    The Northrop class is a rapid-production spacecraft roughly the length of a Saturn V. This particular ship is featured in the stories The Sagan Incident and the forthcoming New Horizions. http://www.exisle.net/mb/index.php?showtopic=41335

    It was built mostly out of cardstock. It's basically a highly modified Tomahawk missile kit from Fiddlersgreen http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/AC/aircraft/C...sile/cruise.php

    The ship's logo was inspired by the flying wing aircraft that Jack Northrop Developed for the US during and after WWII as well as the B-2.
