Logistics and Biological Warfare: Hogs in History - Creator and Destroyer - Extra History

In 1494, among the colonization forces from Spain, eight pigs arrived in Cuba. With multiple uses in culinary and craft trades, as well as their general top-tier hardiness, pigs would naturally propagate themselves throughout the Caribbean, and then to Central, South, and North America--but they were also incredibly destructive.

And chickens.

There should be porkers everywhere where the Solomani stepped foot. And possibly dropped on planets they just passed by.

And cats .

And rabbits.

The Vilani never saw it coming.


Pigs used to be Overpowered

Confederation Navy: Ship Building Policy

One possible rationale for a small ship universe is that the capacity, rather than the capability, of building larger than five kay tonne starships is limited.

Building huge ass jump drives may require inordinately large and expensive manufacturing base, as well as being regulated.

Thus, it may be that per capita, you don't have, and possibly, don't need that many starships exceeding five kay tonnes.

For the Confederation, the capacity to manufacture starships exceeding two kay tonnes may be even more constrained.

Rather than trying to kickstart manufacturing capabilities across the board to cater to all ship volumes, it could be decided only to expand those that could build starships a hundred kay tonnes and over, relying on economies of scale on a less flexible but larger numbers of a specific weight class.

Member states building the 'small ships' makes sense when considering that the Confed gov concentrates on the big ships - battleships, carriers and heavy cruisers.

DGP S&A:
we have found the construction and maintainance of a large, effective fleet to be an incredible expense - especially give our tendency to build large ships of the line such as carriers, battle-ships, and heavy cruisers.

I don't disagree with that, I'm just trying to rationalize the facts as presented.

Defensive leagues, something that wouldn't be permitted in the Imperium, do have the resources to build up sizable numbers, in rather more sizable volumes.
