This is looking terrific - I'm really hoping it won't lose its sleek purposefulness being freckled with portals and escape pods.
I've become increasingly concerned about that myself. The Citizen and I are just beginning to hash out surface details, windows, panel lines, escape pods, etc, but I would like to find a way to reduce the usual "clutter" and maintain more of TMP-era sleekness.
Well, there's nothing that says that "escape pods must be under yellow hatches," is there? In fact, there's very little COMPELLING reason to have them in any location which is visible from outside of the ship.
To that end you could just outline the pod doors with white and red striped lines like is done on modern aircraft and ships. Just an idea.
