Well, based upon today's strip, I think it's possible to come up with a fairly accurate artist's impression of the finished ship.

Correction, dakkagor... the PDCL had a primary annie-plant which's diameter was pretty close to the length of the Athens. See panel 4 of this strip. Big difference. Near the same proportion of difference as 216 vs. 6 10-meter plants. :D

His question stands. How many teraquads could Petey put out at max output?

Q-tip in Caviar?

Could be worse. Keyvn could have been a fan of LEXX.

You most certainly can, for very careful definitions of "properly equip." My favorite would be that your sniper is "properly equipped" if he filled out all of the forms for his equipment properly, and the quartermaster assigned him whatever the supply depot could spare given current supply conditions.

Whether said sniper would consider himself properly equipped is beyond the scope of this musing, but one can venture a guess or two.

Oh, 30 inches that direction?

Why couldn't it be built a piece at a time?
Have the fabber make a nice set of arced plates, and then snap them together. The fabber, or presumably smaller equipment normally used to patch them up could be used to properly fill the seams...
If you take it a step at a time, there's no reason why you have to enclose the entire thing at once, right?

Schlock Mercenary - the only community where people will assume that 30 inches is the diameter of a sniper rifle's barrel without raising an eyebrow :)
