A ladder was leaning against the starship stand but we saw no crew members at the time.

Any final wiring would have to be hidden within the stand or starship.

At the time, we also noticed red tape on a wing of the ship and the area smelled strongly of paint.

Distressing is visible on some of the other wings. The black and brown paint makes it look a little dirty and rusted.
