starship-design: Aircraft Carriers

For the most part, I do prefer to use Aircraft Carriers for comparison
purposes. Occasionally, however, a different one is preferred. For MTBR
purposes, a sub works better. The amount and type of maintenance a subs crew
can and does perform is more in keeping with our needs - except we need
those figures for a vehicle as large as an aircraft carrier...
