Nice translation so far, Bill...

I take it you were never any more taken by the "Enclopedia" design for the Valiant than I was, huh?

Obviously, this is an Albuqu... damn, I can never spell that guy's name!... well, a "Warp Ring" design, huh?

My only quibble so far is that I can't judge scale at all. I presume you're going to have something to indicate the scale of the ship (and not just the "little blue guy")?
Hi Cary. I just realized I never answered this. Yes, warp rings. Two sets of them. According to aridas' timeline, I think she's one of the first to have her own sustainable warp field (as opposed to having it generated by the launching facility).

As for scale, this is from aridas: "by my reckoning that makes this ship about 442.2 feet long, nose of the main ship to the end of the impulse rocket's nozzle."

There are windows, about half-way between the glowing ports up front and the inner warp ring. I just haven't added them yet.
