Energy of a Dreadnought slugEdit

Hi, I did some math and thought it may be a good idea to mention that the rounding problem (mentioned here) leads to a wrong kinetic energy if we calculate the slugs energy assuming a speed of 4025000m/s we get an energy of 38,72566 kilotons of TNT equivalent (which is better to be rounded to 39 kt). Calculating the energy with 1.3% of the speed of light in vacuum or 3897302m/s we get 36.30709 kt TNT equivalent. So by rounding the speed to 96,8274% the slugs energy is reduced to 93.7546%. The conversation at the citadel where the sergeant is urging his men to be precise he should have been more precise himself. 6.2454% rounding error may be the difference between destroying the enemy's ship or being destroyed.

found the talk here, maybe it would be a good compromise to mention the obvious wrong mathematics in the Trivia section do satisfy us Nerds ;) Sir Ullrich (talk) 10:06, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Freighters? Edit

Should we add the stats and info about the Kowloon and Athabasca freighter, or freighters in general under the starship section? --Perkins98 (talk) 22:38, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
