Re: Shuttlecraft - curved edges on top?
I've always really liked the TOS shuttlecraft, and anyone who's ever really studied it, drawn it and tried to make propr models (3D or physical) know it's far from being a simple shoebox. It has all sorts of subtle curves and odd shapes. The "full-size" (actually closer to 4/5) mock-up of the exterior is an awesome replica in its own right and despite some of its production shortcuts it's a far more interesting and complex design than any of the shuttle mock-ups TNG started out with.
