The Kardashev Scale is a scale (duh) that judges civilizations based on their energy output. There are Three Types: Type I: 1.74×1017 W Type II: 3.86×1026 W Type III: 10^36 W Now, its is said that civilizations will grow like this: Type I: Uses the energy output of One Planet Type II: Uses the energy output of a star and its planets. Type III: Uses the energy of an entire galaxy, the blackholes, stars, and planets in it. But here is a problem: the examples used to describe these types (Star Wars, Star Trek, and others) may not be true types. Example: The Star Wars Civilization covers most of its galaxy, yet its main power sources are disputed, claiming its energy output does not make it a type three. If we assume this is true, its power source is still a galaxy, but not enough energy o make it a type III. \ So the question is: Which is more important? Size? or energy output?
