Actually, there was at least one other Daedalus-related concept thread in this forum. It was called "Colere", and I think I started it a couple of years ago. Essentially, it was a kind of modular transport starship that would carry a quasi-independent "mission pod" to a remote destination, jettison the pod, and the pod would serve as either a space-station-module/colony or some kind of supply pod for same. The ship would return to base to pick up another pod, and continue the next delivery cycle.
I don't know why, but I can't find it now. It was about summer of 2007 that I posted, if memory serves. Now the Colere thread seems to have disappeared.
