Re: Shuttlecraft - curved edges on top?

Good point. But building an elevator cabin that differs from the standard shuttle by omitting all power plants, engines and their fuel is still an attractive idea... Or, if one isn't stingy with tractor power use, one could tractor the shuttles down and back up as a default, and only use their onboard engines in emergencies. Who knows, it might even save an ounce or two of antimatter overall.
