As for the site of Liz, I don't think anyone on that board knows besides the people who have been member longer than the interent existed, so to speak. And they are few in number. Interesting though, as to how such a small remark can derail an entire topic. :P As for those who want to find more, she changed her name on that board from Liz to BFL Group to Brichard001, and seems to be less active than she used to be. As for the ship, I think it is horrible, uberwanked, but in a rather comical way, as it wasn;t created intentionally to be uber, but grew to be as such.

Hideous design. And "Two full-scale eight-point turbo-pressurized-induction V-pattern matter-antimatter reactors with quantum-reheat plasma superheater, each feeding 64 Type III plasma flywheel arrays." Um, yeah, okay. If he put "iso" and "mega" in there it would be even more powerful!

What the hell is a flywheel array? Isn't that on a fishing pole?

Heavy metal disk used to keep something spinning and stable.

Listening to Sepultura is probably one of the only times I don't mind being unable to understand the language to which I'm listening. :)

And a flywheel is not necessarily heavy (but it helps except in non-rigid ones,) though it's usually metal; and it's main purpose is to store rotational energy due to it's very high rotational inertia, though it does tend to keep the shaft transmitting the rotational energy stable... more germane to this discussion: unless this starship has a driveshaft, a flywheel is pretty much a wall hanging.

This ship makes me feel guilty, as though I caught in the act of doing something it oughtn't have been doing.

I must say it is a very nicely done blueprint style. But WTH is that supposed to be!

Since when do starships need centerboards?

That is a vertically oriented design as opposed to a cruise liner/warship in space idea. The Brakiri in B5 had a similar design ethic, the Nebula in SW also is similar. I like this idea, although the circular "primary hull" is wrong for it IMO. It should be more Voyager or Sovereign style in shape.
