So the carbon tubing makes the ship like this?

No, that ship uses Titanium-A Battle Plate. ACNT is an advanced form of the current day synthetic material known as carbon nanotubing or carbon fiber (its less expensive and weaker sibling). Current day carbon nanotubing is 50x stronger than steel and 100x lighter but is vulnerable to compression, whereas ACNT has structural re-enforcers within the tubing to make it invulnerable to compression. Hope I answered your question.

I'm not quite sure what you are saying about the drifting, but about the Spartans we technically do have those... They are referred to as the super-soldier program in current day but Senior Bush shut it down due to its inhumane treatment of fetus' (they would take human fetus' and genetically alter them to be super strong, super smart, super attentive, etc.). The IAE decided to not be so inhumane and give every soldier the decision whether they wanted their DNA to be altered. And the way we give them the choice is because we discovered through stem-cell research (the non-baby killing kind) a way to alter DNA in the later years of life with virtually no side affects.

ooooohhh... you were referring to carbon fiber, not ACNT lol srry bout that. But ya your right it makes em lighter and more resistant to small accidents.

Oh, ok. Anyways no it isn't like that. Carbon tubing is on a microscopic level not macroscopic and thus we can make it however we want. though our ships corridors usually are vaulted or rounded is some way as it is geometrically sound. Here's a picture to help you guys understand what it is, ACNT is this only it has structural re-enforcers within the circle to make it invulnerable to compression.

Not much, really.
But I have a MOC photo'd and if I can just put them on MOCpages(which isn't letting me)I'll start working on another one.
