Space Fish

spaceship 004Initially I started the outline of this ship with the cruise-ship/PTcruiser design in mind. Once I added the window sections it started to look like a fish. The windows will be compound of many hundreds of smaller windows. The windows are park/recreational zones of the ship. The ship needs to be skinny on one axis due to the method of FTL technology they use. I haven’t decided on a name, but it’s not ‘hyperspace’. I have a second reason to have lots of window space: when the ship makes an emergency landing on a planet, the inhabitants won’t be able to leave the ship for several generations, and they will need the space and sunlight to grow food. While they still live in the dead husk of the ship they will have lost the technological understanding of their ancestors, so no hydroponics.
