So... I'm not sure if the following would be good enough, but I decided to go with the old Yorktown concept from way back in the day and mix in some Syd Mead for good measure. The current scale (see the windows near the top of the central cone) might not be good enough for me. I had planned on throwing a shuttlebay at the cone's bottom but right now that space is not big enough. I'm afraid that I need to increase it to 2x to make it workable and I think at that point the whole ship really becomes too big. But yeah, we'll see... I like the bussard collectors (they're still that; Star Trek has no copyright on the concept's use because it's an actual theoretical decive) but I might need to play with them a bit more.
