Some of many designs prepared in 2012 for the sci-fi epic 'Jupiter Ascending' by The Wachowskis. I worked mainly on early explorations of Aegis cruiser (exterior and various interior parts) as well as on ZERO's hangar, assembly and deployment system.
Aegis concept, based on prehistoric fish. The idea was that thrusters were inside 'fins' and 'tails', so they would change the configuration during manoeuvres.

Some sketches for Aegis med-chamber. Originally, a couple of scenes were to take place in it. In the movie, it's reduced to a few seconds after Caine is rescued from the void. However, you can see injectors ideas being used in Balem's lab as part of his examination/torture devices.
ZERO assembly site (horizontal). Initially, ZERO's parts were to be arranged around the main part.
