The size of your ship is definitely data corruption. Fun things like this happen. Once got a battleship under my control - wish I'd saved that game before I crashed the game by telling it to return to base. Not that it had any home base to begin with...
By the look of the english.dat file, the PURSUE WITHOUT INTERCEPTION string is surrounded by a series of other strings that aren't used in the game. Like the directions of the compass, SELECT, ACTION, CONTINUE, INTERCEPTION, PURSUIT, etc. This suggests that there was possibly going to be a few different interception options that never made it to the final cut.
I guess some of the actions may have been cut due to redundancy. You can already pursue without intercepting by simply staying in stand off range and minimising the intercept panel.
