The last episode of season 5. Battle of Tarazed, Andromeda use all its weapon and "hunter Killer drones" 40 salvos. --Blix exx 05:28, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
-- In episode 3x11, Delenda Est, Rommie announces she is emptying missile tubes one through two hundred, but it is said elsewhere in the series that there are only forty tubes. Which would be correct?
- Seeing as there have been errors in 'official' measurements, which have even been admitted by Wolfe, 200 would probably the more accurate measurement. Acaeton 13:17, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
- Everywhere else in the series it says 40 though, so 40 is correct. 188.8.131.52 03:42, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
- Wrong! 200 is a much more reasonable estimate based on the fact that on can not empty "missile tubes 1-200" if there aren't 200 tubes. The Siege Perilous has 180, the DSA1 has something like 60, so 40 is a very illogical estimate. The Andromeda carried 40 nova bombs from the ship's old days, perhaps that has you confused but 200 is the logical number.184.108.40.206 03:33, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
- Rommie stated she had 40 tubes in "The Prince". The 200 figure is from the post-Wolfe era. The DSA-I and Siege of Perilous (a DSA-II) were designed specifically for offensive purposes, hence their greater number of tubes. Charlotte353 (talk) 14:14, September 15, 2012 (UTC)
- Entering the realm of conjecture, it is actually possible that both 40 and 200 are correct:
- A) The 40 missile tubes could have non-sequential numbers (i.e. "tubes 50 through 100" could be just ten tubes). This could be done to confuse enemy units about true capabilities or simply a design feature.
- B) There could be more than one type of missile launcher on Andromeda; the 40 Big Boomers, 60 "ruin your day" medium tubes and 100 anti-mine poppers... for example
- C) The ship could have been designed with 40 tubes and later upgraded to 200; there is certainly enough in canon to support such an upgrade at some point "off-camera" (this would be a very likely possibility).
- D) The ship could have been designed with 200 tubes, but had only 40 installed OR had them removed as some point.
Why was the gallery changed? It's there to hold all of the images floating around the page, so why wouldn't the orthographics' be in the gallery? Acaeton 13:07, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
Not realy. Human can't be a system and person, who control the ship in slipstream, is more like a pilot. Navigation System is something that helps to navigate (GPS, computer, compass). There was kind of slipstream portal map/database, maybe this could be a Navigation System Vilnisr T | C 19:53, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
But the Andromeda can't travel through slipstream without a human pilot, and most of the time can't move through normal space without one, so they are an integral part of the ship as part of the navigation system. Acaeton 19:57, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
- but can You call car driver, ship's captain or F-15 pilot as a Navigation System. All of those vehicles can't move without human, but it doesn't make human a navigation system. Vilnisr T | C 20:07, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, but a navigator is someone who helps keep a ship clear from obstacles and other hazards while guiding it from place to place. Although a navigator and pilot use aids such as computers to help them workout the details, humans or a living crew member are the main navigation component. Acaeton 20:17, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
- how about to move section to "Crew Manifest" and rename it to "Navigation" or meake a new section with this name, like:A pilot is not a navigation system, a navigation system always no matter what one is discussing a refference to the navigational technology it employs. The ship is quite capable of navigating itself it does not need a pilot even for slipstream, the ship can enter slipstream all by itself it will just get lost....furthermore een if that was the case you can't use the word "human" because any organic can pilot slipstream. If it needed a human then how was Refractions of Dawn allowed in the pilot's chair? 220.127.116.11 03:33, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Name of BridgeEdit
I'm going to try and make an article for the Bridge of the Andromeda, but i'm not sure what to call it. Is it "Command Deck," "Bridge," "Command Center," ect. I have no idea whay to name it, any ideas? Acaeton 17:28, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
The size of the Andromeda Ascendant in the episode Deep Midnight's Voice is said to be "7 aircraft carriers long...but the site says that it is only 3,000 feet long. Any idea why there is such a descrepancy? Acaeton 02:09, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
I'm more concerned with the fact that if the Andromeda is truly 1301m long, then its beam is clearly 633m as an analysis of the dorsal view shows, not the 976m shown in the official specs. And I thought Star Trek was bad for its ship size inconsistencies... astralphoenix777 01:55, May 23, 2012 (UTC)
This page says Andromeda can travel at 40% light speed without killing the crew, however in one episode Rommie states the enemies are ten light seconds away and she clearly gives a ten second countdown. Thus you can infer that the Andromeda can move roughly the speed of light with out the slip stream drive. -Zar Pof 21Jan13 08:53
- The page, or atleast the infobox, actually says "atleast 40 PSL" so this probably isn't a contradiction. Moreover to humor that point there are other things to account for that without a direct scene refference may be hard to address specifically but none the less remember:
- the speed of a starship when moving at high acceleration is relative it's AG fields and intertial dampeners so if those are not operating at peak capacity the maximum safe speed is greatly reduced
- if the ship was recently or currently in a battle the AG systems could have been damaged at that time but without knowing the specific scene it's hard to know whether that is the case
- while this is probably not contradictory language in my opinion I suppose it is worth noting that the writers have many inconsistencies on details of this nature so it could be a goof up on the writer's part in stating both in the series

Andromeda having a new CO?
Nothing about the former and current crew? All of a sudden in S3E16, there are a bunch of slipfighter pilots and other personnel on the ship. No idea when they got there. BrentNewland (talk) 04:42, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
