Captain, Engineering Corps
I wanted to create this topic to show off your ships, and then have support on how to improve them. I'm going to link my fleet and show off some of my weaker designs.

As interesting as it looks, I highly doubt the structural integrity of the Capital ship. For the Frigate, it looks nice, and the only thing I would add to it is a bunch of struts along the bottom. The struts add a good amount of armour, But don't change the aesthetics of the ship too much.
I'll post some of mine later today or tomorrow.
So the first two images are an example of what struts can do to the sturdyness of your ships. You can also see the difference in cost and how it effects your service ceiling.
This right here is my attempt at making a ship that is reletively high, rather than long. I tried to make it look somewhat less of a rectangle, though you'll have to Judge for yourselves.
