This comment has confused me for a while, as their ships don't look
Battlestar Galactica at all, and I think I finally figured out what
happened.  Ad-Astra has three lines now rather than just the one.  I
meant to look into the Ten-Worlds line rather than their imagining of
Weber's Honorverse.  The best images I could find were (unfortunately)
on t-shirts (unless you get their calendar, which is pretty, but silly
with two months already gone)


Although the quotes around "realistic" is a bit silly too.  Given
current physics, there a lot of features on the outside of a
deep-space manned space ship that would have to look a certain way to
be feasible.

Sorry again for resurrecting an old topic, later down this discussion
people came to a much more sane idea of what an illustration from the
books should look like:
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over 
 the man who cannot read them."
