[22:41] <Thaeris> And for the record, since you enjoy anal matters
Gay sex aside, here's a matter of interest. We know FreeSpace ships are pretty damn big - 17m for a Perseus, compared to 15m for an IRL F16, and 10m for a Viper Mk. 7. How large is the dude(tte) in a Perseus cockpit? A Herc, an Ursa?
Here's a makeshift lineup to show the remarkable phenotypic variation at work in Freed Space: A Zentraedi Simulator
Obviously these dudes were introduced by the MVPs, so there's nothing of, uh, canonical interest here. But it's fascinating to see what seems to be a caste system at work: Perseus pilots are selected for their diminutive size, whereas Ursa and Herc pilots are totally roided out.
I'm too lazy to find an absolute reference and judge their real size, so tell me this, HLP detectives: how big are these people in absolute terms? Precisely how much chance would we stand in a Harlem Globetrotters + Bill Murray vs. Epsilon Pegasi Pegasi space jam?
