You can probable see the heavy influence of the DS9 Defiant Starship. This is not G1 Ark. It's my Generation Zero fan fiction Ark, see the differences like the shuttle bay, virtual holo-room, all the quarters on board. In my fan fic the Ark is built jointly by the Autobots and Decepticons during a truce. As a last hope before Cybertron run out of power and all the bots left behind go into stasis lock. Little does Optimus know Megatron builds another ship just for the cons and plans to destroy the Ark before the Autobots can begin the seach for energy. Fortunately Optimus learns of Megatrons plan and gets launched before it can be sabotaged, but the Nemesis is not far behind.
