Saves mass. Actually makes the dtons smaller as well, since the narrowed neck was not considered.

Yeah, I can't actually determine the exact dimensions of the shafts (there are several, they serve as shock absorbers), so I made a guesstimate and used that. This is based on old tech and uses a fission reactor. The engine is way bigger than Traveller rules call for, so I just noted that the engine section is also fuel storage and called it good.

And part of my problem is that I just looked at the plans again. The original has the mission module with a diameter 2 meters thinner than the pusher plate. It's actually 24 meters wide.

The original plans say that the there's 11,326 cubic meters in the mission module, but running it at a radius of 12 meters and a length of 44.5 meters, I'm getting 20121 cubic meters. Shaving off 25 percent for the cone still gives me 15,090, which translates to 1077 dtons.

The main engine section past the pusher plate is also 24 meters, so I've got to recalculate that, too. No big.
