*checks for tail*

I, too, am troubled by my lack of a tail.

I know I am buffeting my way through the atmosphere when I could be slicing through it. I could be saving at least 10% in fuel with a proper trailing edge. I could be passing through the dense fog with far less disturbance to the universe, yet still get where I am going quickly.

I may join thee in this quest for a proper termination of the vehicle body.
