Footnotes

  1. “Pilot.”
  2. The Ixion fleet from “Sugar Dirt” had four such ships.
  3. Though never stated on TV, fan artist Georg Joergens gave these mysterious ships the following dimensions (L x W x H): 470 m x 65 m x 2,205 m.
  4. “Sugar Dirt.”
  5. Unknown velocities but sufficient to cover a distance of 12 light-years (Tellus to Earth) in about two weeks.
  6. As the standard Alien fighter was not seen to be FTL-capable, it can be assumed that a larger vessel, such as this one, could be their carrier.
