True, but its also 'availability' that count's. I _don't_ allow
tec's (K V dont get beams and hu'mans dont get armour or railguns, its
fun ! so you end up playing the best of what you can get)

Untrue!! Name another ship that on one turn is stopping dead in your
arc with shields 3 up then the following turn is blasting you with the
equivalent of 21 A bats !!  or try running a human ship that you have to
roll each turn to find which systems will work!
