As long as the "womb" absorbing the smaller ship is at least 50% the
size of said smaller ship and you only absorb the bio-mass, you should
be OK.

Eg., if you want to absorb a Sa'An'Tha (TMF10) you need a womb which
takes up at least 5 Mass in the mothership, and you'd absorb only the 3
bio-mass and not the 7 remaining Mass. The Mass 3 drone wombs described
in FB2 can't handle ships larger than 6 Mass.

"Assembling"/"giving birth to" anything larger than a drone fighter
takes much too long to be done during a battle though, so the above
process is strictly one-way - you can *absorb* the bio-mass of a
smaller ship, but you can't use existing bio-mass to create a smaller
