Starfighter Complement: 6 fighters (usually EA Starfuries)

The Hyperion-class Heavy Cruiser is one of the oldest ships still in service,
(together with the older Starfuries) they were all built before the Minbari
War. Not many of them survived the war, but those who did have since then
been upgraded with better weapons. There is neither artificial gravity or a
rotating section on board, so the crew works in microgravity. This makes
these ships only suitable for shorter missions, while the crews on the large
Destroyers with rotating sections can stay out for longer patrols. The Heavy
Cruiser also carries Starfuries on board, and it is the smallest Earth
Alliance ship than can open their own jump-point. The Hyperion-class has
also recently been upgraded, and they now carry beam weapons and otherwise
improved weaponry.

Pages 2702, 184, 3571 have different stats for Hyperion class Spaceships. I do agree with you in that the differences where because of various refits and upgrades, but not so much as the differences of lengths and cargo capacity would suggest. The Hyperion would I suspect function as a Frigate vessel because of limited consumables, drive/fuel and the need to rotate the crew to avoid the effects of extended time on the body in zero g environments. This of course could be mitigated in part if a rotating habitat section was installed just fore of the engine area (which seems suspiciously under used.) Regards, Cyril

Different versions by different people. I'm afraid I can't speak for where any of them got their facts and figures, but this particular one was originally put on "The Dark Lords of the Sith" website back in 2003'ish by Ryan Matheny, so it's entirely possible that new and more accurate information has been released in the intervening years.
I've always welcomed anyones version of things, which is why there are multiple versions of things on the site, as different people approach stats in different ways.
