Banner cross section

Credit: Inspiration for this Travellerisation comes from the Space Opera game. I forgot to credit it when I originally posted it.  Given how much it resembles a Type S Scout anyway I already think there was a lot of cross fertilizing going on even in 1981 when Seldon;s Compendium of Starcraft I was published by FGU.

  1. Sort of – it goes underneath the engineering section. I guess I should do a cross-section to show how I think it goes together. Either that or it is a Tardis.
