Oh ya. They definitely over did it on size on the cini. We can all agree on that.
Uh....

There are different sizes and classes of BCs in the Dominion.

There is something called Behemoth Class which is probably like a bigger BC than regular ones. I think the Bucephalus was a Behemoth Class.

Look at the in-game cinematic of hyperion vs mutas after that evacuation mission. Clearly shows the scale was much too large in the cinematic.

It really makes me wonder how many people are needed to operate a BattleCruiser, because the Raiders were down to like 40 people by the time of WoL...

I really don't think the crew was that small. You only got to see and interact with a limited number sure. But 40 people for a capital ship? No way in heck would that work. That isn't even a skeleton crew. That's like a finger bone.

Bucephalus was a Behemoth Class.

Which was the ship the hyperion pulled up to when Raynor met megsks son. And they were the same size. And as seen from the earlier cinematic when you first see the hyperion, it was much smaller than what we saw in the HoTs opening.
Not that it would be impossible to make a bigger BC.
But it is doubtful.

I bet my hater would be really upset to learn I'm making a profit on the youtube channel. Four dollars and 16 cents of PURE PROFIT.

He is now a portrait of jealousy

Why can't everywhere just operate on pacific time. It is the best time.

Possibly. But then again, technically it might be possible to operate with just 40 people. With regards to terran technology by the 26th century, how do you know Raynor didn't just leave the adjutant to do all the dirty work?

To not just run a ship, but keep a ship the size of a battle cruiser running for 4 years, no way 40 people could do that.

Idiot reference.

We will fire several shots from the ion cannon, that should clear anything out of your path.

See? its all about knowing unit counters. the x-wing pilot thought his fighter could counter the star destroyer, much like someone thinking corruptors counter void rays. But really, with the right unit composition, you can take down a star destroyer, you just need support from the ground based ion cannon, like hydras.
