The Fiber Stream
has been named "The Runabout". I took possession of the trailer this afternoon. Not only has she been named, price shopping for her detail striping has begun.
Once the gelcoat is revitalized, I plan to complete her rehab by detailing the Starfleet Academy insignia on the open space to the right of the door. Lettering adjacent to the logo will say, “Cadet McShan”.
On the rear will be the logo of the Federation of Planets and the name RUNABOUT in all caps. Beneath the name in smaller letters, the phrase “Battle Class Prototype” will appear. I haven’t figured out my NC numbering yet.
A small Starfleet insignia will appear to the left of the door. A line of striping will run from the tip of the symbol and from the tail of the symbol. This double line of striping will circle the trailer
Yes, I thought about this. If the trailer were a 13 footer, it would be a shuttle pod. If it were a 16 footer on a single axle
it would be a shuttle craft. The double axles make it a runabout which has battle class, spitfire capabilities. If it were a larger trailer, it would be a plain shuttle. The shape isn’t aerodynamic enough for it to be a flyer class scout and reconnaissance vehicle like the Delta Flyer.
