Yep. The Technomage Pinnace.

Wrong universe, unfortunately...

Or an Andromedan Devastator. Possibly. Very Happy

heck that's the idea! A well oiled automated machine that could take me and my friends and family on adventures throughout the universe..

with minimal work to do on the ship, and why not a bar and lounge area for some fun! that's the greatest idea yet! thanks! how about an automated bar tender computer that is programmed to act like a good friend.. and mix awesome drinks!

Romulan Ale anyone?? Very Happy

Sorian Brandy?

hmmm Not sure, but the Andromedan Devastator may be the way to go.. imagine a (Mudd style fembot force to man, ahem pilot the ship..) now that would be fun considering the Andros use robots anyways for their conquests.. might as well reprogram them to servants and ride in style..

a Tardis of sorts..

a pleasurable exploratory ship, with some serious guns for defense.. and maybe some new engines to beef up speed around the galaxy..

now that devastator ship sounds like a plan!!

heck why stop there.. we could always do that to the Dominator and run around the universe with some serious power as well..large enough to put in some self sustaining gardens and a few recreational party habitats.. jacuzzi anyone!?? hmm indoor pool under a collapsable dome that opens the top of the Andro ship into space to see the stars as you swim in the water park of the future..

then set the gravity to off, and whoa look out!! the Ultimate Water Park party!!

Well, it's a two- or three-man ship, but here's one for you:

I did that a looooooooooong time ago, back when I was first learning the CAD program I was using (FloorPlan Plus), so give me a break on the art work.

Yeah, Mike, I saw that, but it was too late to fix it as I had upgraded to the next version of the program by then.

What, my "space truck"? Heck, no. It's way smaller than a PT. The cargo bay is about three half-boxes (ala Orion cargo boxes), just big enough for three standard shuttles in-storage.

Yeah. I was thinking of the one-man trader ships, ala Harry Mudd or Cerino Jones, when I drafted it up. It's based on something I "invented" for a fiction piece wrote. I needed something big enough to carry a couple two-ton trucks but didn't want a full-size ships such as a Free Trader in the story.

Today, the ship in question would most likely be a skiff.

I'd take an Orion ship with an all female crew Wink

Though, come to think of it, that girl on the new movie wasn't that appealing . . .maybe not a good idea
