the Hermes seems to have insanely huge thruster assemblies, similar to the Cochrane science ship.
Stargaszer: seems to have a lot of shuttle bay textures all over it, and phaser strips not textured correctly
Dakota: phaser strips not textured correctly
Despite how the game represents the Fleet escorts, they are fairly small things; probably about Defiant sized. There really isn't room between the impulse exhausts for a shuttle bay. They would have to be moved much farther apart and the area for a bay would have to be made much larger.
As for how much scale in the game is off. CapnLogan said sometimes off by up to 400%. Perhaps the Capn will pop in and tell give us a true size comparison to see whether or not the thruster ports are to scale and if it is large enough to have a shuttle bay. However, if the thruster ports are to scale, then the ship would be quite small indeed.
( No more updates til Monday. Taking a short holiday.)
