Parsec is 3.26 lightyears (2016)[edit]

The calculation for parsec to lightyear is inverted. This makes all the other calculations in the first paragraph incorrect.
It also confuses distances, area, and volume. Which is the correct starting values for the source? 13:04, 12 November 2016 (EST)

Hey, stranger. Would you fix it to what it should be? Please.

The original source mention in the article says the T5 Core rules: This includes the following information:
There was a time, after the Ancients and before the rise of Humaniti, when another intelligent race – the Kursae – rose to technological power, reached the stars, and then faded to obscurity.
From an unidentified home-world somewhere in now-Charted Space, these sophonts reached out and settled nearly five thousand worlds across half the galaxy.
Over the next thousand centuries these many worlds of the Kursae all followed a common path: a downward spiral to a comfortable low technology level where they are today… sharing a common heritage of myths about their past. -> p. 16
(language) Flash (User) Kursae (Descripition) The Perception-based Poice language of the Kursae. -> p. 133
The Kursae regressed to about TL-4. -> p. 495

So the source material doesn't have the information to correct the article. Are there any other sources?

The only other source is Marc!

Description inaccuracy (2018)[edit]

In the DESCRIPTION area, you say their area was 3000 parsecs across, then later you say their area was only 80 light years across.

A sector is 32x40 parsecs, meaning a 3000 parsec diameter would be 75 sectors tall and 94 Sectors wide (or multiply those by 4 if talking in Subsectors). Since a Sector contains 1280 square parsecs, and a 3000 parsec diameter circle contains about 28.27 MILLION square parsecs, that's an area of roughly 22,000 Sectors. (Multiply by 16 if talking in Subsectors.)

That is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE than the 2 Sector figure you give. (If you're talking about volumes rather than areas, the numbers get even worse.)

As I don't have the reference in question, I cannot correct this.

Out of T5 book. Might have been ammended since last input.
