Default Re: Iolair Tactical Fighter

Indeed she is. I wanted to try to avoid having her require some sort of antigrav support or assisting field for flight within an atmosphere. Trek shuttles, and especially the one fighter that they've shown, are rarely aerodynamic, and sometimes that bugs me. Sure, it doesn't need to be aerodynamic in space, but surely it could save at least a bit of energy during atmospheric flight.
