While watching the sneak peak the other day, I was blow away at the epic size of everything. I am also happy to see a new approach to the reputation system.

Thanks for all of the hard work.

Based on the size of Halo's U.N.S.C. Infinity, which is 5.7 km long and has 17000 crew, the 135 km city ship could house about 400000 people. That seems off to me, seeing as a 3km Borg cube could house up to 130000 crew, though I doubt the Voth would force their citizens into dwelling in alcoves. Say a Borg cube of 3km sustained 80000 crew, doing the math, a city ship could, by those standards, support a compliment of roughly 3.6 million. Dayum. Das big. But if it's as big as that diagram shows, the hell with the Borg. To whoever made that post about why the Voth aren't the lead power in the delta quadrant...in all seriousness, the Feds need to take one of these, and convert it into a blockade runner. Install primary, secondary, and tertiary redundant shielding to the fore of the ship, reroute all non-essential power to forward shields, install ablative armoring, and back that with forcefield shrouded reinforced hull armor. Instant anti-Borg transwarp battering ram. With that, you could literally PLOW through a TACTICAL FUSION CUBE. I can only say, that after this, we can only logically blame all of our galaxy's assimilation issues on the assumed-duty-shirking Voth.

I can't wait for my Tuffli to take on that ship. It will be the most epic battle ever! Okay, may be not the most epic battle. I might just save that for the Constitution-class. Can't wait!

I'll be by your side in my Type-F shuttle.

(that said we need to set up an all-shuttle run at some point if they allow it)

Consider, that thing is bigger than New york City...in fact New York to Philly is only about 156km. 8 million people can fit into New York and a starship is going to have a much larger population density than a standard city (though maybe not my closet apartment New York). Also consider that it actually probably has greater living area than most metropolitan areas on account that it has more vertical space. That thing is way taller than any skyscraper. She's a true titan. Ship must run on the power cosmic.
No...it run's on SPIRAL POWER SO MAN UP AND BECOME THE STARSHIP THAT WARPS TO THE HEAVENS! THAT'S HOW TEAM FEDKLINGROM ROLLS BABY!
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.

The fortress ship comes in at over 7 times longer than a Super Star Destroyer, and has a length that is about 10% longer than the diameter of the Deathstar Mk.1.

The fortress ship is between 7 and 8 times longer than the Titans in Eve.
Any numbers you can provide because I just would like something to be able to reference too.
