What's an ortho, and what does it have to do with Star Trek Online? Or am I getting the wrong end of the stick here?
Orthos are short for orthographic diagrams or schematics, generally showing between 4 and 6 non-perspective-distorted views of a particular vessel giving a fairly comprehensive idea of its configuration. These usually include at least one side view (provided the ship is not asymmetrical), a front view, rear view, top and (sometimes) bottom views.
I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
