Re: If You Could Re-Imagine the Phoenix?
I really like this approach. It's unconventional enough to be interesting, but the dual-ring pod setup is nicely evocative of the later style nacelles.
The one thing I wasn't sure of is this: do you propose mating this craft to a larger ring, or just be warp-capable as is?
Nonononono... I meant the whole ship would look like one of those pods with the rings around them.
The main hull would look like a mix of the manned orbiting laboratory and the pod (the thing that mounts the propeller and the duct around it)
Oh. Wow, what planet was I on? Sorry. Well, I still like that then.
We seem to still be more or less on the same page for everything else, if not on the same line.
