NASA would go faster if their budget and their plans didn't depend on whoever is the current president.

president 1 : We'll go on the moon in 2020 and Mars in 2030!!
president 2 : Nope, there's local priority first, I'm gutting your budget
president 3 : What? Sure we'll go back to the moon, but you only need 50% of that budget
president 4 : What matter is cheap access to orbit, stop anything beyond that
president 5 : I don't care about space at all, just make sure no astronaut ever die of anything and I won't fire you
president 6 : Let's make a Space Force!! (that's for military budget btw, not yours)

Also NASA design are safe, redundant and would get science done.
For SpaceX it's almost secondary. It's all PR stunt and trying to come up with solution later.

I never understood Star Wars' penchant for off-balance ships like this. Quite a few of them have cockpits off to the side or are otherwise made asymmetrical.

Most of the Rebel and Imperial ships seem to be at or near symmetry, but ever since they turned a burger with an olive pinned on the side into the Falcon, I guess they kinda just go with wild asymmetry to denote underworld contractors.

Anon, I don't know how to say that to you but Star Wars design never made sense, the little verisimilitude it had was washed/destroyed as talentless artist and script writers added their touch to milk the franchise.
And James Cameron didn't cared much for practicality in the first place.

Take your ship, what's supposed to be the original reason for the Falcon offset cockpit -also explaining why it's a freighter with a powerful/wide engine- is this picture.
Years later they are desperate to have any variation that count as original and fit World War 2 in space aesthetic.

You should search for asymmetrical WWII plane btw, some of them are really surprising.
>>
>>17147028
I've never liked this solution. The cargo train would eat up half of the pilots field of view making him reliant on sensors to pilot at which point it doesn't matter where the cockpit goes

This. The crew has no view of anything forward and to port and the YT-1300 has no other viewports. Hell, they have almost no port side awareness anyway because the cockpit is set so far back and the "forks" would be in the way. I guess it's mitigated by the cockpit being set a little higher than the rest of the hull, but it's still kind of messy. The Solo configuration has the same problems.

Pushing is easier than pulling and a good field of vision is not a requirement for this job, unlike what Solo do with it, the ship job is to push thing from A to B through a relatively safe space. IRL huge ship are helped for mooring maneuver. And with the way it's built you could have a second YT-1300 on the other side of the train for maneuvering, assuming Tractor Beam technology didn't exist.

We all know a realistic spaceship would be controlled through sensors and computers. The only reason's there still bridge on ship nowadays is for redundancy, old design and because it's cheaper than sensor (especially when you don't need airtight hull).

If you know a better solution, I'm all hear but my requirement are very high.
- it need to justify the powerful engine, bonus for wide engine
- it need to justify the offset cockpit
- explain why it's a freighter with the worst internal space you could ever imagine
- and of course it's shape at the front. the escape pod idea was retarded and shit, just like the movie.

They went to all that trouble but they couldn't even be bothered to put an agro ship in there.

You know, the reference made back in '78

They're ridiculous looking and completely pointless. You already have that wave-motion-gun-tier superphaser that punches through hulls and shields like wet cardboard and can apparently fire continuously with zero recharge/power penalties. Why even bother firing anything else let alone adding stupid shit like that? The ship looks infinitely better without them.
>>
>>17150690
Do you know what they actually do then?
>>
>>
>>17150791
This raises questions,

Is there a reason for the design? Its kind of like a Final Fantasy airship if the boat beneath the gasbag had become entirely superfluous.
>>
>>17150717
Did they ever do anything in AGT?
>>
>>17150797
Yeah, I won't deny it's one of the odder leijiverse designs.
>>
>>17150791
I need the webm of them launching flying saucer.

>>17148289
I've always hated Stargate ship design.
They clearly backed themselves in a corner making the first one, trying to make human ship recognizable, utilitarian but inferior. Except they didn't have the gut to thread away from Battlestar carrier-battleship so it had to be gigantic and overpowered.
They should have gone with small frigate and dropship, that would have fit the themes and gave them more room.

They really should have explained that the Narada was reverse-engineered Borg tech gone mad or used an actual Romulan-looking ship, but I guess they wanted an intimidating looking "bad guy" design.

All they had to do was have a moment where the shields were disabled in that section, or whatever, and they needed to use that opportunity right then and immediately.

Of course, that wouldn't even come close to fixing that mess of a film.

That wouldn't solve anything, it would still acknowledge that every single spaceship is capable of genociding planet.
The Empire didn't need death star, just to mass produce 1000 FTL drones.

They ignored the most basic rules of all science fiction, to not make common device that double as weapon of mass destruction.
>>
>>17152972
Also the Rebels didn't need to bother with the trench run and stolen death star plans, they just needed to 9/11 an old freighter into the DS.

>They really should have explained that the Narada was reverse-engineered Borg tech gone mad
Isn't this the actual STO explanation?
>>
>>
>>17153005
pretty sure that's the real explanation in a few things
I think it also appears in the Prime timeline comics that establish the setup for FlareTrek 1 (which also feature Data's personality having commandeered B4's body because fuck B4)

I always expected that was setting up for the Borg to be the big bad in FlareTrek 3, especially with bald background bridge guy with the cybercrap saying there was some stuff about his character that couldn't be revealed yet. I wonder if it ran afoul of the "stuff that the tv license owns vs stuff that the movie license / Bad Robot owns" issues.
>>
>>17153011
I hope it's not a rights issue. Beyond was enjoyable enough that I'd look forward to Flaretrek 4 having Borg, but Discovery doing it would be... just please no.
>>
>>17152990

Yes...but would it have gotten the same penetration? Probably...the real problem is the chain reaction.

CBS and Paramount have no fucking clue what they are doing. The fact that they let Alex Kurtzman be in-charge is clear evidence of that.

What are some settings with ships large enough to have their own lakes? Obviously, the Culture. The only other one that comes to mind immediately is Weber's Fourth/Fifth Imperium, though I'm not as well read in big ship SF as I'd like to be.

Are you stupid?

When you pilot a mobile suit you aren't looking out a window.

Even today we have ways of viewing things remotely despite the view there from the MK1 eyeball being obstructed.
>>
>>17156505
The things you're talking about literally don't exist in Star Wars. Even capital ships are piloted from the bridge looking out a window.
