Xeelee Sequence Exultant Greenship

Greenship from the book "Exultant" from the Xeelee Sequence by Stephen Baxter. Greenships are starfighters in the Interim Coalition of Governance. Resembling massive three-pronged claws, they are armed with three starbreaker cannon turrets, one for each blister (a clear bubble containing one crew member) at the tips of the prongs, and a monopole cannon, which fires spacetime defects. Its trifurcated design was all about redundancy, a ship could lose two of its three blisters and still function.
