Watching cool illustrations of starships—like these fantastic designs by Mack Sztaba—is always an exercise of painful day dreaming for me. I always get into a black hole that gets me to new worlds and vessels that I would never see—which really sucks. I wish I were there, on board this Zeus cruiser.

Hopefully we will at least get to see something like this, though.
