What you've proposed isn't quite sensible... I think. The assumption
would be that if it takes 4 CC to accomodate a marine in an awake
state in transit, it probably only should take 1 or 2 in a lander (he
won't need a bunk, or so much LS). If he rides in SG2/DS2 vehicles,
he would only take 1. I would assume an SG2 vehicle (and probably a
lander) has enough LS to get him to the surface (or back) for that 1
CP. For long term stays, 4 CPs gives you the full deal.

This may have been what you were saying, but I think not.
