Which is why I start using square, cube, and quad roots for increases.

Also, how built up is the typical area around one of your starports when this beastie appears dragging your space ship through the area. At a first approximation I come up with something about 1000 feet or so long, at least 100 feet wide, and about 100 feet tall. If wider than 100 feet, the creature can be lower. As it is, it is going to leave one enormous trail behind it.

Have you really thought this through, with all of the implications of such a creature in a game?
