I did the same thing. Got totally sucked in! Great show.
I recently enjoyed Warehouse 13 and White Collar, but some old ones that hit the spot include Jericho, Sherlock, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, Psych, etc.
then you run into all sorts of other issues. No matter what, it's big enough that mass distribution is going to throw whatever means of gravity control you decide to use out the window. To me, the only reasonable way to do this would be 10 or so layers on the outside (spherically shaped) with such dense deckplates at the bottom, and hollow inside to serve as a hangar or something. Otherwise you'll get crazy gravity gradients. It's big enough to be a moon, so treat it as such. Down is towards the center.
"Screw physics, I wield the Force!"
I've always wondered - why is it layered like a stack of paper instead of an onion?
I've got friends that fly both of these! They are impressive, and supposedly more difficult to land on the boat than their jet-powered cousins. Also, their squadrons make awesome* cruise videos![youtube DqaWdkdFb3Y http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqaWdkdFb3Y youtube]
*mileage may vary depending on your definition of awesome
or somebody smart(ish) needed a good excuse for not having their paper done/not being prepared for a test/etc.
I may actually have to try this. I do tend to be a huge fan of lighter roasts, for essentially the same reasoning.
