Couple questions about the Dominion Battlecruiser
The Battlecruiser is listed as having 2500 crew and 4,215,000 tons of mass. Multiplying the dimensions gives a rectangular volume of roughly 70 million cubic meters.
The Battleship is listed as having 1200 crew, 20,000 troops, and 18,200,000 tons of mass. Multiplying the dimensions gives a rectangular volume of roughly 435.3 million cubic meters.
Does the Battlecruiser's crew include ground troops, and if so, what fraction is necessary for operating the ship? If the BC crew is literally the amount needed to run the ship, then how does the larger battleship get away with needing about half the crew?
The Battleship is 4.3 times more massive than the BC, but 6.2 times as much volume. Most ships as they get larger will have to compact the design, due to structural limitations.
Keep the BattleCruiser page as it is, due to the TM.
Change the Battleship page to the following:
Mass: 33,720,000 tons (exactly 8 times the mass of the Battlecruiser)
Crew: 24,000, plus up to 200,000 troops
Second option is to make a Battleship page that is twice the volume of the Battlecruiser.
That would look like:
Length: 807.6 meters
Width: 660.2 meters
Height: 204.1 meters
(all of the above numbers are taken from dividing the original Battleship dimensions by 2, then multiplying them by the cube root of 2)
Decks: TBD (I have no idea)
Mass: 6,625,000 metric tons
Crew: 5000 with capacity for 80,000 troops.
Weaponry I am not sure about yet, but a rough guess would be making the number of the weaponry proportional to the 2/3 value of the volume (effectively making it proportional to the surface area), but the weapon type and power output would be proportional to the volume. The shield strength would also be proportional to the mass of the ship.
Also, the "Link to this page" in the bottom right of each page for the all of the Dominion ships is not working.
