A Polyhedral Shuttlecraft, Adrift in Outer Space


Most of the polyhedra I post here have one of the symmetry-types which are collectively called “polyhedral” symmetry: tetrahedral, cuboctahedral, icosidodecahedral, or chiral variants of these. For a polyhedral representations of something like a shuttlecraft from Star Trek, though, such as this one, these symmetry-types must be abandoned.

If any doubt remained about my nerdiness, it’s gone now.
