Because it was deemed that battle cruisers would be at their most efficient without the necessary technology to dock with a supply ship, huge space stations were built that could effectively repair and resupply an entire fleet of battle cruisers. With six magnetic docking ports, each space station has a crew of less than two-hundred people, as it relies on the crew of freighters and the cruisers they are resupplying to transport supplies. In fact, most of the crew the space station houses pilot repair vehicles. Time to stop my nerdy ramblings, now ask yourself, what would Jesus do? Post a comment, that's right.
