The saucer now has two airlocks on either side, both capable of hosting a travel pod. It's a tight fit, but it's a fit.
I do have an option to move plates in to cover the airlock hatches because I thought I'd have to cut to much out of the saucer rim to get it to work, but I think she looks more... functional? this way. It feels more like a real ship to me, and let's be real, are you going to have yet another set of doors and mechanical parts that could gum up the works? The Enterprise Refit and later ships have zero covers over several of theirs, the only exception being the ones covered by plating in the saucer. I guess I'll leave it as an option.
I think I'm done with the exterior of the saucer at this point. So from here I'm focusing on the back end of the Liberty.
