if the iceni is 944 meters and does not have a fighter bay, then how could the uss voyager from star trek (344 meters) hold shuttle craft, which are smaller than normal fighters?

Fix and modify so that large ships (corvetts to super juggernauts) are bigger so most can hold fighter bays
3 (3.8%)
fix it by subtracting length and width
2 (2.5%)
Don't "fix" anything

Also, Voyager isn't canon. Except for the bit where they went Warp 10 and mutated into semisenescent lizards.

Even that is too much canon.
what is this Voyager thing you speak off? You must have eaten some crazy shrooms. That never happened. NEVER.

I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it.

I just don't think it was up to standards. :P

Fair enough.  It was the first series I got the chance to sit down and watch on a weekly basis while it premiered, so that definitely contributed to my enjoyment of it.

Kirk and Co: Blegh could never get into them, given the choice between re-runs of that and TOS-BSG, i preferred BSG, though the original ST films are quite good.

TNG: Suffered a lot in the early days from trying to figure out how the fans had changed between the old stuff and from to much character experimenting.  Once it all hit its stride though generally TNG was fun to watch with some good story lines and great acting. and the films of course are excellent.

Voyager: early days I didn't like the Kazon for some reason and in general the series suffered from too much "OMFG that came from nowhere and now we are up **** creek".  Later on though the Borg story lines were great and the finale was good, though how to make that storyline stick long term is a bit of a puzzle.

DS9: overall my preferred run.  Steady acting, some good story lines, a more meshed story with less jumping around.  Biggest downside was I felt they dragged the dominion war out a little too long and I felt they were running out of story lines on a few occasions.  Heck I even enjoyed the weirdness with the Prophets.

Enterprise: Suffered from being the inferior sequel, if they ran it between later TNG and early Voyager/DS9 I think it would have been a lot more popular as it wasn't bad but didn't quite hit the standards of the later Voyager/DS9, a couple more series and i think it would have done like the rest and worked out the bits the fans didn't like and produced some fine TV and help keep the genre alive, as it was the fans were expecting more of the later standard of stuff and turned off very quickly when they didnt get it in the first few episodes.

ohhh and technobable constancy, hello this is the FS community we have Zero right to complain about that given what we have to work with for canon.

If the Orion is 2.1 kilometers in length, and I am 1.8 meters in height, then what exactly do I mean by wasting your time like this?

Considering how it's described, this is entirely possible.

It could be interesting to have an entire mod of FS, that was entirely accurate.

Lots of work for what... no benefit though. So yea, while interesting. No... definately No. :)

I approached it as a comedy, was a good laugh.
With al lthe goofy acting and rubbber masks... and silly plotlines.

Best of the bunch and best acting. You can't beat Picard,

Good first episodes, but then it turned into garbage.

Good battles, but that couldn't save it from terrible acting (I'm looking at you Sisko) and silly plot.

First two episodes with all the low-tech were so promisig. No transporters? Pulse lasers? Hell yes!

Then it turned into a even worse piece of s*** than Voyager.

I disagree on the Borg episodes of Voyager being good.

Yeah the stories were exciting, but Voyager ruined the Borg.

"Yeah btw, we're the borg, we can warp around the Galaxy instantly... which is why we send one cube against the Federation the long way instead of opening a warp portal and sending through 500 Cubes."

^ master strategists.

TNG made the borg mysterious and dangerous. Voyager made them stupid. I can't forgive that.
