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. 

Built and rendered in Truespace 3.1

Looks good!

What if the cut edges of the saucer were angled out a bit from the airlocks?

I had thought about it but it'd eat up a lot of space in a tiny ship. 

And thank you!

It's a bit of uncharted territory for me. I'm usually building interiors for these things ;)

For such little airlocks those little guys are majorly complicated!

Like Scotty says, It's the little things that need the most attention.  The Big things take care of themselves. LOL.

My other favorite nugget from Scotty, "The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."  ;)
