In comparison to some of the larger states in the country, Rhode Island is actually quite small. But the state’s total inhabitants are quite staggering.

In Asterix and the Soothsayer the soothsayer dissects a fish while Astrix and the other villagers watch him. This is a shout out to Rembrandt’s famous painting of The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp.

Combat takes place at such distances and sufficient fractions of c that space combat is described as being displayed as an intersecting mesh of tri D cones predicting where the ships you can see might actually be now, and more importantly might actually be by the time your missiles and inert mass ammunition gets to them. It’s explicitly stated in Hellburner that most of the skill of fractional c firefights is being able to predict what your opponent is likely to do partly on interpreting the data in light of tactical objectives, partly based on knowing them by name and reputation. Even the titular Hellburners (properly called Riderships) avert the carrier equivalent in space as well they are more like warships in their own right, with a command crew of 4, 30+ operational crew and capable of carrying a contingent of Space Marines. The only things they lack are the Carriers years long supply stores and Jump Drives. The combat is also fairly well justified. Jump Drives only work if ships are far enough away from stars planets not to be affected by gravity. Stations tend to orbit planets.
