Maybe so, but it comes down to how many turns the FT ships can maintain
orbit without being driven off by the defenders.  It would seem to me
to hold orbit for more than two turns would be very difficult.	Base the
game on how long the attackers can actually hold orbit (And how many
survive orbit.)

But then again, having played only one FT game, and no SG2 games, I may
way off base here.
