^It has been explained that the nose is part of the FTL drive system used to compress space ahead of the ship while another globe at the rear expands space behind the ship.
I must have missed that part, thanks.

Now I definitely think the ship is akin to one big warp nacelle. Incidentally, I think that if/when we do build interstellar vessels, they are much more likely to look like this than use a pair of external drive units.

Some recent discussion about the pod bays got me thinking, which in turn got me painting in Photoshop:



I drew that up in about 2-1/2 hours. Now that I've made the leap from line drawings to painted illustrations, I'm gonna have start working on color.

Would those happen to be Von Braun-ish bottlesuits lurking just inside the airlock?

Interesting pods. The design begs the question, if they are going to have mechanical hands, why be manned at all?

Asimov suggested an answer to that question.

I like it, though I may be biased.

Re: Star Ship Polaris

It's about time those four booster engines became something other than placeholders. Here's about a day's worth of work on the Cintiq tablet, not quite finished but far enough along that I can proceed with adding it to the 3D model.
