That's a game I'd wanted to design myself.
What action! A Orion Drive battleship ambushing
a Bussard Ramjet.
With Orion, trivial things like conserving every gram of
spaceship mass are a thing of the past.
That monsterous ship lifted off carrying a huge load of
nuke pumped x-ray laser submunitions, all of the Space
Shuttles, and a small fleet of hastily designed space fighters.
It could have carried the main batteries from the battleship
New Jersey if it wanted.
