How does it compare (appearance-wise) to the Nebula class?

I really like the way you put that, Jay.

It sums up what a starship should be about in any story.

Interesting. I read it as a pejorative, somewhat condemnatory of Alvarez' egocentrism.
"Jimmy Connors is a POS."
"Yeah, but that's part of his charm."

The USS Archer IS a Nebula class starshhip. That should have been stated somewhere.

Perhaps I was too "Writer on board"

If I wasn't being negative I'd perhaps have said "A platform for the PCS to adventure from"

As it is, yes, the game role of Alvarez is to be the the "Too cool for his own good" type of character -

I wanted to explore, what is the consequence of loose cannon-ism?

But Li'ira changed the story on me. I worked out the background in some detail as well.
