hello i have created a new shuttle type.
it is called the AMELIORATE class, the word Ameliorate is another word for repair.
The deflector array is also the Ameliorate Cannon, it +500 hull strength every sec. for 8sec. the color of the beam fired is phaser orange.
It can repair itself or other vessels on its team. The Ameliorate Cannon is a special ability only available to this class of vessel.
The inspiration for the design of this vessel is from the delta flyer (windows) and the jhemidar fighter (body) http://www.flickr.com/photos/61158127@N03/?saved=1
