design by Nick Bradbeer
Each deck is 2.5m high, including 50cm of solid deck, trunking and service space. The ship has a generally rounded form, with a pod-and-boom configuration, although most of the curves of the outer hull are actually made up of a large number of flat facets. Spaced around the pod, two above and one below, sit three fuel sponson tanks. While not strictly drop tanks, these may be isolated from the main fuel system and filled with excess cargo if required, or to provide a concealed cargo space.
Six fins also protrude from the rear section of the ship. Tapered in section, three large fins jut out between the sponsons, and three smaller ones protrude from the sponsons themselves. The belly fin is cut short, limited in length by the clearence of the landing gear. The sides of the six fins are covered in solar collectors, provididing minimum control and life support power when in the habitable zone of a star system and allowing the ship to run super-silent with the reactor actually shut down.
The whole ship is painted black with EMS absorbant surfacing, and the solar collectors have a dull black finish. Combined with the faceted surface, this gives the ship a strikingly sinister, almost insectoid appearance.
