Outsider: Highland Shuttle Design by AriochIV Outsider: Highland Shuttle Design by AriochIV
Design for the Loroi shuttle seen here.

The "Highland" is a large VIP shuttle 50m long (with acceleration vanes extended) that is equipped with inertial dampers so that it may accelerate for extended periods at 20g without harming its passengers, and is atmosphere-capable for planetary takeoffs and landings.

The Loroi ships seem very human at times

The Loroi themselves look rather human as well. :D

well that's fine I believe so long as an alien evolved out of primates we won't be too different and thanks again for that help I came up with a race of plant people.

She's a design with nice lines; atractive, practical and I even like the color scheme.

Ah, the ol' Inertial Dampers...

One of those catch-all sci-fi items that make space travel possible.

Lovely design - I could see this taking a jaunt to the Moon and back in a less Space Operatic milieu.

Wait a minute..if there is more concept art for the comic that means the comic is not dead? Cool picture by the way. And more comic pages when the life gives you a chance.

Does it have FTL?

No. It has inertial dampers, but not artificial gravity or jump drive.

Hi AriochIV. Cool shuttle!

Just a small exercise: the atmospherical flaps would turn into a V-wing or delta? ( taking the left side of the ship, let's make 0 recoiled, 90 for delta and V-wing would make around 180) I'm imagining the pressure over the fixing mount.

If you're talking about the vanes in the rear, those would be retracted during atmospheric flight. The vanes are for attenuation of thrust for the main drives (similar to those on the other Loroi ships such as the interceptor), the exhaust of which is too dangerous to use in atmosphere. The visible nozzles on the tops of the nacelles are actually the auxiliary engines, which would be used in atmosphere.
