Isn't most of the neck on the Excalibur hangar space? I remember seeing fighters dropping from bays on the bottom of it. I think most of the crew areas are in the "fins" and the area where they intersect.

I love that ship, though. Very cool looking.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

the hanger area is under the main 'lip'... shuttles fly in and out along the base of the 'neck' area, where the protusion comes out from the center along the underneath of the main neck towards the front...

i'm guessing there isn't anything at the extreme front, aside from stupidly huge gun barrels lol... but i think the main 'neck' area is inhabited, as we saw shuttle cars and tubes travelling for miles in the show on a straight line...

Thanks, cooleddie! I love bright and upbeat. Plus "Hearts and Hooves Day" was a hilarious episode from start to finish.
