Footnotes

  1. “Pilot.” Also, given dialogue from at least one episode, non-carrier battleships exist in this show.
  2. “Sugar Dirt.”
  3. Unverified.
  4. While the John F. Kennedy-class has always been established as FTL-capable, however, what form that FTL propulsion took was unclear. The “Pilot” mentioned the use of a wormhole for FTL travel but later episodes did not mention wormholes.
  5. Eight ISSCV storage bays could be seen on the starboard side of the USS Saratoga.
  6. Best guess given online fan data, along with the events and the dialogue from “Never No More” and “The Angriest Angel.”
  7. “Pilot.”
  8. “Sugar Dirt.”
  9. Entire series.
