Well, I think Full Thrust should be mutable to cover everything! As 
far as Terrain, I've played with Nebula, Planets Asteroids, 
minefields, Comets, and Spaceship debris. Many of our games are 
Carrier Duels with waves of fighters engaging each other and 
Starships hanging back and engaging with Heavy Weapons while Escorts 
scream in on the flanks. Gunboats are an attempt to make something 
bridging the gap between fighter and escort a "bomber" like a B-1 
carrying SRAM loads... The attack fighter is more like an A-10 IMHO 
and the Torpedo Fighter is more like a Dauntless in WWII
