Loki Notes:
I really need to stop making classes named with Greek mythology, between the Pegasus, Ares, and the names taken by Defiance class ships, I'm going to run out pretty dang soon. This is probably my favorite "Wouldn't it be cool if..." design. I tried to put together the Steamrunner class and the Valkyrie, and the results are better than I expected overall, though the aft could use some work. I've never been good at making ships look decent from the back, I have no idea why.
