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.)
i see your point.. however, one small note to consider is that I skipped the Maelstrom class because it seems to have shuttle doors on the rear of the saucer. That is actually what motivated my suggestions to put bays on the rear saucer on the others... to stay consistent when switching out parts.
