Because often times when people say things like "couple" it equates to 2, Several is one that more often equats with 7 more then anything else.

I have two ships that need more information on so what does everyone think the original Praetor-class battlecruiser and Mandator III-class Star Dreadnaught armaments could possible be?

Several does not equate with seven. Many people ignorantly assume it does because it has the same first three letters as seven - S E V.
It's generally agreed to be more than 2 or 3, but no specific number.

Few, several, many. All of them are ambiguous descriptions of amounts (a few people, several dogs, many cars etc.).

Yeah, thats the idea basically. Anthing with limited information, that is not on Wookiee or has stats that dont make sense like the armament of Liberator or Bulwark Mark III Cruisers.

This is correct, but CONSIDERING who these things were written by, Seven is usually a good guess as it was written by the average person that DOESNT know that. When trying to figure it out, you can use the often ignorance of the writer for an implied number in this case.

Its the "Safe" bet.

If its not too much work, starfighter carrying capabilities could also prove a useful tool.

Ofc, when we are eventually done I want to have every relevant stat collected.

Any other thoughts on the Glactic or other stats suggestions?
