^^When I first saw that SotL calendar image back at Shore Leave, my first thought was that maybe it could be the Aventine. But then I got a closer look at it and saw that it's maybe only a few times the size of a runabout.

I just noticed... how come that ship has a tailfin?
Me too. I was a little bit disappointed when I realised it scale was wrong, but it's stuck in my head as the basis for how I see the Aventine.
That's really funny. I had the same thoughts--that the ship's basic configuration was a good direction for the Aventine.
It could be that it's a proof-of-concept model; a smaller-scale version of the full ship for testing purposes like the Constitution mock-up seen in the picture for December.
