Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit
I had once thought about making a post-TNG-era intergalactic explorer vessel based on a group of saucers, all attached around a central stardrive hull. Each saucer could be jettisoned, to serve either as a planetfall colony or as a core for a space station. I called the concept the GS Universe.
Depending on how these colony-saucers are expected to function, the saucer-mounted hangar of Vance's Masao-class (uprated/TMP) might add functionality to each of them.
