Did a quick playtest or two last weekend (Saturday Night) and found
a problem that I fixed as follows.

The Klingon ships were nigh on invincible. They were shooting too much
and not causing enough damage.

Solution, add 1 dice for all beams (C do 2d6, Bs 3d6 and 2d6 etc) and
6 dice for photons. This not only ups the damage, but it also accidently
fixes the beams.
