My only thought is that it doesn't look like it's got the legs (big tanks etc) or thrust to go to the gas giants, which in the universe was the destination for at least the gas miners, so they feel like short range craft, short as in Earth/Lunar orbits.

I must admit I like the contained design, much more sturdy than mine using the modules so this feels more military over the modular civilian designs, which can fit the universe fine.

Makes me want to go back and do a British warship now but I'm knee deep in the Defender.

well to be honest, its meant to be warship corvette designs, and gunships. with fuel tanks positioned at the rear of the ship. while everything is enclosed in whare the crew would be located. i would think that it would have enough fuel however it would be alot more heavy mass wise. perhaps that could be reason for lack of fuel aswel so even though its amour it more capable

Long range comms might also be an issue without directional antenna (dishes)
