Re: S.S. Valiant Appearance

While I have nothing against the concept of an "Earth ringship" with the ring actually being a warp engine (Warped 9's concept is really amazing), my take on the ringship concept is quite different. In my concept, the ship's warp engines are nacelle-based, directly related to Cochrane's Phoenix. The ring structure isn't an engine at all, but rather a framework to attach mission modules and engines to a multi-purpose spacecraft.
