Re: If You Could Re-Imagine the Phoenix?

I'm not sure I'd go with that exactly.

I'm thinking of using a design based more or less on the MOL (Manned Orbiting Laboratory) -- Picture Here: http://pagesperso-orange.fr/max.q/ap...utaway_big.jpg -- clean it up a little bit, taper it a tiny bit in the back, possibly add a little thickness in the middle and put a ring around that area, and connect it to the main hull with some pylons (at least one, no more than four).

The main part of the ship -- the part based on the MOL could be launched up into space with a couple of large rockets.
