Spring Bass Posted August 7, 2012 Share Posted August 7, 2012 Thanks. I'll look up the passage when I get home, but does it seem possible that a significant portion of the ship was destroyed, and this description is only of what remains? Because while large, that isn't really big enough to hold an entire civilization (or at least much of one). For comparison, the Pentagon is wider and deeper than that, and while it certainly isn't 4500 feet tall (even counting the unknown number of basements), it seems like they'd be running out of room pretty quick.I think the weird gold-colored metal that makes up its hull is usually described as not being damaged by the Fall. I'll read the memory in question again (Chapter 12 in TTT), but it seems to have landed without external damage (aside from most of the passengers dying in the crash).The dimensions do seem to indicate not much in the way of internal area. I crunched the numbers, and it has less than a single cubic mile in internal volume. Those Inchoroi would have to be packed in real tight, or perhaps not all awake and active the whole ride between planets. Maybe they live inside the fleshy walls that the Ark supposedly had.
