Re: S.S. Valiant Appearance
Hmm. Not hugely different from the revised idea I have in mind. I think the crew needs something larger though. If you don't have transporters and you might be going down to some surfaces for survey then you need to be able to bring your equipment and supplies with you because you can't conveniently beam stuff up and down.
