship would look like it just rolled off a 3D printer. Real machines tend to have more visual variety. Some symbols/paint here and there would help, too.
-Consider giving some clues as the the functions of different components. Engines have cones, communications have dishes, sensors can have domes, weapons have pointy barrel appendages, and docking bays have doors.
-Consider showing some kind of indication of where the people live in this ship.

Can heardly believe that the warship is a raw MB. Very well done!
Only one point to criticise: The white small points are disturbing a bit. But I know how hard it is to get them off sometimes.
edit: My wife has a completely different opinion concerning the white points. She says that are stars, no noise. In most cases my wife is right.

I am sorry to say Jost your wife is once again correct, they are stars from the background.
I find it's best to agree with whatever our wives say, it makes for an easier life.
Thank you :)

It has come to bring peace and prosperity to the world.  By blowing everyone up. :D

Great job on this.  Its kind of amazing how great fractal can be for everything.  Actually it kind of makes me think of the replicators from the TV show "Stargate" This would be if they gained full intelligence and made their own ships.
