It sems that I read in Full Thrust somewhere that you could perform a
by apply a movement order something like 1P1S.	Now I do not remember
I saw it, but I do remember reading it.  It could have been in another
book entirely.	Now it does state under MAKING COURSE CHANGES:, 1st
paragraph, Full Thrust pg.6, "A ship making a course adjustment is
_assumed_ to be applying a sideways Thrust vector movement in that Game
Turn."	Now it does not say that one cannot aplly thrust vectors to both
sides, just that it is assumed that is all to one side.

To further muddy the waters, it seems I remeber reading that when making
couse adjustment that was to both sides that the side that had the
adjustment had to be applied first then the lower one next.  That
make alot of sense to me - well actually it does on the surface but when
you are dealing with a ship that has a thrust of 6 (only allowable 3

I don't know.  I can't remember where I saw it and can't find it in the
Full Thrust book now, so maybe I imagined it - yeah . . . sure . . .

Hey where can these be found?  I want one!  :)
