    All really cool. If the Cutter had the pod raised, it would be a good predecessor to the Nebula class.

    I deliberately didn't want to ape the Miranda/Nebula look with that one, so I used the "pod" part as an extended impulse engine deck. It's still too close to that family for my liking, but I do what I can with the parts to hand. :)

    It's amazing how easy it was to change the scale of the thing just by taking off the bridge dome making the Deck 2-3 "bulge" the Bridge and only 1 deck high.

    ^ It's supposed to be a sensor dome, according to most blueprints.

    True...the description of the part on Vance's site is that of a "reconnaisance saucer" or some such...it's a mini-dish with an engine either way.

    The beauty of parts is that they can be whatever you need them to be with a little work. :)

    Thanks for the complement!

    Don't know the Monocerous class off hand. I do know that the 218s are tiny little things. Crew of 2-4 plus 6 passengers, and with maybe a 2-3 week endurance at best. Two low-power, single-mount phaser banks (1 dorsal, 1 ventral, both in the forward arc). Mostly used for in-system police and customs inspection work.

    Here's two more (I'm on a roll):

    I was thinking of the so-called "liberty ships" when I designed her...very basic construction, cheap and quick to build. The type of ship that the Federation could turn out in bulk if needed in a wartime situation, then sell off remaining units afterwards to the private sector at a fairly low price.

    So you might see a lot of those filling the "tramp freighter" role in peacetime, and whole convoys of them in wartime.
