It list's the range of weapons such as Heavy Laser: 20 = max 2 range. but how long is that i assume its 2 squares away. but if the speed is Sublight Speed: 50 MGLT how many squares does this equal? or is it like .5 squares per 50 MGLT. sorry i am uncertain of as to the damage of an attack Heavy Laser: 20 it says 50-60 damage but does this apply to all 20 Heavy lasers? if so would the damage be 1,000-1,200 damage
also will the maneuverablity 3.00 dodge 3 attacks or is it 3% chance to dodge each attack

then why add stats? is the most powerful awe inspiring planet killing Star ships like a bus?

Yes. Space combat is upcoming in the nexy year or four. As for why the stats are there, they are there to a) show players and factions the relative power of each ship and b) the various stats impact on the cost to construct these ships, so they need to be there as we can build ships currently.

I also wouldn't take the damage etc amounts at face value, as most likely these will change once the devs get around to testing the combat and tweaking them to balance it out more.
