WIP-ArcherScout plans

I've been reading David Mack's Exellent Vanguard series (What I can find of it anyway), and it's been encouraging some thoughts of adapting the Edge of the Empire system to Star Trek. Following -that-, I wanted to try understanding some of the floorplans Masao Okazaki created for this ship my making something a little more definitive.

Sorry for not commenting earlier, but I haven't visited in quite a while.

I worked on this a long time ago, so I don't remember exactly what we were thinking about. But here's a few comments. 
I think the engineering space on the A Deck might have been like a swimming pool, with the warp core in the water and a wall section along the walls. On the side view of the ship I drew you can see the crew standing along a gate. On the B Deck both the Sick Bay (CMO) and Gallery/Conference Room probably extend further outward, much as they other rooms do. That tan thing on top was intended as a surface sensor (I think), so it didn't go so deep. So, rather than all the sensor equipment being on the side, it was probably done under the ship's nose.

Love the Archer-Class and have always wondered if someone would do a full deck plan for her.  Very nicely done so far.
Looks sensible so far, for a ship that size.  Some space could be saved by abandoning some corridor.  On a scout ship, sometimes you need to pass through one compartment to reach another.  Kinda like a submarine.

Between footage from the original series, careful analysis of book details, and architectural references from the Ballantine Enterprise blueprint book.... I'm sure a down-to-the-houseplants schematic is within your reach.
