But how big are the Purple Bellies' cruisers like the Dortmunder compared to a Firefly class transport? That's what I want to know . . .

The I.A.V. Dortmunder, an Iskellian Technology Solutions Tohoku-class cruiser, is approximately 1200 long, 1000ft wide and 2500ft in height (762m).

With the last figure in mind, a convenient comparison might be made with the Galactic Republic Acclamator Class destroyer at the extreme top right of the size comparison chart.

A relatively modest 378'8" in length (115.5m), a Firefly-class transport ship might usefully be compared with the Corellian Cruiser (151m in length) overshadowed by the Imperial Class star destroyer to the left of the aforementioned Acclamator Class destroyer.

I can't remember the last time running A/V and power cables directly across the floor seemed like a better idea than lengthening the cables and snaking them around the perimeter of the room.
