Thanks for the comment. It is a zero-gravity fighter so would be attached to a carrier or capital ship would have a specially designed harness on its mother ship for non-pressurised environments. The pilot would also be able to enter/exit using a standard boarding ramp in pressurised hangars as well. It isn't built for atmospheric entry, though, so would not have to contend with surface landings. Hope that answers your question.
Thanks for the comment. I agree. Having something to relate to makes it far easier to give it form in the imagination. It's easy enough to draw ships that no-one has ever seen before but making them reminiscent of something the viewer might have seen already helps make them believable.
