I wasn't going to use actual numbers, but given that Eri routinely writes out pages and pages of new rules each week, it's probably not out of character for her to put the plot on hold to scribble down a page of calculations.
The very rough volume estimate is based on a picture I found on memory alpha (which is a super useful resource for silly comics like this one). Rough measurements and calculations led me to conclude that the various cylinders take up about 105,000 cubic meters. Then Eri and myself both looked at the saucer and decided to just assume that it was something like 2/3 of the ship's total volume- me because I'm incredibly lazy, and Eri because she's actually only been through the first few weeks of geometry.
Alex doesn't concern himself with numbers bigger than 30 or so.
06/23/14 NOTICE: A combination of writer's block and the Steam Summer Sale has delayed the production of today's comic. Sorry. I would probably feel more contrite if I hadn't just bought Skyrim and the first two Mass Effect games for roughly $14 total. Regular updates will resume tomorrow.

In lieu of the mandatory "That's no moon!" joke, I shall simply say: Terrence, be glad about your new limbs. You will get more attacks per round this way.

It's pretty big... I guess

Ah, don't sweat it. Five updates a week is a big schedule, so of course you'll miss one here and there.
