	I always pictured it as a big disk with X number of Manowars around
it.  Their wings would be fused, like it says.

	I also remember somewhere that the main station (Lionheart?) is
constructed on a similar model, though it uses five (IIRC) Armadas.  With
the "disk" section, the thing could weigh as much as 800 - 1000 tons!
There's mention of it not being able to move under it's own power, but
that every once in a while it gets move with the use of "tugs", which
pull it along.
