No. Evaluation is not the same as calculation. Evaluation is a judgment 
based on evidence. A calculation is a computation. There is some 
overlap, but they don't mean the same thing.

*SuvwI' Duj vIchov*/I evaluate the warrior's ship/ (Is it good? What are 
its capabilities? Can it defeat a starship in battle?)
*SuvwI' Duj Do vISIm*/I calculate the warrior's ship's velocity/ (and 
come up with a number like a warp factor)
