Crew Size

The DVD features give 25 as the crew. However in the Mutineer, Chapter III, when Reinhard is in the hostage situation on the bridge, I count 13 on the bridge. There are the 2 existing medical staff and the injured captain. The chief engineer and the 3 enlisted characters on the engineering deck, for 20 in total. But then there are shots of an additional 6 enlisted crew in the engineering section, another 2 on their bunks in their quarters, and another 6 in the canteen. It is one single moment in time so those random enlisted people cannot be appearing twice or double counted. The total comes to 34 minimum. Post-hostage situation, the injured captain in his chair has a total of 4 medical staff around him. That makes 36 minimum. However given how long it took for me to find this discrepancy while consciously trying to keep head count, I am not sure whether any normal viewer would notice. Iracundus 23:18, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Wow, that's a major discrepancy you found 0.o How are we going to reconcile that with the DVD features in the article itself? And on a related note, what do you think of listing actual crew members in the infobox instead of just numbers as has been the case for all of our other ship articles? I don't think the former is feasible for most ship articles... Glacierfairy 10:16, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
I would chalk it up to one of those production/continuity errors that can be commented upon at the bottom of the article. Frankly I doubt any random person would notice considering I had to do a deliberate rewatch and count to track. I think the infobox would become too crowded if we tried to list all major characters there. We don't list the captains of the various flagships in the infobox. Any list should go in the main article if someone really wants to list them. Iracundus 10:40, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
