Re: Your favourite TrekLit ships?

^I'm sure your uncle's fishing boat isn't away from port for months at a time. If someone on that boat is seriously hurt, the contents of those large suitcases can be used to keep them stable until the boat can get into port and call an ambulance. We're talking about a spaceship that's travelling far, far beyond known space and can't rely on having a friendly port nearby. So yes, it would need fully equipped medical facilities.

Anyway, if you want to discuss the design of Cleopatra's Needle, there's a thread for it in Trek Art now.
