I think he means, decisively engaged, but I'm not sure.  Besides, Mark,
you're exaggerating a bit.  I think the most rerolls I've ever gotten is
six, not seven, and most of 'em drop out in the second and third tiers
anyway.  Though, admittedly, usually with fours and fives, so they do a
of damage. ^_^

What was really scary was when I demonstrated Full Thrust to a friend of
mine up here... we each took a NAC light cruiser and two destroyers.  We
closed pretty evenly, and I had initiative... my first shot was four
and two fives, which popped one of his DDs off the bat.  His return fire
was six sixes... I was amazed, and *very* gratified he fired on one of
DDs instead of my cruiser! ^_^;;  I'm hoping to get Jason to come to
GZG-ECC II.... ^_^
