Was my statement of Does Everything Nobody Else Covered, specialising in maintaining air supplies and fixing computers an acceptable skill set?

"Does Everything Nobody Else Covered" is a pretty huge set of skills.

It's almost as good as having the superpower to have any superpower other people haven't thought of.

So, people are saying "large" ship or "small" ship, but those are relative terms. Let's use some figures/comparisons. In response to an earlier comment, naval vessels are non non-applicable here: they can be used as valid points of comparison because they have a certain amount of space on board, a certain number of chambers of various sizes, and certain dimensions. Another good point of comparison might be buildings.

We want a ship with a considerable amount of mass.

"Considerable" is also imprecise. Perhaps it might help people get a picture of what you're talking about if you start with another ship as a point of comparison.

Wait, so are we using ships to compare to space crafts or not?

Another space ship as point of comparison. Preferably a well-known/easily googled one.

I already gave a comparison earlier.

((Definitely larger then an ocean liner if you want anything better then a Ceta Grade AI. Try about the size of a Rorqual.

I can only get figures for volumes on there, but it seems larger than say (in naval terms) a supercarrier? So, about Enterprise-sized?

Not too late, especially, as Harb is probably dropping out.

It's like fifty some times larger then the enterprise. Look at the tonnage.

That's well over our size limit, though.
