    Thanks guys. The cover looks fantastic, but it looks more like Admiral Ross's starbase rather than construction habitat. I supposed they could have quickly towed those pieces into position, and are building the the top from the prefabricated materials. Either way, I've been meanign to get back into Trek books, I might pick this up

    ^ EmperorTiberius, it's already been pointed out that the image on the cover of that book is not what it looks like:

    That image is not the real new DS9, just the construction habitat for the workers who will build it.

    Bad Robot's Kelvin and Enterprise non warp and warp capable shuttles.

    TMP's Surak and V's shuttles.

    I still can't believe that anyone is going for something other than a runabout.

    Why not? Get a runabout, and you can use it for all the same things as your little shuttle, and you can also spend a week on Mars if you so desire.

    Besides, why wouldn't you want to spend your time in something that has a replicator and the sum total of human knowledge. And hey, chick magnet too.

    I'm still sticking with the Argo. Basically a runabout with a garage. Do you suppose that a Romulan Scorpion would fit in the garage?

    Just when I think I know a lot about Star Trek, you guys prove me wrong. Hehe. I'd say, Delta Flyer. Seems comfy, pretty. Bathrooms and sleep possibilities is what I need. ;)

    I could do without the "retro" design Tom Paris added though, with all the buttons..

    Not the Type 9 sweat box: "They used to shoehorn half a dozen cadets into one of these things for weeks at a time. You did not want to be around when they opened up that airlock." Though Janeway's Endgame one was a pimp-my-shuttle.

    I'd vote for Alice. :p
