    While the subtitle references nuBSG, it also discussed B5, Trek, and SW space combat from a technical-correctness perspective. An interesting read in an unusual context!

    Whatever. I still like me some space carriers.

    Still, this was a fascinating and eye-opening article. Thanks for posting it, Klaus.

    I liked how Weuve states that, while space combat as depicted in sci-fi (especially filmed sci-fi) is kinda silly when viewed against the science as we know it, he gives credence to the idea that we might not know everything about science yet, unlike a lot of these types of articles on the internet that are entirely dismissive.
