Am I missing something here regarding "over 100%"? There are 11 lines there, which look to be 0 to 100 in increments of 10, which means the longest % complete line would be about 100%.
Yes, that shot is too tight to show the entire "Star Ship Status" chart. Here's what you're after:

The wider shot shows something beyond the 100%. Some people think this means "more than 100%," or that the line is "starting over." I think that all this indicator means is that "now that the repairs are 100% complete, the ship now has a green light to get back underway again." I think the little green dot/bar is just a "checkmark"--a "good to go" marker--which is why it's green instead of red like the bar graph lines, and why it doesn't have any percentage figures up at the top of the column. It also explains why it appears only on the vessel that has completed 100% of its repairs. (You people do watch the episodes, and not just the screen grabs posted here, right? )
