It was with great interest that I read your proposals for Project M.A.D.A.M. (forwarded on to me by my Chief of Engineering). While I certainly have no objections to playing a support role in fleet actions, indeed, many of my crew are skilled in providing such support for just these occasions, my interest in this project is entirely based on the possibilities of what could be achieved outside of war time with such a vessel. Such a ship would be ideally suited to deep space exploration and colonization efforts.
Have you considered approaching this project with a modular design in mind? Being able to outfit such a vessel with processing and production facilities instead of medical and engineering would be a great asset in providing support for fledgling colonies.
Please, I implore you, if Project M.A.D.A.M. goes ahead and these ships are put into production, I beg that you consider allowing me to serve on one.
