Joel Jurion is a French artist on DeviantArt. His gallery is excellent. Among his amazing artwork appears a thread of a story that I've attempted to piece together in a somewhat coherent sequence. Some of the art is labelled Heroic Space Opera. We can see bits of How to Train Your Dragon, some DragonRiders of Pern, and I believe a little bit of Nausicaa in this concept. Hopefully, someday this will develop into a truly epic space opera.
