Very credible. Would've loved to see these used alongside the TOS style shuttles onscreen!

Me too...although since I made it, not much surprise there, but glad you like it; somehow it just made sense.

Very nice, an ancestor to the Comet-class transport created by Conan Parsu!

Sweet design I could see these as part of Galactica's original compliment when she was commissioned.

Thanks, I've got a few things I'll likely tweek, but I think this works pretty well.

As for the story, time constraints forced me into a hiatus (three kids and a wife going back to school is hectic), but I am aiming to have the next chapter out around the end of the month (provided that what I write up in that time frame doesn't suck). Thanks for the inquiry, though, nice to know there's interest.

I envisioned it as carrying a platoon, approximately 36 to 40 troops and their equipment. I liken the role to the old landing craft at Normandy; she hits the ground, ramps drop and charge...

Looks like you added the engines from the ISSCV's from Space: Above and Beyond.

Nice. ;)

Winglets were taken from my ISSCV drawings, the engines themselves were a bit of kitbash from an ISSCV and another source though, but operation principles and purpose are exactly the same; to keep it from being an non-aerodynamic rock at low speeds.

Such a configuration might have helped at Ice Planet Zero. ;)

Any sort of acceptance of real-world physics would likely have helped on Ice Planet Zero...of course I still wonder, just how many Ice Planets were there that they felt numbering them was more efficient than simply naming them...
