Is it possible to see some drawings / schematics of the Saint Bernard-Class here, or on your own website?
here's a novel cover I threw together for you.
Author's Response: thanks for the cover design, it looks really well put together. As for the ship look, I have asked for anyone interested to design the actual look for the ship on the forums, as my artistic skills make stick men look obese. I imagine it to look a cross between the akira and saber.

I like the insight and idea behind the design. Especially the CnC area - it feels like it should have been part of the design all along. Even in a purely medical emergency situation it would be great to have an operations centre to conduct and plan the medical mission and relief. Cool ideas here David.
Author's Response: Thanks. The CnC was a last minute addition into the design last year, when I saw it was something that was missing in other designs and would suit the vessel's missions very well. Really appreciate the feedback.

Interesting thought processes you use to explain ship design and chronology in your universe and fitting enough for the canon universe too.
Author's Response: I have to admit here, that I have researched the idea so much. Many sites like the daystorm institute, advanced design bureau helped in the creation of this article and they basically say the same thing. But thanks for the kind feedback.
