Cool, I thought it might be something like that. The ships in game are pretty consistent as far as scale goes, and the Intrepid has an actual, known length, which is nice for stuff like this.

See, that's what I'm worried about. If they're rescuing people, that means they're already in an emergency situation. Who's to say the emergency won't overtake the Wallace?

I just bring up the point because you seem to be going very in depth and realistic, and it just seems a bit of a stretch that a ship's maximum emergency capacity wouldn't be able to be fully evacuated.
