Mark,
for a forum as large as the one you mention that sounds like a good idea.

here things are a bit more "cozy" :)

Yeah, I know. I'm still trying to find a good replacement image hosting site for my stuff, so I haven't put up anything on the net for a while. Fortunately, I still have all my image files saved on my hard drive, so once I do get one, I can post new links. Anyone have any good suggestions for a site?

Well, I've been pretty happy with Photobucket. And whatever Google's photo thing is not bad either.

Took me a while, but I've been updating all of my completed drawings to a new hosting place. While I was doing so, I worked on a modification to the second and third sets, based on some discussions going on about aridas' 50th Anniversary topic. I relocated the engines to clear the pod in the second and third iterations of Ptolemy. I left the original configuration unchanged for the in-universe reason that the relocation was based on operational data from the early years of the tug's fleet service.

Those Ptolemy revions are something different. I kinda like them.

The only concern I have is the stress on the interconnecting dorsal.

It's basically the same dorsal as on the heavy cruiser, so if the stress doesn't cause a problem on the Enterprise, it won't cause any on these ships.

I see. Please turn in your copy of the FJ Star Trek Technical Manual to the drawings of the Mk IX Star Ship Hanger Deck. There drawn into the design concept are two support rings.

But why support rings? Because he knew that from time to time, the ship would experience Newtonian acceleration. Even if the warp drive didn't produce such.

But Ptolemy class starship doesn't. Yes it does. Where the warp support pylons connect into primary hull., there must be an equal to what is found in the Constitution class star ship.

...yes, the third law of Newton and the inertial force which are here applicable for sublight travel for instance.
