Apologies in advance if this has been discussed elsewhere but is there any info/speculation on the small, roundish ship that the crew uses on Kronos? Captain's yacht maybe? A newer shuttle? A loaner from starfleet? A klingon ship they acquired/commandeered/stole?
It's definately a human design, as the controls and displays are same style as we see on the Kelvin / Kobayashi Maru test bridge and older shuttles (like Pike flew to Narada). OR it may be laziness of the design department.
