And this is, after all, my attempt at TOS deck plans.
And that's it in a nutshell and I salute you. I hold to the same approach when developing my TOS shuttlecraft plans.

You are trying to "complete" the ship and flesh her out as MJ and the TOS creators and writers might have envisioned her, trying to use their mindset and approach to design and planning.

For me this makes your work (as well as aridas' and CRA's) feel much more authentic than retconning all sorts of post TOS references into it.

It's why I called my shuttlecraft fuel supply the "antimatter bottle" rather than the "warp core." They may both be referring to the same thing, but the former is more specific while the latter is more a generalization. You may well need antimatter to have warp drive, but it isn't the antimatter in itself that creates the spacewarp field.
