Well, the reason I stuck with the ol' D6 roll is that the only dice used
FT are D6s an so I thought it would be better to stick with that rather
than introducing new die types into it.
The different types of Fleet Cons makes sense though. Poorer Cons for
smaller control vessels as might be used in small colonial fleets,
and more powerful ones for the battle fleets. Hmmmm. Have to think
