Yay, forum is back! About 18 hours ago I had wanted to post this here but here simply wasn't there.

Hey, it mentions the Starfire game!
"“Warships of Sea and Space”
Form Follows Function Follows Technology by Jim Beall

The shapes of both ships and planes have always depended on technology, so it should come as no surprise that space warcraft should be similarly affected. Such design considerations go back to the earliest warships."

"Rockets soon dominated SF, and came in a great many designs ranging from unadorned to highly decorated."


I'm kind of partial to decorated ones. 8-)
Screw the rivets, I build models for atmosphere, not detail
