i suppose; nimitz-type carriers are roughly 90 000 tonnes, so 90 mass,
just within ft2 limits, and the largest tanker, the jahre viking, is 575
000 tonnes, of mass 575. mind you, that is a pretty exceptional ship -
there are probably one or two mass 600 frighters plying the void, owned
a state-owned line (ESU, FSE), state-supported lines (NSL) or supported
via huge tax breaks (NAC). as well as prestige value, they would be
for colonisation - you could fit a whole colonisation mission into one
