Years ago, I purchased some wonderful spaceship models by Ian Palmer from the Renderosity Marketplace. I have been looking for a way to make use of them ever since. In this design, Ian Palmer's models are used as various modules and smallcraft for a large interplanetary freighter that has been retrofitted with early warp-jump drive. The freighter's crew quarter centrifuges have been replaced with alternate crew modules outfitted with artificial gravity generators. The giant vessel now serves as an interstellar exploration vessel carrying a variety of small interplanetary scoutships and shuttles.

Wow, I love the "ugly functionalism" behind it. It's not really an ugly ship at all, but it's got that "Form Follows Function" philosophy that really shows through. A ship in a vacuum doesn't need to be streamlined, and internal pressurized space is at a premium, so naturally the "skeleton" of the ship is on the outside, to maximize the internal space. Wonderful!
