     It is not hostility, it is repressed frustration.
It is to many rule changes, and to many 'NEW racial weapons.
It is pseudo-fighters, and 'Tomcats' in space.	 

Entering EGO mode:
     By the way, I have my own personal rule in SFB.   One day
(in a campaign, as Klingon) I decided to capture all the fighters
at Komania.   I took 4 D6 and 2 D7 cruisers cranked the ECM up to 6
and flew thru the 250 fighters (they could not get a lock to fire due
to the ECM) and dropped rear shields on the way out and beamed the 
pilots onto my ships.	The security details were assigned to target
practice in the transporter rooms, oops!   After a few passes I just
picked up the empty fighters (with a tractor) and flew away.   I had
a lot of fun!	Thus came the rule that a crewman cannot be beamed
off a ship unless he wishes it. (personal screen)

Bye for now,
