twice the space?

On the other end of the spectrum, combat landings on a Mercury class battlestar such as Pegasus are a much more orderly affair, thanks to having twice the landing space of Galactica (The Captain's Hand).

is this sourced material, or conjecture, the citation doesn't specify if it was for this fact or the passage in general. anyway, if it is conjecture, I feel I should point out a flaw in this statement, the Pegasus has four active flightpods, whereas the Galactica has only one active, the other being a museum. therefore, the sentence should read:

On the other end of the spectrum, combat landings on a Mercury class battlestar such as Pegasus are a much more orderly affair, thanks to having four times the landing space of Galactica

I felt I should bring this up here first, in case the original fact is indeed sourced in The Captain's Hand, as I do not remember specifically.--CptHunt 07:21, 3 April 2009 (UTC)


  • Checked and confirmed my initial suspicions, the sentence is conjecture, I have corrected it accordingly.--CptHunt 07:24, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
