I have just got hold of the new David Weber collection 'More Than Honor'

(Details below). A lucky find in the one Belfast bookshop that caries 
many US imports.
Though set in the Honor Harrington universe it does not feature her. Of 
interest to us is an essay by Weber on the setting for the HH books 
which contains a lot of information on how his starships work.
It set me wondering, how would you reflect technology differences in 
Full Thrust? For example the Manticorian navy relies on its 
technological edge and more importantly its vastly superior crew quality

to balance it against the far more numerous Peeps.
Limiting weapon selection and maybe degrading range for some weapons 
seems the only easy way to do it. The system is not really fine grained 
enough for anything more. Crew quality is more difficult, any
