ok then i dont feel so out of place ... got a ship i gotta get going on for someone and it needs a shuttle ( 10 man ) and a small 2 man scout craft with wings for atmospheric flight ... while scrounging my parts box i found a bag of trek parts .. 3 old paitialy assembled tos exploration kits .. got looking thought those and thought hey with a bubble canopy and a small set of wings and something to look like an engine in the back and small skids for landing .. the communicator as is would be perfect for the 2 man craft in 1/72 .. could even add in a cockpit from an old 2 seat aircraft kit or just scratch something up quick to look like a cockpit maybe a snowspeeder style canopy .. then the shuttle .. thought if i cut here and here an the phaser kit it would make a cool semi triangular craft .. just gotta make it a bit taller and add some greeblies and its done .. its a no frills freighter so things are utilitarian so to speak but will have a bit of style to them somehow lol

The problem with a Squirrel class starship- no one remembers where they parked the ship.
There are Times, Sir, when men of good Conscience cannot blindly follow orders. You acknowledge their sentience, but ignore their personal liberties and freedoms. Order a man to hand over his child to the state? Not while I"m captain.
